Mozzarella Steak with sauce and spicy potatoes.

Story

Cover your steaks with cheese? What could go wrong there? It’s a delicious and easy dish for you to recreate and make for someone you appreciate a little more. The entire dish comes well together with the juicy steaks, rich cheese, spicy potatoes, and pepper sauce. I add my raspberry onions for a little sweet to accomplish the rest of the flavors. Together they all blend just incredible. I love using tenderloin here, but honestly, you could use sirloin or a less tender steak if that is what you have.

Measurements and Ingredients

Measurements

150-200 gram pieces of tenderloin steak. (per person)
One slice of fresh mozzarella cheese
150 grams of butter
Olive oil
One purple carrot
Fresh Basil

(see receipes below)

Pepper Sauce
Raspberry Onions

Baking time: 25-40 minutes

Directions

Take steaks out of the cool storage and let them air and become room tempered.
Season the steaks with ground pepper and salt
Make raspberry onions, set to simmer while you make the rest.
Start by making Spicy Potatoes. Turn your baking oven to 225oC first.
Add a tablespoon of olive oil and 100 grams of butter to a frying pan. Heat to a maximum.
Add steaks into the pan, Depending on how rare you want them; they should cook for 30 seconds to 2 minutes on each side. Use a tablespoon to add the melted butter over the steaks while they sear. This way you shouldn’t have to sear the sides of the steak, but check to make sure the entire steak is seared.
Take potatoes out of the oven, add steaks on top of the potatoes. Also, add a slice of mozzarella on each steak, and you could decorate with a shredded purple carrot.
Add the baking casserole back into the oven. Steaks should only be baking for 10 minutes. Rest them until serving.
Make pepper sauce, and plate everything up.

I keep the jar of raspberry onions on the serving table. My guests always want more.

Lemon and Lime Mousse

Story

It’s very similar to the Lemon mousse, but I’ve added lime. Gives it that sweet sourness. It’s a little different and maybe a right way to add another taste experience to a tasty dessert. It goes well after a pepper flavored dark meat meal. It will balance well in your mouth.

Measurements and Ingredients

Measurements

300 ml. heavy cream
50 grams of refined sugar
Two eggs (separate yolks from whites)
125 grams of refined sugar
One lemon
One lime
Five gelatin plates
50 ml. boiling hot water

Addition Information

Servings: 6 pieces

Preparation time: 10 minutes
It should cool for 2-3 hours.

Total time: 3 Hours

Directions

Start by adding heavy cream to a mixer bowl
Add 50g sugar to the heavy cream
Start the mixer but pay attention. You want to stop when it’s got a smooth texture
Leave in fridge until we use it later
Separate egg yolks from whites
Measure up sugar in a mixing bowl.
Add lemon and lime juice, egg yolks and lemon zest and mix it.
Soak gelatin plates in cold water for 5 minutes. Remember to squeeze water out of them after.
Bring 0.5 dl. water to a boil. Turn off heat and add in gelatin plates. Mix gelatin with the water.
Add this to the egg and sugar mixture.
Add the smooth whipped cream, and egg whites.
Finish by mixing everything for 1 minutes.
Cover the bowl with plastic. Cool in fridge.
I like to add mixture to dessert glasses before cooling it. Making it ready to serve.

Lemon Mousse

Story

Since I was little, I’ve been told stories about my father eating this dessert with a very special spoon. The smallest and tiniest salt spoon they had. He wanted the dessert to last as long as possible. Between Christmas and New Year’s Day, my father knows that my mother will make this dessert. Of course, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and the rest of the family makes sure to be seated at the dining table. We all love to eat it and tease dad about his history with lemon mousse. It’s really simple to make it. Now this recipe is a step up from my moms recipe

For Love’s Steak by Chefnorway

Slider with alias "for-loves-steak" not found.

Story

I love steak. And a good steak! That’s why I’ve landed on this recipe for one of my favorite steak recipes. Steak and potatoes, with raspberry onions and a freshly made pepper sauce, will give this recipe the high-end taste that you should serve that special one you love! A Good steak starts with high quality and tender piece of meat. A “Beef Filet Mignon” is what you need. It’s a little bit more expensive but will melt on your tongue. Remember you can’t make just “Steak and Taters” the whole recipe comes together with the pepper sauce and the raspberry onions.

Raspberry Onions is a must have when I serve the love of my life. They are sweet and give the steak extra color and taste that blends perfectly with the peppery flavor of the sauce. It’s straightforward and you can freeze whatever you have left, and just heat up next time you make this meal.

There’s no steak dinner without a strong pepper sauce. You need meat to make a good pepper sauce. The tastes you get from the fried meat in the pan will bring an extra flavor to top this recipe. This sauce goes perfectly along with the steak.
