    As you all know im a Butcher by trade and now and again ask a few questions about the meat trade here is one for you to put your opinions to:
    When you go to a pub and have a mixed grill what would you call a good sized mixed grill.
    The biggest one we do
    4 oz Rump Steak
    5 oz Gammon steak
    2x3 oz Lamb chops
    2 x3 oz Pork Steaks
    6oz Cumberland Sausage
    Slice of Black Pudding
    Piece of Lambs Liver
    1 Lambs Kidney

    I wouldn't call that a 'good' sized mixed grill. I'd call it a heart attack waiting to happen:eek:
    I suspect you also forgot a couple of fried eggs on there too. (and the salad garnish)

    As an aside - why don't we eat cows liver in this country? only lamb and pigs liver.

    Ah the good old mixed grill, my ideal would be:-

    1 Ian Perks rump
    1 Mike Lyons shank
    1 Chunky pork loin
    1 Bb Bill Cambletown sausage
    1 Blossom meat prawn
    1 Killer whale
    A nice Dyl Garnish and turn the heat up high :wink:

    This is not a thread to read when thinking about breakfast - am now REALLY hungry, lol

    Purely personally the first list sounds near enough perfect (although am not a great fan of liver or kidney, so would rmemove them) with the addition of a couple of eggs and a pile of toast (beans optional).

    One thing I do like is getting the meat straight from the farmers - I love Farmer's Markets - the prices might be a little higher, but the quality is simply stunning.

    Well from the list I'd lose the liver, black pudding and kidneys, and add a couple of fried eggs and mushrooms. Oh and make the steak bigger.

    I had some ox liver the other week, the bile ducts are that bit bigger and take a bit more chewing than with pig or lambs livers. I don't know about you, but after I'd eaten all that I'd never have room for the salad garnish;).

    Sounds like a day off work to me! :eek: Quite offal!! (Sorry).

    It's not a mixed grill, I know but a trombone playing friend of mine told me about a culinary delight he samples from a pub somewhere "up North", I can't remember where exactly but this is what he raves about and I can see why - a piece of medium cooked steak covered in slices of black pudding, smothered in Wensleydale cheese and grilled!!!!!!!!!!!
    Phwoar! :clap: I can almost taste it, of course, a pint of bitter on the side is

    You could drink yal after that load? sounds great to me Ian...but afterwards would be brandy and a lie down.

    Farmer's Markets are definitely the dog's...we recently stocked the freezer with Aberdeen Angus...not over the top price-wise, but...the quality!!!!...and they leave a decent bit of fat on the steaks....ooooh...I'm to go back to the hotel.


    (A pint to the saddo who recognises the hotel be redeemed at the Whits.)

    Now, correct me if i'm wrong, but on friday we had Burger, beans and chips and yesterday had Curry, onion Bhaji and naan bread.

    it depends how its cooked, what the ingrediants are, if they add anything extra, if a burger is pure meat its pretty healthy, its when they start adding in the extra garbage thats kicks to the unhealthy side, and everything in moderation is good anyway.

    I wonder whats for dinner today :p
