Ten Ways to Cook with Meat

What’s for dinner tonight?! If one of your new year’s resolutions is to cook more from scratch and eat less takeaways then here are some ideas to inspire you:

  1. A traditional roast dinner. Whether it is Sunday or not, most families love a good roast dinner. Prepare ahead so it isn’t too onerous a task after work mid week.
  2. Brunch time. Go all continental and serve ham and cheese with a range of bread, cereals and fruit. Lay everything out on your kitchen worktops and invite everyone to help themselves.
  3. A winter barbecue. The sun may be hiding but fire up the patio heater, wrap up warm and have some burgers on the decking. Fun for a weekend with the family.
  4. Stir-fry heaven. Quick and easy and a good way to use up bits and bats from the fridge. Cut meat into fine strips for ease and try a range of sauces from sweet chilli to black bean.
  5. The all day breakfast. A welcome sight on a cold day: get into bacon and sausages grilled or fried and gather together for a feast.
  6. Try something different. Seek out specialist suppliers and serve up a new taste from rabbit to ostrich to ox cheeks. You never know, you just might like it.
  7. Revamp the kitchen. Fed up of food being burnt on the outside and raw in the middle? Ditch the old oven and get a new kitchen from
  8. Slow cooking for tenderness. Dust off the slow cooker and put it to good use this winter. Great for stews and curries, meat will be incredibly tender to eat.
  9. Whiz it up. Blend minced beef fine in bolognaise sauce for pasta to get it past the kids: throw in a whole range of veggies too and they’ll never know!
  10. Fall in love with soup. Perfect for winter and healthy too. Ditch the sandwiches at lunchtime and take a flask to work instead.
