Sizzling Beef Fajitas


I love eating Beef Fajitas. Whats not to love - sizzling beef with a good chilli kick!

They are quick and easy to make, and really show case a good quality, cheap cut of beef.

I like to use the griddle pan for this recipe, as it can get extremely hot, and replicates the chargrill of a barbecue.

I like to eat my fajitas with
Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, homemade flatbread topped with Manchego cheese and a little sour cream.

The marinade works just as well with pork and chicken.

Pico de Gallo


Pico De Gallo is the traditional salad accompaniment served with Beef Fajitas.

The sweet and sharp tanginess of the salad works so well with the homemade Guacamole, sour cream and Beef Faijitas. I love to eat these in homemade
flatbread.

Super simple, but extremely tasty.

Homemade Burger and Chips


You cannot beat homemade burgers and chips. After a very heavy weekend in the Lake District for my brother’s stag do, I was not feeling particularly energetic today.

I love these burgers as they are moist and tasty, quick and cheap to make.

Penang Curry Paste


I love Thai / Malaysian Penang Curry.

Penang curry is a milder, drier and more fragrant curry compared to a Red Thai Curry.

I learned how to make this dish whilst in Thailand. Apart from being unwilling to unearth my coriander plant for its roots, all the other ingredients are easy to get hold off locally.

Controversially, I added a tablespoon of Mae Pra Nom chilli paste. This is not authentic at all, but I prefer a little more heat in my curry, and also love the beautiful red hue that the paste injects.

Penang curry paste is traditionally cooked with beef, but works equally well with duck, chicken, seafood.

I originally served this as a
Pork Penang Curry.

If you wish to make the paste in bulk, and use at a later date - then store in a screw cap jar and cover with oil. Will happily sit in the fridge for a week or two.

If you love Thai food, then I strongly recommend you give this a go.
