Slow Cooking of Loin of Veal

As loin of veal is often on offer in my nearest Supermarked this is what I like to buy when we have guests for dinner.

Unfortunately the loin of veal I bought had a tendency to be a little tough, even a little boring, so I was asking around to find a way to make this meat more tender and tasty.

I found the secret to make this cheap meat tender and tasty, and I guess it will work for other kinds of meat than loin of veal:

Slow Cooking was the answer!

tender loin of veal slow cooked

I have heard about different versions of the slow cooking, but this one  has worked miracles for me.

How To Do It:

Preheat the oven to 350 F (180 C).




You clean the loin of veal for tendons.
Cut the top of the meat, the fat, and rub the whole piece of meat with salt and other spices if you want that.
I always use a lot of salt, it makes some very tasty slices when you cut the meat.

When the oven is warm enough, place the loin of veal on the grate and let it stay in the oven for 10 min.
Take it out of the oven and let it rest, without being covered, for 10 min.

Place it again on the grate in the oven for 10 min.
Take it out of the oven and let it rest, without being covered, for 10 min.

Place it again on the grate in the oven, now let it stay there until the inner temperature is approx 133 F (56 C) in the center.
With a piece of meat 100 g that will normally take 15 – 18 min.

Now take the meat out of the oven and wrap it in 3-4 layers of aluminum foil and leave it for 45 min before you slice it and serve it. (see below the best way to slice a loin)
You will be surprised how tender and delicious this “not so expensive” meat is now!

Here is a table with an overview of the various stages in this slow cooking:

Weight 1,0 – 1,3 kg 1,3 – 1,5 kg 1,5 – 1,7 kg More than 1,7 kg
Inside the oven 10 min. 12 min. 15 min. 20 min.
Out of the oven 10 min. 12 min. 15 min. 20 min.
Inside the oven 10 min. 12 min. 15 min. 20 min.
Out of the oven 10 min. 12 min. 15 min. 20 min.
Inside the oven Until 133 F Until 133 F Until 133 F Until 133 F
Wrapped up out of the oven 45 min. 45 min 45 min 45 min





To make the slices of the loin of veal even more tender and juicy you should cut the meat like this:

Start cutting from the pointed end of the loin of veal.
When you have cut approx. 1/3 of the piece of meat, turn it around and cut in the other direction as showed on the drawing below.

Low Carb Meatballs in Curry

 Dinner  Comments Off on Low Carb Meatballs in Curry
Jan 052017
 

This dinner idea for meatballs in curry is guaranteed to be a success with both low carb eaters and other family members!!


I don’t have the exact recipe, kind of just made it up on the way, but it is so simple there will be no problems making it.

It consists of meat balls made of minced chicken stirred with eggs and psyllium husks and a little almond flour, not too much though or the meatballs will become a little boring.
If you like you can use other kinds of minced meat, I’m just into chicken meat these days.

As you maybe can see from the little green spots on the photo of the force meat below I often add blended onions and blended vegetables like broccoli and squash, because it is an easy way to make sure you get enough vegetables.

I serve this dish with rice for the kids, but for low carb fans I always serve it with the broccoli-cauliflower-rice.
Find the recipe for the broccoli-cauliflower rice on this other blog post.

meatballs for curry meal

Stir this mixture well.
Boil water in a pot, and add little meatballs to cook for approx. 5 min.
The easiest way to make the meatballs is to use a small table spoon, dipped in melted butter.
Take a spoon full of forcemeat and place it in the boiling water.

To make the curry sauce fry onions with curry paste of your choice, or curry powder, then add coconut milk.
Season with salt and maybe more paste, and finally add the meatballs.
If it needs more taste you can add a soup cube with chicken taste.

This broccoli-cauliflower rice recipe is great when you need a well tasting and healthy low carb substitute for rice.

broccoli-cauliflower rice

Use half a half a cauliflower head and 1 broccoli.
Clean them, and grate them very fine, mix together.

Add just a little olive oil to make the mixture easy to digest, and use it instead of rice.

It looks good, and it tastes even better.
I use it with all kinds of sauces, especially together with the dish low carb meatballs in curry.

How to Get Your Roast Beef Just Right!

 Dinner  Comments Off on How to Get Your Roast Beef Just Right!
Jan 012017
 

After I started to make the most of our meals low carb the roast beef is a safe choice.




In the beginning I fried it in the pan and then in the pot, as I had always done.
The problem was that I always felt it wasn’t as tender as I would have liked it, perhaps because the cheap deals on roast beef were not always cut from the best meat.

What do you do?
I thought that after all, roast beef is still one of the best choices for low carb meals.

So I tried different ways to cook roast beef, and I definitely prefer the recipe where I boil the meat!
If you haven’t tried it I’m sure you will think it sounds just as boring as I thought it would be, that is, until I tried it!’
(I have to mention though that I cook it for 5 min.after having boiled it. :-))

tender roastbeef recipe

The boiled roast beef just before I roasted it in 5 minutes and served it.

Give it a try. The meat becomes so tender, it does not provide as much fat in the kitchen, and it tastes good!

Here is how you do it:

1500 g. Roast beef (is laced like a roast)

water
butter
salt
pepper

Add the meat in a pot of boiling water, boil it for 25-30 minutes. (C-temp. 40 degrees meat thermometer, F-temp. 104 degrees.).

