Jun 9: Yeros Wrap; Shredded Beef Ragu, ‘Yellow Mash’ and Sugar Snap Peas

Lunch

Yeros wrap time again.

  • The fully cooked sliced gyro/yeros meat is $3.99 per 10oz pack. There are really four serves, so each serve is very slightly cheaper than the chicken, at $1.00 per serve.
  • The flatbread is 50c per serve
  • Hummus is $3.99 per container and we used about 1/6 or 33c per serve
  • We served 1/4 of the tabouli salad or 67c per serve.

Lunch today cost $2.50.

Dinner

We still had half the shredded beef ragu left and decided to serve with mashed potato. Then Foodie Greg saw some chopped butternut squash and his mind went back to ‘yellow mash’ – the name his mother used for squash and potato mixed, in order to get him to eat squash or pumpkin!

We elevated the mash by using sour cream, pecorino and spring onion, and it was really tasty and a perfect companion to the ragu. It makes at least four serves, so we have two for bubble and squeak later.

  • Beef chuck steak cost $6.93 or $1.73 per serve
  • The sweet onion was 46c or 12c per serve
  • Sliced crimini mushroom – a bit more than the recipe called for – cost $2.29 or 58c per serve
  • Organic baby carrots were $1.69 for the pack, of which we used 1/4, or 11c per serve
  • Beef broth is $1.99 for 2 pints, or 13c per serve
  • Crushed canned tomatoes with no added salt were $1.49 or 38c per serve
  • Add 30c for thyme and other seasonings
  • The squash cost $1.99 or 50c per serve
  • Russet potatoes weer $1.49 but we used 2/5 or 15c per serve
  • Sour cream is $2.99 for a tub, and we used 1/3 or 25c per serve
  • Spring onion  adds 15c per serve
  • Snow peas were $2.99 but we used only half a container, or 75c per serve.

The mash was a much better accompaniment to the ragu, while the blanched sugar snap peas added crunch, all for just $5.15 per serve.
