On 25th July 2015, This was Dinner…
We were supposed to be having my parents round for a barbecue but they had to cancel. It worked out quite well as I was at the hairdressers in the morning and was spreading myself a little thin. Also, not really BBQ weather.
Mr S met me after the hairdressers and he’d decided on steak and chips with a blue cheese sauce. Rather than deep fry the chips, we ovened them, far better for you and just has delicious.
- Get the (rump) steaks to room temp
- Cut some potatoes into chips
- Crumble some blue stilton
- Get cornmeal, plain flour, butter, oil, milk, sea salt & seasoning ready
- Preaheat the oven to 190ºc (fan)
Par boil the chips. Drain and leave to dry out a little.
Toss in oil, cornmeal & sea salt.
Lay out evenly on a baking tray and cook for about 25 minutes.
Heat the butter gently in a pan and add plain flour, stirring until combined. Remove from the heat and add a little milk at a time, stirring continuously. Be patient, this will ensure there are no lumps in your sauce.
When all the milk is added, season well and bring to the boil. Reduce and add the stilton.
Oil and season the steaks. Add to a preheated pan and cook to your preferred tastes.
I had some courgettes which were not going to last much longer so I roasted them too.
On Sunday we had Lisa’s chilli with Lisa’s flatbreads. There was a right pile of both.
