Chicken Shawarma

A recipe Adrian discovered and adapted. Great on salad or with flat bread and shredded vegetables.

Lightning Yakisoba

A very easy stir fry. Flower, root, stem, or bulb vegetables are best to use as leaf vegetables become soggy when cooked. We recommend broccoli and carrots.

If you can not find store bought, use this Yakisoba sauce recipe.

Pork Loin with Ground Cherries

I had never tried ground cherries before, but we were given a bag of them. We enjoyed eating them raw, but Mark said he had the perfect recipe for them. He was right.

Butter Chicken for Instant Pot

A friend brought this over for dinner. It was so good, I asked for the recipe 🙂 This is a mild recipe, so adjust the seasonings if you prefer spicier.

Better Biltong

While shopping, I discovered some nicely priced meat. I bought a few packages with the hopes of trying biltong in the dehydrator. This is a simple recipe that we prefer to the original one.

Do not reduce the salt but you can add some if you would like it saltier. Coriander and pepper are the traditional biltong spices, but add other spices to your preference. Some people add 1/2 tsp brown sugar per pound, but that is a taste preference.

If storing in the refrigerator, we like it best dried around 50% of original weight. Dry it longer (lose at least 65% of original weight) if wanting to use backpacking.
