Lincolnshire Stuffed Chine
Lincolnshire Stuffed Chine is a pork dish made in England. The centre of popularity is Boston in Lincolnshire, where it is served with a dash of vinegar on it.
It is made with pork chine (backbone.)
You turn the cut of meat bone-side down, fat and meat side up, and make 5 deep slashes (not through the bone, you need to leave it connected, and not through the sides, just the "middle.")
You then flip it over, and make 5 additional deep slashes in different places (but, again, not all the way through, you want to leave it all as one piece.)
When making the slashes, you are making "pockets" to hold the stuffing.
You then put the cut of meat in brine for 24 hours in the refrigerator, then rinse it.
To make the stuffing, you chop up great quantities of parsley (usually done in a food processor these days.) Fancier versions mix the parsley with other herbs such as lettuce, green onions, leeks, thyme, etc.
You stuff all the slashes with the herb mixture, pressing in as much as the slashes will hold. Then you wrap the joint with a cheesecloth or other cloth, tie it up securely, put it in cold water and bring to a boil and simmer for 4 hours, changing the water at least once.
After this, you remove the joint from the heat, but leave it in the water it simmered in to let stand and cool for 2 to 3 hours.
Then drain, leave the meat in the cloth, and put a weight on it for a few hours.
To serve, you slice it lengthwise, parallel to the fat and meat on top, so that the layers of herbs show.
Slices always tend to fall apart.
Many people say Lincolnshire Stuffed Chine is an acquired taste because it's an overdose of parsley -- boiled at that.

- Chop SueyRemember when we were young and clever, we delighted in telling people in worldly tones that Chop Suey wasn't actually Chinese food, that it was instead invented in San Francisco by a Chinese cook who was asked to throw together a meal out of leftovers after hours? Well, guess what, the joke's on us, and now we have to track down all those dinner party companions over the years and tell them that we were parroting a popular myth without doing any fact checking. Chop Suey comes from the Cantonese tsap seui, which means mixed scraps.

- Cottage PieMinced or chopped beef, mixed or topped with vegetables, then topped with mashed potatoes and baked. Before mincing machines came along in the 1870s, it would have been made with chunks of meat, and before the British grudgingly started eating the potato at the end of the 1700s, it would have been topped with a pastry crust instead of the mashed potato.

In general, it's a tender, boneless beef steak, usually cut from beef tenderloin, and generally about 1/2 inch (1 cm) thick, whether naturally that thick or because it was pounded to reduce the thickness.

In some people's minds it is, at least traditionally, though others are trying to move Northern Irish food associations from this dish sometimes called a heart attack on a plate. It's a large breakfast, almost all of which is fried, that can be served any time of day.
