BC Week 19

A diverse meat-everyday menu that includes fried chicken, Asian style beef and pork in coffee sauce (you have to try that, it’s way better than it sounds). The menu below allows for different recipes instead of the weekend lunches. Those recipes can be taken to work in a lunchbox and served cold.

You can find the budget challenge recipes of all weeks under BC Recipes. They are linked below as well; click on the dish names at each day to get forwarded to the corresponding recipe.

Menu:
Saturday lunch: Green omelet (or this green pasta salad)
Saturday dinner: Pork noodle bowl
Sunday lunch: Leek and potato soup (or this leek and potato salad)
Sunday dinner: Pork in coffee sauce
Monday: Beef and Broccoli stir-fry
Tuesday: Steak rice bowl
Wednesday: No-cutlery-allowed fried chicken
Thursday: Fried rice with chicken
Friday: Skewered pork

My shopping list of this week:

  • 300gr beef steak
  • 500gr pork tenderloin (pref in two packages, one of 190gr, one of 310gr. Else you can freeze 190gr for later in the week when you open the packing)
  • 2 small chicken legs – or 350-400gr boneless chicken thigh
  • 500gr green beans
  • 500gr broccoli
  • 500gr spinach
  • 1 leek
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 5 onions
  • 250gr Swiss brown mushrooms
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 portions ready to stir-fry noodles (one package usually holds two separately packed portions) or 120gr dry noodles
  • 1 medium and 1 large potato (if buying a bag, check price and how often you use potato, sometimes 1kg bags are more expensive than 2.5kg bags…)
  • bunch of parsley
  • Greek yogurt – you need 175gr but get yourself a large pot and use it for breakfast or make your own Tzatziki
  • small bottle sweet and sour chili sauce
