POTTED BEEF and POTTED HAM

When I found this ‘Meat to press, pot and roll’ article Mum had kept from the Herald Sun in 1993 it reminded me that buried at the back of one of my kitchen cupboards is an old meat press of hers. She used it make it make various potted and pressed meats, which I confess I thought were the same thing until I read this definition.

Mum mainly made pressed meats, usually tongue or beef. The article has this recipe for Potted Beef and Potted Ham and also one for Pressed Tongue. I never liked Pressed Tongue and I have never wanted to make it and doubt that anyone else does either these days so I’ve left it out, but the Beef and Ham recipes sound good. The article also shows alternatives to using a meat press. I’ve used the bowl, plate and brick method and it works really well, guess that’s why Mum’s press is still at the back of the cupboard.
