In cartoons, they always have dinner with a brown meat, some green and some creamy white. Sometimes there’s yellow or orange, but the 3 main colours on cartoon character’s dinner plate are brown, green and cream. This is what I call a cartoon dinner.
Instead of mash potatoes this time, I boiled kumara (sweet potato) and then gave them a good stir and finished them off in a hot oven. The trick is to get the kumara roughened up so that the rough bits crisp up nicely in the oven.
I marinated a couple of slabs of steak in Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce. Then fried with slices of onion. As the steak was resting, I added red wine to the pan with a little flour and made a red wine and onion sauce. Brocolli made up the green component.
And there you have it. A dinner fit for a cartoon character.
