More cooking for one

19 Jun

There is really one thing to remember if you are cooking as I am suggesting, that is to ensure what you cook can be frozen.

Buying and cooking in bulk saves both time and money but you also need simple recipes. I am now thinking about those singles who think they cannot cook. Here is a simple recipe for you;

Slice 500g meat into bite size pieces. Slice one brown onion +or- 1 clove garlic.

Use large saucepan on high heat, add 20 to 30 ml or 1 oz of oil or butter, when hot add onion and garlic and stir until it starts to soften (about 2 mins). Add meat and brown well, stirring frequently. At this time you may wish to drain off any fat in pan for a leaner dish, it will not affect flavour. Now add 1 jar of pasta sauce. Any sauce will do, any flavour, any brand, something you like. Mix in well, lower the heat so the sauce just bubbles (simmer) and allow to cook for at least one hour. This will allow the meat to cook and the flavour to absorb. If it looks to be drying out, add 1/2 cup water as required. It is now ready to serve over your choice of steamed vegetables.

This is a quick and simple dish that can be added to as you choose to experiment. I like to add things like red wine, dry herbs, even sliced vegetables which makes it like a chow mein.
