spinach pie recipes

This recipe really surprised me, I wasn’t going to cook it as I’m really fussy with spinach dishes because I actually don’t like spinach. Well silverbeet anyway, I actually love baby spinach in all my salads.

Mexican Pulled Beef

mexican recipes

Cooking the meat very slowly like this makes it so tender in just falls apart. A great throw in the middle if the table and make your own dish. I like meals like this where everyone puts there own together.

This makes a large amount of meat. So if you have left overs. You could use it the next night for mexican spuds YUM. Bake your whole potatoes, slit them open then top with a dob of butter, your beef and salsa left overs, then a big dollop of sour cream and maybe even a sprinkle of cheese. mmmmm that sounds better than the wrap hay lol.
