Peninsula Larders Balsamic Flavour Pearls are delicious with grilled meats

What you’ll need…

  • Eye fillet portions (or whichever steak cut makes you happy) allow 1 per person – room temperature at cooking time please
  • Olive oil – splash
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Butter
  • Cooked Cipollini onions – see below
  • Cooked King Mushrooms – see below
  • Mashed potato
  • 1 x 50 g jar Balsamic Flavour Pearls

Lets get started

First we need to cook the onions…allow a 45 minute cooking time (can be cooked earlier and just reheat before serving) Allow 3 – 5 per person. Preheat oven to 180C.

  • Cipollini Onions (pearl onions are an ok substitute), outer layer removed
  • Olive Oil , enough to liberally coat onions
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Salt & Pepper 
Toss onions and thyme with olive oil and place on a baking tray or other dish. Season then roast in oven for about 35 minutes, turning every 10 minutes to brown sides evenly. Remove when tender and golden.

Get your potatoes cooking. Just make them as you normally would…the only decadent thing I would do is add cream instead of milk if I have it on hand. Season well and keep warm.

Next the steak and mushrooms need cooking

Get your pan or grill nice and hot…oil and season your steaks well and cook to desired done-ness. Rest them somewhere warm for a few minutes before serving. Whilst the steaks are on add your king mushrooms (just cut them in half and a quick oil and season) cut side down first for a couple of minutes. Turn them over and cook for a couple of minutes longer with a good bit of butter on top too.

Ready to serve

Simply start with a spoon of mash and add your steak, mushrooms and onions and finish with a generous spoonful of Balsamic Flavour Pearls

Now just pour that glass of red and tuck in.

Ta dah…

Until next time

Enjoy…from the Peninsula Larder Team
