    4-500g lean mince

    2-3 cloves garlic

    1tsp ground cumin

    1tsp chilli powder (more if you like it hotter, I like 1 tsp plus a splash of scotch bonnet sauce!)

    1 tbsp marjoram or oregano

    1tsp sugar

    1 tin chopped toms

    400ml beef stock

    Method-dice onion, fry until semi soft, add chopped garlic and mince, fry until mince is just browned.

    add all spices etc and finsih frying, pour in chopped tomato and stock, reduce to a simmer and cover.

    I cook it like that for around 45-1 hour until the liquid is reduced and more flavourful.

    Add salt and pepper as you wish. Obv u can make this in big batches and can alter it in loads of ways just my basic template

    It's a low fat, high pro Thai green, add jasmine rice if you want.

    Fruity pork steaks

    • 4 boneless pork loin steaks, trimmed of any fat
    • 2 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
    • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
    • 1 large red onion, cut into thin wedges through the root
    • 4 red apples, cored and cut into eighths
    • 2 tbsp redcurrant jelly
    • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar or cider vinegar
    • 200ml chicken stock
    1. Dust the pork steaks with the Chinese five-spice powder. Heat half the oil in a frying pan and fry the pork for about 3 mins on each side until browned and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
    2. Add the remaining oil to the frying pan, reduce the heat slightly, then fry the onion wedges for 2 mins. Add the apples and cook, stirring occasionally, for another 3 mins.
    3. Add the redcurrant jelly to the pan, followed by the vinegar and then the stock. Bring to the boil and simmer rapidly, uncovered, for 8-10 mins until the sauce is slightly syrupy and the apples are tender. Gently reheat the pork in the sauce, turning to glaze each side

    Prawn and tomato stew

    • 500g new potatoes
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 large onion, sliced
    • 4 celery sticks, cut into pieces
    • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 2 anchovy fillets, chopped
    • pinch chilli flakes
    • 400g can chopped tomatoes
    • 250ml white wine

    • 400g raw king prawns, peeled
    • zest and juice 1 lemon
    • 1 tsp salted baby caper, rinsed
    • large handful parsley, chopped
    • toasted bread, to serve

    1. Put the potatoes in a saucepan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 15-20 mins or until cooked but still firm. Drain and, when cool enough to handle, thickly slice.
    2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over a low-medium heat. Add the onion, celery, garlic, anchovy and chilli, season and cook for 8 mins or until softened. Increase the heat to medium-high, add the tomatoes, wine and stock, and cook for 15 mins. Add the prawns, lemon juice, capers and potatoes. Cook for 5 mins more, or until the prawns turn pink and are just cooked. Mix together the parsley and lemon zest, then scatter over the stew, then serve with toasted bread, for dunking.
