    The Cooking Thread

    This may be silly on a car forum, but I thought I might start a thread about what we do when we're not workin on our cars.

    I used to absolutely hate cooking. And I still dont like the time it takes to cook / make food. However I do enjoy eating it! Especially good healthy food.

    So of recent times, I've taken up some cooking. Tonight I made mexican. Its nothing special, but it was better than heading out to Maccas or KFC.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------







    Recipe:
    1 Fajita Kit (from coles)
    500g strip beef (I cut it up into finer pieces)
    Chilli Flakes
    1 Lemon (I cut off the skin and dice it up)
    1 Carrot
    1 Celery Stick
    1 Tomato
    1 Onoin
    1/2 a Capsicum
    Splash of oil.
    1 small tin of baked beans.

    Basically throw the beef and a little oil into a fry pan and roast the beef. Then throw in the onion / capsicum. Then cook til onion is browned. Then throw in the seasoning packet (from fajita mix) and other ingredients. Add chilli flakes and other seasoning.

    Heat up fajita wraps in microwave for 10-15seconds then serve with salad and cheese. Add salsa from fajita mix to your wrap.

    Feel free to add things to your liking, all in all it takes around 1/2hr to cook. Quick and easy.

    I've made other meals in the past that are more adventurous. Perhaps you guys could add some quick and easy meals to this thread.

    i usually have to kill people. or at least get to sleep with them after passing on the secrets of many of my culinary creations but i guess i will make an exception here. Next time i go to the recipe draw might pass on a lil Chinese, lasagna or beef chilli recipe people tend to like.

    I like this idea!

    If people put up recipes I'll try them out.
    At home my cooking is pretty boring and simple because I feel the time it takes to make a good meal could be spent doing something more productive or financially beneficial.

    I love a good restaurant meal though and we tend to eat out way too much.

    So yeah, please post recipes.

    The recipe is now added to the first post for the Mexican Fajitas.

    I figured there would be others like me that are far too busy to cook and end up getting take out way too often. Thought something like this would help.

    Fast Easy-Peasy Green Thai Curry!

    One of the most expensive take away meals you can buy is Thai. It is so cheap, easy to make, and tastes as good if not better homemade, we rarely buy it take away anymore!

    Ingredients

    2 x medium chicken breasts diced ~200gm each (You can substitute chicken thigh)
    1 x jar green curry paste
    1 x can coconut milk (can also use lite version)
    1 x cup of jasmine rice
    2 x tbsp fish sauce
    2 x tsp sugar
    2 x tbsp oil (i used peanut, use whatever you got!)
    4 x cups frozen vegies (whatever is in the freezer - you can use fresh if you like but takes a lil longer and frozeen veges are actually more nutrient rich)

    Time taken: 20-25 mins.







    1.Whack your green curry paste and oil into a pan over a low heat, stir and fry off slightly until fragrant





    2. Place your vegies in a microwave safe bowl and place in the microwave for about 4-5 mins. you don't want to completely cook them, but want them ready, unfrozen and slightly warm for you a little later. If your using fresh dice whatever your using into bite size pieces and set aside


    3. We have a rice cooker, which actually does a fantastic job. But to be honest, using the same absorption method in a microwave is just as good and alot easy than boiling it. Basically for every cup of rice add two cups of water into a microwave safe container and 10 mins should cook 1 cup depending on your microwave.





    4. Next toss in your diced chicken, turn up the heat and stir through until the chicken is browned and nearly cooked.





    5.Open up your coconut milk and throw in the contents and stir through thoroughly.


    6. Now add your fish sauce and sugar. stir through thoroughly.


    7. Grab your now warmish frozen vegies, and whack them in.





    8. Now let it simmer for about 5 or so minutes, you are just letting the flavours permeate through everything and warming the vegies further. If your using fresh vegies, make sure you cook them through until al dente at least. Obvioulsy takes a little longer than using frozen, which is another reason I use them!





    And your done, in less than 10 steps! Serve in a BIG bowl with your rice, and make sure to grab a ladle full of the liquid and it right pour over the top





    Will do another one next week! Let me know what you think and if you give it a shot how yours turn out!

    Bon Appetite!
