Every kitchen should have a big pan in it and every cook should learn the art of one-pan wonders.
A big pan is just so inviting, like open arms, it always has an extra serving for one more hungry soul. Especially now that I have teenagers, without any warning or notice they would bring a visitor to lunch. So, especially over weekends, I make pan-food. Whether it is a deliciously fragrant Spanish chicken and rice dish or a creamy chicken and mushroom stew.
If you really want to steal the children’s hearts, try a big pan full of fragrant mince and let them make their own Sloppy Joes!
Tinned food is a handy substitute if you have to make something in a hurry. So stock up on tinned tomatoes and beans and you can make this filling pork and bean stew in no time at all… Again, a one-pan wonder!
So next time you go to the shop, visit their catering equipment department and buy yourself a big old stainless steel pan… You can thank me later!
