Basic chowder

This dish was introduced to me by a friend and the ingredients are very similiar to ABC soup except with the addition of bacon and cream. My friend scolded me when I cut off the fatty part of the bacon because she believes it is the best bit.

I'm sorry but it is my arteries that will be ending up clogged. :P

Ingredients:(Serves 5)
  • 5 bacon rashers, cut
  • 5 potatoes, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 1.25L water
  • 6 tsp chicken bouillon powder
  • 200g meat
  • 1 tbsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tbsp dried chives
  • 300mL cream
  1. Fry the meat and bacon until cooked then add in onions, carrots and potatoes. Stir fry for 3 minutes.
  2. Pour in 1.25L of water and add in the chicken bouillon powder to make chicken stock.
  3. Sprinkle in dried chives and dried parsley and simmer on low heat until the potatoes are tender.
  4. Pour in cream and stir well. Leave for 1 minute then serve.

I love a good chowder (prefer seafood than meat). It makes an easy and hearty dinner!

I agree! But buying seafood blows my budget as a student living overseas. :P
