Sweet & Sour Pork Spare Ribs with Cucumber & Mint Salsa

Sweet & Sour Pork Spare Ribs with Cucumber & Mint Salsa

I reckon these babies, Pork Spare Ribs,  are the unsung hero of the meat department.  Luckily the restaurants don’t seem to have cottoned on so they are still well within budget (unlike pork belly and lamb shanks) and are really easy to cook with.  I’m...
Sticky Pork Meatballs with Glass Noodle Salad

Sticky Pork Meatballs with Glass Noodle Salad

This was a triumphant little dish that I came up with, using pretty much what I had in the fridge. Not having kids in the house at the moment means that I need to get a tad more creative, otherwise I will be throwing out a whole heap of fresh food.  This was...
Seared Salmon with Ginger Rice & Peanut Lime Leaf Dressing

Seared Salmon with Ginger Rice & Peanut Lime Leaf Dressing

I knew exactly how I wanted this dish to taste.  Fresh and light but with a dressing that packed a punch.  A punch it did.  Gorgeous pan seared salmon on fragrant rice with a dressing that took just minutes to make this dish was so easy and had every element that...
Quick Beef Pho

Quick Beef Pho

Since I started this website I have had quite a few requests to produce my version of this aromatic Vietnamese beef soup.  What the hell was I waiting for!  Tender beef strips ‘cooked’ in a gorgeously scented Asian broth and topped with crunchy aromatic...
Thai Basil, Beef & Cashew Stir Fry

Thai Basil, Beef & Cashew Stir Fry

Gosh I love a good stir fry and the simpler the better.  There is absolutely no need to overload them with content,  in my opinion less is more.  The peppery,  aniseed flavour of Thai Basil was was the perfect  addition to tender beef fillet, lightly marinated in fish...
Soy Chilli Chicken with Cucumber Salad

Soy Chilli Chicken with Cucumber Salad

I will admit when I posted a photo of this on Instagram as it was cooking, I entitled it “Sticky” Soy & Chilli Chicken.  Didn’t quite go as planned but hey!  I’m only human.  The result was not that sticky but I can tell you it still tasted...
Asian Style Bolognese with Rice Noodles

Asian Style Bolognese with Rice Noodles

This Asian version of an Italian classic delivered on every level.  Easy to cook, budget friendly and so, so tasty.  I think it will become as much of a staple in our house as the Italian version.  You must have also noticed by now that I love to dress up my dishes...
Crispy Chinese Lemon & Ginger Chicken

Crispy Chinese Lemon & Ginger Chicken

Well, I have to say my least favourite Chinese dishes are the ones caked in batter and drowning in sickly, gluey, sweet sauces even though we HAVE to order them (under extreme duress and to avoid tantrums in the local restaurant!) because the kids insist.  This...
Slow Cooked Sticky Asian Lamb

Slow Cooked Sticky Asian Lamb

Cooked for 6 hours in the slow cooker this aromatic, melt-in-your-mouth, gooey, moist, extra large platter of pure Sticky Asian Lamb had us all dribbling.  A really easy, simple dish that you can whack on in the morning yet look like you have been slaving for...
