pangrilled 400 day australian wagyu MBS 3/4

wife away youngest daughter flying off this evening. her boyfriend sending her to airport.

we decided to have 3pax home dinner on sunday 4.12.2016.

i still have 2 pieces of 400 day australian wagyu MBS 3/4 from qbfood in the freezer, so defrosted one piece about 300g.

did my usual pangrilled tagliata. 🙂

very hot pan, a bit of butter, season with sea salt & coarse black pepper, char in pan, move around pan for even heat distribution, flip over & char the other side…finger test to get medium rare (actually just agak-logy for me la..)..then rest meat for 5mins…

& what a beautiful piece of wagyu…flavourful sweet tender…

as i said, this was so much superior to the grass fed ribeye at momor izakaya, but of course NOT apple with apple…that was S$38. my piece would be like S$25, but then it was far far better.

i made the pink sauce with 1/2 bottle prego traditional sauce, 1/2 can whole peeled canned tomatoes, 1/2 bottle (150ml) thickened cream. had 1 whole bulb of garlic cloves in olive oil with chilli padi & basil before adding the sauce. & i added 1 cup of prawn stock & reduced.

cook prawns first then add sotong, make sure both are cooked but not overcooked, then add pasta, off fire & toss.

my was just right, but can add salt to taste as required. add parmesan cheese & basil to garnish. voila!

i thought i gave the prwan noodle a try. ordered S$3 beehoon noodles dry.

3 small prawns, some fish cakes, sliced porl.

but mainly the soup & chilli cannot make it!

soup, thin some taste but not smooth no deep flavours. my own prawn stock just for cooking would beat this…
