Family-Sized Meat Recipes That Won't Break The Budget
My family are not great eaters of meat. We are certainly not into steak and vegies every night - in fact I'm not much good at cooking steak anyway. We occasionally have a roast dinner but even then it is cooked in a way that minimizes fat consumption.
Heaps of meat signifies heaps of cholesterol to me. We eat chicken regularly and I strive to use turkey mince probably once a week. I was told once that turkeys don't get fed hormones and antibiotics which sounds pretty good to me. There doesn't seem to be much fat in turkey mince which is another bonus.
My family enjoys rissoles whether I make them from beef or from chicken and we always seem to have left-overs which are eagerly devoured by our 19 year-old for breakfast the next morning. The recipe is listed below. Any other left-overs are used later that day sliced up in sandwiches - that's if Rissole Boy hasn't already scoffed them.
