Pork Kebabs

Hello guys!

It’s been a bit hectic at work – my full time job as a customer relations advisor at Kurt Geiger – and busy weekends chilling out with my best bitches.

We’ve thrown out our old BBQ, so until we replace it with a new one, I got to use the grill for my BBQ style recipes.

This weekend I got some nice camera lied red onion pork sausages from lovely Waitrose – you see I only shop at Waitrose at the beginning of the month.. When my bank account is still popping with sssshmoney. And of course my obsession for courgette salad will never die, so I have made a nice fresh courgette and feta cheese salad to go with my pork sausages kebab!

 
For the pork sausage kebabs, I’ve cut the sausage into pieces.. 3 chunks of cut sausage per stick! So if you get a pack of 6 sausages, you can make 6 kebab sticks, that could be a nice meal for two people! One whole red onion cut into chunks and one red pepper cut into pieces – I wanted to use vegetable that would bring some life to the dish.. The bad thing about being on Atkins, the color of the food can be a bit boring!

I’ve put the kebabs in the grill until the meat was cooked.. I like when the vegetables still have a bit of crunch. While this is cooking, I’m using my baby Benriner (vegetable spiralizer) and cutting the courgettes in long thin strands. I’ve seasoned it with salt, black truffle olive oil and garlic.

 

You can use any meat for the kebabs, if you have left over burger meat from BBQ or other vegetables you can also use that too! Good thing about my recipes, it’s to YOUR taste. I’m here to guide you and give you ideas!

Please try them at home and let me know how it goes!

Much love, Ana xx

Pork Steaks and Aubergine

Sorry I haven’t posted anything lately, I have been working hard and haven’t had time to cook a lot and make inventions.. I have been having chicken thighs, steak and scrambled eggs for the whole week basically..  Being on a Ketogenic diet, really limits the stuff I can eat, I have to add everything on my MyFitnessPal app and make sure I don’t exceed 20g of carbohydrates a day and keep my fat intake high. Since I have to eat fatty meats, I’ve decided to get some pork loin steak today, and to go with it, I have chosen aubergine.. Aurbegine is a vegetable with almost no carb content – so if you have spent the day munching on macadamia nuts like me, you watch your carb in takes and balance it out.     You must know that this dish contains a lot of butter.. I have not only fried the aubergine and the pork loin steaks in butter, I have also served it with garlic and parsley butter – yes obviously homemade! – I cut the aubergine in thin slices and fried them first, seasoned with chili powder, garlic powder and salt.  I’ve seasoned my pork loins with salt, pepper and garlic powder, fried them in butter. They are quite thin, so you don’t need much cooking time.  For the garlic butter, I added dry flat parsley herbs, a bit of salt and lots of garlic powder to the butter! In my opinion you can use this butter with beef, chicken or fish.. Nothing tastes better than butter and garlic..  I hope you all had a good weekend!  Ana x
