Chinese-style five spice pork shoulder, done in the slow cooker for five hours.

As George Formby might say, "turned out nice".

Don't suppose anyone has the hairy bikers recipe for salt beef they're happy share with me???

You were watching that too? Mouthwatering.

I don't see their recipe online, so I assume it'll be in a forthcoming book. But there are plenty of other recipes for salt/corned beef available and it seems simple enough, although the HBs' version didn't use the traditional saltpetre, which is the only ingredient you'd probably have to buy online. The only faff is the time necessary to brine the beef properly before cooking.

Here's one without saltpetre: https://www.growforagecookferment.com/how-to-make-corned-beef/ - American measurements can easily be converted online*, and where it says kosher salt, just use sea salt.

*remember, a "cup" means different things for liquids and solids (those crazy colonials!), but once you have a recipe that you like, you can make a note of it with the measurements you understand best.

Never had Kyrgyz food, but a quick Google suggests lots of meat, potatoes and bread and not much spicing.

Several variations of this

Beetroot, Feta and Maple Walnut Winter Salad

most roast the beetroot but cliced thinly raw is just as good.

A bit of nostalgia, spotted on Twitter.

I'm intrigued by the South Sea Grill.

I have a horrible suspicion that gammon steak and a pineapple slice are involved.

Ah, yes. I was wondering if it was a variation on surf and turf but pineapple would fit more with the era.
