Nigella's Date Steak

Well I can't say we had a date last night but we did have a delicious steak! This is another of the recipes from Nigella Kitchen. We bought some organic grass fed steak from the markets and decided to cook it Nigella style. This basically meant just simmering up her sauce - brown sugar, red wine vinegar, soy sauce, dijon mustard, tomato paste, ginger, garlic and redcurrant jelly, along with the meat juices from your panfried steak.


Well the sauce was really tasty, so much flavour (so little effort) and the steak was juicy and tender. I felt a bit guilty not buying the meat from my amazing local butcher but I kind of wanted to compare, and to be honest I will stick to buying from our butcher. The steak was good but I think our butchers steak is better.

My daughter LOVES a good bone to chew on!
