Lamb Mince and Pecorino (+Others!)

Still working my way through the Franco Manca Pizza book and next up was Lamb Mince and Pecorino. The last lamb mince pizza was awesome so I was looking forward to this!

This recipe is from the Franco Manca Cookbook:
 
The dough recipe is from The Pizza Bible:
 

As usual I made the Master dough with Tiga starter from Pizza Bible. Tiga starter on the Wednesday, dough on the Thursday and Pizza cooked on the Friday.

The Ooni Pro was fired up with Oak splits from Smokey Oak Barbecues.

Whilst the Ooni Pro was heating up I put the lamb mince mixture into the oven to part cook.

There has been a fair time gap since cooking this and writing it up so I can’t remember how long it took to cook, over two hours – maybe three? Must keep up to date with blog posts in future! Cracking bit of meat though, really enjoyed it.

Chuck Eye steaks with chips

This is a new one on me as I haven’t seen chuck eye steaks before. When Butchery at Bowhouse posted them on Instagram I had to try them!

What a cracking steak, full of flavour and a bargain too. Slightly more chew than a rib eye but worth it for the flavour.

Grouse:

It was the glorious 12th, only one thing for it! Grouse!

Nice meal, something a bit different. Good value too.

Venison tagine:

Still working my way through the half venison I got from Butchery at Bowhose, next up was a Venison Tagine

Not sure why but this is the only photo I have from this cook! I do remember it was incredibly tasty yet very simple to prepare and cook, would definitely cook it again.

This recipe is from the Venison Cookbook:
 
That’s it for this blog post, some great cooks and a good week of eating! Until next time.

The books used in these cooks and equipment I recommend can be seen in my Amazon Store:
