A Mans Comfort Food: Valentine’s Day Edition

5 dishes that will keep hubby happy on Valentines day

Ah, Valentine’s Day! A day of love, roses, and… chicken fillets? I know some of us get to this age and think it’s just a day for the florists to get excited. But it’s also a day where you can quietly show your appreciation to a loved one via their tummy. Yes, you read that right! In our household, love is served on a plate usually with a golden crust and something tender, and juicy inside. You’ll see. 🤣

I thought I’d let you in on a little secret about my hubby. A list of my his favourite dishes from Bec’s Table.

Now, before you start thinking my husband’s culinary preferences are limited to the realm of air-fried chicken, let me assure you, that his tastes are as diverse as the spices in my pantry. 🤣

I asked him for his 5 favourites

Beef pie with oyster and Porter
This is a hearty and very tasty pie, that would be most welcome after ploughing the fields, and still comfortable at a dinner party.

Bec’s Chicken Laksa
This recipe has all the flavour but is still quite mild. If you want heat, do as I do and add fresh sliced chilli to yours.

Bec’s Smoky Pulled Pork
Slow cooked smoky pull pork, with 3 cooking options to suit every kitchen.

Pulling Pork with a fork smoky pork
Oven Lamb Shanks (slow cooked)
Starting this recipe off in the oven to brown your lamb shanks will save you time. It's a cheffy thing to do but it works so well at home as well.

  • Beef, Porter & Oyster Pie It’s been a while since I made one of these, maybe it’s time I made him one.
  • Pulled Pork that’s been slow-cooked to perfection, Tlist is a testament to the power of comfort food.
  • Lamb Shanks that fall off the bone.
  • Stuffed Pasta Shells that are a hug in a bite. And for those days when we’re craving something a bit more exotic.
  • Quick Chicken Laksa transports us to the streets of Malaysia with every spoonful.

But believe it or not, if I made the Crumbed Chicken with Easy Mayo Crumb every night, served straight from the air fryer onto his eagerly awaiting plate, I’d be met with nothing but joy and contentment. It’s so simple, delicious, and it’s versatile. You can serve it in a bun, sliced in a wrap, or over a vibrant salad. He always says Yum when he’s finished eating this meal.

I’ll keep an eye on the weather as we near February 14. If it’s hot, I’m happy to make a warm crumbed chicken salad – perfect for those days when you crave something light, yet satisfying. But if it’s cool (its so unpredictable in Melbourne), I’ll opt for one of the cozy and comforting recipes above.

Whether it’s a pie with a rich and deep history, pulled pork that melts in your mouth, lamb shanks that comfort your soul, pasta stuffed with love, a spicy laksa that adds flavour to your life, or chicken burgers that bring the crunch. It’s all about celebrating the flavours that bring us together.

Join us in this culinary celebration by trying out any of these favourites. And remember, sometimes the most romantic meals are the ones that are shared in the comfort of your home, with a dish that’s made with love (and maybe a little mayo crumb). 😂

Happy Valentine’s Day, food lovers! May your day be filled with love, laughter, and deliciousness.
