This year, we are trying to make our British barbecue more exciting by using a wider range of recipes than the usual food that we seem to make each year. We have been experimenting with Simply Beef and Lamb’s Citrus Marinated Steaks recipe to add more flavours to our barbecue. Our BBQ Rump Steaks with Citrus Dip can be used with steaks in a variety of ways. We have also been trying out different potato side dishes.
Here is our Sundried Tomato and Mushroom New Potatoes recipe which is a side dish that works very well as part of a barbecue menu or for party food. It is so easy to make yet is packed full of flavour.
We looked in our fridge and cupboards to see which foods we had to make a side dish for our summer barbecue. We often go to the shop to buy extra foods but as we are trying to cut our food bill lately, we decided to only use foods that we already had in the house. It worked very well and we didn’t spend a penny extra.
After being inspired by the #RaiseTheSteaks campaign that we took part in recently, we made this BBQ Summer Fruits Marinated Steak with Fruity Chutney to make our barbecue more exciting.
A Healthy and Flavourful BBQ
This BBQ Summer Fruits Marinated Steak with Fruity Chutney is so easy to make. The steak takes on the flavour of the summer fruits brilliantly. The fruity chutney is a tasty replacement for the usual ketchup. Above all, this recipe is very healthy.
Great British Beef Week (23rd April until 1st May) is being celebrated and we have been cooking dairy free beef mini roast with mustard butter and seasonal vegetables to mark the occasion. We love good quality, versatile, farm assured British beef and mini roasts are always the perfect size for an easy, yet nutritious meal any day of the week.
This dairy free and egg free pasta sauce recipe has been a favourite of mine since I was about 18 years old. When I first left home, pasta became a huge part of my diet. From making spaghetti bolognaise to my favourite pasta and sauce dishes, I have continued to make many pasta dishes over the years. I was asked to write about this dish as a part of the Belling’s Cooking in Style campaign. You can find more wonderful recipes by searching for the hashtag #GoodLookingCooking on social media.
I’ve always dreamed of having one of the Belling range ovens to enable me to create new dishes. I love that these come in different colours too.
The Problem with Pre-made Pasta Sauces
After finally figuring out that I had some food intolerances, I realised that many of the pasta sauces I was using actually contained some of the foods I was intolerant to. I can’t have cows’ milk (unless it is a2 milk), eggs, bell peppers or chilli peppers (including paprika). It is very difficult to find pasta sauces that don’t contain these foods.
As a result, I have spent some time devising my own pasta sauce recipes that are just as quick and easy as the store bought sauces.
