    No smoker down at the weekender & it's pouring rain anyway. Hopefully there will be enough rain inland to give the farmers some relief . It won't break the drought but it might bend it enough that they can carry livestock until Autumn.
    I found lamb hearts next to the dog food section in the super market. I have some leftover cooked rice. I figure I will make a rice based stuffing ,red pepper,green onion,bacon & bits.
    I think I will brown them after I stuff them then put them in a casserole dish with chicken stock,soy,ginger,garlic,lime leaf,cilantro & whatever else I have loitering in the pantry that fits the Asian vibe.
    In the oven to roast with the stock half way up the sides for an hour or so.
    I have to use the IPad for photos so bear with me.

    It's all a bit free style,situation normal!
    It's now being held over until tomorrow because neighbours invited me to dinner.
    One heart had a cut in the bottom so that's for the dogs,gave the other 3 a trim & cut the chamber centre out to take stuffing.
    I found a jar of black bean chilli paste in the pantry so I will make this as a spicy hot pot .Sauce will be built of the chicken stock,light soy, lime leaf,cilantro root & then the chilli bean paste.
    I need star anise but I am not driving back to town to get it. I might fluke it in the village.

    I have to press quote to get the ability to post photos?
    So I stuffed rice filling in,then made sauce of kecap manis,garlic,chilli bean paste,chicken stock used the other half of the red onion chopped into bottom of dish. Added a couple of kaffir lime leaves.
    I will put lid on for the first 30 minutes then off for the rest.

  8. God the colors in there are gorgeous and the flavors must also be such!
    Sensational job!
    And, I have a feeling that the vino was really nice?

    This was really something. Hearts were tender not the least bit chewy. 2 was a serve.
    It had some grunt from the chilli bean paste but you got some counterpoint from the lime leaf.
    Mainland Chinese see lamb as a northern regional thing a reminder of the mongols.Outside of China , Malaysia ,Singapore & the like there are plenty of lamb & goat dishes. Not sure this is one of them:biggrin:
    Wine is great. It was a cancelled export order when GFC hit ,I got a deal on it some years back.
