Fillet steak with celeriac and apple sauce

fillet steak apple sauce

Our first recipe for you to try is the fillet steak with herb crust and celeriac and apple sauce, a quick tip before we begin, shred your apple and celeriac first for easier preparation.

What you’ll need . . .

3 or 4 fresh fillet steak pieces ( 6 ounce pieces are best)

1 frying pan with 2 table spoons of olive oil on a medium heat

Your hand blender with chopping bowl ready to go

space

For the herb crust paste you’ll need . . . 

4 slices of slightly stale bread which will be made into your crumbs

30 grams of grated parmesan cheese

One 3 inch long piece of parsley

A little bit of basil and rosemary

2 table spoons of grain mustard

1 table spoon of olive oil

space

For the apple and celeriac sauce you’ll need . . . 

Just over 200 grams of celeriac (shredded)

A splash of lemon juice (optional)

4 table spoons of mayonnaise in a bowl

1 teaspoon of course grain mustard

1 fresh apple, cored and shredded

2 table spoons of chopped parsley, some salt & pepper

space

The process . . .

First turn the heat onto gas mark 4 under your frying pan and olive oil, then take your 6 ounce piece of fillet steak and sprinkle salt and pepper on both sides for seasoning.

Next place the fillet steak into your heated frying pan, it should be cooked for 4 minutes in the pan and turned to brown all over.

While that’s cooking you can prepare the herb crust paste by adding all of its ingredients into your hand blenders chopping bowl, and pulse chop it 5 or 6 times until it becomes a green paste.

When it’s done it should be nice and moist thanks to the olive oil, this makes it easy to spread onto your fillet and it will get crispy in the oven.

By this time your fillet steak should have been cooked in the frying pan for roughly 2 minutes on each side and will be brown and crisp all over, so you can now spread a table spoon of your herb crust paste on top of the fillet and cook it in the oven for another 6 minutes at 190 C (gas mark 5).

In the meantime . . . 

Now while that cooks in the oven you can make the celeriac and apple sauce. First add your 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise to a bowl, then shred your 200 grams of celeriac, if you have a hand blender with a shredder attachment like the Braun Multi Quick MR550 this parts easier, but if you don’t you can easily shred it by hand with a chopping board and a sharp knife. Next shred your pieces of apple.

Now spoon your shredded celeriac and apple into the bowl with the mayonnaise, add in your teaspoon of coarse grain mustard, your 2 table spoons of chopped parsley, a drop of lemon juice and give it a good stir to bring it all together.

By now your fillet steak piece (or pieces) will be ready to leave the oven and you can serve with the celeriac and apple sauce on the side.

Easy chocolate brownie recipe

As the title suggests this one is very easy to put together and all you need to make it at home is your hand blender with its chopping bowl attachment and your ingredients laid out in small bowls ready to go.

The ingredients list . . .

7 ounces of butter

7 ounces of your choice of chocolate, broken into pieces for melting

Just over 8 ounces of brown sugar

1.5 ounces of your favourite chopped nuts

3 ounces of sifted cocoa powder

2.5 ounces of sifted plain flour

4 large eggs

A teaspoon of baking powder

A 7 inch deep square baking tin

space

The process . . .

Crack and remove your 4 eggs from their shells and have them sitting in a bowl ready for mixing, also have your other ingredients in bowls so they are quick to hand when you need them.

Pre-heat your oven to gas mark 5, and line your 7 inch deep baking tin with no-stick baking paper.

Drop the butter and chocolate into a bowl and melt and stir them together using a low heat pan of steaming water beneath the bowl like this . . .

While that melts slowly you can add your eggs and brown sugar to your hand blenders chopping bowl and begin to mix it together.

If your chopping bowl doesn’t have a stirring style blade you can just use your hand blenders whisk attachment with the ingredients in a large bowl for this step.

Now that your eggs and brown sugar are starting to mix together you can add in your flour, chopped nuts, the teaspoon of baking powder and the sifted cocoa powder. Give it all another mix until its nice and smooth.

By now your chocolate pieces and butter should be nicely melted so its time to give it one last stir and pour it in with your other ingredients, and, now that everything is together give it a last good blending until you are happy with the consistency.

