Sticky Pork with Asian Slaw

Sticky Pork with Asian Slaw

We eat a lot of Asian food and this Sticky Pork with an Asian Slaw didn't disappoint. It was really quick to prepare and cook and even though I needed to pay full price for the pork steaks because there was nothing in the yellow sticker section, it still came in at under a fiver for all of us.


homemade sushi

Homemade Sushi with delicious Scottish Salmon

We love homemade sushi, not only is it delicious, with a bit of practice it is fairly easy to make. It is also a great way to get the kids involved in the kitchen with the rolling process. I was pleasantly surprised to find a piece of Scottish Salmon in the yellow sticker section of my local supermarket recently. Before deciding on Sushi I browsed the internet for other Salmon recipes. While browsing I stumbled on

The Fishermens Mission

Easy sticky BBQ ribs

Easy sticky BBQ ribs - Perfect midweek meal

The kids love sticky ribs and these didn't disappoint. I was fortunate enough to find two packs in the yellow sticker section of the supermarket for £1.87 each. Originally I planned to do an Asian style meal with them but changed my mind at the last minute. This easy sticky BBQ ribs recipe only took about 5 minutes to prepare and was very easy to cook.


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.

Hawaiian Chicken Wings

Hawaiian Chicken Wings - This is another fabulous dish that would also work on the BBQ. Or could be pre cooked and taken on a picnic or trip to the park. It is really quick and really easy to prepare and make. Huli Huli Chicken wings originate from Hawaii and as it turns out are amazing.

A little bit of pointless knowledge for you. 'Huli' means turn in Hawaiian and is a reference to an either motorised or manual turning of the grill during cooking.

It was great to be able to chuck some stuff in the slow cooker and not have to worry about cooking in the evening. Which has also meant that we have got to enjoy the school holiday to the max.


Chinese Chicken with Hoisin Sauce

Chinese Chicken with Hoisin Sauce - A budget version of Crispy Duck Pancakes. I actually purchased a large chicken for £2.05 in the yellow sticker section. Although if you have some chicken left from a Sunday roast you can use that.

Even with a chicken included in the price this came in at around £4.70, so still under the £5.00 budget.

The timings below don't include the chicken roasting time, so remember to include that in your calculations if you need to roast one.


Easy Sticky and Sweet Pork Ribs

Easy Fall Off The Bone Sticky and Sweet Pork Ribs

The kids had been on at me for a while to have pork ribs again. So tonight's meal was going to be sticky and sweet pork ribs, still on the rack and it didn't disappoint.

Pork ribs, do take a while to cook. However, this recipe takes no time to prepare, leaving you more time to relax while the oven does the work.

I didn't price up this recipe because we were given the pork ribs by a neighbour. I have seen them in the yellow sticker section of the supermarket, but realistically we probably wouldn't have had these if we needed to pay the full price. So tonight's meal was a bit of a treat.
