Cheat’s Pork Belly Slices

Cheat’s Pork Belly Slices

The most popular recipe on my blog is Garlic, Soy & Honey Pork Belly Slices, which in itself is a fairly easy and quick recipe (minus the marinading time), but this is a super quick and lazy alternative using shop-bought stir-fry sauce. I love the hoisin and garlic variety, but any flavour could be used. […]

Garlic, Ginger & Chilli Pork Fillet

Garlic, Ginger & Chilli Pork Fillet

As I mentioned in my last post, I’m currently on a low-carb, low-calorie diet. Pork fillet is a great cut of meat for such a diet as it’s super lean and reasonably priced. It is, however, fairly bland so it’s a good idea to marinade it. Ingredients: Pork fillet – 1lb/450g (cut in half) Garlic […]

Super Quick Syn Free Tomato Soup (60 Calories)

It’s no secret, I love soup. It’s especially good for dieting and is my lunch of choice most days. I’ve posted a couple of soup recipes (see below) that I’ve made from scratch, and usually it’s not that much hassle, but when it’s a hot sunny day the last thing you want to do is […]

If you’re not currently living in Britain, suffering unseasonably cold weather, rain, and gale force winds, or if you are and summer […]

Slightly Sticky Pork Ribs with Chilli, Garlic, Ginger & Honey

Slightly Sticky Pork Ribs with Chilli, Garlic, Ginger & Honey

Ribs are really very cheap and quite a tasty cut of meat. This is a really tasty and easy rib recipe that’s quick to prepare and big on flavour! These would be great cooked on the barbecue, but if the weather is as terrible where you are as it is in England at the minute […]

Rough Puff Pasty (Quick Puff)

Rough Puff Pasty (Quick Puff)

I promised you this recipe last week when I blogged about making Steak en Croute, so of course I had to deliver, especially as I used the second half of this batch to make Beef Wellington, my Sunday post this week. Over the past year I’ve made shortcrust pastry quite a lot, by hand for […]

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 […]
