Much to my family’s disappointment, I’m just not a fan of Shepherd’s or Cottage Pie. Nothing to do with the taste or flavour, I just can’t handle the texture of mince with mashed potato for some reason! Keep to make a nice, wintery and warming meal this weekend, I decided to put a bit of a twist on the regular Cottage pie by replacing the traditional beef mince with some chunky beef stewing steak and turning the whole thing into more of a Steak and Ale pie vibe. The addition of the stilton to the mash is wonderful, it adds a lovely tang to what is a smooth and comforting pie topper. If you aren’t keen on blue cheese, simply leave this out. If you do, the points are 10sp per portion.
Chimichurri steak is one of my favourite dishes to eat when I’m out so it’s been on my list of things to make for a while. Tonight, needing a meat fix, I decided to give it a whirl and it the result was delicious. The whole meal is lovely and light and summery with some delicious flavours and textures.
