Pork paprikash


1-1/2 lbs pork tenderloin, cut into 1-inch pieces

2 large onions, diced

2 cloves garlic, chopped

3 vine-ripened tomatoes, finely chopped

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

2 cups red wine

4 cups beef stock

3 tablespoons Hungarian paprika

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1 tablespoon caraway seeds

1 bay leaf

1 teaspoon dried oregano (or, 1 tablespoon fresh marjoram, chopped)

Zest of 1/2 orange

zest of 1/2 lemon


Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Sear the pork, browning on all sides.  Reduce heat to medium, add the onions and sauté until golden. Add the garlic and sauté just until you can smell the garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Add the flour, paprika, cayenne, caraway seeds and tomatoes.

Add red wine and stir to thicken, cooking until liquid is reduced substantially (Mertens says by 80 per cent). Add the beef stock, bay leaf and oregano (if using fresh marjoram, wait to add with the zest) and reduce heat. Simmer for 45-60 minutes. Add the zest.

Season with more salt and pepper to taste, remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Serve over egg noodles. Enjoy.

Delicious tortilla pizzas

An easy cheat’s pizza and a great use of leftover wraps.

Each pizza provides 371 kcal, 18.5g protein, 42g carbohydrate (of which 8g sugars), 14g fat (of which 7.5g saturates), 4g fibre and 1.4g salt.


   spray oil
   4 wholewheat, plain flour or corn tortillas (about 19cm/7½in diameter)
   1 small garlic clove, halved
   400g tin chopped tomatoes (preferably with herbs)
   ¼-½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)
   125g/4½oz pecorino cheese (or a mature cheddar), coarsely grated
   280g jar roasted red and yellow peppers, drained (about 175g/6oz of actual peppers)
   70g/2½oz rocket
   small handful fresh basil leaves (optional)
   2-3 tsp balsamic vinegar (optional)
   2-3 tsp extra virgin olive oil (optional)
   flaked sea salt and freshly ground black pepper


   Turn the oven ideally as high as it will go, making sure two shelves are in place - about 240C/220C Fan/Gas 8. Spray a bit of oil on two large baking trays and put two tortillas on each. Spray a little more on top of the tortillas and then rub the cut side of the garlic all over the tortillas - this gives the pizza extra flavour.

   Divide the chopped tomatoes evenly between the 4 tortillas, spreading them out but leaving a 1.5cm/¾in border. Scatter over the chilli flakes, if using, and divide the cheese and peppers evenly over the top.

   Pop both trays into the oven to bake for about 4-6 minutes (depending on how hot your oven is), or until the cheese has melted and the tortillas are crisp and golden-brown on their edges. Swap the trays around on the shelves half way through for even cooking.

   Remove the tortillas from the oven and slide onto serving plates. Top with the rocket and basil (if using). Season with a little scattering of salt and pepper, then drizzle with balsamic vinegar and some extra virgin olive oil, if you fancy it.

Chocolate Walnut Strudel.

Served warm from the oven, this exquisite dessert features a luscious chocolate and walnut filling, rolled up in golden puff pastry.  Doesn't it sound delicious?  It is!

cost per recipe: $4.82
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 package Pepperidge Farm® Puff Pastry Sheets(1 sheet), thawed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar

How to Make It.

Step 1
Heat the oven to 375°F.  Beat the egg and water in a small bowl with a fork.
Step 2
Place the chocolate, milk and butter into a medium microwaveable bowl.  Microwave on MEDIUM for 30 seconds.  Stir.  Repeat until the mixture is melted and smooth.
Step 3
Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface.  Roll the pastry sheet into a 16x12-inch rectangle.  Spread the chocolate mixture on the pastry to within 1 1/2 inches of the edge.  Sprinkle with the walnuts.  Starting at a short side, roll up like a jelly roll.  Place seam-side down onto a baking sheet. Tuck the ends under to seal.  Brush with the egg mixture.
Step 4
Bake for 35 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown.  Let the strudel cool on the baking sheet on a wire rack for 30 minutes.  Sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar.

Recipe Tips
To decorate the strudel, thaw and roll out another pastry sheet into a 12-inch square.  Cut the pastry into shapes using a cookie cutter.  Press the cut-outs onto the top of the unbaked strudel and brush with the egg mixture.  Bake as directed above.

This morning I made breakfast.
preheat frying pan on stove on medium heat.
grease pan with pat of butter.
crack 2 large eggs into a bowl.
dispose of shell (great for potting soil).
whisk or beat eggs as if they have wronged you seriously.
optional add a little milk or cream to thin out and lighten the mood.
optional add some ground cinnamon or nutmeg to spice things up.
Beat it some more so it knows it learned it's lesson.
Take 4 slices of bread preferably White bread because it will have that glutten flexability to soak the egg mixture and Texas sandwich style because it fits a frying pan and looks better on the plate and gives you more options.
Be sure to soak both sides of the bread so it doesn't know which side is up.
Place soaked slice on greased preheated frying pan.
if top starts to bubble then flip otherwise watch the edges of the bread.
eventually you will flip the bread and there will be nothing you can do about it.  
the otherside takes less time to fry up so becareful not burn your toast.
place on plate.
slice diagonally and place overlapping on plate to give style.
optional of buttering it up or sugar coating in maple syrup.
I had mine dry today.

goes great with a side of stuffed scrambled eggs & bacon and some hashbrown potatoes.  
but that's for another day.
mind you I did those options today for my mother and brothers.
just not myself.
eat and enjoy.
Awesome :clap I call this French Toast :yes don't know why tho' ...

Rahmschnitzel: Austrian Sour Cream Schnitzel

This vegan version of a popular Austrian dish is gluten-free, high in protein, nourishing, and very rich in taste. Typically rahmschnitzel consists of mushrooms and meat in a sour cream-based sauce, but this version substitutes the meat for tempeh and mushrooms and uses soy milk in place of cream. Paired with pasta, this dish is the embodiment of comfort food.


