This week in the crazy household we have taken part in the #MeatMatters challenge.
We have made two quick and easy dishes using Lamb and Beef,both of which are naturally rich in protein.
Lamb provides 4 essential vitamins that help reduce tiredness and fatigue~something I think is helpful for everyone with the busy lives we lead today.
Beef provides eight essential vitamins and minerals which support good health and well being, another bonus and a great reason to try new recipes to entice the whole family.
First up we made Beef Quesadilla’s
You will need~
*Soft tortilla wraps
*Red and green peppers
Firstly gently brown the onions,peppers and mushrooms in a pan, then add the beef strips and cook until thoroughly cooked. Line another frying pan with a soft tortilla wrap, add the beef and vegetables, cover those with the sliced cheese and top with another soft tortilla wrap. Press down gently and heat lightly until the cheese starts to melt and seals the wraps. Turn the wraps and once lightly browned on each side, remove and cut into quarters, serve with salad or sides of your choice.
Now for the lamb, I decided to go for a twist on a classic dish and made Chilli Shepherds pie.
You will need~
*Potatoes (butter and milk for mashing)
Peel and chop the potatoes, put on to boil whilst the lamb is cooking.
Gently cook the onions until softened and add the chillies and lamb mince.
Cook until thoroughly cooked, add the beans and tomatoes, stirring well.
Remove the cooked lamb and place into an oven proof dish. Mash the potatoes with the butter and milk then cover the mince and pop under the grill for 5~10mins until golden brown.
There you have it two quick, easy and tasty meals providing various vitamins and minerals for you and your family including~Vitamins b6 and b12, pantothenic acid,niacin and zinc.
