Chicken & Coconut Curry Meatballs

 Through my childhood I was always served meat and 3 veg.  And I must admit sausages or chicken schnitzel, mash and vegetables would have to be one of my favourite weeknight meals.  However, sometimes I like to fancy it up and this Chicken & Coconut Curry Meatballs is exactly that.

    Nut allergy here…. What could I substitute for coconut?ReplyCancel

    • Katrina

      I would leave out the coconut all together then Diane although you could add in some finely diced capsicum insteadReplyCancel

    Yum! Love a good rissole! I like putting smoky paprika in my burgers and rissoles – but that might just be a phase! I’ve been adding it to lots of things recently. Poor Mrs Romance.ReplyCancel

    I also like to add finely chopped parsley and rosemary….but then again I’d most likely add in diced capsicum and shredded carrot as well…any way I can sneak in extra vegies!ReplyCancel

  • Jacqui

    I also like to add grated vegies including carrot, zucchini, capsicum… Worcestershire sauce is also good and my secret ingredient is a large dollop of ricotta.ReplyCancel

Super Easy – Garlic Chicken Panko Strips

A friend of mine introduced me to panko breadcrumbs.  The best way to describe they are like a flaky breadcrumb with a crisp and crunchy end result.  I added some panko crumbs to chicken tenderloins, oven baked them and they were so good!  You can find step by step details below. Ooh and…. the kids loved […]

Cheats Gourmet Pepper Steak

I found this recipe on the back of a Gravox Pepper Steak Gravy mix packet many years ago, it’s absolutely delicious and a nice ‘occasional’ accompaniment to a good piece of steak. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo when I cooked it recently, however on my endeavour to see if Gravox had a photo (which they […]

    Its like you read my mind… I was just looking for a slow cooker recipe for silverside / corned beef as I got a slow cooker for my birthday last week!!

    Can I put the beef in for longer than 6-8 hours or will it ruin the meat?

    Thanks
    Kylie
