pork chops recipe

Pork Chops with a miso mustard sauce and sesame green beans

I am really pleased that the yellow sticker section in my local supermarket has started to get used again and this week I managed to grab some lovely pork chops for £2.71 for 6. So, I kept 4 out for dinner and chucked a couple in the freezer for another day. After seeing a couple of Asian inspired pork recipes over the last month, I adapted them to suit my budget and our tastes. I hope you all enjoy this easy pork chop recipe as much as we have.


Easy Chicken Satay

Easy Chicken Satay with sticky rice and cucumber salad

Sometimes you need something quick and easy for your mid-week meals and this Chicken Satay recipe fits the bill well. Served with sticky rice and a cucumber salad, turns a traditional snack into an evening meal rather nicely.

Being unusually organised, I remembered to get the chicken breast out of the freezer in the morning, allowing them to be thoroughly defrosted by early evening.

It may appear to be a large list of ingredients. However a lot of it you may already have in the cupboard. It came in at just over £5 but did make enough for my lunch the next day.

Chicken Char Siu Recipe

Chicken Char Siu Recipe

I made this Chicken Char Siu for lunch this week, although it can easily be up scaled for a tasty dinner. It is full of flavours and the kids loved it.

I can't stress enough that good food doesn't need to take forever to cook. Most of the meals I cook can be ready super quick. This one is no different, 10-15 minutes to prepare and half an hour to cook.


Easy Apple Sauce

Simple, cheap and a lot better than the stuff you find in jars. I needed something to accompany the belly pork I recently cooked as part of my budget Christmas dinner recipe. So thought I would share it with you guys too.


Sticky Pork Wraps

Sticky Pork Lettuce Wraps

Another quick and easy meal from the BBC Good Food Magazine. This would make a great lunch, or as part of a dinner with other bits perhaps. I had everything for this dish except the lettuce, so really cheap for me. However, all in you shouldn’t be paying much more than £4 for this meal.
