Delicious Braised beef and Horseradish dumplings.

If you are given a multiple choice question:

Which part of entire cooking process, from beginning to end, do you like best? and why?

Food preparation?

My preference would be : Food prep, follow by cleaning then cooking.

Food preparation comes first, as I basically must know what I wanted to eat for the day and starts preparing the ingredients earlier, eg like buying, thawing and down to detail of how to cut my vegetables or meat.

Cleaning... I cannot tolerate messy kitchen.
Its funny though... both of us can't stand messy kitchen and yet, when it comes to cooking, he is the messier one!!

Bottle of sauces, bags of spices and he almost 'emptied' (of course.. I must exaggerate!) the drawers of utensils, pots and pans :P.

Cooking... and it depends on what type of food we are having.
Elaborate Asian cooking will be his forte.

Most of long process that involved elaborate prep and cooking like :

Beef rendang,  Daging Masak Hitam / Beef Curry in Sweet Soy Sauce and Butter Chicken on this blog were cooked by hubby, photographed by me :P.

I am all for less work, less mess and less time sweating over the stove :P.

Hence this Braised Beef with Horseradish Dumplings, is my kind of cooking.

This Braised Beef with Horseradish Dumplings, can be categorised as one pot meal, if I were to use a skillet or any ovenproof vessel.

However,  I must showcase my enamel bakeware that I bought from Aldi, cost me less than the branded enamel sold in either Woollies/ Coles or kitchen household shops.

From original recipe featured in Good food Australia, I adapted this Braised Beef with Horseradish Dumplings recipe to suit our tastebud.

If you are to cook this Braised Beef with Horseradish Dumplings, do buy gravy beef, it made a lot of difference than ordinary steak.

The meat pieces are juicy, moist and tender.

  1. wow!!! it look delicious. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

  2. I saw horseradish dumplings and was sold. I must make these. I'm not really a big fan of caraway seeds, so I would omit those, but the rest of the recipe sounds great! I love braised beef! And one pot meals, I love those too. Anything that makes cooking easier, I'm all about it. I love to cook, but don't always want to spend hours slaving away for a good meal :-) -Danielle
