I know, it has been a long time since I posted something, but I have been a way a lot. But as a first post in a while, this is a fantastic recipe. It’s from Jamie Oliver’s 15 minute meals. So super easy to make, but super delicious. Seriously, this is going to be an all time favourite of ours. Enjoy!
Jamie Oliver’s 15 minute meals: Grilled steak, ratatouille & saffron rice
1 small aubergine
2 mixed-colour peppers
1 red onion
1 heaped teaspoon harissa
2 anchovy fillets , from sustainable sources
2-4 cloves of garlic
700 g passata
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
½ a bunch of fresh basil
2 tablespoons fat-free natural yoghurt
1 mug (300g) of 10-minute wholegrain or basmati rice
1 good pinch of saffron
½ a lemon
2 x 250 g quality sirloin steaks , fat removed
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
½ a bunch of fresh flat-leaf parsley
1 heaped teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
½ a lemon
Ingredients out • Kettle boiled • Griddle pan, high heat • Small lidded pan, medium heat • Shallow lidded casserole pan, medium heat
Halve the courgette lengthways, slice the aubergine 1cm thick and place both on the griddle pan, turning when charred.
Put 1 mug of rice, 2 mugs of boiling water, the saffron, lemon half and a pinch of sea salt into the small pan, cover and cook until fluffy, stirring occasionally.
Tear the seeds and stalks out of the peppers, peel the onion, then roughly chop both and put into the casserole pan with the harissa, anchovies and 1 teaspoon of their oil.
Squash in the unpeeled garlic through a garlic crusher and stir regularly.
Remove the charred courgette and aubergine from the griddle pan, leaving it on the heat, and roughly chop them on a board.
Add them to the casserole pan along with the passata and vinegar, and boil with the lid on.
Rub the steaks with salt, the paprika and 1 teaspoon of olive oil and place on the hot griddle pan, turning every minute until cooked to your liking.
On a board, finely slice the parsley stalks and roughly chop the leaves.
Add the mustard and 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, season with salt and black pepper and squeeze over the lemon juice, then mix together and spread over the board.
When the steaks are done, transfer them to the board, turn in the dressing, then slice.
Tear the top leafy half of the basil into the ratatouille, season to taste, and serve with yoghurt and saffron rice.
