Im' fed up with stews.They last too long> I am a senior and Diabetic. So I am constantly looking for tasty dishes.For one. I dont mind eating the stew twice but 5 times is just too much. How many dishes could I get out of this 1.004kg piece.? does anyone have any easy suggestions

    Beef tartare! This particular recipe calls for tenderloin, but I use eye of round with good results.

      I actually like that cut sliced in steak thickness and done au poivre.

        Now that sounds a good idea too.Do you mean like a Dianne or with a good black pepper pressed into it

          I heat the skillet dry with a little salt in it, toss in the meat to sear,grind a lot of pepper on it, turn, grind more pepper, deglaze with brandy, and add a little cream before the brandy has all cooked off. Spoon the brandy/cream/peppercorn pan gravy over the steaks. Somewhere between a Dianne and a classic au poivre.

            I am actually making that right now. I put a baked potatoe in half an hour ago. I will also use some of my own home grown green beans that I froze in the summer. A meal fit for a king/or queen as the case maybe. Thanks Tim

              That is a classic combination. Bon appetit!
