Pork Chops with a Rosemary, Orange and Mustard Sauce

Pork chops are such a good midweek dinner. The 3 flavours of the sauce work so well together and you can serve it with so many different sides. I chose polenta for this dinner. It was so comforting I really am a Sauce addict I always do the recipe for 4 people even though it’s…

Tenderising Pork Brine

This is the equivalent to buttermilk chicken. I always think pork chops can be a little bit stringy and slightly chewy. I don’t like eating pork pink so this is such a good way to keep the pork nice and moist without worrying about cooking it too much. You can put any aromatics in it….

Herby Sausage Pizza

So I’m trying to empty the freezer and had some sausage meat and black pudding hanging around. I love black pudding and decided it would be nice on a pizza, you get pepperoni right, this is just our version. It was so yummy I did add some extra oregano as I have recently been to…

Broccoli and Butter Bean Bake with a Black Pudding Crumb

Sometimes a one pot hits the spot! You can make this vegetarian by not using the black pudding. I’m a Devonshire girl we usually go for hogs pudding but I also love black pudding too and to be fair as we mastered the hogs pudding we found it easy to make the black pudding. Hogs…

Tomato baked Gnocchi with Parsley and Sun Dried Tomato Breadcrumbs

Sometimes it’s so nice to have comforting and familiar flavours. That’s exactly what this does it makes you want to curl up even though it’s summer. I love the contrast of all the different textures of the humble tomato, tinned and fresh in the sauce then dried in the breadcrumbs. Then you’ve got the added…

Black Pudding Bon Bons

My husband loves black pudding and so do I to be fair. I think the reason I love it so much is because I love spices and black pudding has lovely earthy and warming spices to it. I am quite fussy with it though I’ve had a few bad ones where the iron flavour is…

Miso Tan Tan Ramen with Black Bean Pork

I had never heard of tan tan noodles before until I saw them on a program called great British takeaways. It got really good reviews from the public who ate it so I just had to give it a go. I started some research and came across a really good recipe that used soy milk…

Griddled Chorizo on a Pickled Fennel, Lentil and Tomato Salad

When I was out to lunch recently I had a dish which came with quick pickled cucumber and courgette salad, it was so delicious. I did this version using fennel as it holds up well to flavouring and I knew it wouldn’t get too soft. The pickling liquid isn’t too overpowering at all it actually…

Delicious Herb and Mustard Crusted Roast Pork

I got this joint reduced and would normally do a slow pulled pork recipe in the slow cooker but as it was cheap I decided to do a simple roast. It was amazing I was naughty and did Yorkshire pudding with it which made it even more scrumptious. The pork was so juicy but retained…
