Sep 22: Shin Bowl; Lamb Rissoles with Lettuce, Parmesan and Pomegranate Seeds

Lunch

Boredom with sandwiches had us turning to a Shin Noodle Bowl. A pack of four was $3.69 or 93c per serve, which proved to be quite generous and a satisfying – if spicy hot – meal. We do, however, only use one of the two flavor pouches.

Dinner

Our experiment with Soutzoukakia as rissoles was successful, so we did them again.

  • Ground lamb was $5.99 or $2.00 per serve on special at Aldi
  • An egg is 51c or 17c per serve
  • 8 oz Panko breadcrumbs are $2.99 and we used half, or 25c per serve
  • Parmesan is $3.99 for 8oz and we shared 2 oz or 50c per serve
  • 1/4 cup and a tablespoon of red wine – halved – is 34c┬áper serve
  • Onions, shallot and garlic adds 25c per serve
  • Pomegranate Seeds were $4.49 and we used about half, or $1.13 per serve
  • Shaved parmesan comes in a $5.49 pack, and we used 1/4 or 46c per serve,
  • Butter Lettuce adds 38c per serve
  • Add 30c for Dressing ingredients.

The Lamb Rissoles came had a crisp shell and moist tender inside. This is a much herbier version than the traditional Australian Beef recipe. The Lettuce was a good carrier of the dressing and foil to the Parmesan. The Pomegranate seeds added a fresh pop, and crunch. A very enjoyable meal for $5.28 per serve.
