This week I thought I’d share my favourite way to cook steaks. Despite the fact that I do marinate the steaks, you don’t have to do any prep work the day before or even a few hours before. You can leave the steak marinating while you prepare the rest of your meal, it only needs about 20-30 minutes.

Since this recipe describes the process per-steak, it’ll yield as many steaks as you make 🙂 As for ingredients, the amounts will vary depending on the size and number of steaks you do, but you’ll need the following:

  • The steaks of your choice (I love Strip Loin)
  • A few cloves of Garlic
  • Lemon Juice
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Olive & Vegetable Oil
  • Fresh or Dried Rosemary
  • Freshly ground Black Pepper & Salt

My Bolognese Recipe

Filed Under Cooking & Food on January 5, 2011 | 3 Comments

BologeseThis is a recipe I learned from my mother, and then improved on, and now she does Bolognese my way! Sharing at it’s best 🙂

Anyhow, since this is a more complex recipe, I thought I’d start with an ingredient list this time:

  • 4 red onions
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1½ to 2 red bell peppers (can use other colours of you prefer)
  • 2 400g tins of chopped tomatoes (I like to use organic)
  • 500g of minced beef
  • ½ a tube of tomato puree (which is about 70g)
  • pasta of your choice (I use Gluten Free pasta from the Tesco Free From range)
  • A good selection of dried herbs, and fresh Basil and Parsley if possible

This recipe will make 4 generous portions.
