I've been moving steadily towards cheaper cuts of better-quality meat in my diet. They take longer to make good, but the results are worth it. With suppliers like Donald Russell, you might wince at the cost of, say, a beef steak or joint, but cuts like cheek, tail, rib trim are well priced and delicious. Last time I had a fillet steak, I appreciated the tenderness, but was disappointed by the lack of deep beef flavour.

I quite like Nigel Slater's shows.

Now that Greg Wallace .... I could only warm to him if I had a flat iron handy.

I'm going in the other direction: I'm teaching myself to cook steak properly

I get a bit irritated by the patronising attitude of people on tv who say that people on a limited budget should buy cheap meat forgetting that cooking the stuff knocks hell out if a limited energy bill

I don't think choosing cheap cuts should be limited to people on a tight budget, and a slow cooker uses about as much electricity as a filament lightbulb.

 

As for cooking steak, try Heston Blumenthal's method of flipping it every 15-20 seconds. It gives good results, and never forget to let the meat come up to room temperature before cooking and to rest it afterwards before eating.

Maybe they should learn to collect wood and cook on a real fire, or dig fire pits. ;)

I'm a big fan of ol' Heston and I've done that technique of taking it out of the wrapping and let it sit on a wire rack in the fridge for two days and then frying it intensely for 20 seconds at a time. It's really good. Although it helps it you start with the best cut you can afford first.

 

I found when it comes to letting meat rest a while, it will cool down, but it's a piping hot sauce/gravy/butter that warms it up again.

I wrap it in foil to rest, and keep it on a rack over the (still hot, but off the hob) pan.

I was tempted to try his 60deg chicken recipe, low and slow, but everyone else is a bit squeamish and I couldn't find a chicken small enough for one!

I agree with you

As for the steak that's pretty much what I do

I ate at the Caddy Mann restaurant the other day. Extremely good food - I had fricassée of squirrel!

There's a good little video on the Donald Russell website that shows how to cook steak (well one way of cooking steak). I got some steaks off them when they were doing one of their many 'special offers' and have to say it was rather good.

 

I have recently found a local butcher who can tell me exactly which farm his meat comes from (and sounds convincing so probably isn't talking BS) and has some nice cuts at decent prices. Always big queues there so he must be doing something right.
