The last summer continued… meals fit for a king (Baby King George in particular)

Standard

If I had to choose a final dish before I croaked I definitely would have some salad on my plate. But with my sister’s plethora of meals, it would be hard to choose what would cover the rest of the plate. But salad, yes. That is a certainty. Like death and taxes perhaps!?

Baby Sister’s Steak Salad

IMG_1009

for the salad
sirloin steak (sliced),
new potatoes (or some from your growbag?),
vine tomatoes (if your greenhouse doesn’t grow them fast enough, Waitrose will absolutely suffice),
frisee salad (supplement with leaves from the garden),
mixed funky mushrooms,
red onions

and for the dressing
wholegrain mustard (1/2 tsp),
generous sprinkling of pepper,
chopped basil,
olive oil,
lemon juice,
hazelnut oil
and red wine vinegar (liquid proportions to taste)

Boil the halved new potatoes. Fry the sirloin steak in a frying pan and then add chopped red onions before compiling the salad.

Mix the frisee salad, boiled new potatoes, special yummy mushrooms, and chopped tomatoes then let it sit while you make the dressing. After adding a little of this and a little of that (she does it by eye so you try that too OK?) pour over salad and shuffle and turn everything around with your hands. As long as they are clean of course.

Separate out into generous helpings for each of your family members and friends and load the top with the sirloin steak/red onion combo.

Serve with a smile. Licking the plate is optional.
