Recipe Tag

I've been tagged by the lovely Kat for this recipe tag which has been making its way around blogland.

The rules are:
  • Choose an ingredient from the taggers recipe and post a recipe using that ingredient on your blog, linking back to the taggers recipe.

  • Tag four people to do the same.

  • To keep it exciting please post within a week of being tagged
Kat posted a recipe for Meatballs and Rissoni using Beef stock, so that's the ingredient that I've chosen.

My recipe is for a super simple Braised Steak and Onions - an oldie but a goodie, especially on a chilly night. You can also substitute lamb chops for steak.

Braised Steak and Onions

Steak (I used Porterhouse but any type will do as braising will tenderise cheaper cuts)
Beef Stock
Gravy Mix

This quantities I'm using for this recipe make only a single serve, but just multiply the quantities to make larger amounts.

Step 1 - make gravy

Use a half and half mix of beef stock and water with the appropriate amount of gravy mix to make a nice rich gravy. For a single serve, I would make approximately 2 cups of gravy.

Step 2 - assemble ingredients

Slice up one small onion and lay the pieces in the bottom of a casserole dish.
Place a piece of steak on top.
Tip the gravy over the top.

Step 3 - cook

Place in the oven and cook long and slow - at least a couple of hours on approximately 150 degress celsius is best, but it depends on the type of steak that you use. The cheaper the cut, the longer you should cook it.

Step 4 - serve and eat

Serve with a nice creamy and peppery mashed potato on the side to soak up all of the lovely oniony gravy.