For the Sour Cream Sauce:

   6.3 ounces char-grilled artichokes in oil
   1 large onion
   1 teaspoon sage
   3 teaspoons minced garlic
   1 teaspoon paprika powder
   1 teaspoon lemon juice
   1 vegetable stock cube
   1 teaspoon soy sauce
   1 8-ounce package mushrooms
   2 cups soy milk

For the Meal:

   Freshly ground pepper
   1 8-ounce package mushrooms
   1 8-ounce package tempeh, gluten-free if needed
   Pasta, gluten-free if needed
   Parsley (optional)


1:  Start by chopping up the onion. Squeeze some of the oil out of the char-grilled artichokes and chop them up as well. Put both into a pan and sauté with 1 teaspoon of sage and 2 teaspoons of minced garlic and cook until the onion softens and browns (you don't need to add any oil to the pan. as the artichokes would still be quite oily).
2:  In the meantime, slice the mushrooms and sauté in a bit of oil with 1 teaspoon of minced garlic and the salt. If they are very watery, make sure most of the water evaporates.
3:  Then, add the onion and artichoke into a large blender. Add paprika powder, lemon juice, 1 vegetable stock cube, 1 teaspoon soy sauce, and 2 cups of soy milk. Blend until very smooth.
4:  Pour the mixture into a large pan on medium-low heat. Cut the tempeh into thin schnitzels and add to the pan with the sautéed mushrooms. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper and let simmer for about 15 minutes, so the tempeh can absorb all the flavor.
5:  While this is simmering cook some pasta.
6:  When everything is done, serve on a large plate, garnish with parsley and have some fresh green salad on the side.

Beef Schnitzel With Coleslaw And Corn.


4 x 150g beef schnitzels
½ cup (75g) plain flour
2 free-range eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup (20g) finely grated parmesan cheese
1 cup (70g) breadcrumbs
1 tsp dried oregano or Italian herbs
4 corn cobs, husks removed
Rice bran oil, to shallow fry
200g Woolworths Classic Coleslaw
¼ cup whole egg mayonnaise
Lemon wedges, to serve
Sea salt


1. Place the seasoned flour in a large shallow bowl. Combine the eggs and cheese in another shallow bowl and the herbs and breadcrumbs in separate large shallow bowl. Season the breadcrumbs with salt and pepper, stir to combine. Coat each schnitzel in the flour, followed by the egg wash, then the herbs and breadcrumbs. Set aside on a plate.
2. Heat a char-grill pan over medium-high heat and cook corn for 10 minutes, turning often, until charred. Season.
3. Meanwhile, add enough oil to a large non-stick frying pan to come 1cm up the side and heat over medium heat. Cook the schnitzels for 2 minutes each side or until lightly golden. Transfer to a board lined with kitchen paper. Repeat with remaining schnitzels.
4. In a medium bowl combine coleslaw and mayonnaise. Season. Serve the schnitzels with corn, coleslaw and lemon wedges.
You can use any combination of herbs that you like in the breadcrumb mixture – thyme or sage is delicious.

Braised Lamb Shanks

There's nothing arduous about cooking these shanks yet the results – a sticky, melt-in-the-mouth tenderness and deep, rich flavour – are arrestingly good.

Prep time:
   15 mins
Cook time:
   3 hours

   2 tbsp flour
   salt and ground black pepper
   8 lamb shanks
   3 tbsp oil
   4 whole heads garlic, halved crosswise
   2 tbsp tomato paste
   1 tsp brown sugar
   few drops hot pepper sauce
   1½ cups (375ml) full-bodied red wine
   1 cup port
   2 sprigs rosemary, stalks removed and leaves chopped
   2 cups beef or lamb stock

Preheat oven to 180°C. Place flour in a clean plastic bag with salt and a generous grind of pepper. Add shanks and shake to lightly coat.

Heat oil in a large, heavy-based pan and brown shanks in batches. Transfer to a large baking dish along with garlic halves.

Discard excess fat from pan, add tomato paste and cook a minute or two to let the flavour develop. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a fast simmer. Stir well to lift any pan sediments then pour over meat. Cover and bake for 2 hours (or if serving at once and not reheating, cook for 2½-3 hours or until very tender).

Cool, chill then remove any fat that sits on top. To reheat, bring back to room temperature then cook a further 1 hour at 160°C. Serve shanks with a garlic half and sauce. Accompany with mash and peas and beans.

One-Pot Pan Seared Chicken Breasts with Cherry Tomatoes and White Beans

Cono Sur wine pairing: Serve the chicken over the white beans and tomatoes with a bottle of Pinot Noir close at hand.


Four 6-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Salt and freshly-ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 medium sweet onion, chopped
1 medium red pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 teaspoon red chilli flakes
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken stock
1/4 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
2 cups cherry tomatoes
One 15-ounce can white beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


1. Heat a large high-sided frying pan over medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil to the frying pan, and once hot, add the chicken breasts. Cook until nice and golden brown, about 6 minutes per side. Remove the chicken to a plate and reserve.
2. Reduce the heat to medium, add the onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and red chilli flakes and cook, stirring, until the garlic is soft and fragrant, about 2 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth and wine and stir with a wooden spoon to scrap up any browned bits that may have formed on the bottom of the pan. Add the tomatoes and beans and bring the mixture to a simmer.
3. Return the chicken to the pan and nestle into the tomatoes and beans. Increase the heat to medium-low and simmer until the chicken is fully cooked and the tomato and beans are nice and saucy, about 15 minutes more. Serve the chicken over the white beans and tomatoes and sprinkle with the parsley.
