Medieval Style Pan-Fried Steaks

I don’t usually eat beef or steaks because they taste too gamey for me. The rare occasions when I do is when we eat shabu shabu or when we go to the grills to cook the expensive slices of steak. Hahaha yes, I only eat the expensive cuts of beef, but really, that’s because these cuts are not as gamey in taste – the kind that melts in your mouth, literally. I am otherwise a heartlander at heart.

Raspberry In Sour Cream Delight

This recipe of  sour cream is very refreshing, with a nice raspberry sauce to top it up. It looks quite similar to one of my very first dessert attempt – the original panna cotta with pomegranate and white wine sauce – but is a much creamier variant whereas the panna cotta is of a jelly texture with a very strong vanilla flavour which is absent in this one. The topping for this sour cream is also much thicker, reducing a raspberry syrup that goes oh so well with the sour cream. The panna cotta sauce was lighter, using pomegranate juice to simmer with a touch of wine or muscato to add on to its flavour.
