Mixed meat recipes

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

Mixed meat recipes

Cooking with more than one meat in a dish produces some of my favourite flavour combinations, eg belly of pork casseroled with smoked oysters, steak and kidney, beef ragu containing chicken livers, oriental mixed meat dishes etc.

I don't think this topic has been explored on this site before (could be wrong). Does anyone have any favourites? Or any suggestions for new experiments?

Surf and Turf

Steak and lobster tails for me - steak, preferably rib eye (fillet is too bland for me without a good robust sauce, which detracts from the sweetness of the lobster). Good thread Chazza, looking forward to more ideas to try.

Mixed meat

Paella is my thing - chicken, squid, prawns and mussels all in the same dish, if possible :)

Am also a huge fan of surf 'n turf - lobster tails and an aged Angus steak would have me dribbling all over the table :)

Minced pork adds moisture to beef meatballs, 'cos I think it has more fat. Apparently minced chicken helps a meatball stick together, though it doesn't appeal to me.

Game - I like that mixed too - venison, rabbit, pheasant etc. all complement each other.

Liver and bacon is the poor man's turf 'n turf :)

Mixed meat recipe

You can't go wrong with a chicken and ham pie. Same combination of chicken and bacon in a risotto is fantastic too. A mixed chicken and lamb shish is my idea of bliss after a couple of hours at the pub!

Oh, I like the sound of that

I love octopus (hubby disagrees, doesn't know what he's missing.) I think I'll give this a go Bolas, I just won't tell him what's in it and maybe(?) he won't notice!

Agree Saffy

Chicken and ham pie, especially. Wouldn't turn my nose up at the shish either.

Mixed meat recipes

Does anyone know what's in one of those big donner things you see turning on their spits in shop windows?

I've been daydreaming about a trip to Chinatown for Won Tun soup, which is shredded pork with shredded prawn.

Its lamb, probably minced with herbs, spices and quite a bit of fat.

kebab spits

the ones you want at silly o clock in the morning when only just inebriated.

i believe is roasted lamb - but its reformed from the bits, including lots of fat blasted off the bones, from normal butchery requirements by a machine like a pressure washer, the reformed meat is then mixed with spices -I saw this on a New Zealand food safety programme (bit like grime fighters) about a year or so ago.

It obviously didn't put us off that much as we still have the odd one.

Thank You

Thanks to all for the excellent suggestions, lots of inspiration in there!

It also reminded me of Jennifer Paterson and Clarissa Dickson Wright cooking their Beef Wellington with a whole tub of Gentleman's Relish (minimum 60% anchovies) spread on top of the beef, plus fried mushrooms of course.

Must give that a try.

Thanks again. And feel free to add more recipes if you think of any.
