    Default A Rant (with recipe) for the Day!

    I just prepared a favourite rissole recipe of mine for tonight....I don't
    usually prepare for my evening meal so early in the day, but have been
    feeling lazy and weary lately when it comes to the end of the day!......

    I put my new car (that has been outside since purchasing it early last
    October) in to have a Diamond Glaze put over the paintwork, which will help
    protect the paint work and gives it the highest polished gloss I have seen
    on cars, and it only needs washing and not polishing.....A lifetime
    guarantee (wonder how long a life guarantee is for a car).... I also had the
    Leather and vinyl and carpets treated as well with a protective coating.....
    Again, a lifetime guarantee......

    My double garage is full of old furniture and just plain rubbish, together
    with an old 1975 'Mini Clubman' car that needs repairs, and my son insists
    that he wants to keep it and so time in the future restore it again!! .....
    In the meantime my 2 cars sit outside of the garage on the drive with no
    protection from the weather at all....I nearly have a fit everytime that
    'Hail' is predicted!.... Unfortunately, my son is interstate and has no
    immediate plans to return home!...... Meantime, the grass has grown too high
    for me to attempt to mow it, and the backyard is full of unfinished backyard
    work, started and not completed!....

    His cat is driving me mad her grieving for him to return, and follows me
    like a shadow.... I have nearly fallen down the stairs a couple of times
    when I have decended, she will even run in front of me as I ascend as well!

    I also have another car of his, a 1995 'Puegeot' 403 that again needs
    repairing and re-registering, but he wants to sell it, but has put it
    outside of my property on the roadway, and now I have the police onto me to
    move it within 7 days, or else!!

    I absolutely 'hate' being in the house by myself for so long, but he feels
    some duty to stay with his sisters to help them still with their moves onto
    a new acreage property, and neglect his responsibilities here in Sydney!

    Now, these are only a very small amount of my problems at the moment..... I
    have to let a little steam off sometimes!!

    NOW, that recipe.....I will post it here as compensation of listening to my
    rant!!


    500g Minced (Ground) Beef.
    1 Tspn Dried Tarragon Leaves.
    1 Tspn Dried Basil Leaves.
    2 Table Spoon (40Ml) Honey.
    1 Tablespoon (20Ml) Dark Soya Sauce.
    2 Tablespoons (40Ml) Full Cream.
    1 Onion, finely chopped.
    1 Good Sized Clove of Garlic, crushed.
    2 Chicken Stock Cubes, crumbled.
    1/2 Cup Fresh Breadcrumbs.
    1 Large Egg, lightly beaten.

    And Oil for shallow frying.

    Combine all the ingredients together (Except of course, the Oil) in a bowl.

    Shape the mixture into small Rissoles.
    Shallow fry in hot oil until golden brown on both sides and cooked through.

    ***Note.....I usually have them with Mashed Creamed Mashed Potatoes, Carrots
    and a green vegetable, usually Peas!....


    Give them a try, they have been a favourite of mine for many years now!

    Push the Clubman outside and cover with a tarp. Call the Salvos and get them
    to come collect the furniture. Do a dump run and get rid of all the ****.

    Then park *your* cars in *your* garage.



    > ...... Meantime,
    > the grass has grown too high for me to attempt to mow it,



    Pleanty of Lawn Mowing services around the place. Try James' Lawnmowing
    or even Jim's Lawnmowing.


    > and the

    James' and Jims both do garden care.maintenace.

    Push into the yard and cover with a tarp....... and then charge him bloody
    storage fees!!

    That'll make him think twice next time :-)

    We're all scared. You hid in that ditch because you think there's still hope.
    But soldier, the only hope you have is to accept the fact that you're already
    dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you'll be able to function
    as a soldier is supposed to function. Without mercy. Without compassion.
    Without remorse. All war depends on it.




    Without mercy. Without compassion. Without remorse.

    Don't knock it till you try it!!

    I usually just use fresh basil, red onion (used to anyway!!) and grated
    cheese in mine, but I'll be giving this one a whirl sometime soon.

    A 'rissole' is basically a piece of flavoured steak....... and we don't
    (usually) crumb our steak.

    With rissoles, you want that cooked/charring on the outside, it adds to
    the flavour.

    Say what?!?

