BBQ Rump Steaks with Citrus Dip #RaiseTheSteaks

*Advertorial

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.

What to Grow: Fruit and Vegetables in the UK

*Advertorial/Guest Post

For the vast majority of the UK the thought to grow your own vegetables seems a formidable task that is bound to take up a large amount of time as well as energy. The long hours spent in your garden begin to wear thin with originality which means that many people give up. However, with the help of Suttons and Dobbies, who’re both premium seeds retailers, we can provide a list of the best fruit and veg to grow in your garden.

Spring Onions and Radishes

Both of these vegetables are able to be grown in a pot or in the garden, whichever you prefer! They’re both perfect for a fresh, tasty salad. The spring onion supplies a sweet yet sharp crunch and the radish adds a peppery taste to the spread. For the best results in growing your spring onions and radishes, wait until the end of Spring when there’s plenty of sunlight before planting your seeds.

Potatoes

Potatoes are great for growing in spring, they’re the foremost of many dishes Continue reading What to Grow: Fruit and Vegetables in the UK

We were recently introduced to Korean inspired cooking with beef and lamb.  Korean cooking is a very popular trend at the moment and Simply Beef and Lamb’s Korean recipes are a great way to get experimenting with different recipes in this trend.  It is Korean New Year on 28th January so we thought we’d try some of these recipes out.

Red Tractor beef and lamb are meats that we buy regularly.  We always look out for the Red Tractor logo on meat packs to show that it is farm assured quality meat and that it has been responsibly produced by people dedicated to providing great food.

Easy mid-week meals: beef mini raosts

We have been trying out a beef mini roast with one of the many delicious recipes from Simply Beef and Lamb.  Many member of my family are farmers, which means that we have always had a traditional Sunday dinner with a roast, potatoes, vegetables, Yorkshire puddings and gravy.  As a child, I remember the huge meat joints that were presented to us, as we all sat round the table.  My Mum knew how to cook this meal perfectly.

Quick and Easy Mid-Week Meals

Nowadays, we seem to have less and less time to prepare a big meal like this.  I was very pleased to discover the lamb and beef mini roasts that are smaller than the usual joints of meat that we used have on a Sunday.  Our lives have been very hectic lately so the usual Sunday dinner has been replaced by much faster to prepare meals.  We have missed our Sunday roasts though.

These mini roasts are great for us as I can cook these during the week so that we can still have our roast dinner but just at a different time. They are perfect for us because the mini roasts are just the right size to feed S, H and me.  I think they would be great to share for two people too. Mini roasts are tasty, versatile plus they are quick and easy to prepare.   Continue reading Beef Mini Roast with Simply Beef and Lamb

Delicious Dinosaur Dinner

As part of the Summer 2016 Cooking with Kids with 3 Princesses and 1 Dude, we have made a Delicious Dinosaur Dinner.  This is a recipe that children can make with very little adult support.  All recipes are dairy free but you can substitute the soya products with dairy ones, if you wish.  Both children really enjoy anything with a dinosaur theme so they were very excited about having a special dinosaur dinner.
