I boil them first for about 20 mins, drain in a colander and then shake them up in the colander to rough them up a bit. Take a tablespoon of butter and melt with a drizzle of olive oil, coat the potatoes and chuck them on a tray in an oven and preheat to 200°C. Should cook for about 45-60 minutes depending on the size.
This sounds Very Yum @Cultured_Bogan
But do you find it matters which potatoes you use as some are labeled in Woolies as being better for baking and others for mash etc.
Obviously Yuh gonna choose the spuds labeled 'best for baking' when purchasing, but I'm just interested to know though.

The slow cooked butter chicken was no good.

Didn't taste any better than a jar sauce mix.

Not a fan of Indian food...

Did, however.. try this.
And it was a winner.


I feel sorry for you,i would rank Indian food alongside traditional French Italian and German/Austrian as the best food in the world,with most of the other asian foods marginally behind them

Love pizza,I have been fortunate enough to have had a German mum and Polish dad...both gone now,but mum cooked great food....but what I wanted to mention in this thread,I had recently eaten a slow cooked lamb shank by an Italian chef...on a bed of sweet and normal potato mashed together and covered in the sauce from the slow cooker was a meal to die for on a cold miserable winters night...
WOW...about the same amount of yumminess :ROFLMAO: as bbq snags covered in low salt tomato sauce @TrueTiger
Edit...I forgot... plenty of fried onions on a crunchy sour dough bread roll.

Understandably...

I love Malaysian food tho.

Each their own my man.

Don, WT2K you 2 members of the old farts club also,any memories of cod liver oil,yum,Hobbo u that old it dribbles lol
I thought Cod Liver Oil was nice @Merlot
But when my Mum thought I needed a REAL clean out I copped Castor Oil with a bit of honey and lemon juice in it.
If it happened today I reckon my Mum would be up on Child Abuse charges it tasted so horrible 😝 🤑 :sick:.

Thick steak is definitely trickier to cook, but you can get a nice sear on the outside and still keep it juicy and tender inside.

I find letting it warm up to room temperature makes life easier.
G'day @Papacito Do you know anything about the Weber probes you stick in the meat that send a message to your mobile Weber app when the steak is cooked the way you want it rare, med, well done.

Just use washed or unwashed potatoes mate.

Have used the pink skinned ones for roasting as well and they go OK too mate.

If you keep your eye on them as they cook you can't really mess it up.
