Making Hubby one of his favourite meals tonight Steak, chips, Onion Rings and griddled vine tomatoes with Peppercorn Sauce.
I have a couple of King Prawns that need using in the freezer
so it’s now Surf and Turf 😇
As a special addition, our wild garlic has come through in the garden, so I have washed, chopped and sautéed some with the prawns – this hasthe most amazing taste.
Not going to bore you with how to cook steak and chips, my top tips for steak are –
1. Get the pan or griddle really hot
2. Oil the meat, only use salt to season after its cooked
3. Leave to rest before serving
I make my own Peppercorn Sauce in (you’ve guessed it) the Thermomix, into the bowl add a teaspoon of green peppercorns, and whizz at speed 10 for 10 seconds, then in goes a large peeled banana shallot, a peeled clove of garlic, blitz on speed 4 for 10-15 seconds, scrape down the bowl and add 20g butter – cook for 4 minutes, varoma heat speed reverse 1.
Scrape down bowl and add 30ml brandy and cook again for another 3 minutes, varoma heat reverse speed 1.
Add 200ml of beef stock and cook at heat 100, reverse speed 1 for 7 minutes.
Add 50ml of double cream, season and Mix for a few seconds on reverse – then it’s a just taste and adjust till it ‘right’ add a little more cream if too thick.
Dinner is served……
For pud, I am making Icecream sandwiches, the Salted Caramel and Homemade Fudge Icecream, I made yesterday.
barely any calories 🤣
The Chocolate chip cookie recipe is Here it is for the Thermomix, but can easily be made in a mixer or by hand – I chill the mix in the fridge wrapping it in cling film in a fat sausage,
then slice into discs – cook for approx 10-12 minutes at 180.
Mine are quiet large, as they are for a ‘sandwich’ you can, of course make them smaller, just adjust the cooking time.
Once the cookies are cool, I take a big blob of Icecream and sandwich between 2 cookies – simple 😇
