Chicken with roasted capsicum puree on a bed of enoki mushroom with bouquet of roasted aubergine couscous

June 17, 2011

                       Waaaa…when was the last time i really cook and take pic ah..hmm.looking back at my previous post..was somewhere in January?..haih…but anyway..i’m back now la..(don’t worry i got a few more dishes (yes..a few more)..to showcase la..so stay tune okie? Heeee.

The idea for this dish came from 2 source. The first is, during our anniversary dinner with my darling (yes, my 6th month old darling 🙂  at centrepoint, OneUtama –  forgot the name, something monster. My darling ordered roasted chicken with shitake. And this sauce that they use for the chicken looks like tomato sauce. Knowing me, i’ll taste and try to figure out what’s the ingredient, and thought it was special. Its actually bellpepper sauce. That’s why i came up with this version of mine (but missing another key ingredient – cream, haih nvm la, will do again next time). That’s why from the pic looks like sambal or curry paste rite? wakakka..

Enoki mushroom to substitute of shitake because, 1) it’s cheaper and 2) its cheaper lo 🙂 wakaka..cut cost ma..you know la nowdays, susah cari makan la…wakakka..

The 2nd idea came from this magazine that shows the bouquet of aubergine. I find that’s cool man, so decided to do it myself also lo. I love aubergine. The taste and the texture..hmmm..yup yup..Couscous also my another fav after pasta. IT’s easy to cook and it absorb what ever broth that you use to cook it. For this, i use my mom’s herbal soup. Heeee…If you look closely, i also put some chopped capsicum and tomatoes for colors. Raisin to add the sweet dimension into the couscous – macam Moroccan dish la konon..wakaka..

Well, the other special reason why i decided to write this blog besides my passion for cooking and taking pics is that, the best part..after cooking and getting ready to plate ..guess what happen next??. My camera battery died wo..KNS…i didn’t check lo..walau eh!!..so what i did was..i charge lo..while waiting for it to charge..i think again how to plate better lo..so i wait and wait..n wait..thought after 15mins ok already geh..but..still low ..then i tell myself..ok fine..i’ll snap the pic as fast as i can, as many as i can..and guess what..this is what i got.. consider impressive la..wakakaka…

That’s all for now la..the next one is a fish dish..:) something simple and yet elegant ..it’s call Steamed Fillet on a bed of broccoli with lemon garlic butter sauce with lotus root chips ..Till then..enjoy the pics 🙂

Rolled Seared Beef with Enoki Mushroom

December 1, 2008

dsc04717Moooo….yes..its lembu time..hehe..super cow that is.  For this recipe, i use the strips of loin which is suitable for grilling and searing to wrap with enoki mushroom. No i didn’t create this recipe and yes i copy punya ba.hehe..cause i find it very interesting when i saw the pic from the website with that thingy (enoki mushroom) sticking out..hehe..Anyway, i love beef very muchie, though some chinese religion doesn’t eat beef…hmm..i wonder why..wasted kan..hehe..

dsc04723To prepare, very simple (No, seriously..very simple..no joke :))..For the enoki, you just have to cut the ends and rinse it. Then i sauté the enoki with some finely chopped garlic with butter and of course peanut oil to stop the butter from burning kan..hehe :). Season with some oyster sauce, just a little, not too much and a touch of Mirin (yes, japanese rice wine but with a lower alcohol content) .For about 3mins or until its tender. Remove the enoki from the pan and let it cool before wrapping with the beef strips. 

As for the beef strips, i pound it with a pestle to make a thinner slice. Then, take a few enoki mushrooms and roll it. Now, the best part, remember earlier that i cook the enoki? With the same pan, i seared the beef together with the sauce from the enoki. The beef is seared and cook with the sauce. Seasoning here is definitely not required at all. The natural beef flavor and the combination of the sauce from the enoki is absolutely delicious i tell you. Can be eaten as an appetizer or meal itself. Simply delicious. Enjoy 🙂
