Well good for Stu - how did you find the key to let her out - there there Pixie I did not know the Devil had twisted your chubby little arm
A disadvantage of being ~Satan - you send him to his room - with Go to - hey right - and you know where he is going
No I have not got my Caramac it is so cold - one lousy degree of Celsius

Yes I see what you mean Finny, if it,s on health grounds you may want the look and flavour of meat without the actual product, but if it,s on moral grounds you wouldn,t.

Stu, I've no idea because I've never been interested in trying it, but flavourings are put into loads of things, aren't they? Quorn do loads of different dishes, including ready meals, now. Have a look around their website and see what you think.
Their mince and pieces are lower in calories than their meat equivalent, so that's also an incentive, perhaps. but not for you, Stu!

Nightnight, Diamond. Think you're right about keeping the heating on, it's cold out there, tonight - just been out with the dogs.

I saw the adverts for Quorn too pixie

The 'chicken style pieces' made me laugh

Why did they make you laugh?

Well if I may put in my two pence - I believe the funny side of it has something to do with "playing" - just the way I see it - if they do not want to eat meat why make something that looks and tastes like it makes me shudder

To make meals using that as a substitute. Besides, I have been told by meat eaters that it tastes nothing like the meat alternative.

PatE, I just had a thought. My mum had a square plastic mould she used for burgers...I think she got it from an Asian place that sold sushi-type stuff. You could probably find one online.

As well as those of use who choose not to eat meat, there are others who, for health reasons, cannot eat it, so, sorry, it isn't really funny. It's a guide towards trying something that previous meat eaters wouldn't have, had it been called 'mushroom derivative pieces'! The 'chicken style' pieces and the mince have no cholesterol either which is, perhaps, another good reason for giving it a go. And, of course, it's lower in calories. Have a look at the website, you might be pleasantly surprised?

HC, it's also true that here in S. Europe they simply cut meat differently. We don't get the roast cuts here in Sevilla that you might find in say Barcelona because nobody makes roasts at home. You may find brisket at a warehouse but from your local butcher you can only get them around Christmas and only by special order. And I've ordered them and had the man say "yes fine" and then on the day just shake his head and say "it didn't come in" (ie I didn't bother because I thought you weren't serious). What would be roast cuts at home, here gets chopped up into "casserole meat" (carne de guiso). It's because traditionally here in the South few women use an oven. Many don't even own one.
I'm sure if you had the Portuguese vocabulary for meat cuts, you would find out how it's cut up and discover something similar. When I first got married I had a cookbook (sadly no longer with me) that showed how they cut up a cow or pig, very different system.

If I get a spare few minims today - I think - just for interest's sake - I may look up the different cuts - according to the Country
~That mold - is of interest - I'll have to look out for one ((Ori))

Portuguese beef is labelled, fry, grill, stew, roast, no clue as to what part. Pork is a bit better labelled. We get english slices, looks like bacon but it's just thinly sliced pork. English chops, usually huge with the skin still on ( pork is normally sold without it) and about two inches thick! Italian slices (look like spare ribs in one piece, but with 90% meat removed. Everything else is either or or off the bone. Like Spain, they aren't into roasting, most meat is stewed. Chicken is the only thing they can't disguise.

So today I went to LIDL and their associated (not part of the company) butcher that's just inside the door had...preminced beef and chicken. No I didn't get any, he's expensive and I don't like preminced. Besides he didn't use the Spanish words for mince, he had "burgers" using that word. One even was "bacon and onion burger." Ugh. It looked pretty anonymous to moi!

In reply to an earlier post on 14 Feb 2013 18:19:24 GMT
EUGH !!! - Ori - hey you are a valued member of the Community - you just take good care - preminced - right - which bits ????

I see the horsemeat story is creating waves far and wide. It can only be for the good if it gets people thinking, and acting. If we vote with our feet, the readymeals people will have to clean up their act!!

Posted on 15 Feb 2013 10:29:29 GMT
Ori - yes!! vote with your feet - so much for trusting your suppliers - I think this will start the Supermarket "Giants" thinking
I have also seen a POST from Pixie - she is having Chinese green beans - well they are beans growing side wise - must be - don't they do everything sidewise

Mr Amazon kindly delivered some sausage skins to me today. As soon as the sausage nozzle attachment for my Kenwood arrives, I'll be processing my own sausages.

Yay for Bear - clever clogs - will you be marketing

In reply to an earlier post on 15 Feb 2013 13:57:30 GMT
Can I come over and help?
I M V U, oh Bear. I've always wanted to make my own sassingers.

Bearman says:
I M V U ? - I've always wanted to make them too, but its the current news that gave me the kick up the behind to do it. I already have the mincer accessory for my old Kenwood Chef Major, and the cost of the plastic nozzle and the sausage skins only comes to about £8.
