This is my mother's original recipe which uses beef brisket. It comfortably serves 8 people. Simple ingredients but it is unbelievably delicious.
A family favourite of ours, full of flavour. Serve with boiled rice.
Warm and satisfying Spanish style slow baked casserole with belly pork, chorizo, tomato, paprika and butter beans. Serve this Mediterranean one pot with farmhouse bread for mopping up those delicious juices. Rustic fare at it best.
Roasting lamb shanks before slowly braising them removes much of the fat and gives a wonderful flavour, which perfectly complements the fragrant vegetable mix of lentils, tomatoes, courgettes and figs.
Lean slices of beef are wrapped round a mushroom stuffing to make rolls, which are then braised gently with vegetables. This updated version of a traditional recipe makes an easy and impressive dish to prepare ahead, so is ideal for entertaining.
This one-dish meal is an easy Greek-style roast bursting with the fresh flavours of lemon and herbs.
Inspired by the classic French dish, this version is lighter and less extravagant. It combines chunky sausages, bacon and beans with the traditional garlic and herb crust.
Sausages have seen a revival and are becoming something of a gourmet choice. Enjoy them braised with onions, sweet peppers and lentils.
Slow-cooked meat is the best thing ever; it always comes out so succulent and tender. This dish is so tasty it makes my mouth water just thinking about it! The brining of the meat really helps in making it really tender and moist. It's definitely worth the extra effort.
Something I threw together, and it worked out very well! I wanted to make a spezzatino using sausage, but I didn't have any tomatoes in the cupboard, so I cheated a quick mushroom sauce using a sachet of instant soup and some dried porcini for extra flavour.
