Today’s recipe is from Ferran Adriá’s book “La comida de la familia”. In this occasion the renowned chef uses a pressure cooker to ensure a really tender meat; also this technique saves a lot of time, so it is perfect for meals during the week when we don’t have so much time to spend in the kitchen.
I had some trouble trying to figure out the name in English of the meat that Adriá uses in this recipe (Llata). I’m not sure I have succeeded, but I think the top blade steak will work perfectly. Finally I have to say that I didn’t bother in buying the yellow curry paste, I mean it is a spice that I won’t be using that often and I already have a jar of tahini and another one of cilantro paste in the fridge… So I used a good curry powder instead, same amount. Maybe with the real thing the dish would have been superb, but it was incredible tasty in my version too.
- 900 g top blade steak
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
- 1 bunch fresh cilantro
- 1 tablespoon yellow curry paste
- 300 ml of coconut milk
- 80 ml of olive oil
- 1.5 L of water
- Black pepper
In a pressure cooker add olive oil and sauté the chopped ginger and curry paste. Pour the water.
Season the meat with salt and pepper and place it into the pressure cooker. Close and cook for 50 minutes over medium heat.
After this time open the pressure cooker and reduce the juices until you get a consistent and tasty sauce.
Add remaining coconut milk and cilantro leaves. Rectify the salt. Serve.
