Cheese Stuffed Steaks.

Hello everybody.

My husband bought some meat yesterday preparing for Ramadan coming in couple of weeks so as to avoid crowded roads and shops as usual,anyway I kept some fresh steaks to do today.

Well as I always say my number one application to look for new recipes or ideas is Pinterest, just love this it !

Found this super easy recipe, you simply stuff then roll steaks and grill them in some oil and butter. Stuffing was minced garlic, chopped onions and parsley, some pesto sauce and a hard sharp cheese with spices and salt of course.

Happens to be that my friend did the same but stuffing was shredded veggies, looks yummy as well.

Made mashed potatoes and a salad on the side plus a sauce made of balsamic vinegar,steak sauce,a bit of Worcestershire sauce and one teaspoon butter all boiled till it thickens

Veal with Mushroom Cream Sauce.

Hello everybody.

Back to normal routine after a long vacation, kids will want a good satisfying meal after school for sure.

My cousin posted this dish on my Facebook group last week and I promised to make it soon,though he made made it with chicken but today I used veal, but  same other ingredients.

Turned out absolutely delicious,only guilty thing is that recipe contains fresh cream and butter,won’t be the same without them, though tastes great but I always try to avoid these fatty ingredients as much as possible. Guess once in a while won’t hurt don’t you think ?

Ingredients and method:

* Veal steaks.

* Fresh cream.

* Mushrooms.

* salt,pepper,all spice,ginger,garlic powder and oregano for seasoning.

* 1 maggi cube.

* mozzarella cheese.

* vegetables : carrots,courgettes,cherry tomatoes,sweet peppers, broccoli,corn and potatoes.

 

* Season veal with all mentioned and leave for 1 hour.

* saute veal with some butter on both sides till almost done.

* remove to another pan then saute sliced mushrooms till tender.

* add fresh cream and maggi cube and leave to simmer 10  minutes then pour over veal and leave all to simmer on low heat or in the the oven till done.

* add mozzarella cheese on top to melt before serving.

* bake veggies with a drizzle of oil in the oven.

* bake foiled potatoes and serve it with sour cream on the side.

* steam broccoli florets then cover them directly with iced water so as to keep the green color.

I don’t like to brag but it really  looks and tastes better than any fine restaurant !!!!

hope you all try it,thank you Sa’ed for the recipe :)

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:)
