Just A Perfect Steak

Lou Reed used to like eating steak and apparently his favourite was cooked in butter at high temperature at Peter Luger’s in Brooklyn.

A friend of his drew a rather funky picture (the thumbnail) commemorating Lou and steak, so I can only guess it was really nice. The picture of Lou Reed with a milkshake in New York is unrelated, but its the best i could find at a restaurant.

At least it was better than Warhol’s cooking – the exploding mastic inedible!

Can’t Stand Meat Now

Dete Doherty had a large breakfast the other day, and a milkshake.

Pete Doherty ate a large breakfast yesterday, including four bacon, four sausage and a burger, and finished all of it. It’s not known if he had tea or coffee, but the cafe manager did confirm he had a strawberry milkshake.

He was thin last month at the Royal Festival Hall.

Rump (mis)steak in Adelaide

Occasionally such news stories break; this time an error in the spelling of Angus has sent mirth cascading across the interweb.

The butt of the joke is an Adelaide supermarket. Here at Rage we require independent verification that Anus Beef Sausages are a thing, and not just the whim of a photoshop  prankster, before we would repeat such claims.

Please forward to anyone who may know about this incident. Let’s get to the bottom of it.

Roadkill Supper Club

Chuck Berry

This recipe started out as Sympathy For The Breville – but then it hit a bit of a snag in that I don’t have any bread, any cheese, nor a snack and sandwich toaster to hand. It’s early spring and the brambles are scarce, so the evening’s recipe turned into a late night fruit hunting session.

The benefit of foraging for fruit in an urban environment is that it’s much more civilised; if you look round Soho you may even find a Bohemian Raspberry. The trouble is it’s dark and some of the fruit is toxic, particularly the holly plant which causes nausea and sickness – causing you to Chuck Berry all over the garden.

Find some raspberries. Wash them under a tap

Boil in a saucepan with a quarter cup of honey, a half cup of water, a squeezed orange and grate some of the peel in it too

Boil like for a minute, simmer for 15 mins after. Cool it down.

Snowden The Hole

SnowdenThis is a companion dish to Julian Lasagne, although the two are very rarely seen in the same room. I wasn’t going to divulge the recipe for this as, well… it does utilise my own special secret mixture of herbs and spices which gives a unique tinge to the batter. But what are a few ingredients between friends?

There are rumours it’s been enjoyed in a number of intelligence agencies due to a backdoor in the recipe, so I’ve blown my own whistle on this one. Eating this could very well help with transit… possibly a bit too well. Cook thoroughly, or you’ll be making more unscheduled stops than the Bolivian president’s jet.

snowden-quote

The recipe is as follows:

Find some pork sausages, plenty of them, reduced to clear of course,

Normally you would put these in a casserole dish and just bake, but I decided to scorch them first in a pan

My batter wasn’t great, but ideally you should whisk together eggs, flour and milk so it’s fairly smooth. Mine looked like a snowdrift in a Siberian sausage factory

Place the sausages in the casserole dish, three-quarter cover in batter and heat at 220C for half an hour. You may notice that the sausages are all tied together; ideally separate them before you start baking.

Rage Cuisine Tip:

Mount Snowdon used to be a hill in Wales; now it’s a honey trap operation. Always take care with your sausage.

Cornelius Rooster Drops Right Wing

breibert-kelloggs

 

Kellogg’s, famous for its multicoloured cornflake rooster, has ceased to advertise on Breibart, following a number of controversial articles such as “Would You Rather Your Child Had Feminism Or Cancer?”.

Breibart have responded with a stream of rhetoric, calling the move “an escalation in the war by leftist companies”, in order to “placate left-wing totalitarians.”

Alexander Marlow, editor in chief, added, “If you serve Kellogg’s products to your family, you are serving up bigotry at your breakfast table.”

The relationship has certainly become Frostie.

Whereas Kellogg’s may well find themselves boycotted, I feel their stance is worth supporting. Just Right is surely easier to stomach that Alt-Right. Breibart could do with a kick in the crunchy nuts. Link to Guardian article.

Anchovy In The UK

 

anchovie-in-the-uk

This was a kind of botched British tapas; a melange of anchovy, chicken stew, tuna, fried chicken wings and soft cheese triangles, thrown together like a 70’s punk band; without any thought for good taste.

The anchovy is a strange fish, one of the few fish to become a pizza topping. A highly scented sprat that comes in a jar. Just tip them on a plate and they’re done.

anchovie-ukThe chicken stew was just thigh with the skin pulled off and slow cooked in some water with herbs in it. I opened and added some chopped mixed stew vegetables. It turned out more of a broth and no-one ate it. Not exactly finger food.

The best was Joe’s sizzling tuna, the recipe for this is on the site somewhere.

If punk is the tapas of the urban guerrilla, this is the best fish since Sild Vicious.

Never Mind The Pollocks

never-mind-the-pollocks

First of all you’ve got to be hungry enough to open up the bag of pollocks that’s been festering in the freezer.

Pour milk into a saucepan, enough to cover the fish

Top up whatever milk you don’t have with water and bring to a simmer

Put a couple of frozen cubes of spinach into the milk and defrost

Cut an onion up into little bits and add

Place a jacket potato in the microwave and blast on full power for 6 minutes

Whilst this is microwaving, tip the pollock in the pan.

If it doesn’t fit, it snaps easily by the way

Stir it all round until it seems cooked, the pollock bag I bought suggested 6 minutes

Add herbs and such like to taste

john-lyndon

Add Country Life butter (of course) to the potato and serve alongside fish.

Rage Cuisine Tip:

Never mind the pollocks. God save the bream.
