Home Nations Gourmet Meat Box from Meat Porter

Lamb Chops





















I'm a massive Rugby fan, so was delighted to hear that in celebration of the start of the Rugby World Cup today, online artisan butcher Meat Porter has put together a selection of gourmet meats showcasing the best of our fabulous home nations teams. The Home Nations box retails at £58 and includes the following:
    4 Welsh Lamb Loin Chops
    2 x 8oz Irish Ribeye Steaks from the heritage dexter breed
    2 x 8oz English Pork Cutlets
    6 Scottish Venison and Red Wine Sausages
    2 x 8oz Gammon Steaks
    1/2 lb Back Bacon

    The box is available for the duration of the Rugby World Cup (with super speedy next day delivery) and I'll be incorporating some recipes using the products in next weeks meal plan.

    Come on England! ...and here is a lovely reminder of 2003
























    I was sent a gourmet meat box to review. All opinions are my own.

    Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

    These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.

    Slow Cooker Chilli Con Carne (No Browning Required)

    My slow cooker is my best friend on week days, especially when it's a recipe like this Chilli Con Carne that requires NO pre browning of the meat. It takes all of 3 minutes to 'make' before leaving the slow cooker to do all the hard work during the day. Then, when you get in from a long day at work and the kids are starving, all you need to do is cook some rice and grate some cheese! If you have any leftovers you can stir them into cooked pasta the next day along with some creme fraiche and grated cheddar for a super simple chilli pasta bake. Everyone in my house loves this recipe...well apart from the kidney beans which the kids aren't too keen on!



    TOP TIPS FOR MAKING SLOW COOKER CHILLI CON CARNEIf your children actually like kidney beans (mine usually pick them out) add another tin for extra fibre.Instead of adding the spices separately you could buy a Chilli Con Carne spice sachet (e.g. Schwartz) and use that instead.If you like a bit of heat add a tsp of dried chi…

    Golden Syrup and Oat Cookies

    My Mum used to make these moreish buttery cookies all the time and they bring back great childhood memories of licking the syrup spoon clean. They take less than 10 minutes to make and 10 minutes in the oven so they are super speedy for busy days...and most importantly the kids love them.

    Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake: An Alternative Christmas Cake

    Every year I make a Christmas cake and every year I'm the one that ends up eating the thing. So in a concerted effort to maintain my waistline, this year, instead of a traditional Christmas cake I'll be making an alternative Chocolate Orange Biscuit Cake to enjoy. After all, who can resist the quintessentially festive chocolate orange combo?

    The beauty of a biscuit cake is that it can be made 3 or 4 days ahead and left in the fridge until you want to serve it (or a cold garage if the fridge is bursting at the seams!). All you need is a dollop of clotted cream and you're sorted. If this is being made for an entirely adult audience I would use all dark chocolate in the topping.


    TIPS FOR MAKING A FESTIVE BISCUIT CAKEAdd some fudge pieces or nuts if that's what your family likesDecorate with festive sprinklesIf you prefer make in a large square baking tin and cut into slices
