Pepper steak with lettuce, tomato, fetta, avocado, ACV and olive oil. Yum!

1 Nov

Grassfed rump steak from freerangebutcher.com.au veg from the local grocer – quick and scrumptious lunch that Mrs Cavelesbian just loved!

(oh – and grated raw zucchini)

    You’re in Australia. Do you ever go to the meat raffles? My daughter goes up to the workers’ club twice a week for them, and always comes back loaded. Her kitchen bench looks like the photo on your home page.

    I love to come here and feel like “supper’s on”. (That’s what we have here instead of “tea”.)

    Nom, nom, nom. 😛

      Oh Mary I always enter those meat tray raffles and never win! I love the idea of a huge tray filled with juicy cuts and all different types of deliciousness! Where does tour daughter live? Luck must be on her side…

        It’s the old Mooney Mooney workers club that was taken over by Reevesby, a Sydney string of clubs. (Sydney? I figure ..) It’s one of the clubs that is classified such that all receipts must be ploughed back into the community: community projects, membership benefits like most famously the meat raffles.

        Hah! I could send you a jpg of *one* of her weekend meat raffle wins that covers their table because sometime she & her partner win 3 or 4 meat trays. They look just like your meatcombo, but usually only one roast per tray. Same veg display on them though, and many chops, sausages, and rissoles.

        They spend $20 a week at the meat raffle on tickets, and always win at least one tray. You can choose a chicken tray, a beef tray, a lamb tray – whatever hasn’t been claimed yet at the time that your ticket is called.

        It boggles the North American mind!

        If you go there, *don’t* tell anybody that you heard about it on the internet, or she’ll give me total shit! 😛 Mothers learn to be paranoid.

        Without wanting to be a wet blanket, I am a little concerned about the quality of the meat that the trays would offer – grassfed? Freerange? Unfortunately I don’t think so… 😦

    I’m stealing your meatcombo.jpg for my winXP desktop pic. Happy vibes! Something to live for.

    I didn’t realize that there *was* a feedlot industry in Australia – so I’m reading about it now.

    The meat that the raffles get comes from a local butcher in Berowra rather that the mass-market suppliers to Coles, Woolies, & IGA. Not sure if that would make a difference.

    * Toddles off to learn about the meat industry in Australia …. *

      Yeah it’s hard to keep track of! And it’s seriously lacking in transparency, so most of the info comes from either the companies/ industry or the psycho animal liberators who have broken into factory farms and filmed chooks cannibalizing one another… And so forth! and there is definitely a lot of grain feeding going on here…

      Hey, maybe i could do with a little more research myself!
