I noticed a special offer in the meat section at Carrefour. It looked like big chunks of beef. I was already thinking about doing a roast meal this week since temperatures are cooling off (after around 40°C for the last two weeks, 34°C feels quite pleasant today). I have not felt like cooking while it’s been that hot, certainly not with the oven.
So I took a closer look and was intrigued to see that this meat claims to be Indian Buffalo Leg.
You know when something seems so cheap, you think there’s probably something funny about it? You know when your instincts suggest that buying suspicious meat in a heatwave might not be the greatest idea? You know when on even closer inspection, even the label maker seems unsure and has put a string of question marks under the name….
…. Reader, I bought it.
And having seared it in hot oil, it’s now on a heap of vegetables and herbs in the slow cooker. Because if you are going to experiment with buffalo (if that is what it is!) I figure you should at least do it the courtesy of cooking it for ten hours or so!
