Beef wellington

Saturday, December 30th, 2017 | Food

I tried my hand at a beef wellington. It looks more like a sausage roll, largely due to me using pre-cut fillet steak, rather than an entire fillet. At £30 a pop for one, I think I’ll live with the shape.

Spicy chicken marinade. This is a total winner. Make it in the morning and leave tour chicken to sit in it until dinner time. It is slightly spicy, but mild enough for pretty much everyone’s taste.


Red wine marinade. Great for red meat.

Thai beef

This is the Thai beef recipe from Le Cordon Bleu’s Complete Cooking Techniques. It’s pretty straight forward and not that tasty. I think I lost some of the flavour having to cook the meat to pregnancy-safe.

Making your own fried rice turns out to be very straightforward. Pre-cook some price, then stir-fry some vegetables and bean sprouts, add the rice, and finally crack an egg into the centre and mix it all up.

The courgette comes courtesy of my sister who has grown the biggest courgettes I have ever seen. They steam very well.
