Weekly Menu Monday 7th September 2015


Bulgogi – We eat this with lots of Korean sides and condiments, you can make every mouthful different! Try it with Mu-pickle (Radish Pickles) and Kongjang (Soy Braised Soybeans).

Beef Chow Mein – Fresh egg noodles make this dish.

Jamie Burgers – This is the only burger we eat now, every element is important so no skimping!

BBQ Pork Fried Rice – Planning ahead with your rice is important, otherwise it turns into a bit of a mush-situation. I always add a few generous glugs of kecap manis because I can’t help myself.

Claypot Chicken Salad – I serve the chicken with rice, pickled carrot, cucumber, mint, coriander and nuoc cham.


Weekly Menu Saturday 23rd August 2015


Dan Dan Noodles – Rolling over from last week because unorganised.

Beef Chow Mein – This is great with fresh egg noodles, grab them from a Chinese Supermarket.

Dreamy Pasta Sauce – I have already made the original recipe and due to popular demand this week I’m trashing it up with beef mince.

Korean Soybean Paste Soup – Another recipe from my Maangchi cookbook, this isn’t the exact same recipe but it’s darn close.

Chicken Satay – The Boyfriend is going to turn into Satay at this rate, and he wouldn’t even be mad.

Weekly Menu Sunday 16th August 2015


Carne Guisada – I might try making my own flour tortillas to serve with this.

Philly Cheesesteak – Ate this last night and schmeared my roll with copious amounts of avocado. Not a typical Cheesesteak filling but avocado will never make dinner less tasty.

Dan Dan Noodles + Chinese Cabbage Stir Fry – I’ve been working my way through this new blog and it is full of great Chinese recipes, check it out!

Honey Chili Beer Chicken + White Bean Gratin – An old favourite, the White Bean Gratin is surprisingly healthy but doesn’t skimp on flay-va.

Crispy Sassage Stir Fry – If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you even doing with your life?

Weekly Menu Saturday 8th August 2015


Chicken Souvlaki – Serving this with greek yoghurt, tomatoes, cucumber and halloumi.

Lu Rou Fan – (I miss-spelled it on the board, oops) I’ve got this bubbling away on the stove as we speak, I can’t even handle the delicious smells filling the house.

Teriyaki Chicken – Getting this down to a fine art, I’m serving it with gai lan for some green.

Philly Cheesesteak – A quick and easy dinner, especially if you can find pre-sliced beef.

Sticky Rice with Chinese Sausage – I am in love with all things Chinese sausage.

Chocolate Mousse Oreo Tart – The Boyfriend and I are taking this to a friend’s house for dessert.

Weekly Menu Saturday 1st August 2015


Beef Ragu – Planning on serving this over al dente pasta with a metric butt-tonne of parmesan.

Bulgogi – Can’t get enough.

Mapo Dofu – One of my favourite Chinese dishes, perfect for cold weather.

Shitty Tacos – Good old packet tacos, drenched in obscene amounts of sour cream.

Bruschetta Pizza – Just when you think bruschetta couldn’t get any more delicious.

Weekly Menu Sunday 26th July 2015


Bulgogi – We ate this last week and it was so good that I had to have it again. I served it with mu-picklekongjang, soybean dipping sauce, home-made kimchi (recipe on its way), rice and lettuce leaves to wrap it all up in.

Crumbed Veal + Mashed Taters – I always wing this one, just mix a whole bunch of delicious things into your bread crumbs before dipping your veal, oregano, parmesan etc.

Beef +Guinness Stew – Another success, it’s basically just an excuse to eat savoury scones. I mix grated cheese and chopped rosemary into my Failsafe Scone recipe.

Korean Pork Stir Fry – I’ll be adding a whole bunch of rice cakes.

Teriyaki Chicken – This is getting requested left, right and centre at my house. It’s especially great with Kewpie mayonnaise on the side.

Weekly Menu Sunday 12th July 2015


Bulgogi – An easy meal that would be great for anyone wanting to get into cooking Korean.

Jamie Burgers – Haven’t had a chance to try anything else from Jamie’s Comfort Food because we just keep wanting to eat these.

Teriyaki Chicken – The sauce for this is off the chain but you will have to take a little trip to an Asian grocery store.

Three Cups Chicken – Request from The Boyf, hopefully this recipe will live up to his high expectations.

Beef + Guinness Stew – I’ll be serving this with some Rosemary Scones adapted from my Failsafe Scones. I’ll leave out the sugar and chuck in a bunch of rosemary and cheese. Does that count as adapting?
