One of the nice things about Aldi is also one of the annoying things about Aldi.
Each week they have new stuff, alas they only get limited stock in for that week and once it is sold they don’t get any more stock in.
This means that you can find something you really like, but you generally won’t be able to buy it again.
I recently managed to make some tasty raspberry and white chocolate cookies using a pack of raspberry and white chocolate from Aldi. This was one of their one week stock, as a result I am not able to replace the pack I finished.
A couple of weeks ago they had venison steaks for sale, I bought a pack and cooked them for dinner and they were some of the best venison steaks I have ever had. I cooked them in a frying pan in butter with garlic and herbs.
The end result was tasty, delicious and really tender meat. To go with it I made a sauce with pancetta, mushrooms and port. I really enjoyed and cooking the venison steaks.
However I wasn’t surprised when I went back to Aldi they no longer had any and weren’t selling it any more.
This week though they were selling venison fillet. I bought a pack and cooked it in a similar way. It was very nice, but was not as good as the steaks.
Next week, well there could be anything there…
