CASSEROLE SAUCE

Hello! And TGIS. It's time for our food Friday and I'm dropping it like it's hot! I know, I know, this is a little late for my recipe post, but I figured it could come in handy for Saturday shopping against Sunday lunch. Today, we are making casserole sauce. So, without further ado, here we go:

INGREDIENTS:

  • Vegetable oil
  • Red onions (regular onions)
  • Garlic
  • Spring onions
  • Protein (Chicken, Beef, Snail e.t.c.)
  • Fresh red pepper
  • Crayfish
  • Fresh Tomatoes
  • Carrots
  • Green beans
  • Cabbage
  • Cucumber
  • Sweet corn
  • Hot dog
  • Spices (curry, thyme, seasoning cube) and salt.
  • Green bell peppers








RECIPE:

  • Prepare all the ingredients, that is, wash the washables, peel the peelables, grind the groundables and scrape the scrapables, lol. But you know what I mean though.
  • Chop up all the ingredients into very tiny cubes, to the size of the sweet corn or close to it. (As shown in the photos).
  • In a pot placed over medium heat and allowed to dry, add two spoons of vegetable oil and allow to heat up a bit.
  • Add the red onions, allow to simmer for 30 seconds to 1 minute, then add the chopped garlic. Stir for 1-2 minutes then add the spring onions.
  • Next, add the meat (already cooked, I used smoked chicken in this case)
  • Stir in the fresh red pepper (either chopped or grounded) and 2tablespoons of grounded crayfish.
  • Keep stirring the mixture gently, you could turn up the heat, but not full blast.
  • Next, add the fresh tomatoes, and allow to simmer for a few minutes, just to allow the excess water from the tomatoes dry up a bit.
  • Add the carrots and green beans and stir continuously.
  • When the carrots and green beans become a bit soft, add the cucumber, cabbage, sweet corn and hot dog. These are added late so it doesn't become soggy by the time the sauce is ready.
  • Spice it up to taste.
  • Finally, add the Green bell peppers, stir for 30 seconds and turn off your cooking stove because food is ready.
*PS** if you are trying to eat healthy, there's a way for you around it too. Use very small amount of water in place of vegetable oil and boil everything. This is the method I employ when making it for my parents and they absolutely love it.

So, there you have it. Recipe for Sunday lunch. I'd love to hear from you, let me know if you tried it and how it turned out.

  3. It's a beautiful dish, and I bet it is delicious! I'd have to cut back on some spice for us. Love my salads chopped small like that, so you get some of everything in each bite and the salad is more moist with less dressing.
