Josh is back for the festive holidays and so it is back to meat patties , meat burgers and anything meat ....I have two carnivores in the house right now so have to put on the thinking cap on how to prepare the meat in the fridge. I have beef, chicken and pork all stored up in the freezer. For dinner I prepared some capsicum meat patties for him and the Wild Boar and guess who is the happiest ? Of course , the Wild Boar ! For I have been cooking more veggies and fish dishes the past weeks, trying to wean him off meat and for the next 7 days , he will get to eat meat...and he has Josh to thank for :p
These patties are the simpliest to make for your family and it is full of flavor too. The meat patties are packed with diced red and green capsicum, minced garlic and seasoned with chicken stock powder , cayenne powder and corn flour. Pan fried them in olive oil and the aroma from the sizzling meat filled the air , bringing the Piggies to the kitchen :) whoa....their smelling organs are in good condition :p
I used the aromatic oil drippings
from the meat patties to cook some shredded
chinese cabbage for the meat patties .
these patties not only look colorful but taste good too :)
Josh loves this simple yet tasty meat patties
and the Wild Boar had a good time feasting them too LOL!
