This is fast becoming my favorite recipe as it is so quick, easy and tasty. Back to pork mince today (my favorite) with extra chilli and oyster sauce for strong flavors. Simply outstanding!!
OMG, I just discovered Sweet Chilli Butter broccoli from reading your recipe ...want to try both!!
Great outcome. 8 full ice cubes from 5 bulbs. I made the prep easier by using a garlic mincer, which also really bought out the juices. I think the neighbors can smell it every time I open my shed freezer. Cant wait to use the in some soups and other meal recipes.
Very happy with the outcome, with 8 very full ice cubes worth from 5 bulbs. I used a garlic crusher and found this made the prep easier - no need to peel each clove. Cant wait to try this in a recipe.
What a magnificent idea. I love garlic and use it prodigiously in most recipes. I cant wait to do this and try it in recipes.....
Hi Paulene, if i swapped the semi dried tomatoes for a tin of diced tomatoes, would i terminally effect texture or flavour?
My first ever fudge and it turned out great!! Way to sweet for me to eat much, and my family loved it!! I'm now hooked and will make it for pressies in the coming year.
It lived up to its name. So quick and so easy. And best of all, very tasty!! 1.5 hours on low. I will definitely do this again!!
Thank you for your recipe Nardia. It inspired me to try them and I did go a more traditional lasagne style (ie sheets instead of tortilla, and a very tomatoey mince mix). 5 people in the house loved them and I will definitely do this again.
This is a very easy recipe that was absolutely delicious. A definite 'doing that one again'. I was entirely faithful to the recipe (normally I like to add things and experiment) except adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I really enjoyed the taste, but would love any tips on boosting the peanut effect as I love strong flavors (and in no way is that a knock on this recipe). Another 'winner winner Paulene's dinner' (cos I couldn't think of an appropriate word to rhyme with lunch).
I really really liked this. I've been very basic with my sides (rice or potatoes) and suddenly cant eat too much potato, so have been searching for some alternatives. Here is a great one ... easy, tasty, cheesy, cheap, filling. I can see myself doing this many times.
Hi Felicity. I would say yes to equal amounts of sugar as a starting point. It will come down to personal taste on whether you want more or less.
Brilliant. I used thighs bacon pieces and a chunky tomato And herb Lego's sauce. Everyone loved it. Next time adding garlic. This will bye a regular
Thankyou very much for this recipe Felicity. I experimented and I love it. Such a brilliant sauce base and I added some chilli and extra tomato. I wont need to buy bbq sauce from a shop again, and this recipe is oh so easy, and also very easy to play with to suit your tastes. I doubled up the tomato and threw in a few chillis. If anyone can teach me how to preserve and store for long life I'd appreciate it! I'd like to make various batches of this sauce!!
So I have tried this for the first time and am reasonably happy with the outcome. For my tastes, it just needs something more so I will do it again and experiment, starting with different olive oils and feta varieties. I also havent tried it on a dorito yet, which is how we have the store bought capsicum and feta dips. Thanks Christy Roth as it inspired me to use a component (mixing jar?) that came with my stick blitzer, getting it out of the box for the first time after many months.
My youngest son, Mr Fussy, and I liked this recipe. It had a really nice flavour to it but it wasnt quite what I was expecting or hoping for. I will definitely try it again, and next time I will wind back on the cream, wind up the worcestshire sauce, wind up the garlic more than I already had, and introduce some rich gravy mix towards the last hour for thickening and flavour more to my hopes. And I will still add the mushrooms and the strips of short cut bacon which added to what I cooked tonight.
This recipe really is magnificent. Personally in my top 4 finds on this site. So easy and so tasty!!! And this time I got organized and allowed some sauce thickening time at the end. That worked really well with a bit of cornflour. Yesterday I had to use boneless skinless chicken thighs as I had these leftover. They weren't the biggest and I wish I'd dropped cooking time to 4 hours. They were still lovely...there are never leftovers when I do this and I'm yet to have the patience to take a photo...I just want to eat them asap!!
The kind of recipe I'd give 10 stars if I could!
