Dumplings are one of my absolute faves. We have an awesome dumpling place here in Christchurch called Potsticker so I wanted to give them a go. I had no idea how easy they were to make, and it is so satisfying. I will definitely be making more of these and popping them in the freezer for an easy dinner night. These pan fried babies are an absolute winner!
This dish is a fun and healthy. Using the lettuce cups as edible bowls is the traditional way to eat this spicy pork dish and frankly I love it. Yes it may get a little messy and sometimes a fork is needed but it is fun and light as it limits how much you put on your plate. It is a great mid week dish as it is super quick to prepare.
This wee gem is perfect salad to take for work lunches or can be used to compliment your BBQ spread. The addition of the jalapeno’s adds another kick along with the chorizo which is just how my house likes it. This salad keeps really well and the flavours just keep intensifying. Enjoy!
Sticky Ginger Braised Pork Belly
This recipe has received raving reviews and has been requested to be a regular fixture at our house. It is sticky, sweet and quite moorish. I served with coconut rice and steamed beans but it could also work as more of a stir-fry with a lot more veges.
Pork & Pear Bake
Pear and blue cheese is a winning match and both flavours work well with pork. This recipe is very easy to prepare and the flavours speak for themselves. Great Autumn recipe to warm the cooling nights.
Spicy Pulled Pork with Apple Slaw
This recipe is an absolute winner and all the prep is up front so great for entertaining. I normally serve this as a main event in either toasted ciabatta buns or soft taco’s. Just layer a little aioli over your choice of bottom and you are ready to build your meal. Serves 6 comfortably for dinner with the possibility of leftovers…. but there never is in our house!
