Less than 24 hours into the new year and my cookbook challenge seems to be going well – even if I did start it last year!
Mr C was responsible for cooking up the pork stroganoff from Gary Rhodes' Keeping it Simple even though some of the recipe wasn't quite as simple as the book's title suggested. Our brandy just didn't want to flambe no matter how much Mr C tried. A shame as otherwise it was quite tasty and relatively simple to make. It did remind us a fair bit of the paprika pork recipe from one of the 101 books, but the mushrooms did add a certain something special. Maybe the next time we make paprika pork we should try to remember to add mushrooms too.
Keeping it Simple really is a cookbook that we have hardly touched since I brought it home. It contains loads of recipes for what look like hearty dishes and judging by the short instructions they do appear to be relatively simple too. Not at all bad for a book that I picked up for just four pounds in a charity shop a couple of years ago!
