Come Saturday I am SO over cooking. It’s the one day of the week I wish that a fairy would appear in my kitchen and take over. Yeah, like that’s ever going to happen. Instead, I pour myself a large gin and tonic and hunt for some cooking mojo. More often than not, said mojo is to be found hiding at the back of the pantry behind a packet of something.
Which is why I often make this version of San Choy Bau. It requires little effort but is hugely flavourful. Tweens and Teens can also cook this meal from beginning to end (an added bonus). San Choy Bau or “Chub Chub” as we refer to it is what I cook when I don’t feel like cooking. It’ll be on the table in under half an hour.
This recipe variation on a classic Asian dish comes from Continental Foods (I tinkered with it a bit too) and requires two packets of their Chow Mein Mince base. Whilst I rarely use anything in a packet, come Saturday, I embrace anything that means less time slaving in the kitchen.
Kids love this…
Until next time.
What’s your go-to recipe when you can’t stand the thought of cooking?
