A pie is the ultimate comfort food. In this recipe I use bacon, which is quite salty, but the rest of the seasonings are all natural. There isn’t a lot of sour cream in the sauce, but just enough to make it creamy and moreish. Keep moderation in mind when it comes to portion sizes and eat it with a big green salad!
For this rich and comforting lamb shank recipe, a tomato base is used with mustard, fresh herbs and lemon – always a delicious combination.
The hearty stew uses basic ingredients, with the addition of whole star anise to give it an aromatic flair. Star anise is delicious with both carrots, cabbage and beef or pork. One could easily play with different spices to ring the changes. Cumin seeds or even whole cloves and all spice berries are good options, or use a Chinese five spice mixture instead.
