I have learned so much about food writing this blog, all these new recipes and ingredients have been educational. Which brings us to this week’s recipe. Minced Collops. This is definitely a new one on me.
I was planning on making this recipe, but you know, sometimes life gets in the way. I just couldn’t find the time. Fred and I ate out 4 nights in a row! That’s a new record for us, but when you get busy, you get busy. The fifth night I was so tired I just didn’t want to bother with the kitchen so I pulled out a frozen dinner for two.
Anyway, I had to know where this recipe came from. Wikipedia told me that a collop is a slice of meat. Considering this is minced collops, I guess it’s the silce of meat that you mince. A collop is also a measurement. It’s the amount of land you need for one cow to graze. Isn’t that something? I have to wonder if the two are related. You use a collop to raze a cow then a collop of cow is used for dinner.
