Doing pulled beef – or, some would say, I’m not… It’s a pre-cooked thing that needs half an hour in the oven, a bit of pulling and a spicy sauce mix-up. But sometimes, Sundays are like that – this one’s rainy and there’s a bit about a couple of late nights leading up to it. And some laid back conversations and a fair amout of wine. So … lazy.
With some quiet and lazy music to go with it.

At least, the sides involved a bit of cooking. Corn on the cob and crispy sliced roasted potatoes.

- Notre Dame de Pigalle, Madeleine Peyroux
Scrub a handful of potatoes, slice them evenly – I tend to go for a little thinner – and drop them on a pre-heated pan with a couple of dollops of a good, neutral oil. Turn and mix them often, unstick them from each other, try to get them fried on both sides all of them. Along the way salt them and give them a couple of pinches of thyme.

- Sinne Eeg, Time To Go
The corn is easy – do boiling water in a big pot or pan, add a pinch of salt. Husk the corn, pull off the silky threads and drop them into the water to boil for 5 minutes – turn them over once or twice.
Finish the meat as per the instructions on the package. Serve. In this case with a Skovlyst IPA.
(And no, I did not actually listen to Kinks singing about “Lazing on a sunny afternoon”. For one thing, it wasn’t sunny at all…)
Whoa! Just a PS that is actually rather remarkable:
