Family Favourites: Mum’s Shepherds Pie

We were on cooking together and I wanted hubby to choose some dishes to make. This was one his mum (and mine) used to make all the time growing up.  I have adapted it only slightly to fit with both versions from both mums and what I had at time of cooking eg lactose free milk which normally be full cream milk.

Grass Fed Beef Mince #1 Base

Using Grass Fed Beef Mince for different meals . Out of 2x 500g packs of mince I got 4 meals. see recipes below. These are also paleo recipes that I revert back to. The shaxo xing cooking wine may not be paleo. I didn’t have any red wine which is usually in the recipe. It is also the base for bolognaise sauce.

Udon Noodles

I love udon noodles but don’t have them often as I cant have a lot of carbs anymore. So this was a treat for me. This post will show different ways to use them. Often I serve them with Thai oyster sauce, chili, garlic, and sesame oil. This time I did a little different to use up ingredients in fridge and pantry. Tip : Thai Oyster Sauce is not as salty as Chinese oyster sauce and can be found at any Asian supermarket. Often Asian Sauces are a lot cheaper at the Asian supermarkets can be less than half price.
