Post #Lent the #Beef #recipe creations were the first to come out! I felt like cooking up something English. British do enjoy their beef and potatoes and is so uniquely prepared as well. Perhaps they have left some flavours of their cuisine on our genetic taste buds before leaving India. We thoroughly enjoy beef and potatoes if cooked/baked or roasted well. It just leaves a sublime appealing flavour on the palatte.
To enjoy this recipe, do make sure you get a fresh and clean cut of tender beef from your local butcher otherwise you would find yourself chewing at the pieces all day long.
This can make for a good supper when you want to keep it light and/or free of carbs.
- 500 gms of beef, cleaned well and cut into 1" cubes
- 2 large potatoes, sliced thinly
- 4 cloves of garlic, crushed
- Drizzle of Worcestershire sauce
- Black Pepper powder - as required
- Salt to taste
- Rosemary - 2-3 sprigs
- Thyme leaves - 2 sprigs
- 1-2 small tomatoes, diced (optional)
- 1 tbsp Duck fat (optional, I had some duck fat from the duck roast that I strained and refrigerated. I will share the duck roast recipe soon.)
