Long Description to add
Pot-roasting used to be popular but then fell out of favour. We reckon it's well overdue for a revival, as you don't have to worry about it drying out as you would with a roast and the meat just sits and cooks happily by itself.
When the temperature plummets it's time to tuck into a robust stew filled with flavours of the Mediterranean.
Not for nothing do the French refer to the British as 'les rosbifs' - this superlative roast, with traditional trimmings of Yorkshire pudding and horseradish, sums up the best of our classic dishes.
Make sure you source the best possible beef you can for this recipe - it will make all the difference. What could be more enjoyable for a Sunday lunch gathering?
Nothing beats the anticipation of eating a traditional, slow-cooked stew on a winter's day: sticky sauce, flavourful vegetables and meat so tender it's falling apart, with the added bonus of dumplings!
Teriyaki sauce may sound exotic but it's well worth trying: simply a mixture of soy, mirin, sake, sugar, ginger and garlic, these ingredients are used to marinate the steak, producing a tender, flavourful result.
An unusual, colourful stew that is perfect for entertaining - just add plain rice to serve. Spices, squash, sweetcorn and red pepper provide the Latin American elements, giving the dish masses of visual appeal and great flavour.
My family have a definite weakness for rissoles. We don't eat great quantities of meat, but we do have a joint at the weekends and that means lots of lovely leftover bits to make rissoles the next day.
I've suggested two ways of cooking this delicious, spicy main meal: you can either cook it in the traditional way in a slow oven, or (if you want to cut down on gas or electricity) it can be done on top of the stove by using a little more liquid.
The Americans invented meatballs to go with spaghetti, and there are lots of ground rules, but the main criteria for any meatball is that it should have a kind of melt-in-the-mouth lightness and not be heavy and bouncy. These, I think, are just right
