Beef Valentine

This beef dish looks perfect for Valentines Day, its been created by
Frederick Forster.
In 2011 Frederick won the coveted title Craft Guild National Chef of the Year

The recipes crafted by Frederick demonstrate the way in which Miele steam appliances can be used to create food that is not only delicious, but healthy as well.

By introducing steam into the cooking process, you preserve all the delicate vitamins, nutrients and minerals, as well as all important colour and texture. Cooked in steam, vegetables taste incredibly fresh and fish keeps all its natural flavours.  There’s no need to add oils or fats to food, during the cooking process, as the steam keeps all meats succulent and tasty.  Also, very little salt is required, as the natural flavours are retained.  

Miele was the first to pioneer cooking with steam in the integrated kitchen appliance arena. Their new range of innovative products signify a new chapter in cooking.

2 x 180g beef fillets
10 ml vegetable oil

  3. Never heard of steaming beef like this. Probably not good for cheaper cuts of beef but as fillet is tender anyway it works. Thanks for the recipe.

  4. This looks interesting, I'd never have thought of steaming.