Tried these again in a honey soy garlic marinade for the first time. Wow. Really nice. I finished them in a hot oven for 15 mins and this helped with shape and crispness. Next time I will turn them in the oven and do a further 15 minutes. While the dim sims were in the oven I left the sc lid off and flicked to high which made the sauce nice and thick sauce to pour over the dim sims.
I tried this last night for the first time. I liked the outcome but felt it was missing something..it was - I forgot the fish sauce and that is definitely needed. Will definitely try this again.
Quite a nice recipe. I used 1.3 kg of steak, upped the curry powder and added 5 chillis and a tin of coconut milk on top of the cream. I only used a tiny bit of sugar as I love the curry flavour and was not looking for sweetness. I would certainly do this again and will continue to tinker/experiment to get it closer to my personal tastes.
I enjoyed these with sweet chilli sauce. I deliberately included extra sauce, shortcut bacon cut into strips and some homegrown spring onions. Still a super easy prep. Looking forward to trying them on fried rice and also with a honey soy garlic marinade as the sauce base. These would be so easy to do in bulk as snacks for parties
Magnificent and wanted to do it again almost immediately!! A very easy prep. A very easy cook and baste. An extremely delicious result. So good all my family wanted more (including the fussiest teenager in the world). Without doubt I'm doing this again soon. Thanks Paulene.
My leaning tip for next time - be prepared to thicken the sauce at the end, before serving. I couldnt wait any longer and just went for it. Even in the leftovers.
An absolute winner! Doubled the recipe and served on fried rice. Perfect Father's Day lunch and four meals for leftovers. Added 3 chopped up chilli's and seeds and gave it the minor hint of heat I was looking for to complement the magnificent flavour
An interesting outcome. One in the house absolutely loved this, whilst I was a little non-plussed - nice enough but far from wow for me. I have never been into creamy based dishes (eg never have pasta carbonara!) so I think my personal likes and dislikes definitely influenced my thoughts on this recipe outcome. On the definite plus side - this was very simple to make (using thighs instead of drums) and the recipe, like any recipe, lends itself to experimenting.....
Thanks Jayne. I really enjoyed this. I find I needed an extra hours cooking time on high,. Which is probably just my sc. I stuck to the recipe. I I'll do this again, double the recipe and also add garlic.
This worked fantastically for me and I can't wait to make it into pies today. About 3/4 way into booking I addedsome extra gravy powder to soak up juices. I have also added diced bacon. Definitely don't this again for pie fillings
I found the flavour of this meal to be great. I us.ed 6 chilli's with seeds cos I like it hot. the dish needed work at the end to debone the drumsticks and seriously thicken with cornflour. I didn't have it for tea as planned but it will be great in pies. Next time I will use boneless thighs and be prepared for thickening
Hmm this was so easy and very tasty. I did not add to the recipe. I tried it plain - yum, with butter, even yummier and a used a buttered piece to mop up the juices of a leftover nannys braised steak i'd reheated for lunch. This really is a winner. I can see how it could be added to for a savoury side to a main meal (ie per the suggestions in the recipe) . I will also try some later/tomorrow with jam or honey, for the sweet aspect. It will rock. Being lazy, I used oil spray instead of baking paper...this produced a very crusty bottom and edge (which I like) but when I do this again i will use baking paper to see the difference in texture. Overall, I recommend you give this a go. I used a 3.5. Thanks Sherrie Sutcliffe
I tried this for the first time and I give it a tick and recommend it. I used kaffir lime leaves instead of the recipe leaves as I grow them and love them. I wound right back on the sugar due to diabetes. I will definitely do this again and start tinkering to suit my personal preferences. For me it needs chilli for kick. Michelle Roylance's post above re laksa, noodles etc really has me planning the next version of this soon.
Thank you for this recipe. This is easy to make, very tasty and was very filling as a main meal. Also it lends itself to tinkering to your own personal preferences. I doubled the recipe because I like freezing lots of left overs. I added minced garlic when browning onions and next time i will add chilli cos I like a kick (I would add chilli to ice cream!!). Overall I can highly recommend this as an easy to prepare, tasty and healthy meal choice. It would also sit well as a side to a main meal.
