We are increasingly stressed, we have less time for leisure and to spend with the family. Making a special menu for your loved ones can be a great idea to enjoy quality time with them. It doesn’t have to be a special occasion, the important thing is to get together and enjoy a good meal. That is why we are going to propose a simple and rich menu that you can prepare to surprise your loved ones.
Do you like heavy or light starters? Are you fingering canapés or do you prefer that each one be served on their plate?
Whatever your preferences, with a salad like the beef and grilled pear salad or some beef pastries you will always be right. And if you want to go for something more sophisticated, these beef hanger steaks Tataki with fresh coriander, pine nuts and chicken butter are ideal.
First Course: Beef Sirloin with Honey, Soy Sauce and Mustard
In the second course, we look for something more forceful that adds proteins such as a good beef tenderloin. It’s easy to make and your whole family will love the taste of it. We need the following ingredients:
1 piece of sirloin 1,200 g
2 tablespoons of honey
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon of mustard
30 ml of white wine
20 ml of olive oil
To start, we tie the sirloin in a cylindar shape and brown it in the pan. While it is browning, we mix the ingredients making the soy sauce, honey and mustard marinade.
After browning the meat, cover it well with the marinade and we put it in an oven bag. Roast at 180º for 40 minutes.
Now we prepare a simple garnish with potatoes and onions. We add aromatic herbs, a little white wine and we also put it in the oven, the same time as the meat.
We take our perfectly cooked meat from the oven with its sauce, its garnish ready to serve. It will be rich and tender with a very pleasant flavor.
If you prefer to try another recipe, we recommend the beef stew with Guiness, it is very simple to make, it has a rich and strong flavor.
After the first two courses comes the dessert. If you want to end the evening with a sweet touch, chocolate always triumphs. You can make a delicious chocolate mousse; it is simple to make and will appeal to both children and adults.
These have been our suggestions for a perfect menu to celebrate with your family. We hope you put them into practice.
