Recipe Of The week-Steaky!Steaky!

One of our favourite foods on the dinner table is a juicy pepper steak with black pepper sauce, sauted veggies and baked potatoes

Today will share how I cook it(its a mix of 2-3 recipes, because I usually make slight changes in it according to my taste-you can also do the same)-its an easy peasy, quick steak for busy moms like me. I have used the quick sauce here will blog about the long basic recipe some other time too :)

Pepper Steak with sauted veggies & baked potato wedges

The pepper steak sauce I use & love.

The Recipe:

(this recipe cooks for two)

Ingredients: marinade for steak:
2 beef steaks fillets
Ketchup 1/2 cup
Soy sauce 2 tpsp
Lemon juice/vinegar 1 tbsp
salt & black pepper 1 tsp
mustard 1 tsp
ginger paste 1 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp

For Baked potatoes:
(use as needed)
(and cheese if you like)

For Sauted vegatables:
1 can mushrooms
1 bell pepper diced
1 onion diced
corn & carrots (if you like)


Hammer the beef fillet with a steak hammer and marinate in the marination for 2-4 hours (the more, the better)

Meanwhile cut potatoes in wedges or thick slices, grease a baking dish & add spices to the wedges and bake for 25-35 mins (you can check every 15 mins) at 200 degrees C-cover the dish with foil.

Saute the veggies in butter or olive oil for few minutes.

After the beef is marinated well (2-4 hours) heat a grill pan (preferrably) or a simple pan and add 2-3 tbsp oil. Cook the steaks at very low heat with the lid on. Dont let it overcook & dry out but dont let it be undercooked & raw.

The beef takes minimum 30 mins to cook depending upon the marination and the beef type.

Once done turn the heat high for few minutes to get that grilled look.

Serve hot with this bottled blackpepper sauce or a homemade sauce on top of the steak, with wedges & sauted veggies.

(End Notes)-

*You can add a cheese slice on top of the already baked potato wedges and closed the foil again the cheese will melt in seconds. I used Almarai (cheese slices)

*Got the beef fillets from Tamimi

*The pepper steak sauce is from Danube-Hayat Mall

*You can add or subtract stuff as you like & according to your own taste.

Bon Appetit! :)

My Favourite Hot Spot Of The Week-Maya La Chocolaterie

"Chocolate is the only aromatherapy I need."

Chocolate Brownie with vanilla icecream

Cinnamon Rolls

Chocolate Fondant

Chocolate...Oh yes! Who can say no? Especially if you share it with a bunch of friends and few good laughs! Over a cup of hot chocolate, or fondue, caramel drizzled, chewy, fudgdy brownies & a scoop of vanilla icecream....ahhh heaven! And of all these places I love going to, for my (now & then) 'aromatherapy' is Maya, its a lovely cosy joint for all chocolate lovers. Must try...quite rushy on weekends.

For all Riyadh,KSA foodies with a sweet tooth this is a must go place :)
