Beef Brochettes


My husband is not a fan of many meats so it can be a challenge to cook him dinner. One of my favorite thing to eat is lamb but because he just hate that, it is not something I fix very often. This week, I thought I would fix those wonderful kebab for me and fix the same for him but with beef. He loved them!!! So here they are. I hope that you will try to fix them because there are so easy to make and they cook in a flash. The great part, you can actually season them however you feel like it;-)

Ingredients for about 12-15 brochettes:

  • 1 lb of ground beef
  • 1 small onion grated
  • 2 cloves of garlic pressed
  • 2 tbsp of fresh parsley
  • 1 tbsp of thyme, rosemary demarle herb blend from Demarle
  •  1/2 tsp of salt
  • 1/4 tsp of cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp of pepper
  1. With a grater, grate the onion into a bowl.image
  2. Add all the other ingredients.image
  3. And mix well either in a kitchen mixer or using your own hands.image
  4. Scoop a bit of the mixture with your fingers that is about 2 tbsp in size and make an inch long brochette.image
  5. Place a wood stick in the center of the meat and place it on the large silpat, or even the grande flexipan that you would have placed on a large perforated sheet.image
  6. Cook the brochette for 15 minutes at 400.image
  7. Eat as they are, or with a sauce of your choice.image

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!

Steamed New Potatoes with Herb Butter

Being married to a German man can be quite a challenge?!?! Why because it is harder and harder to think of new ways to fix potatoes. Luckily today as I went to pick up those sirloin patties, I saw those new potatoes. New potatoes are so tasty on their own. There is really nothing you need to do beside steaming them and adding fresh herbs and butter…

Ingredients: 1 bag of new potatoes ( preferably white, they cook quicker than the red one and or the purple one and when you are in a hurry, it is what you need…), 1 tbsp of butter melted, 1/8 tsp of salt, 1 dash of fresh pepper, 1 tsp of chopped parsley.

Place the new potatoes in the round mold, add 1 tbsp of water and 1/8 tsp of salt. Place the octogonal silpat on the round mold, and cook them for 8-9 minutes in the microwave. Remove the potatoes from the round mold, peel the skin off, add the melted butter, the chopped parsley, the pepper and stir well. Add salt if needed. Et voila!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
