Recipe for a Rump and Potato Bake How to Make a Real Super Supper
The Origin Of This Meal
It was one of those days when you started out with a planned meal, when out of the blue, or should I actually say ominous grey clouds, along comes this totally unexpected obstacle which causes the entire meal plan to change.
What was planned was a Braai (BBQ), so the nice well matured rump was defroste, could not put that back into the fridge, for another day. Besides the heavens had only just opened up, not that I am complaning, we need the relief of a good presipiation, our annual rainfall figures are still down!
Be that as it may I would have to put on my thinking cap. So I raided the the fridge and came up with leanish pickings, no car with me today, so unable to nip out and get a few odds and ends. Besides I had the potatoes for the salad nearly boiled.
So here is what I came up with.
These are very basic and something that happened quite quickly.
Baby marrows six
six button mushrooms
an onion cut into small cubes
a medium sized carrot julienned
a teaspoon of powdered ginger
salt and pepper to taste
cayenne pepper to taste
some chopped garlic to taste
paprika to taste
For a Light Salad
Salt & Pepper to taste
This Is How It's Done
The meal was a success, the taste sensation terrific and the salad was only a light type of salad, sliced onion cucumber and tomato with a squeeze of lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
This made a pleasant change from the usual, or some would say the traditional, fries (or chips), baked potato, mashed potato.
