“Hunger is the best sauce in the world” – Cervantes
So many of you ask me for ideas for meals, so I thought the easiest thing to do would be to start my very own blog! So, here I am on a windy December Tuesday, pen in hand, writing the first one (feedback welcome BTW) and looking forward to sharing my recipe for my favourite Steak Sandwich.
Those of you who know about Scarlett & Mustard may know that I started the company three years ago after my son Ollie sold some bottles of Granny’s dressing on a table outside the house – and sold out. The idea was born …. and here I am. Good food is, frankly, an essential part of life, and any ideas to make it quick, easy, healthy and above all tasty is my reason for being!
“Good food is, frankly, an essential part of life…”
So make the most of the blog – it will include a range of meals to help you make weekday evenings less of a chore and should keep the family happy (most of the time).
Rosie’s Doo-Dah Sauce Juicy Steak Sandwich
Pour a good slug of Rosie’s Doo-Dah Sauce into a bowl and add the steaks (fillet tails work really well – cheap, tender and tasty), making sure they are well covered with the sauce. Leave to sit for an hour or so.
When ready, heat a little oil in a frying pan and when searing hot, add the steaks and cook to your liking; leave them to rest on a warm plate. Now lower the heat and add a few chopped shallots or onions to the pan and some halved cherry tomatoes and cook gently for a few minutes until soft and squidgy. Then pour the Doo-Dah marinade into the pan and let it all sizzle and bubble a little, adding in any juices which have come out of the resting steaks.
Cut the steak into good sized slices and serve on warm ciabatta bread with some lambs lettuce and the shallot marinade poured over. Season to taste, tuck in and enjoy the juices dripping down your chin!
