Beef with ABBA



I had to try this ridiculously named dish. It’s essentially a Sri Lankan variation of mustard. Try it as an unusual marinade for beef like I did, and don’t forget, when you serve the meat, play ‘The Winner Takes It All’ for a magnificent homosexual flourish.


1/2 cup black mustard seeds
white vinegar
1 clove garlic
1 tablespoon fresh ginger (finely chopped)

Steaks of your choice for the BBQ.

Put mustard seeds into a ceramic bowl and pour over enough vinegar to cover. Cover, and let it stand overnight.
The following day, in a food processor, or with a hand blender, blend the mustard along with the garlic and ginger. Add salt to taste.
Take 1/2 tablespoon mustard per steak and mix with 1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil per steak. Smother the mustard over each steak and leave for at least an hour before cooking on the BBQ or under a hot grill.

The mustard isn’t just a marinade. Use it wherever you would eat French mustard, as a condiment or spread on sandwiches etc.
