Tuesday roasted pork steaks with vegetables

I’ve been super busy with work this last week and finaly I have time to post my latest cooking atempt. It’s my first try with pork steaks and they were divine. Not that I’m bragging 🙂

They took more time than I’m used to when I’m cooking, but they were totaly worth it. 

Fisrt I seasoned the staeks with soy sauce, honey, mustard, freshly cracked pepper, salt, barbeque sauce and garlic and left them in the fridge for 2,5 hours to marinate. After that I peeled the potatoes and carrots and cut them in big pieces. I sliced the mushrooms, the onion and the garlic. Then I spred some oil on a large pan and put the vegetables and the steaks in it. I poured in water and beer, covered it with tin foil and put it in a preheated to 180C oven.

I checked it every 20 minutes and turned the meat to make sure it will be evenly roasted. After 1h 40min the meat and the vegetables were cooked very well so I removed the foil to get a good browning of the meat and left it for 20 more minutes.

And that was it – 2 hours and 4 delicious steaks. Bon apetit!

Chicken with vegetable mix

It’s one of my own recipes. It’s nothing intricate or super special but it’s very tasty and, as most of the times, the key is in the spices.

I cut the fillets to small bites and season them with soy sauce, white, red and black cracked pepper and salt. Then I cook them on a skillet with melted butter for about 15 min. I turn them often so they’re evenly cooked.

I leave it out of the fridge while I’m making the chicken and it’s ready for cooking when I’m done. I melt butter on a large skillet, put in the veggie mix, add soy sauce, salt, white, red and black cracked pepper and sugar. I stir for 10 min and that’s it. Easy and yummy.

ImageIngredients

  • Image400-500gr chicken fillet
  • 400gr vegetable mix
  • 10gr butter
  • 30ml soy sauce
  • 3-4 tablespoons sugar
  • white, red and black cracked pepper
  • salt

 

Four cheese chicken

I found a great looking chicken parmesan  recipe on the Internet last week so I decided it’s time to try it. Then I started pulling stuff out of the fridge, and like most of the things I cook, it was clear that I won’t follow the recipe and would have to cross my fingers till the first bite.

First off, I preheated the oven to 200 degrees, I put the chicken breasts in a baking sheet and seasoned them with olive oil, salt, cracked pepper, garlic and white wine.

DSCN2209I baked them for 10-15min and when I got them out of the oven I covered them with pesto, tomato sauce, grated mozzarella, grated parmesan and croutons with a small amount of butter on top.

DSCN2212I baked the whole thing for 5 min so the croutons would get golden brown. Then I put another layer of tomato sauce and added mozzarella, parmesan, cheddar, Bulgarian yellow cheese and basil.

DSCN2220The result was a tasty homemade dish that got even Martin full, which is a rare sight since he has something like nine stomachs 🙂
