Savings at Tesco

My foodie start to the New Year. Just call me Le Rosbif!
A good sized rib roast joint of beef would normally cost me £30 plus. Lovely though it would taste this is way beyond my purse so as the ribs were on offer over the Christmas period at work I kept my eyes open for a bargain and a bargain I got! Due to the half price offer and a further date related reduction and some Tesco money off vouchers I got a fab bit of beef on the bone for five pounds!
I cooked it simply for two and a half hours in an inch of water with a few pieces of star anise. The potatoes were cooked in goose fat. Sublime! Happy New Year!!!!
