I’ve been getting my meat from a local butcher recently, Andrew Gordon Butchery and Fine Foods in Aberdeen. For the steak and potato hotpot recipe, I’ve used his Diced Steak (Round Steak) from the Aberdeen Angus cattle that his meat comes from. We really like the rich meaty taste of the Aberdeen Angus, so I knew this was going to be a great meal before I started out.
I didn’t add any fancy herbs, spices or taste altering ingredients. I decided just to go with the flavour of the meat itself, with only some salt and pepper to help the vegetables along. The result was a fabulously rich and healthy warming hotpot that I know I am going to make several variations of in future.
