Beef is a tricky meat. Because you either nail ( it results a moist piece of meat) it or you make it dry in the end. And, trust me, you want to nail it or it’s going to be a mess.
Here are the ingredients:
- Beef meat – 150, 200 gr
- Vegetables – anything you like, it will work
- Onion – a must
- Herbs – parsley, rosemary and the list can go on 😉
- Flour – 1 table spoon
- Balsamic vinegar
- Salt, peeper
- For the sauce: Dill – 1 piece | Olive oil – 1 spoon | Milk - 250 ml | Salt + Pepper
- Small pot - for the sauce
How I did it:
The beef: Take the piece of beef and make a gentle crust on it so that it gets moist in the inside while cooking it. Season it on both sides with salt, pepper, herbs (if you like). TIP: If you are cooking a bigger piece of beef you should consider marinating it in oil, vinegar, rosemary, basil. You can even ad something acid such as white wine. And let it rest for 24 h. You will nail the flavor and the texture and you’ll nail this meat.
Cooking beef with a twist(1): I added a piece of butter in the grill (you can always use olive oil) but the butter makes this protein so gorgeous in flavor, texture, taste and smell. Because I did not marinated it but I still wanted to get that moistness out of it, I choose to cook it in butter. The grill must start sizzle, that is music to my ears. I let it a bit more and then turn it on the side as well until that sizzles starts again.
The vegetables: I choose onion, mushrooms, beans, carrot, red & orange pepper. Chop the red & orange peppers and the carrots julienne style and the onion in cubic pieces. I sated the onion first in olive oil until it catched that golden color and then added the rest of the vegetables in the wok. I added salt, pepper, parsley and a little bit of balsamic vinegar. For the flavor.
The sauce (the 2nd twist): I washed the dill and chopped it in very small piece. I put the dill in a pot where I had a fiery spoon of olive oil. I then added the flour and I continued mixing so that it doesn’t get any lumps. In the composition I added milk so that it binds up, and then added te dill and mix all together. If the sauce is too thick, you can add more milk. Added salt, never to forget. And in the end I let the sauce boil for 10 minutes.
Check the veggies: Onion rocks. The veggies smell so good, I mixed again, tasted. A little bit of salt will do it.
