Walsingham Posted August 17, 2009 Share Posted August 17, 2009 Since we had some comments in the daily activity thread I thought i'd set another one of these up. My mum being at death's door means we've been allowed to take her off her special ultra-goody-two-shoes diet. My sister and I both cooked. My favourite has to be the steak I did. It's a heavy adaptation of a recipe I read. Take a fillet steak and coat it thickly in a mixture of powdered coriander seed, black pepper, and salt. Leave to one side so the coating dries out and seals the surface. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan mix together equal quantities of soy sauce and honey. I used bloody expensive aromatic honey. Warm this through so the honey melts. Add a few barberries (they're very high in vitamin C), bruised and chopped lemon grass, and some crushed garlic. Once the flavours are mixing, pour a little over your steak to help the marinade. Now turn up the heat on the sauce, so it froths and caramelises, and goes a bit burnt. Once it's nice and thick, seive out any lumpy bits of stuff and save as sauce for the steak (or anything else, for that matter). If you're too chicken to eat the steak raw with this sauce then fry it no more than medium rare and eat with gusto. Would work with a hearty south american red wine or a really cold lager.
