Just to prove that meals can be simple and easy to do we have decided to show you what we cooked up on the weekend. Both these dishes were spur of the moment ideas. Unfortunately the beef dish we actually forgot to take a picture when it was cooked and on the plate. The chicken dish will be up on Simply Delish this Saturday.
Beef kind of Wellington.:-
1 large steak (we used scotch fillet)
Cheese (any type you like)
Spring onion (optional)
4 strips of streaky bacon. (optional and any other bacon relation will do.)
1 sheet of puff pastry (I like puff pastry)
1 egg wash (beat an egg and turf in a dash of milk.)
Bash the hell out of the steak. (He means flatten steak out with a tenderiser, try not to make any holes in the meat.)
Place a few slices of cheese on to the meat with the sliced spring onion and add a good dose of spices. (He means season to taste.)
|Plastic stuff wrapped round tightly|
Lay out some glad wrap or whatever you call it.
Place rolled steak on glad wrap and wrap it around the steak. Take hold of each end of the wrap and spin the think to tighten further. (You could get someone to grab one end while you twist the other.)
|Steak stuffed in pastry|
Cut off excess pastry and pinch to seal meat in pastry.
Egg wash all over.
Place on a oiled baking tray or use baking paper.
Place in oven that was preheated to 180c (Don't know the other temp in fahrenheit)
Cook until pastry is golden brown.
Serve with whatever take your fancy.
We had potatoes par boiled and fried up with garlic and onion pieces.
Oh and don't forget gravy..........if you like.
Enjoy we did.
