Indoor/ Outdoor (Spiced Pork) Burger

This is a really delicious summer recipe.  These burgers are so easy to make.  The result is a succulent, juicy and slightly spicy burger.  I call it the Indoor/ Outdoor Burger because, technically these can be cooked on a BBQ but so far, as I do live in England where the weather just seems to KNOW when I am planning a BBQ, I have always ended up cooking it on a piece of Stoneware in my oven!!!  When I make these at shows I also make a fabulous Roasted Sweet Potato Salad with Citrus-Curry Dressing.  YUM!!!

 Ingredients

2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander
500g lean minced pork
50g fresh breadcrumbs
1 small piece fresh ginger
2 cloves of garlic,
1 egg
1½ teaspoons garam masala
¼ teaspoon salt

Method

  • Preheat oven to 200/fan 180/Gas 6.
    In Stainless 4-litre Mixing Bowl, place pork, breadcrumbs and egg. Chop coriander using Professional Shears, measure seasoning with Adjustable Measuring Spoons, press garlic & ginger with Garlic Press and combine using Mix n Chop.

    Burgers ready for the oven.

  • Using the large scoop, form about 8-10 mini-burgers and transfer to Medium Round Stone. Place Measure All Cup over meat & squash into burger shape! Bake for 18-22 minutes or until burgers are lightly browned and fully cooked (juices should run clear when pierced with a knife).
All cooked and ready to eat!!

Kit Hemsley’s Slow CookedCashew Chicken

This recipe has been kindly shared by my colleague Kit Hemsley.  She has adapted a recipe originally from TheRecipeCritic.com.  It is a stunningly easy ‘get-ahead’ recipe which is tangy and really, really delicious.  Please don’t be afraid of the chilli, it really isn’t hot (as tested on my spice-phobic friend!!)

Apple Chutney

So here is the first thing I have made from the fabulous produce out of my neighbour’s amazing allotment.

I have adapted this recipe from a BBC Good Food recipe so thanks to them for the inspiration.

Ingredients

  • 1.6 kg cooking apples (peeled and cored weight) chopped
  • 400g light muscovado sugar
  • 500g sultanas
  • 2 medium onions, finely chopped using Food Chopper
  • 1½ tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 500ml cider vinegar

Method

Peel, core and chop all the apples (made really easy with the Pampered Chef Apple Wedger, Vegetable Peeler and Forged Cutlery Knives).

IMG_4772

Add all ingredients to the large Stockpot.

Bring the mixture to the boil over a medium heat.  Simmer uncovered, stirring frequently, for 1-2 hrs, until thick and pulpy.

IMG_4776

Remove from the heat, transfer to sterilised, clean and dry jars and seal.  And enjoy a small sense of smugness at having started making  Christmas presents!!

Note about sterilising jars.  I know that you can put the jars in an oven for a while but I am always a last minute kind of girl!  I therefore always sterilise jars the way Nigella Lawson suggests, which is to quarter fill each jar with water, Microwave on High for 10 mins.  Job done!

Curry in a Hurry

This is my curry for impressing important guests and also the one I use for my best friends as it is so simple.

Chicken tikka masala Stoneware style !!!    

Method

Chop up raw chicken into bite size pieces using Pampered Chef knife and cutting board.

In batter bowl add to the chicken all other ingredients using silicone scrapers, measuring spoons, juicer, food chopper onion and chilli pepper, snip coriander with kitchen shears, use easy read measuring cups for cream, crush garlic with garlic press, microplane ginger.

stir up and pop in stone on 180-200 degrees for35 mins – just make sure curry is bubbling nicely in oven.

Ingredients

5 chicken breast for Deep Dish baker or Square baker – (can double ingredient’s for rectangular baker)

¾ jar tikka massala paste

250g natural yoghurt (greek style is nice, Rachels’s organic greek yoghurt with coconut is gorgeous)

I tbs olive oil

1 red onion – finely chopped

1 garlic clove

1 fresh green chilli

1 inch piece root ginger – finely grated or chopped

4 fluid oz or 125 ml water

4 floz or 125 ml double cream

Bunch fresh coriander – finely chopped

½ lemon

Of course you can adapt the recipe if you are trying to be virtuous by adding more water and less cream – or even adding more yoghurt and no cream – the oil is optional too but I think it makes the curry more authentic.

Serve with rice.  The Pilau Rice (in the microwave!) recipe is the one I always use… love it!
