Beer batter is an Australian favourite so I thought I'd spice up the traditional recipe a little and cook some battered pineapple pieces. Don't use your last beer when cooking this!! You could also used tinned pineapple pieces but personally I thought some larger chunks would be better.
Variant on a few other rabbit / crock pot recipes I've tried. It makes a hearty one-pot meal for two people. I always like to leave the vegetables nice and chunky. You could try a little less liquid and therefore less flour to thicken, however I found this works well and the additional liquid plays well with the vegetables during cooking.
Nice way to enjoy scallops. The use of flour with curry powder might sound unusual because of the natural thickening effect of the curry, but I find it gives a bit of bulk to the curry without making it too strong.
A slightly modified version of a recipe from Easy International Cooking that is really bursting with flavour. With the chillies leave the seeds if you like some heat, remove the seeds if you want a little less heat or leave them out all together for a mild result. It is great served with crusty bread and also re-heats well. I've specified thigh meat because it's cheaper and works well, but you can use breast or other cuts as well.
This is a lemon herb garlic chicken dish which is made in a slow cooker to contain it's natural flavours. When we served it the meat fell away from the bone. If you wish to increase the celery and carrot you may do so without dramatically change the flavour of the dish. I normally remove the skin off the drumstick, which I recommended with this dish but feel free to leave it on. Everyone enjoyed it in our house hold, hope you will enjoy it.
Moroccan Chicken with lemons and three types of olives. If you like sour/lemon flavours then this dish will be suitable for you. This dish is very easy and preparation time is only 10 mins and 30 mins to marinate. The recipe requires 1 chicken cut into serving pieces but I used 8 chicken pieces (thighs & drumsticks) with skin off. I don't normally have fresh coriander regularly available but I used 1 teaspoon of coriander powdered. It comes from a book called 'The Olive Oil Cookbook' by Marlena Spieler.
We cook this dish when we are very hungry as it is filling. It has one of my many favourite ingredients which is Lemon! I use chicken stock from a carton. The recipe comes from a book called 'Modern Classics' Book 1 by Donna Hay
If you enjoy lemon flavours then you may like this dish. I tried it with chicken breast but I always come back to drumsticks as it adds a lot of flavour into the dish. I normally remove the skin from the drumstick as I watch our families fat intake but feel free to leave it on. It’s hard for me to regularly find coriander so unless I can I just leave it out. Baking time can varies depending the size/thickness of the drumsticks. I normally bake them between 1.5 hours to 1 hour 45 minutes. This recipe comes from a book called 'Meals Without Red Meat' by Simon and Allison Holst.
When growing up, Morrie was our next door neighbour. I remember my Brother loving this recipe, in fact it was about all he would eat as a kid!! Please allow time to boil the sausages and stew the apple!
Leslie lived across the road from us and was a very good friend of Mums. Mum cooked this alot when we were growing up as kids. Make sure you weigh your roast for cooking times. I have quoted cook time for a 1 kilo roast. You may like to increase the paste mixture for larger size roasts.
A friend gave me this recipe years ago. I'm not sure where it orginally came from.
The Australian rissole is generally made from minced meat and pan fried, without a pastry covering, but sometimes with breadcrumbs.
This recipe is suitable to freeze and for OAMC. Thanks to Tish I have added the directions.
Easy lamb chops Italian style.
This recipe is layered. First you will have a layer of potatoes and onions. Next you will have 3 layers of tomatoes and crumbs and 2 layers of chops.
I use a deep casserole dish.
I make a large pot and freeze what we don't use into 2 cup size containers. Great with creamy mashed potatoe and steam vegetable and hubby likes to splash some worstershire sauce on too. In the last 30 minutes you could make some herbed dumplings to go with it. Use a cast iron casserole dish or stoneware or oven proof china don't use clear corningware. Instead of beef stock you can use 2 cups water and 2 teaspoons of beef granules (just check the salt count though) or 2 stock cubes. Do not include overnight marinade time. Left overs also make into a great meat pie, toasted sandwiches or shepherds pie. Can also be made in a crockpot or slow cooker but use 1/2 cup less stock and will take about 12 hours on slow. Please also note beef gravy is called gravy beef or shin beef here in Australia, it is the osso bucco cut without the bone and sliced thick (you just cut it up) and our skirt steak I think is the equivalent of flank steak in USA this cut helps to thicken the gravy which when it gets to the stage of thickening it will turn a glossy colour and loose that watery look. I have scaled this recipe up and down with very good success but need to adjust the cooking times accordingly eg my large cast iron pot will hold 6 kilos of meat but it then takes another 1 1/2 to 2 hours to cook. Olease also note our tablespoon is 20ml against the USA being 15ml, so add 1 teaspoon extra for each tablespoon is using USA measurements.
This is a recipe my daughter Heather came up with, though when she makes it she adds more butter and cheese than what I've stated. When I say spring onion I'm referring to the one without the onion on the end. I think Americans call it scallions and it is also known as green onions. You could try different cheeses.
