Cooking with the iPad

I found a new iPad app called “The Photo Cookbook” that features gorgeous photography, and step-by-step cooking instructions. Plus you can email a shopping list:

“I’m cooking “honeyed apricot lamb with lemon couscous” from the Photo Cookbook iPad App and was wondering if you could pick up a few things:

4 lamb leg steaks
4 tsp ground coriander
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 small butternut squash
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
600 ml/1 pint chicken stock

2 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
100 g/3½ oz ready-to-eat dried apricots
2 tbsp clear honey finely grated rind and
juice of 1 lemon
200 g/7 oz couscous
salt and pepper
3 tbsp chopped fresh mint, to garnish”

The truth is I used pork tenderloin and didn’t have coriander, lemon, butternut squash or ginger and I used about 12 ripe apricots instead of dried. Lastly, I served it with acini de pepe pasta pearls instead of couscous, but it still tasted great.

Basically, you brown the meat in a large pan or dutch oven for a couple of minutes o each side in oil, then add the onion and chicken broth and bring to a boil. Next I added the apricots and honey and simmered for 20 minutes over medium heat. Serve with couscous, rice, risotto or pasta. Pretty easy!
