So in order to keep everyone happy (my brain and my conscience.. and Katia) I invited her to come over and enjoy a home cooked meal at my place.
Decided to make a new Italian recipe, not very summery but not too heavy either: spezzatino allo yoghurt. It was good!
- 300 gr of Bocconcini di Vitello (veal meat cubes)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper
- one shallot chopped
- 100 gr of carrots thinly sliced
- 1 tablespoon of herbs provencale (basel, thyme, rosemary)
- 125 gr yoghurt (full or low fat)
- tad of milk
- 1 tablespoon flour
How to make it:
Cut the veal in medium sized cubes, salt and pepper them and then cover them with some flour.
Heat up the oil in a deep frying pan. Add the veal and fry until golden brown.
Add the onion and carrots to the meat. Toss for a couple of minutes until the carrots get softer.
Add some salt, pepper and herbs to taste.
In the mean time mix the yoghurt, milk and flour to a creamy mixture and add it to the meat and carrots.
Heat and stir until the sauce becomes creamy.
The whole takes 10-15 minutes!
If you want to have it with rice: start boiling the water at the start and add the rice when you add the carrots to the meat. That way it's all done at the same time.
Outcome: in combination with some rice you have a perfect weekday meal. Nothing extraordinary but still better than a take-out! you could also make this with beef or chicken.... up to you!
