We had a trip to our local Asda today and I wanted to check out the prices. It’s not far away and it has a good gluten free section.
I bought frozen chicken breasts for £3.33 a kilo and frozen lamb chops for £4.50 for 800g but there were eight chops in there. So, £5.60 a kilo.
I added celery, carrots, onions, tomato purée, chicken stock, rosemary, mug of red wine, salt and pepper and topped it up with another two mugs of water.
I’ll cook that in the slow cooker for eight hours. The lamb casserole with sides will cost £1.50 per portion.
I then made a ragu with turkey mince, celery, onions, garlic, carrots, red wine, basil, salt and pepper. The turkey mince cost £3.25 for 800G with sides each portion will cost £1.
I don’t brown the meat, I just stir it all together and leave it cook for the day.
The lamb casserole will make two meals as will the ragu.
Slow cookers don’t cost much and don’t use much energy and they’re my easy way of cooking for the week.
I’ve also slow cooked pork shoulder steaks in a roasting dish with a lid with four pork steak, 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, one sliced onion, sliced mixed peppers which I buy frozen, tin of tomatoes and salt and pepper.
Our menu this week will be ragu sauce on top of steamed vegetables twice, slow cooked pork, roast potatoes and veggies twice, lamb casserole twice. We’ll have a baked potato and coleslaw supper, sandwiches or salad for lunch and toast or an egg on toast for breakfast.
That’s dinner done for the week.
