Quick Steak Strog

Quick Steak Strog This is seriously easy and very yummy. It will take you 5 minutes to chop and about 20 mins to cook. To make enough for two… 2 tbsp olive oil 1 red onion, chopped 2 garlic cloves, minced (I use ready made minced in a jar ‘cos I’m lazy) 1 tsp paprika spice 1 green pepper, diced 200g button mushrooms, quartered 2 tbsp red wine vinegar 200 ml beef stock 225g flank steak, sliced thinly 1/2...

Basic Bolognese Sauce

Basic Bolognese Sauce This is so easy everyone should be able to make this. It’s a crowd pleaser and is also very good for freezing in portions for later use. I always make big batches for this very purpose. You can easily scale the amounts. The quantities used here will feed about 8, or 6 if everyone is hungry and wants seconds – they invariably do. This is the most basic recipe, and is absolutely delicious in its...

Jamie Oliver’s Herb & Lemon Chicken with Sweetcorn Mash

Jamie Oliver’s Herb & Lemon Chicken with Sweetcorn Mash I am an avid iPhone user, and an equally avid app collector. Apps for recipes, with instructions, are becoming very common and almost all of the big names in food have started putting them out. Jamie Oliver is no exception. I cooked this tonight for no other reason than I was in the supermarket, scrolling through recipes, looking for something quick. This came to my attention and it was both quick and very...

British Rail Sandwich

British Rail Sandwich British Rail was famous in the eighties for its appalling food on board trains. They were also famous for making sandwiches look really full by having a thick dose of filling at the edges but leaving the majority of the sandwich bare. Well, it seems I caught the deli counter in Taste doing the same thing. As evidence, here is the Tandoori Panini I bought for lunch:

Nino’s Cozinha – Plastic Portugese

Nino’s Cozinha – Plastic Portugese My wife and I fancied a quick bite out for lunch so we thought we would try one of the restaurants in the QRE tower which is very close to where we live. I picked Nino’s Cozhina for no other reason than I guessed it was Portugese and that sounded just the ticket at the time. As the lift door opens you are immediately thrust into the dining room. There is no entrance way as such. I am sure this is as...

Mediterranean Rice

Mediterranean Rice This is a rice recipe which is absolutely delicious. So good in fact, I was too eager to serve it and forgot to take any photographs until there was only a little left. This was made with chicken but could easily be made with most minced meats, especially lamb. A perfect meal with a feta cheese salad, or as part of a larger spread with Isreali or Lebanese influences. To make four servings you will...

Chopped Chicken Salad

Chopped Chicken Salad This is perfect as either a main dish, served on a bed of crunchy lettuce, or as a side dish on its own. Guaranteed to be a hit. To make enough for 3 to 4 for a main you will need… 4 cooked chicken breasts, chopped into bite size chunks 5 strips of American style or streaky bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled. 2 celery sticks 1 large Fuji Apple, cored and chopped. 1 200g jar (scant cup) mayonnaise (I...
