I wanted an easy tea tonight and this fitted the bill just fine. It's one of those feed a family for a fiver recipes from Sainsbury's. You see I've gone and done my back in again and didn't want to be faffing around in the kitchen for too long.
There was a bit of a playful incident here on Sunday morning (nothing naughty I hasten to add!) which has resulted in my lower back ceasing up. A trip to the chiropractor's this morning, £32.00 shelled out and I can once again stand up straight and walk without limping.
So if you fancy a tasty tea, don't want to spend too long in the kitchen and like bacon and rice then give this a whirl.
This amount feeds G, T and S. This evening it was accompanied with garlic dough balls.
Fry a packet of chopped up bacon rashers or cubed pancetta with an onion (have used a leek before), a diced carrot and a pepper. Tonight it was a red one. Add 200g arborio rice and stir for 2 minutes. Pour in 500ml stock and bring to the boil. Transfer to a baking dish. Cook @ 130c (mine is a fan oven so lower temp) for 20 mins. Remove from oven, stir and add 200ml more stock and a tin of sweetcorn (forgot that bit tonight). Turn oven up to 150c and cook for another 15-20 mins. Serve and enjoy watching family eat and leave clean plates.
