Veggie Stuffed Steaks.


Happy International Woman’s Day lovely ladies around the world.

I’m sure all women wherever they are and whatever they do deserve to honored and thanked everyday cause each one is important and plays a significant role no matter how small.

On this occasion I cooked this elegant lunch today, steaks stuffed with thinly stripes of veggies ( carrots, onions, peppers and green onions) with sauce and mashed potatoes.

* season steaks with salt, pepper and all spice then add the vegetables, roll and close them with toothpicks.

* add a bit of soy sauce on top of each roll
* heat some oil and butter well, add rolls till golden on all sides, lower heat and leave to cook slowly for 15-20 minutes.

* remove from pan and leave to rest
* in the same oil add remaining veggies, saute till golden then add one tablespoon of flour and 1 1/2 cups water.

French Pizza.

Hello everybody.

Lunch today was steak with mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes, though potatoes weren’t successful cause I cut them to cubes then boiled them till done ( I usually keep it as is)  so mash was runny  didn’t like it at all, never again.Thank God steaks were excellent.

On the side I made my famous French Pizza, always a favorite side dish at any meal or occasion,very simple and easy.
Chopped peppers, mushroom, olives with some cheese, mayonnaise, salt and pepper mixed then topped over sliced French baguettes.

Cherry Berry Mousse.

Hello everybody.

Gloomy cold day,I hate this weather when no sun appears,went shopping to lighten up but unfortunately though most shops have sale but I wasn’t lucky at all :)

Anyway since I was out all morning I was planning to fry some ready chicken escalopes,I boiled some potatoes before I left to make mashed potatoes. God bless Nabil products as I always say.

I rushed to grocery store on my way back to bring some extra chicken and fresh rocca to make a salad cause my son called saying his friend is coming to lunch,as I entered I couldn’t resist the fresh berries,cherries and strawberries on the fruit stand,so I got a good amount to make this recipe,refreshing and yummy, I’m sure kids and adults will love it.

Ingredients and method:

* 1 pack cream cheese.

* 2 packs whipping cream.

* 1 pack cream.

* 3 packs strawberry and cherry jello plus 1 for the top.

* 1 cup milk

*3/4 cups hot water.

* 2 cups fresh berries.

* mix all ingredients with only 1/2 cup of berries very well in food processor.

* pour in a deep serving dish then dip in some big chunks of berries.

* refrigerate till firm then decorate top with rest of cherries and berries.

* dissolve the remaining jello pack in 1 cup very hot water then cover berries with it slowly.

* refrigerate for 2-3 hours then serve.

Haven’t tasted yet but it sure looks pretty good,enjoy your weekend my friends.

Steak & Mashed Potatoes.

Hello everybody.
I bought fresh green fava beans yesterday, intended to cook them with yoghurt and steaks but the kids  strongly objected. I guess most kids don’t like fava beans..I actually didn’t like them when I was young but now they’re my favorite in all forms and recipies..I guess will keep them for one day when kids are out, a Thursday or Friday maybe.
Well I made steaks with mushroom and sauce and mashed potatoes on the side and a salad.

Ingredients and method:
* Veal steaks.
* 1 can or fresh mushrooms.
* sliced onions.
* 2-3 cloves garlic.
* sliced peppers.
* salt, pepper, all spice.
* 1 big spoon cornflour.
* 1 small spoon of ketchup, HP or BBQ sauce.
* 1 cube maggi  or half a packet of mushroom soup ( the powder I mean).
* 1 spoon oil and small spoon butter.

* Heat oil and butter, add the steaks and keep turning them till all water is dry and steaks partially cooked.
* Add the onions and garlic, cover and leave on low heat till a bit tender.
* Add the peppers and mushrooms.
* mix spices, sauces, maggi and cornflour with 2 cups water and pour them over steak .
* leave to simmer on low heat for 1 hour or till steaks are done.
* serve with mashed potatoes done by boiling potatoes till soft then mixing it with some butter , milk, salt and pepper in food processor.
* I made a simple salad and added 4 slices of the roasted peppers from the other day…yummy:)
