Ingredients

2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 pound beef for stew , cubed
1 tablespoon butter
1 onion , diced
1 tablespoon garlic powder
salt
pepper
½ cup red wine
4 bay leaves
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 tablespoons of water
2 tablespoons of tomato paste
3.5 ounces of cheddar , cubed (some 8 cubes)

1 tablespoon butter
2 tablespoons of hot milk

Ingredients

  • For the mashed potatoes:

Steps

1
Done

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium heat and add the beef cubes. Cook and stir until it starts browning, or for 4-5 minutes.

2
Done

Add the butter and onion. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes, then simmer for 5-6 minutes.

3
Done

Add the garlic powder and season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 1-2 minutes.

4
Done

Add the red wine and simmer for 4-5 minutes. Add the bay leaves and stir once.

5
Done

Add the cornstarch and water to a smaller bowl and mix using a teaspoon. Add this mixture to the skillet and stir once. Add the tomato paste and stir until even.

6
Done

Remove the skillet from heat. Transfer the beef mixture to a 10 x 2 inch (25 x 5 cm) round baking dish (or something equivalent) and evenly spread it.

7
Done

For the mashed potatoes:

Peel and cube the potatoes, transfer them to a cooking pot, and cover them with salted water. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat, and gently boil the potatoes for 15-20 minutes. Drain them and return them to the pot. Cook them for 1-2 minutes over very low heat to let any moisture evaporate. Add the butter and milk and mash the potatoes until smooth and even.

8
Done

Wrap each Cheddar cube with some mashed potatoes and form them into balls. We’ve made 8 of them.

9
Done

Place the balls in the baking dish. Spread the grated mozzarella between them. Bake for 30 minutes at 400⁰F/200⁰C.

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it. However, in time I kind of built on this habit and, slowly but surely, I began to turn toward the Mediterranean cuisine and, occasionally, even the Mediterranean diet. I am a curious and inquisitive person. So, pretty soon, I started trying to recreate what I’ve tasted or seen. At first, this proved to be hard work for my better half, as she supervised my new experiments. But lately, results really started to show, so wish me luck!