Brilliant. The best fried rice I have ever made. Cant wait to try it again and start experimenting a little bit. Brilliant side dish. With some added proteins you could have this as a meal in itself!!
I made this for the first time and based on earlier feedback I was expecting a strong flavour. It did not disappoint!! Really easy to make and really tasty meal. I will definitely make this again and it lends it self to doubling or tripling the recipe if you have a large crew to feed. I served it with the site's fried rice recipe. First time for both recipes and both were real winners!!
Really enjoyed this. I had to use splenda instead of sugar but it was fine. Cant have icing but had a dash of ice cream with it as soon as it came out. Heaven for someone who cant eat much cake
This was excellent. So tasty, with an onion instead of leek, plus 2 potatoes added. I will definitely make this a regular soup batch.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and highly recommend it. I used 2 cauli's, 1 onion instead of leek (personal choice) and added 2 potatoes, with 2.5 litres chicken stock. It was so yummy and very easy to cook.
Outstanding. Was inspired by a photo posted by Sarah De Boar in the week so had to try this. Cannot use onion (Old Master Fussy) and sprinkled garlic powder and season all salt as I browned the snags. Young Mr Fussy liked it but said it had too much flavour...he will learn 🙂
I will definitely do this again as it went down reasonably well with the family.
Embarrassing admission time with a happy ending. I had to try this again after my first attempt was less than successful. Particularly when today, i rembered id been forced to put my tin with mixture in the fridge for an hour due to being needed elsewhere, then putting it in the sc straight from the fridge. So today i tried again and made sure i could put the tin straight in the slow cooker.,i also used slightly less splenda even though the box says it measures like for like...........and as i red the recipe today i stopped....2 cups of sr flour.?.....in my first attempt i had only used one cup. I had a good laugh at mt silliness. The result was far more satisfying today. It rose higher, it was less heavy and still tasted awesome.
OK the results are in. I used the splenda and the taste was beautiful, hence the four stars. It did not rise and it was very heavy, but I will definitely do it again. At the worst it will become a dessert with cream or ice cream. And this time I will take Paulene's advice (thankyou btw) before I use splenda as an exact substitute for the castor sugar. I will read the box and let everyone know...I was already thinking to 1/2 the spenda next time and see what happens. I also need to extend the cooking time, as I gave it an extra 30 min's and probably should have gone another 15...but I just had to taste it 🙂 and it was very nice
That sound lovely Sharon, thanks for posting it and I will try this in my next pumpkin soup batch.. Can you see any difference in flavour/texture/outcome if I was use a butternut p instead
Brilliant. Simplicity and such sweet juiciness. I served with a small dollop of ice cream and all enjoyed. I will definitely do this again and it has ease and versatility written all over it..
Forgot to add my rating. If i had two sets of stars i would give it 9
Dear nanny. Thankyou for this contribution to my world. Your recipe is simply stunning. Easy to prepare. My youngest son who automatically turns his nose up and wont try anything new ......... Loved it! I tried the tea towel method for the first time! Thankyou
Made another batch, using my own stock and substituting the leek with a sweet potato and a diced onion. I also add peppercorns for flavour, about a tbsp as I aim doing big batches. It is becoming my 'go to recipe' because the leftovers are so easy and handy for work lunch or tea.
Very nice. I did this with good loin chops and stuck exactly to recipe. Initially I thought I'd overdone the mint sauce based on aroma and an early sneaky taste test, but I had nothing to worry about. I served with oven roasted potato, carrot and puimkin and the sauce makes the perfect gravy for those too. Will definitely do it again and definitely recommend it for others.
This was lovely. I will do it again and add extra chilli as i love chilli. My fussy son liked it too
Just put the lid on the sc..mreLly lookng forward to trying this tonght
Very nice flavour but i really like my spice so will add extra chilli kick next time. I made the mistake of draining the juices with 30 min to go to flavour my boiled rice. Dried out the chicken a bit but a good lesson!!
Lovely, although my next batch will be back to pumpkin and potato. I added 2 chillis to this recipe and really enjoyed it plus had 5 man size meals left for freezing - really handy when you need a quick easy lunch for work or cant be bothered cooking when you get home.
