Apricot Beef

I love to cook! Sometimes I nail it, sometimes I don’t, but this apricot beef recipe was a definite win that I just have to share!

Ingredients:

  • 600g of beef. I used some of our sausages but any cut is great.
  • 2 handfuls of deseeded apricots. Mine were homegrown and put in the freezer, apricot jam or canned apricots would be a good alternative.
  • some cut up veggies. I used a carrot, kale, and onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ginger
  • 2 cloves of garlic crushed
  • Rice to serve. It’s also great with mashed spuds or cous cous

Brown the meat for a few minutes, add all other ingredients except the rice and let simmer. Cook the rice while the rest is cooking. Its literally that easy.

This is great combination to slow cook with a cut such as chuck or osso bucco. The process of slow cooking will make these cuts so tender they fall apart. Yum! My mouth is watering as I write this, I’m so glad I have more apricots in the freezer to make this again!

Our Sausages

These are not your average snags. While we love playing around with recipes a few things remain.

Firstly we don’t use preservatives. This means a reduced shelf life so simply freeze until you need them.

Secondly our sausages are gluten free. Most sausages have a filler to hold moisture when cooked so make sure you don’t overcook and lose all the moisture.

We use traditional hog casings. This allows the sausage to ‘breathe’ and the flavours of smoking or cooking can permeate the sausage.

We love playing with recipes. This round we are doing rosemary and mustard, and sundried tomato and feta. My mouth is watering as I write this! We’ve also added some carrot, celery and kale to add nutrients and a subtle flavour enhancement. Great for fussy kids or for a camping trip.
