A Couple of Recipies... My Turn To Cook Dinner!

 It was my turn to cook dinner. Sweet & Sour Pork I decided.
The pork is marinating and the vegetables chopped.

 The end result... It was delicious, there was none left!
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce or tamari
1 egg white
Put all in a bowl add pork pieces and chill 1 hour

Prepare whatever vegetables you like, chopped into
similar size and shaped pieces

Heat a little oil in a pan and cook pork pieces till brown.
Lift out and put aside.

Add a little more oil and stir fry vegetables till tender.
Lift out and put aside.

Sauce - In the same pan put
1 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1 tablespoon soya sauce or tamari
Bring to boil, stir in pork and vegetables
Add 1 can pineapple pieces and juice
Return to boil. Thicken with 2 tablespoons
cornflour mixed with 1/4 cup water.

Serve over rice, couscous, pasta or quinoa.

Then I made dessert... I was given a bag of limes
some of them Key Limes so I made...


Biscuit base... 1 pkt Digestive biscuits, crushed
130gr melted butter
2 tab sugar
Mix together and press into a tin with a removable base.
Can cook 8 minutes at 160deg or just chill.


 All sorts of limes... Even the little orange ones are limes...
Sour as, when I tasted them!

Separate 3 large eggs. Only use yolks - beat till thick & pale
add 1 can condensed milk, beat thoroughly
Slowly add 1/2 - 3/4 cup lime juice, beat till very thick
Soak 10gr gelatine in 3 tablespoons cold water in a
small pan for 10 minutes then heat gently till dissolved.
When cool stir into pie mix, pour over biscuit base. Chill
Scatter grated zest of 3 limes over the top.
Serve with whipped cream.

 Mmmm... Closely resembles a cheesecake but with a lovely
tart flavour. To make gluten free make the
base from crushed nuts... Hazel nuts are delicious.

Bon Appetit...
