Pot Roast Beef with Mushrooms
For this dish you an use any beef joint but remember the cheaper cuts will need a lot longer to tenderise them. I served my Pot Roast Beef with lovely creamy mashed potatoes which soaked up all the lovely mushroom gravy. If you have a top pot you can cook your potatoes in that and they will be perfect to mash just before serving.

Portuguese Fish Stew

Portuguese Fish Stew - Video
This Portuguese fish stew is normally made in a cataplana which is a Moorish designed copper domed dish. I have made mine in a thermal cooker which like the cataplana keeps the flavours in so they develop their intensity while cooking. The Western Algarve style cooking includes potatoes, firm white seasonal fish, seafood, peppers and a hint of chili. Once served from the thermal cooker all that is needed is a spoon and some crusty bread to mop round the bowl.
