Favourite Dinner


Recommended Posts

I think I might have had this before... I seem to remember it being good. Whilst not quite my favourite dinner (it is a very good lunch with rice though), you should check out their cowboy beans. Really good.

Spicy pork and rice is my current favourite over the last few years I think. Thai food is my favourite but my girlfriend and I are no amazing cooks and Thai food is hard to get in this country (well, Thai food done well).

Ooh can you send me through the recipe? I love Pork - it's such a cheap yet versatile cut of meat. We make an adaptation of pork and olives, very Mediterranean and have it with rice.

Swedish meatballs (from pinch of nom).

My son has turned full on carnivore of late. So anything involving rendering chicken skin side down and slow cooking in a crock pot.

Sounds like my type of guy. I tend to make meatballs with 50/50 mix of pork and beef. Will look at the pinch of nom recipe though.

No real recipe as such, as I said I don't cook! The 'secret' is getting a load of peri peri seasoning (sorry I didn't mean this was a Thai dish, I realise now I made it sound like that) and thin cut pork. Waitrose do a six peice thin cut loin or shoulder pack, that's good for it, but chops work well too. The peri peri seasoning needs to be like this: peri_peri_1400x.jpg?v=1561822923

I use the Whole Foods one but have bought a couple locally that are good. Sprinkle on liberally and grill. Serve with your favourite rice (I go for wild grain mixed quite often but the Tilda Coconut, Lemongrass and Chilli one is good). Dish also work with chicken thighs in oven. For a bit of extra flavour (although this is really not needed), low salt Kikkoman soy sauce.

I’m sure it’s 75%beef 25% pork, but will try the 50-50. I’ll see if dig out the recipe and send it over.
I batch cooked a load of them and we ended up eating the lot in 3 days

Crab legs with drawn butter for starters, 16oz+ ribeye steak and decent chips for main, and Hagen Daaz Tiramisu ice cream for pudding. Washed down with Coca Cola.

Good thread idea, for me it’s the Hairy Bikers Spanish chicken, but wound up to 11 with extra chorizo etc, basically a non slimming version, it is completely gorgeous, especially with a glass of Rioja to hand.... [emoji39]

Chicken and chorizo is a match made in heaven.

You sound like you have it made my man. Even better when you don't have to cook it or clean up!

It’s best with most of a spicy chorizo, half a dozen chicken thighs, a big fat bulb of garlic split into cloves lots of green/red peppers and the best olive oil you can buy, oh and crusty fresh bread for mopping up after....

....and now I’m hungry!

@-Mac you had me until the Coke, that’s a deal-breaker!

Not seen this question here before. What is everyone's favourite dinner? (that's the meal at the end of the day, otherwise known as supper or tea if you're northern)

I am Northern so let me educate you.....tea is at 4pm and supper after 8pm.....

My son's favourite dish too. We also make an aubergine dish which is quite similar after first having it in a Turkish restaurant in Greece called Imam Bayildi which has a great background story. 

The name supposedly derives from a tale of a Turkish imam who swooned with pleasure at the flavour when presented with this dish by his wife, although other more humorous accounts suggest that he fainted upon hearing the cost of the ingredients or the amount of oil used to cook the dish.
