Rare Beef with Pickle, Seeded Mustard & Balsamic Flavour Pearls
A tasty two-bite nibble to enjoy with your pre-dinner drinks. Known as ‘Roast on Toast’ to many a weary chef prepping canapes for events!
The sour tang of our Balsamic Flavour Pearls is just delightful with the Rare Beef. If you wish to include some vegetarian alternatives on your platter simply grill some ribbons of Zucchini, Eggplant and or Capsicum instead of the rare Beef.
What you’ll need
- Baguette (or bought biscuits/crackers of some description)
- Olive oil
- Sea salt & Pepper
- Butter (soft enough to spread a little on your crouton without breaking it!)
- Rare Beef slices – We were a little time poor so bought ours from the Deli *if you prefer to make your own just select your favourite cut and just remember to cook it a little earlier so it’s nice and cool to slice
- Pickles – We used Always Fresh Dill Cucumbers they were delicious!
- Seeded Mustard
- Mayonnaise or Sour Cream/Creme Fraiche
- Balsamic Flavour Pearls
Pop the oven on to 180C. Slice the Baguette with a nice sharp bread knife into 5 – 7mm slices and pop them onto a baking tray. Drizzle a little Olive Oil over (or use a pastry brush) and season with Sea Salt & Pepper. Bake for 5 – 10 minutes or until lightly golden. Leave them to cool on the tray.
*day old bread is just perfect for this and any baked extras you don’t use will keep well in an airtight container for a few days
Slice your Pickles. Mix some Seeded Mustard into your Mayonnaise/Sour Cream and season well. Slice the Beef nice and thinly if you’ve cooked your own.
Spread a little wipe of soft Butter on to each baked Croute. *This will help everything stick a little and Butter just tastes good! Next add a slice of Pickle then a small piece of Rare Beef and a spoonful of the Seeded Mustard mix. I like to hit them with a little more Sea Salt & Pepper at this stage too.
Pop them on to your serving platter then lastly add a few Balsamic Flavour Pearls to each before serving.
Top up your glass and enjoy 🙂
Until next time
