Day 875 – #33 Try 50 new recipes

photoFor Valentine’s Day yesterday Mark & I decided we’d try a new recipe.  It was a team effort.  Mark did all the gacky bits (raw meat, egg wash, breadcrumbs etc) and I did the rest.

This is another recipe from my Hairy Biker’s Meat Feast book.  It’s Pork Schnitzel and it is absolutely delicious.  It was in the “quick meat” section of the book and they’re not kidding.  I put the veg in the steamer and we’d prepped and cooked the pork by the time the veg had finished!  Not bad at all.

As I say it was really tasty and we’ll definitely be doing this one again.


Day 841 – #33 Try 50 new recipes


For Christmas Mark bought me the new Hairy Biker’s cook book “Meat Feasts”.  It’s brilliant.  There’s loads and loads of recipes I want to try out, most of which will fall in line with primal/paleo principles.  So all good.
The first recipe Mark wanted me to make was the Lancashire Sausage Hotpot.  This was (unsurprisingly) made with sausages instead of the usual lamb.  They put black pudding in theirs but as I don’t like it, I just used more sausages.  I used the Morrisons gluten-free herby sausages and they were lovely.  Really tasty.  I didn’t use as much potato as they said either – it was loads!  I think maybe because I used a mandolin to cut them I ended up with hundreds of slices, whereas if I’d cut them by hand they’d have been thicker so I wouldn’t have had so many.  It ended up being 700g instead of 1kg.  So quite a difference.  Anyway, here are the before and after photos:

Can’t wait to try the next one….
