Swiss Beef
« on: September 07, 2009, 01:03:01 pm »
Name of Recipe: Swiss Beef

This is our family's favourite meal.  Very simple, but so tasty!  We hope you enjoy it too.  :)

Number of People: Serves 4 adults (with steamed veg).

Ingredients:
A handful of fresh parsley
1 onion, peeled and quartered
100g bacon rashers
50g olive oil
500g casserole steak – trimmed and diced
500g beef stock
Salt and pepper to taste.
160g white rice (long grain)

Preparation:
Place parsley into bowl and chop for 5 seconds on speed 5.  Set aside.
Place onion and bacon into bowl and chop for 3-4 seconds on speed 5. Scrape down bowl.
Add olive oil and sauté for 3 minutes, 1000, reverse speed 1.
Add steak and sauté for 3 minutes, 1000, reverse soft speed.
Add 250g of stock and salt & pepper and cook for 25 minutes, 1000, reverse soft speed.
Add rice and remaining stock and continue cooking for a further 20 minutes, 1000, reverse soft speed.
Add chopped parsley and stir through for 10 seconds, reverse speed 3.
Serve with steamed greens.  Enjoy.

Tips/Hints:
I have tried to steam veg in the varoma whilst the Swiss Beef was cooking, but it doesn't work well on the 1000 temperature setting.  The Swiss Beef can be kept warm in the thermoserve however whilst veggies are being steamed in the varoma for a complete family meal.

Good work - no the vegies don't tend to cook - but you can cook some custards/timbales at that temp - something to try.

Hi Chelsea, we had this for lunch today and both of us really enjoyed it.  I left it in the bowl after it finished cooking and made a quick (?) phone call to a friend.  1 hour later it was time to serve lunch and I was surprised the meal looked like a risotto, having sat there for that long.  Is this how yours turns out or would it have had a different texture if I'd have served it immediately it was cooked? No matter what though, it was delicious and am thinking chicken could be substituted along with canned tomatoes for a completely different meal.  Thanks for posting it.

I'm glad you enjoyed it JD.  Yes it does look like a risotto - even after 5 minutes in the thermoserve.  My hubby said it was the best "risotto" I've ever made (hehehe).  It reheats really well as the rice doesn't go mushy like aborio sometimes can. :)

Thanks for that.  We don't particularly like risotto in this house but we really enjoyed your dish and have leftovers for another meal. DH said to make sure I let you know he enjoyed it - he thinks it's his role now in life to be the official taste tester of new recipes  ;D ;D ;D

Made this for dinner tonight...the family loved it. Everyone thought it tasted like corned beef! Considering that is a favourite meal in this house and they don't get it very often (as I don't like the  chemicals) this could become their substitute to hold over the begging lol  ;) ;)

Perhaps it was the bacon in it. :P

I made a chicken version of this for dinner tonight and it was great. Used 800gm chicken thighs and as I only had brown rice I parboiled it first because I though everything else would turn to mush before the rice cooked. I only needed 250ml chicken stock and threw in some peas for the last few minutes. A very tasty and quick meal. :-* :-* Thank you Chelsea

Yes I did. I actually though I had taken thigh fillets out of the freezer but they turned out to be cutlets ??? Oh well they were easy to bone out.
