Karachi is having a severe heatwave these days with temperature hitting 42C. It feels like sitting in a tandoor yet you have to cook because it’s Sunday & pait ki aag to bujhani hy 🙂
Was craving for steak and can’t resist to get baked while grilling this to perfection. It’s a simple no fuss recipe with a desi touch.
What I do is rub some salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, soy sauce and lemon juice on a flattened chicken breast piece and let it sit for few minutes while I peel 2-3 potatoes for mash.
Boil them in salted water, sautè 2-3 chopped garlic cloves in some butter. Add boiled potatoes and start mashing them. Add half cup of milk and season as per your taste buds with salt n pepper. It takes just 3-5 minutes to thicken. Add one slice of cheddar cheese with milk if you like, it’s optional. Finish it off with a pinch of dried oregano and red chilli flakes.
For steak, heat tawa or grill. I’ve used tawa here. High heat really high heat. Add some oil and butter together just before throwing in that marinated piece of meat. 3 minutes each side. Flip only once. No need to press it. Let the high heat do it’s work.
I like to deglaze tawa with hints of vinegar or lemon juice in the end.
Serve with cheesy buttered toast. Yumm.
