Mushroom and Cheese Filled Pork Cutlets in Breadcrumbs

By on 21 Jan , 2015 in Roast | 0 comments

I can imagine few better meals than taking a fresh cut of meat, filling it with all the stuff you love, then baking it in the oven in a breadcrumb coating. When one finally takes these protein bags out of the oven, all of which are thick from the delicious juicy stuff they can hardly contain within, cuts them in half, and sees the slow-flowing, steaming mixture of cheese, spices and mushrooms (or anything you could think of filling into it) seeping out from between the two layers of meat, releasing mouth-watering smells, one cannot withhold the smile of satisfaction that breaks out on his/her face. It is about time I share such a recipe on this blog.

Pork Loin Steaks with Whiskey-Flavoured Mushroom Sauce

By on 12 Jan , 2015 in Steak | 0 comments

It’s been a while since I left behind my London life and with it the endless repetition of 9 to 5 office hours. Even though it’s been almost a year and a half since my leaving, the bottle of single-malt Scotch whiskey I got from my colleagues as a leaving present was still not even nearly empty, in fact roughly half of it still remained. The simple reason behind this is that I don’t really like whiskey as such. I fully appreciate that this bottle of 25 year old Scotch is of excellent quality as revealed by its fantastic smell also, but going further than smelling and actually drinking it is not really my thing any more. However, I have absolutely no problem with adding a mild whiskey flavour to the meat I cook. The rest, I think, is self explanatory.

Japanese dinner in London

If the last burger porn edition from Kiev was special, I am not sure what to call this one as this post is going to be something truly unconventional for our blog. I was on a work-related trip to London last week and, like I always do when I am there, went to my favourite place for dinner one of the nights, a tiny Japanese restaurant on Plender Street, Camden Town called ‘Seto’. Formerly a small but busy restaurant in Soho, it is now a true hidden gem on one of the side streets of Camden High Street. Seto is run by a Japanese couple, honest hard-working people who actually do work there every day, not just running a business. A fairly non-descriptive venue from the outside, and you will notice absolutely nothing fancy even after you entered, however, this is one of the rare places in London where you will find great Japanese food made with care.

Gourmet Burgers With Bacon And Onion Rings

There hasn’t been any updates to the blog for some time now, but there has been a lot of other things going on in the past month, and the Meat n’ Metal team had to wait. It was, and will continue to be quiet an eventful summer for me but in order not to leave this blog completely on its own, I decided to organise a special Meat n’ Metal event where I currently am, in Kiev, featuring my beloved onion rings burger recipe I always wanted to write about.

Horseradish, Cheddar and Bacon Burgers

By on 8 Jun , 2014 in Burger | 0 comments

For our small team, summer time is burger time. Big time. It’s been the first consistent week of the real hot summer weather that we hate so much, and we can only survive this calamity thanks to the small everyday pleasures, like the one a monstrously tall double horseradish and bacon burger can give you on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
