One moist beef + dill sauce, please!

Beef is a meat supposed to melt in your mouth. And to double the flavor and “moistness” I did it with a twist. 😉

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
  • Butter
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • Salt, peeper
  • For the sauce: Dill – 1 piece | Olive oil – 1 spoon | Milk - 250 ml | Salt + Pepper

Kitchen instruments:

  • Grill
  • Wok
  • Small pot - for the sauce

How I did it:

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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. IMG_6789

Step 3

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. IMG_6790

Step 4

Check the beef Ok, the beef is sizzling, good. It smells beautiful. I check it and it’s just the way I want it. I wanted it moist and well done and that was the result. 1

Step 5

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. IMG_6796

Step 6

Check the veggies: Onion rocks. The veggies smell so good, I mixed again, tasted. A little bit of salt will do it.

Step 7

Plating I made a bed out of the vegetables and sliced the beef in 5-6 pieces. Added the beef on top of the veggie bed. Add sauce in a separate sauce bowl and there you have it... 2
