Here's my first pre-natal recipe that I can bring myself to cook is "Braised Beef Shin". Beef shin has a soft chewy texture after braising thus making it a nutritious energy providing dish for weak expectant mothers, which at the same time also helps strengthen ligaments and joints.
This recipe is very much a 'Kids Pleaser'. It has all the ingredients most children would like, can't say all though. Like the saying goes "One man's meat is another man's poison". This is not the easy, dump all in one-pot recipe. It need a little searing, braising and watching over the fire kind of stuff. If you are hard-pressed for time, then better leave this recipe alone and attempt it another day.
