Recipe for Kadaif Beef Nests

A very easy recipe and looks very impressive as well.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Package of ready to go Kadaif dough
  • 1\2 kilo ground beef
  • 3 tsp pine nuts
  • 1 onion diced
  • 3 dates diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic crushed
  • 3 tsp Ras al Hanut
  • Chopped coriander for garnish
  • Salt & Pepper

Recipe:

  1. Take the ready-made kadaif dough and place in cupcake tin and create a pocket for the beef filling, spray the tin with oil. Turn your oven on 180c and bake the dough until firm and golden brown.
  2. For the beef filling: Saute the onions until translucent. Add the garlic and saute for 1 more minute. Add ground beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until it’s broken down and nice and brown.
  3. Drain the excess liquid from the ground beef and add the ras al hanut and dates.
  4. In a different pan toast the pine nuts until they have a smokey essence.
  5. Combine all the ingredients together and garnish with fresh coriander.

Serve with a nice yellow tahini sauce or a tomato chutney.

Enjoy!

Steak Marinade

marinating-the-steak

Most people who love steak have a debate on how to season and prepare it. Do you marinate or just salt and pepper?  In a cast iron skillet and finished in the oven or on the grill and well rested.

Anyway because I love steak so mush, I do it both ways!

So here is my steak marinade recipe for 1 kilo of steaks:

  • 4 tbls canola oil
  • 3 tbls Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 onion diced finely
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp chopped rosemary

Mix well and let the steak marinade for minimum 4 hours up to 24.

Before cooking, take out the steak and clean it of from the excess pieces(the garlic and onion) and let the meat reach up to room temp before preparing. why you ask? Find out on my next blog post.
