Pig recipes

Easy tasty pasta- hostel kitchen style


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped (or mixed chopped green onion greens and yellow onion)
  • olive oil (or any oil you can find on the free shelf)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vegesal or other seasoned salt
  • 1 large can (28 oz) of diced tomatoes
  • macaroni or other pasta, there must some left on the free shelf!

1 Bring a large pot of hot water to a boil and toss in the pasta, adding some salt.

2 In a skillet, brown the ground beef in a tablespoon of olive oil on high heat. Stir only infrequently so that the ground beef has an opportunity to brown.

Pig recipes

Yummie for my Tummy!

The Flying Pig is proud of the fact that we have a self service kitchen in all of our Amsterdam Hostels..  which is kind of unique here in Amsterdam!  pig1 pig3

Our Kitchen’s are fully equipped so you will be able to cook up something nice.. if you have the time of course. So if you have proudly whipped up something in the Pig kitchen and want to share it, this is to place to gloat. Also improvised Free-food-shelf recipes are more than welcome!

If (sadly) you are not cooking at The Pig and you want to help out your fellow kitchen clumsy Piggies you can drop some recipes over here.

The best ones will be put onto our website   Cool
