Mar Hor AKA Thai galloping horses

Mar Hor AKA Thai galloping horses This is like a Thai version of my Shaking Beef recipe. Remember that one? This dish is called Mar Hor AKA Thai galloping horses, and it is an absolute cracker.

I created this for Amy's dinner one day, as we were having some spicy soup. She gave this a big thumbs up. Everyone else at the dinner (in fact 6 people), all ...

The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, Hosted by Singapore

The World Pie Cooking Contest 2014, hosted by Singapore I got a few SMS pouring in from my mate, Steve, late one Saturday night - "Ring me dickhead, I need you to be the judge in a cooking competition tomorrow."
