Sautéed mushrooms – recipe

During the mushroom season, there’s nothing better than a panful of sautéed mixed mushrooms! Let’s see with Sonia how to clean and cook them.

 

Hi GialloZafferano viewers and welcome to our kitchen. During the mushroom season, there’s nothing better than a panful of sautéed mixed mushrooms! They can be served with meat dishes, polenta or, why not, croùtons. But let’s see together what ingredients we’ll need:
• 4 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
• 1 bunch of parsley
• 1 ½ tbsp (20 g) of butter
• salt • 2 cloves of garlic
• 1,3 lbs (600 g) of fresh mixed mushrooms (in this case, I’ve chosen porcini, champignon, oyster and honey mushrooms)
Let’s prepare together the sautéed mushrooms:
Begin by cleaning the mushrooms: first of all, cut off the base of the stem, using a knife. That’s it, cleaning the champignon mushrooms is quite easy; with regard to the porcini mushrooms, you have to be more careful, so remove any dirt, cutting off as little as possible of course. Probably you’ve been told that mushrooms, especially porcini mushrooms, should not be washed or soaked in water, but if there’s a lot of dirt, instead of wiping with a damp cloth, as commonly said, you should definitely rinse them quickly under cold running water, and pat them dry immediately, since mushrooms are spongy and soak up a lot of water. After cleaning the stem and removing any dirt, we’re ready to cut them: in this case, since we’re using mixed mushrooms, try and cut them evenly, in a similar way, so that they will cook evenly, too.
And here are the cut up mushrooms, I suggest to cut them lengthwise, in order to keep the mushroom shape and an even thickness, more or less; only the honey mushrooms have been left whole, because they’re very small and will cook evenly with the other mushrooms. So, put the butter and the oil in a pan and add the 2 cloves of garlic, that can be cut in half, chopped, sliced, left whole with skin on or removed after browning… it’s up to you. Now add the mushrooms and cook stirring very gently, to keep from breaking; cook them on a high flame, never on low heat.
10 min. — high heat
After about 10 minutes of cooking, add salt… remember to leave the pan uncovered… and plenty of chopped parsley. Then cook for 5 minutes more and the mushrooms are ready.
5 min. — high heat
And here is our beautiful dish of sautéed mushrooms! Remember that you can use the mushrooms you like most or those available on the market, to create your favourite mix. From Sonia and GialloZafferano, bye and see you next video recipe.

Ossobuco Milanese style – Original Italian recipe

Leave a comment

 

The ossobuco is a traditional dish of the Milanese cuisine: a rich and tasty main course, usually served with polenta or with a Yellow Saffron risotto!

***

Hi and welcome to the GialloZafferano kitchen, today we’ll be preparing together a typical main course of Lombardy: the ossobuco Milanese style. Let’s see what ingredients we’ll need:
• 4 veal shanks with marrow bone, weighing about 10-12 oz (300-350 g) each
• 1 small onion
• Pepper / salt
• 3,5 tbsp (50 g) of butter
• 1 glass of dry white wine • About 4 cups (1 lt) of meat broth
• ½ cup (50 g) of flour
• 2-3 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
• 1 lemon
• 1 clove of garlic
• 1 clump of parsley
Let’s make together the ossobuco Milanese style:
First of all, peel and finely chop the onion, then take a pan large enough to contain the 4 veal shanks and put in the oil, 2-3 tablespoons, the butter and the chopped onion. Let it soften on a very low flame for at least 10-15 minutes; it means that the onion shouldn’t brown, but stay light coloured and turn transparent. Now we can move on to our ossobucos: if there is, remove the tough skin, while, with regard to the skin surrounding the meat, cut it in several spots to keep from curling; on the contrary, leave it whole if you think the meat would flake apart. After that, roll them in flour on both sides.
Once the onion has softened, add the shanks and brown on both sides. Now add the white wine… let it evaporate, and when it’s all evaporated add the broth, little by little, cover with a lid, and cook the ossobucos for at least an hour, an hour and a half, until tender. I remind you that according to a common variant, you can add also some tomato puree.
60-90 min. — low heat
5 minutes before the end of cooking, it’s time to add the gremolada, that is a mix of chopped parsley, garlic and grated lemon zest, so pour them in… stir a little bit and let the ossobucos cook together with the gremolada for 5 minutes more.
Our wonderful ossobuco Milanese style is finally ready. You can serve it with the classic saffron risotto or with a creamy polenta. From Sonia and GialloZafferano, bye bye and see you next videorecipe.

Check out this classic Texas Chili that’s been cooked up in the States since the mid 1800’s, and for good reason. It tastes real good, is simple to make, and its spicy heat will sure cure what ails you. This is all meat chili Texas Country style.

This all meat “chili con carne” has Spanish and Mexican roots, but it took the Texas Range Cooks out on the cattle drives to make this style of Chili a legend.

Sliced steak recipe

Leave a comment

Sonia reveals the secrets of cooking the sliced steak, a classic main course often served with rocket and tomatoes.

***

We are lodged in an organic farm in the regional park of the Euganean Hills, very close to Padua, in the Veneto region.
Surrounded by such a beautiful landscape I’ve prepared this excellent sliced steak and I’ll show you my cooking secrets!
• 3,5 oz (100 g) of rocket
• 7 oz (200 g) of cherry tomatoes • 1,8 lbs (800 g) of entrecôte steak
• oil, pepper and coarse salt to taste
Let’s make together the sliced steak with rocket and tomatoes:
First of all, take the meat out of the fridge at least an hour in advance, it must be at room temperature, then heat a grill pan until very hot, sprinkle some coarse salt and put the meat on the fire. In this case, the meat is about 2-2 ½ inches thick and it should cook at least 5 minutes per side, according to your taste of course; remember to turn the meat only once on each side… so cook for 5 minutes, then flip it over and cook for 5 minutes more; the steak should be quite pink inside… given that, you can make it more or less cooked.
After 5 minutes, lift the meat, without piercing, and flip it over, add some more coarse salt and cook for 5 minutes more on the other side.
When the meat is ready, let it rest for at least 10 minutes, so that the juices distribute evenly. Then slice the meat, without piercing the surface. As you can see, this steak is medium rare, but if you prefer it more cooked, keep it on the flame at least 2 minutes more per side.
Serve the sliced steak on a bed of rocket, after that add the cherry tomatoes, that have been cut into quarters… sprinkle with pepper… drizzle extra virgin olive oil… and, for a touch of class, serve it with different salt varieties such as the Himalayan pink salt, the Cyprus black salt or the grey sea salt from Brittany. Enjoy your sliced steak and see you next time with Sonia!
