    Default Recipes - with no more than 4 ingredients

    If you have a 'simply' delicious recipe that has no more than 4 ingredients and you want to impress people with your culinary skills let us know what it is.
    Here is mine.
    Sweet and Sour Meatballs

    10 oz. jar Welsh's Grape Jelly
    12 0z. bottle of Heinz Chili Sauce
    Box Meatballs (I like Presidents Choice Blue Menu Italian)

    Pour Grape Jelly and Chili Sauce into a pot. Start on low heat then gradually increase until chili sauce and grape jelly are dissolved. Add thawed meatballs, cover and simmer slowly for about an hour. Eat with rice or mashed potatoes. You can add chopped green peppers to the sauce.
    This recipe is great if you have a lot of people to feed at short notice.

    Add to slow cooker:
    - Pork tenderloin (~1kg)
    - 1 can Dr Pepper, root beer, or (I've been told) beer.

    Cook on low for about 8 hours. Shred to bits with a couple of forks.

    Optional: Add sliced red peppers (or onions if you prefer).

    Serve on buns with condiments of choice.

    I thought you were looking for clean ingredient decks and not ingredients that are full of other ingredients (processed meat, jams, and sauces). Your recipe, according to the labels of the products suggested, have about a hundred.

    Mine:
    white fish loins, choose a flavourful species (cod, haddock)
    garlic
    ground coriander
    olive oil

    Crush the garlic and mix with olive oil, add coriander to taste. Rub on fresh or thawed fish loins (turning to coat). Bake 400F 10-12min or until 160F in center and flakes nicely with fork.

    Can be garnished with fresh ground pepper and some sea salt, but not required.

    Super quick. Incredibly healthy. Unique (nobody uses coriander). Stupid easy.

    Pork chops
    1 can Campbell's Wild Mushroom soup
    Milk
    Potatoes or rice

    Fry the pork chops. Either keep the chops in the pan or remove.
    Mix soup and 1 can full of milk.
    Add soup/milk mix to frying pan and let boil until it thickens.
    Serve soup sauce over chops and potatoes/rice.

    I find that Wild Mushroom has a lot better taste and tang than regular mushroom soup.

    Chorizo sausage
    White Kidney Beans
    Kale and a chicken breast.

    You fry the sausage with a bit of oil to release the paprika.
    Wash and dry one can of white kidney beans add to the sasuage and heat.

    meanwhile poach the chicken breast and stream kale.

    put beans and sausage on the bottom, then kale and top with chicken. sprinke with sale/'pepper/smoked paprika or any other spices you like.

    Yorkshire Pudding from Jamie Olivers show:
    This recipe turns out awesome.
    Turn oven to 450C
    Put 1 tablespoon oil into each muffin dish. Put muffin dish on top shelf of oven.
    You need..........

    Eggs
    MilK
    Flour

    Break 4 eggs into a measuring cup. Whatever measure of the eggs comes up use the same measure of milk and flour.
    Whisk together, get rid of lumps.
    When the oil in the muffin dish is VERY hot pour batter mixture into each dish and bake until golden brown 20-25 minutes.
    I have tried making these puddings several times but this is the best recipe I have come across. Great with roast beef, potatoes etc:

    Sidebar to this
    Use roast drippings instead of the oil for more flavour
    Make sure that your egg n' flour mixture is well chilled
    20 mins in fridge
    This will ensure fluffyness

    Quick no bake cheesecake.

    1 8oz. pckge. Cream Cheese
    1 Box Jello (flovor of your choice)
    1 Graham Cracker Crumb Crust
    Water

    Make Jello as per box instructions. When jello is disolved and water is still very hot cube the cream cheese and put into the hot jello mixture. You may have to keep the jello over the head until this is done. When the cream cheese has dissolved pour the mixture into the crust and put in fridge overnight for it to set.
    If you use lemon jello you could substitute lemon juice instead of water, cranberry juice with strawberry or raseberry jello, orange juice with orange jello.
