Filet mit Äpfeln - Broiled Steak on Apples

It has been a while since I blooged...but I will do my best to change that in the future...new posts will be added...that means new things to try out ;)

Lets start with this one. The recipe is taken from the book 'Gourmets Old Vienna Cookbook' by Lillian Langseth-Christensen. Here is the recipe:

Rub six 1 1/2-inch slices of filet of beef well with salt and pepper and let them stand out at room temperature for 1 hour.

Rice 1 pound hot potatoes, cooked and peeled, and stir in 2 well beaten egg yolks and 2 tablespoons ground horseradish. Add salt and pepper to taste and shape the potatoes into 6 cakes the same size as the filets. Place them on a buttered baking sheet and brown them in a moderate oven (350 F), turning them once. Remove and keep them warm.

Melt 2 tablespoon butter in a skillet and add 6 mushrooms, peeled, and 2 cooking apples, peeled, cored and sliced. Saute them until they are tender but not soft.

Broil the filets, 3 inches below the heat, until they are done, turning them once. The filets take about 7 minutes on each side, for rare.

Arrange the hot potato cakes on a warm platter, top each with a slice of apple, and cover each slice with a filet. Garnish with a mushroom and pour over the butter from skillet.

Mahlzeit :)