Lastly just pour your brownie ingredients into the square baking tin, place into your pre-heated oven and bake for thirty minutes. Be sure not to bake longer because your brownie will dry out, it’s as easy as that.

 

 

 

 


Simple & delicious scrambled eggs

scrambled eggs picture

Today I’m going to tell you how to cook perfect scrambled eggs, but first let’s take a look at what you’ll need before we start.

1 – A non stick frying pan
2 – A few square cubes of butter for frying with
3 – Your hand blender with the whisk attachment
4 – Three eggs (whites & yolks) de-shelled in a bowl
5 – Roughly a tablespoon of salt, natural rock or sea salt is best
6 – A standard sized coffee mug half filled with cream (optional)
7 – A flat headed wooden spoon

To prepare simply . . .

Ok first pour some of the cream from the coffee mug in with your three eggs, roughly 1 and a 1/2 ounces works best but you can judge this part by eye.

 

Next turn the heat on under your non stick frying pan to gas mark 4 (180 degrees C) and drop 2 of your cubes of butter into the pan which will begin to melt slowly.

 

While that’s melting take your hand blender with the whisk attachment fitted and whisk the eggs and cream together on a medium speed, this part can be done by hand with a fork if your hand blender doesn’t have a whisk attachment.

 

Your 2 cubes of butter should be melting and spreading out nicely in the pan by now so sprinkle some of your salt into the pan, this will give the eggs an extra boost of flavour as they cook.

 

When the butter starts to sizzle you can pour your whisked eggs into the pan, have your flat headed wooden spoon ready but resist stirring for about the first 30 seconds. This allows your eggs to heat up and begin to cook nicely.

 

Now you can begin to gently stir and move your eggs around the pan, as you move the cooked pieces of egg the raw pieces will take its place and become cooked to. At this point you can grate a little bit of your favourite cheese on top of the cooking eggs (optional).

 

And just keep stirring until there’s absolutely no raw eggs left in the pan and the entire mix is well cooked and scrambled, and that’s it done, easy and perfect scrambled eggs.

The best pancakes

pancakes picture

It isn’t hard to use your hand blenders whisk attachment to make your own american style, great tasting and fluffy pancakes at home, keep reading to find out how to . . .

What you’ll need . . . 

Your hand blender plugged in and ready to go with its whisk attachment clipped on

A large mixing bowl

Four ounces of sifted plain flour

Seven ounces (200 millilitres) of milk, stirred together with three ounces (75 millilitres) of water

Two eggs

Two ounces of butter

A small sprinkle of salt (optional)

Two table spoons of sugar, or less depending on your sweet tooth

space

The best way to make them . . .

Take your large mixing bowl and use a sieve to sift your 4 ounces of flour into it, then sprinkle in a little salt (never more than half a teaspoon).

With your fingers create a small well in the middle of the flour, crack open both eggs and drop them into it.

Now take your hand blender and whisk it all together, starting on a low speed and getting faster as it begins to smooth out.

Next take your stirred together milk and water and pour a little bit at a time into the whisked ingredients, keep whisking as you do this and of course keep adding until all the milk and water is added.

At this point you might need to use a wooden spoon to pull any un-whisked ingredients into the centre and just re-whisk for 30 seconds until it’s all smooth. Add in your table spoons of sugar now if you’ve decided to make sweet pancakes.

Next take a frying pan and melt your 2 ounces of butter on a low heat, once it melts add 2 table spoons of it into your pancake batter and give it one last whisking.

Now you can raise the heat under your frying pan to medium, drain away any excess melted butter, but obviously keep some sizzling in there for cooking the pancakes.

Ok, so now you’re ready to make the first pancake. Spoon roughly 2 table spoons worth of batter into the frying pan, and, if you have a large soup ladle use it for this step so you’re adding the batter to the pan all at once.

Once your batter is in gently tilt the frying pan from left to right to spread it out a bit, and after about 40 seconds of cooking on one side use a knife to lift the pancake, if the under side has turned a dark brownish gold colour you can flip it and cook the other side.

The other side probably won’t need a full 40 seconds to cook, when it is done remove from the pan, it’s as easy as that.

Depending on the size of your frying pan and how big you want the pancakes to be you can adjust as needed.
