This week’s Bistrot Paul Bert Pepper Steak recipe had so many things going for it!
It had steak, which my husband loves.
It was quick and easy, which I love.
And it included standing back and setting a match to Cognac to make a flame!
(Which sadly my husband talked me out of, knowing full well I’d most likely burn the kitchen down!)
I made simple green beans and a potato gratin which I put into my cupcake pan?!
I mixed a kilo of sliced potatoes with an egg, two cloves of garlic, a cup of heavy cream and some grated cheese.
Then pushed the mixture into a well greased muffin tin.
They turned out great!
It made all the slices and injuries on my fingertips, from preparing them, worthwhile!
(And reminded me why the flame, as enticing as it was, was not a good idea for me!)
So, next time, and there will be a next time, I will reduce the amount of Cognac and add some mushrooms!
