Honey Roasted Carrots & Parsnips

Honey Roasted Carrots & Parsnips

Here’s another recipe from my Christmas menu. It’s another fairly easy one that really delivers on flavour. The honey really compliments the natural sweetness of the vegetables. Make plenty and you can keep them in the fridge for a couple of days or in the freezer for longer. I par-boil these before cooking them, it […]

Slow Cooker Pork Cheek & Mushroom Ragu in the Rain

Slow Cooker Pork Cheek & Mushroom Ragu in the Rain

If you’re a regular reader of my blog you’ll know I’m a big fan or pork cheeks, especially in the slow cooker (Slow Cooker Braised Pork Cheeks) and for pasta sauces (Cheeky Pork Ragu). Slow cooked they are delicious and tender. I had intended to use them to make my usual ragu, but last week […]

Leftovers Lamb Hot Pot

Leftovers Lamb Hot Pot

A few weeks ago I posted my Slow Cooker Minted Lamb & Vegetables. It was delicious, but because there were just the two of us there were leftovers – meat, vegetables and the tasty gravy, but not quite enough for a full meal. I didn’t fancy Leftovers Shepherd’s Pie so I fell back on my […]

Roasted Boneless Rib of Beef

Roasted Boneless Rib of Beef

Rib of beef is probably the tastiest and most tender roasting cut. I love it, and it’s not just for a crowd, I often get a joint a couple of inches thick, about 2lbs/1kg in weight, which is the perfect size for dinner for two, with a bit left over for the next day’s lunch. […]

Healthier Ragu (Spaghetti Bolognese)

Healthier Ragu (Spaghetti Bolognese)

A few weeks ago I blogged about my new Multi-Food Grinder (Mincer) for my Kenwood Titanium Chef. I loved it, it was super easy to use and the minced beef made the tastiest, and healthiest Mince Stew & Dumplings I’d ever cooked. Since I’ve also used it to mince pork and beef for a healthy […]

Barbecue Beef Quesadillas (Using Leftovers)

Barbecue Beef Quesadillas (Using Leftovers)

I few weeks ago I made a batch of Slow Cooker Braised Beef Steaks in Barbecue Sauce. I’d frozen the extra, and to do something a bit different with the last portion, and to stretch it out a bit I decided to make Barbecue Beef Quesadillas. One small foil container easily served the two of […]

Leftover Pot Roast Beef Top Crust Pie & Making Shortcrust Pastry in My Kenwood Chef

Leftover Pot Roast Beef Top Crust Pie & Making Shortcrust Pastry in My Kenwood Chef

Everyone likes a good homemade pie, especially when you don’t have to put much effort into the making! My favourite way of achieving this is by using leftovers from stews for the filling, the meat is already tender and the gravy full of flavour (see my Leftovers Steak & Mushroom Pie). A few weeks ago […]