Remove the meat, dry it and rub the meat with plenty of salt and some pepper.

Fry browned in butter for about 5 minutes, turn it to make all sides browned.

Place the meat in a dish and let it rest for 20 minutes without covering it.
Cut the meat into thin slices and serve it




If you want to serve the meat cold for lunch or breakfast:

Let the meat cool slightly before being wrapped and placed in a refrigerator.
When the meat is cold cut it into thin slices.

Low Carb Veggie Burger

 Dinner, Lunch  Comments Off on Low Carb Veggie Burger
Sep 282016
 

I made this veggie burger without a recipe, because I do that often, and it ended up being a really tasty burger.
You can use it for dinner or lunch, we (4 people) had it for lunch with avocado and chili humus, which added something really nice to the fried burgers.

Vegetable burger lunch

Ingredients:

Oil for frying
3 leeks, well cleaned and cut
4 -5 carrots, grated
2 red beets, grated
1 tin of cooked green lenses
(A full handful of chopped kale, though just added because I had it in the freezer)
2 eggs
1 cup of almond flour
1/4 chili
Paprika
Carry
Salt and pepper
finely chopped nuts to use for “breading”




Fry the cut leeks for about 5 -7 min., then add the grated carrots and red beets, the chopped kale too, and fry together with chopped chili, some paprika, carry and salt and pepper until it’s all well done.
Blend the eggs, almond flour and lenses, and mix it with the fried vegetables.

This mixture is a little wet, but form it into burgers, and sprinkle with the blended or finely chopped nuts.

Fry them 4-5 min on each side.

Serve with salad or, as we did, with avocado and chili humus.

Delicious Low Carb Crispbread

 Low Carb Bread  Comments Off on Delicious Low Carb Crispbread
May 232016
 

Low carb crispbreadAs a great bread-lover I have also made a lot of homemade crispbread, often together with my kids, because it is so easy, and it tastes SO good, especially if you have made it yourself.
So I more or less had to keep the kids from eating it all in one day 🙂

When I started the whole thing with low carb, I still made the crispbread I used to make, because they didn’t contain that much carb after all.

But this recipe contains so little carb that there is no way I could feel bad about making the crispbread, and it tastes even better than the ones I made before.

So it is a win-win situation!

Recipe

1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup sesame seeds
2 dl flaxseed
1.5 dl pumpkin seeds
1 tablespoon psyllium husk (HUSK)
1.5 tsp salt
2.5 cups water
1 egg

Whip egg with water and salt in a bowl, and add the rest. Allow the mixture to rest on the kitchen table for half an hour while you turn on the oven at 150 degrees (Celcius) or 300 F.
Spread batter on baking paper on a baking sheet. It’s a little tough, so I use to cover the batter with yet another baking pager and flatten it with a rolling pin so that the dough is uniformly thick on the whole plate. With a knife you now cut the dough in the size you want, it makes about 24 pieces.
Here you may want to sprinkle half the dough with blue poppy seeds and the other half with toasted sesame seeds.
Bake for 1 1/2 hours. Then you push all the pieces onto a wire rack, and bake another half an hour until the pieces are bone dry. Maybe they even need a little longer.
Cool completely and store in tightly sealed box.

Steak with Vegetables and Beetroot Salad

 Lunch  Comments Off on Steak with Vegetables and Beetroot Salad
May 172016
 

Here is a great idea for lunch or dinner: Steak with cooked and fried vegetables and beetroot salad.
As you can see on the picture I added some fried sweet potatoes. That is not low carb, I know – but when you don’t have to follow the low carb cure strictly, then this is one of the things you can do and still keep your weight.

Lunch steak with vegetables

Ingredients:
Steaks (but chicken breast will do fine as well)Broccoli
Cauliflower
Zucchini
Green salad
Tomatoes
Beetroot
Horseradish
Greek yoghurt or Skyr

Salt

Peel the beetroot and cut it into small bites. Add grated horseradish and Skyr, mix it all and add a little salt.

Cook the cauliflower and broccoli, but only for a few minutes, we want it still to be crunchy.

Fry the zucchini (and the sweet potatoes, if you want that) together with the steaks. Add as much salt as you prefer in your food.

Finally serve it on a dish as you see above, presenting all the different colors, with a leaf of green salad and cut tomatoes.

Omelet for Breakfast

Who wouldn’t like to have an omelet like this for breakfast?
Surely I would, especially if somebody else made it for me 🙂

low carb breakfast omelet

Ingredients:
Two eggs per person
1-2 tomatoes
Bacon
Chives
A little oil

Optional:
Fat cheese
Cream

You can add some cheese on the omelet, and even a little cream in the omelet, if you like your breakfast to be a little more with substance.

Clean the tomatoes and the chives, cut both.

Fry the bacon. Some people want it almost raw, others prefer it almost crispy, and if you have the time you can make the bacon just like everybody prefers.

Stir the eggs together with a fork (add some cream if you like).
Spray the frying pan with oil, and when the oil is warm add the eggs.
Fry the omelet and if you like me like it well cooked use a lid to turn it over to fry it on the other side as well.
Right before it is finished you can add some cheese to melt on the omelet.

Now add bacon, tomatoes and chives, and you have a very tasty and delicious breakfast!
