This slow cooked pork scotch is a dish that just keeps on giving. Cook it one night alongside a zingy salad and stuff it into rolls the next. It’s packed with flavour, it’s succulent and it’s downright delicious! The acidity from the pickle is perfect for cutting through the richness of the pork.

Naturally, we'd eat anything that's topped with a pillow of mash potato and golden cheese, so in celebration of our money-saving cuts, we're sharing one of our favourite ways of cooking our beef mince, a Classic Cottage Pie! Not only is it also packed with veg, but it warms you from the inside out, providing you with the perfect dinner to come home to after a cold Melbourne winters day.
Eleni from My Family's Food Diary has shared a spin on a classic Cypriot dish, Ttava lefkaritiko. It'll fill your kitchen with a sweet and flavoursome aroma. The rice breaks down completely as it soaks up all the spiced juices and the beef becomes super tender to bring you the ultimate comfort food.
