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