*Home made foods: My first attempt at peanut brittle and Dry rubbed slow cooked Texan beef rib with potato salad

My first attempt at peanut brittle! My dad loves the stuff so I thought I’d give it a go and leave some wrapped up on his doorstep. I’ve never eaten the stuff before so have no idea if it tastes like shit or not.


145ml of water

400g of white sugar

Half a teaspoon of salt

250g of peanuts

1 table spoon of butter or margarine

Put the water, sugar and salt in a pan on high heat and mix so it’s all combined.

Use a pan that doesn’t have a non stick coating.

Line an oven tray with baking paper.

Leave the mixture until it it’s starting to bubble then stir every 30 seconds until it’s a golden brown colour. Once it’s into a golden syrup take off the heat, add the butter and stir then add the peanuts straight away. Quickly mix together and put it onto baking paper and spread it.

You have to be quick though as it starts to set straight away.

Dry rubbed slow cooked Texan beef rib with potato salad and a little Mediterranean mixed leaf. Do your worst. 😂

I can assure you the beef looks dry, but it melted away and the nice layer of soft rendered fat inside gave it extra yum…


Allow me to interrupt your quarant-evening with the most perfect bowl of ramen I have created (miso tonkotsu, chashu pork belly, soy marinated egg, spring onions, togarashi seasoning and black and white sesame).


For the broth and pork belly I used a combo of Joshua Weissman and Babish’ recipes on YouTube. I used about 1/2 cup each of dashi, mirin, soy sauce and miso plus a handful of dried shiitake. Reduce it down in a pan until it’s reduced by about half.

Assemble in the bowl: tare, broth, noodles, toppings.

Soup should be about 10% tare, 90% broth.
