Beef escalopes with courgette and asparagus

image

This recipe was inspired by having a very full freezer!  We bought part of a cow sometime ago and it has slowly been filling up our freezer after several visits to the farm!  So Kristine, no cow pie yet but still cow related 🙂

It’s quite a simple recipe but with good results.  Tasty, fairly healthy and resulted in very tender meat.

I used 4 small beef escalopes for two people.  The escalopes were already pretty flat but you can always tenderise them more by wrapping them in clingfilm and hitting with a rolling pin (or a proper meat hammer if your kitchen is that well equipped!!!).

I put the two ends of a loaf of bread into a blender to get breadcrumbs.  I mixed these with 50g of parmesan cheese and a handful of chopped parsley.  Then I beat two eggs (well 1.5 after I managed to lose some on the floor, don’t ask me why!) and mixed with a little bit of lemon juice.  I dipped the escalopes in the egg mixture and then coated in the breadcrumbs ready to be cooked.

I gently fried some slices of courgette and asparagus for approximately 5 mins.  I cooked the escalopes in a little bit of oil for 3 mins on each side and served with a slice of lemon, some nice wine and candlelight 🙂  A perfect light meal!

    Looks great even if not cow pie!

  2. Oooh… Very Nigella Lawsonesque atmospheric shots at the end! It looks lovely, though!