    A rissole can be made out of *any* meat - or fish - or *no* meat for
    that matter.

    Yes, I roll them in flour before frying them....I though that would be
    obvious, Joseph, to do that...

    Also, as Peter has commented, don't 'knock' them, until you have tried them
    :-)

    One comment though... I sometimes like a little extra Tarragon and Basil
    with them!

    Hi, SF....... Similar coatings would be available in the USA, I would be
    surprised if they weren't!..... Protective coatings for car exteriors and
    interiors are available in the UK and Europe....

    My one that I had my car treated with are the below products... Have a read
    up.. It wasn't cheap though....

    Ever hear of "Steak ranchero"? its a "Tex-Mex dish. With the ground met
    in your recipe it reminds me of

    Hmmmmmm.....The Larusse Gastronomique classifies them (rissoles) as a
    "pastry" a pastry dough of "many kinds" but usually a pull pastry filled
    with highly seasoned meat or meat/veg/sesonings mix, a "forcemeat" which
    is then deep fried. A pastry dough "ravioli" that is deep fried rather
    than boiled?

    What was i thinking of? Croquettes? yes, sorry i was mixing up
    croquettes & rissoles.

    I remember "rissoles" was a rather common culinary reference on the old
    BBC sit com "Are you being served" usually uttered in a disparaging manner.

    With a weary sigh and lifting of the eyebrows "...rissoles."

    I have ran across the term in other places, and it seemed to assign a
    usage that almost implied something incorrectly or badly cooked,
    especially a bungled 'foreign' recipe, not to be confused with
    cromesqui's which can be made out of a pigs ear

    According to the larusse, rissoles are small pastries. Croquettes can
    be made of many vegetables and rice, which can formed into a highly
    seasoned ball of rice thickly bound with a highly seasoned sauce, a
    depression or hole made with a finger and the filled with a piece of
    meat (seafood), the stuffed rice ball is massaged back into a spherical
    shape, rolled in grated parmesan cheese, then egged and bread crumbed
    and deep fried - Croquettes de riz a la maniere anciene.

    Interestingly enough, "La Varenne" croquettes start with a 'crepe' a
    thin French pancake, spread that with a seasoned mushroom pate, rolled
    up, cut into several pieces, egged and bread crumbed and deep fried.

    The recipe above seems more to me like a 'salisbury steak' than what i
    have read about 'rissoles".

    But i could be wrong in that there might be some UK or even more broadly
    European usage of the term "Rissole" that i am not familiar with.
    Perhaps a vernacular usage not found in the more common texts on the
    subject, the best i can find of its etymology is 'little reddish brown
    meat pies" its from old french variants back to church latin, from OF
    ruissole, roussole ult. f. LL russeolus reddish f. L russus red.

    My guess was the Italian for rice, riz, but apparently not. I just
    assumed there would be some connection, at least etymologically, to
    risotto, but from what little i have found it seems not to be the case.

    Sorry! my thoughts got ahead of my typing and in the following statement
    i make it seem like im saying "Steak Ranchero" is made from ground beef.

    It of course is not, it is a beaten, tenderized steak set to braise in a
    tomato based sauce till fork tender.

    > Ever hear of "Steak ranchero"? its a "Tex-Mex dish. With the ground met

    And there i should have finished the sentence with the words "salisbury
    steak."

    Larousse Gastronomique has always been known for navel-gazing,
    concentrating on French food and French definitions. Often enough, it
    gets it wrong when it condescends to comment on "foreign" food.
    Rissoles (variously spelt) are known far and wide.

    As I posted before, other dictionaries tend to define the word
    differently and some contradict themselves. For example, the Oxford
    English Reference Dictionary (published by the OUP, just as the OED is)
    defines rissoles as a meat dish, yet defines felafel as a rissole, too.

    So, here, again, is an attempt at a definition, a unifying one, most of
    it also posted before: A rissole is made of any minced ingredient(s)
    (forcemeat) formed into a ball or patty-like form. It may or may not be
    enclosed in a pastry shell or coated in breadcrumbs or flour. It is
    usually deep-fried or pan-fried.

    So, I would say that "rissole", as used out there in the world, is a
    rather broad term, encompassing such foods as hamburger patties,
    meatballs, croquettes, pasties, etc.
