Who doesn't love a roast dinner? Being a student at Leicester University, I find roast dinners to be the one meal that cures a hangover in seconds and makes you feel ten times better. When living in accommodation for students in Leicester that's close to town, it can be easy to always eat out or grab a takeaway then later wonder where all your money has gone. So that's why I'm here to show you how to save money, and how to cook the BEST roast dinner for less than £5! That's right, you can enjoy your favourite home cooked meal without breaking the bank. All you need for this dish is a hob, a slow cooker and your oven.
The best places to shop for ingredients include Aldi and Lidl, but I also recommend popping to Morrisons as they offer great deals on a range of meat. For this recipe, I found a pork shank that costed £2.82 leaving the remainder change for vegetables and roast potatoes.
That's all there is to it! A simple recipe that will leave you full and impress your friends if you host a flat meal.
