Just done Nikkiboy's Donner meat (euphemism?)

It smells the same and, wait for it, tastes the same!

Texture is a little more coarse but it's very nice.

Served in a pitta bread with salad, chilli sauce and garlic mayo.

lovely stuff!

They were OK, I thing I will use Gorgonzola or Stilton next time to add a little more flavour.

Enjoy
Made this as a marinade for shrimp tonight. Had all the ingredients on hand except had to buy some malt vinegar. It was good. Looking forward to trying with pork ribs next time :)

OK I've neglected this a little so here's a little teaser ready for the summer:

Nick's BBQ sauce:

This makes enough to coat around a 3kg piece of pulled pork or keep it in the fridge for around a month and coat chicken, sausages etc.
On a BBQ it caramelises and is gorgeous, also good on cooked chicken portions, cook the portions in the oven as normal until just a few minutes away from being done, take them out and coat them in the sauce then pop back in for around 10 minutes.

The sauce is rich, sweet, spicy and sticky.

750g Brown Sugar (I use demerara or light brown but you can use a rich brown if you like but this will be reflected in the flavour)
300ml Tomato Ketchup (Used a base so a cheap brand will be fine)
50ml Red Wine Vinegar or balsamic vinegar (You can use cider vinegar but if using malt reduce to half)
50ml Water
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
2.5 Tablespoons English Mustard
2 Teaspoons Paprika
2 Teaspoons Salt
1.5 Teaspoons Pepper
2 Teaspoons Mixed Spice
3 Dashes Tabasco Sauce
3 Tablespoons Tomato Puree
80g Honey

Get a medium saucepan and add all of the ingredients, put on a low to medium heat and stir occassionally until the sugar has all disolved. Once cool pop into an airtight container and keep in the fridge.

Feel free to adjust ingredients to taste, remember with sauces you can always add but you can never take away so if experimenting start with less then add a little at a time.

If you want a smaller amount just halve the ingredients above

Just made lamb kofta kebabs, delicious and mixed in under five minutes cooked in 12-15 minutes.


454g minced lamb
Half an onion finely chopped and diced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon garlic paste (or 2 cloves crushed)
1 teaspoon salt (less or more adjust to taste)

You can either put everything into a food processor and blend together or throw it all in a bowl and mix well.

Separate the mixture into three equal bits and then each bit into three equal balls.
Slide the ball onto a skewer and then roll into a sausage like shape and repeat until you have nine kebabs.
Cook in the oven on 200c for about 12-15 minutes.
If you are having a bbq then cook for around ten minutes in the oven and five minutes on the bbq.
You can also grill them for six minutes each side.

If you like spice then throw some chili flakes in when you're first mixing them.

You will never buy the processed shite again.

Cock-A-Leekie Soup (for Ginge)

Have made this quite a few times, never disappoints.

You will need:

2kg of chicken pieces, thighs are the best but the mixed (cheap) packs of legs and thighs are perfect

2-3 medium onions

50g Pearl Barley

250ml Chicken Stock

500ml Vegetable stock - important use a good quality stock, I always use Kucharek vegetable seasoning to make stock, It's Polish and is the tastiest stock you will ever use, 2 heaped teaspoons (15g/20g) per 500ml. Tip - this is the bollocks, stick a teaspoon or two of it in gravies and any other stocks you make as it lifts it to another level. You can buy it in Asda/Morrisons may be in the 'world foods' aisle PIC LINK

1kg Leeks cleaned and chopped, fresh leeks are fine but easier to use frozen chopped leeks, cheap as chips to buy

2 Litres of water

2/3 sticks of celery diced up small (optional but does add flavour and texture to any soup)

1 Teaspoon salt

1/2 Teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Bunch of fresh parsley, either type, stalks removed and chopped up

1 to 1/2 Teaspoons (heaped) dried thyme, fresh is better if you have it but the difference is not noticable

That's the ingredients, should cost you around £8 - £10 and you'll get at least ten good size portions.

Method:

In a large pot soften the onions for a few minutes, don't let them caramelise just soften, then add the 2 Litres of water, the chicken pieces (whole) and the pearl barley. Boil it and reduce the heat then let it simmer for around an hour. Remove just the chicken from the pot and leave the chicken to cool for a few minutes then strip off the skin and bones and throw away, the chicken that's left should be around 1 inch strips so cut it if necessary and stick it back into the pot, bring back to the boil and add the rest of the ingredients (chicken stock, veg stock, celery, salt, pepper and herbs) then simmer for around a half hour to 45 minutes until the celery is cooked.

That's it - piece of piss and remember soup is better on day 2 than the day it was cooked so let it cool naturally for several hours and warm it up a portion at a time either on the hob or in the micro.
It will keep for 3-4 days in the fridge.

Freeze what you don't use in a plastic tupperware and take it out the night before you want to use it and stick it in the fridge to defrost.

If you want to mix it up then as you are reheating the soup fry up some bacon lardons (chopped bacon) with some chopped up frozen green beans for a few minutes til they are cooked and pour them on top of the soup to serve.

Once you've cooked this Ginge you'll never buy that Baxter's crap again.

Prep time: 15-20 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour 45 minutes approx.

I'll add a pic from Tapatalk when I'm on my mobile.
