Yes, another Beef Curry Recipe!

I recently came across a beef curry recipe in one of Coles’ recipe magazine and being in a family of curry lovers, I decided to give one of the recipes inside the magazine a try.  I had to make do with the ingredients I had in my fridge and pantry and it turned out really …

Arroz a la Cubana

Still on a high after last night’s school awards night where my daughter received two Academic Awards.  Can’t be prouder and more thankful.  Next to prepare for is her Piano Concert this Saturday — guess I will be a nervous wreck again. This recipe I am posting today is actually a Spanish Dish (obviously from …

Korean Style Beef Ribs

Yesterday I was talking to an Indonesian mum while waiting for my daughter and she was surprised to learn that I cook dinner every night (except Friday — because that’s our takeaway dinner night).  She says she can’t do it because she is not a good cook. Well, you don’t need to be a good …

Beef Sausage Rolls

It has been a very busy past 2 weeks for me hence I wasn’t able to write at all. Wow, last night I saw in the news Miley Cyrus’ VMA performance.  It was a shocker, to say the least.  And I felt a twinge of sadness for her.  My family used to watch Hannah Montana …

Ox Tongue (Lengua) with Mushroom Sauce

Whenever we get the chance, our family goes to either Darra or Inala, both suburbs of which are known for Asian shops and delis.  On the last occasion that we were in Inala, we were in a meat shop recommended by our delightful couple friends Pinky and Keith and we decided we haven’t had ox tongue …

Beef and Coconut Curry

Minced Beef with Whatever!

I had to put “whatever” because in this recipe you can actually put whatever vegetable you have. Ever been stuck with what to cook for dinner and are in the mood for something simple and easy to make? Well, here is one, that my husband gave me an idea for.  It’s got simple ingredients and …

Beef Tagine with Prune and Orange

OK this recipe is not one of those 15 minute quick ones that you can whip up when everyone’s tummy is already rumbling.  It is nice to cook this on a leisurely Sunday lunch perhaps, and enjoy with your family. You can use any beef cut but the recipe uses chuck steak, which is not …

Beef with Bitter Gourd (Ampalaya or Bitter Melon)

This was originally what we were supposed to have for dinner but since my daughter wouldn’t eat this vegetable, I had to cook Bistek as well!  Ironically though, she was able to cook this with my supervision (she’s 10 and I am trying to teach her how to cook) and enjoyed doing so.  But nope, …

Bistek!

I don’t know why they call this recipe Bistek.  Could it be a Filipino slang for “beef steak”?  Maybe.  But whatever the reason they call it this way, I don’t really care.  It’s one of my family’s favourites and most of the time you find this in a family get together served with plain rice.  …
