Make short work of cooking homely steak and kidney by stir-frying with onion and pepper, perked up with wine and horseradish. Serve with green beans and noodles. Delicious!
For red wine, use Guinness or another strong brown ale, and instead of soy sauce, use Worcestershire sauce.
Always keep the heat as high as possible when stir-frying and keep the ingredients on the move constantly, to cook everything quickly and retain as many nutrients as possible.
Pastry-topped steak and kidney: Put one sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry rounds from a 425g pack on a baking sheet and mark into eight wedges (or cut a rectangular sheet into eight rectangles). Brush with beaten egg. Bake at 220°C (200°C fan oven), gas 7 for 12-15 minutes or until golden and crisp. Meanwhile, cook the steak and kidney as the basic recipe, replacing the hot horseradish with creamed horseradish. Omit the soy sauce and add 2-3 tbsp double cream or half-fat crème fraîche at the end of cooking. Season to taste and serve each portion with two wedges or rectangles of pastry.
