Diakon Radish and Beef Soup


The centre piece of tonight's meal was the Daikon Radish and Beef Soup. Daikon radish was peeled and cut into large pieces. It together with skirt steak and a couple of pork bones were combined with water and red dates and boiled for 3 hours. This radish smells when cooking so it is best to cook outside if at all possible. Garnish of green coriander leaves were added.

The next dish was pumpkin. Pumpkin is rarely anyone's favourite but add a little ginger and it improves. The pumpkin was boiled with a little ginger until it was al dente and then some ginger strips and shallot strips added as a final touch.

We had some of Jonte's favourite meat balls. This version had ground mutton, mixed with cornstarch and a little soy sauce. This was fried and then glazed with a small amount of sugar and soy sauce. The dish was garnished with shallots.

The final dish was a lightly stir fried mixture of fresh vegies - cabbage, green capiscum, red chillis, a little garlic. This is pretty hard to beat.
