Tomato Beef Stew 番茄炖牛肉

This dish will take over one hour.

Cut beef into medium cubes.

Put beef cubes in the pan with cold water and turn on the stove.

When the water gets boiled, there will be a lot foam.

Take beef cubes out and clean them.

Heat the oil in the pan, put in ginger slices and some garlic slices.

Add in beef cubes. And stir fry for a while.

Then put in a little cooking wine and light soy sauce. Stir evenly.

Add in enough hot water over the beef. Then cover the pan with lid and cook for at least 40 mins.

Three tomatoes need to be peeled off. First cut a cross at the bottom. Then put them in hot water for around 1 minute. Lastly, remove them into cold water. And it will be easy to peel them off.

Chop them into small bits.

Use another pan. Heat the oil and put the tomato bits in.

When the tomato juice comes out, pour in a bowl of water. 

Keep stirring till the tomato sauce becomes a little condensed.

When 40mins is over, add tomato sauce into the beef along with several sugar cubes and some salt.

Cook for another 30 mins.

If you don’t feel like eating anything, this dish will make your appetite better.


How to cook Beef (pork) Wellington at home

My husband wanted to have beef steak, but we didn’t  have any at home. So I cooked Pork Wellington using the recipe of Beef Wellington. 

The result was surprisingly good. Pork tested very tender and juicy.

The following is an easy way to cook pork in this way:

1. Season the pork with salt and black pepper.

2. Since the thick steak tests better, I used kitchen twine.

3. Heat some butter in a pan.

4. Put the pork in when the butter is heated. And fry every side of the pork.

5. Frying is done.

6. Stir fry chopped onion, mushroom, and garlic. Add some salt and black pepper powder. ( I don’t have other spices or wine.)

7. Bacon at the bottom, mixture of mushroom and onion in the middle, pork on the top. Do remember to take the kitchen twine off.  

8. Roll the pork with bacon and make it a small bun. Wrap it tight and put into fridge for 30 minutes.

9. As to puff pastry, I chose roti prata, which is an easy and quick way.

10. Wrap the pork with roti prata.

11. Put it into fridge for another ten minutes.

12. Preheat oven 200 degree. You can make some decorative pattern on the surface if you want. Then brush it with egg. Put into oven for 20-25 minutes.

13. Dress the dish with some vegetables.
Enjoy your meal!
