I have been missing out so many blogging world's online event for years, blaming my own mood if not this business of raising two homeschoolers and a toddler. The time to write is so limited and always be interrupted with the kids' and (sometimes) the father's needs. I guess it's just one risk of being a multitasking person, I believe.
Today, I ask them to let me have an hour free to prepare this blog post and here I am. Zorra, I keep my promise. Here is my entry for your BBD#57: Blogwarming Party.
with Beef Mince and Mushroom Filling
Actually, I made assorted bread from one dough recipe. I am that kind of person, who'd like to grab any opportunity to taste different things at one time. I think I am eligible for a wine tasting. *kidding
From this rich bread dough recipe, I made three kinds of bread: Mexican Coffee Buns, Savoury Bread with beef mince and mushroom filling, and Mexican Coffee Buns with Nutella filling. They all turned out really good and delicious. That's what my family said.
I followed the recipe for the bread dough here. It turned out really good, kind of spongy for a homemade bread.
And this is my recipe for the Beef Mince and Mushroom filling.
300g beef mince
1 medium onion, finely chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
1 cup shiitake mushroom, soaked in warm water, chopped, reserve the soaking water
2 medium tomatoes, blanched and diced
2 Tbs tomato paste
3 Tbs smokey BBQ sauce
1 tsp chopped rosemary
1 tsp chopped thyme
2 cups fresh homemade beef stock
salt and pepper to taste
oil to cook
Heat the oil in a frying pan. Cook chopped onion until translucent. Add in beef and brown. Throw in chopped garlic while beef is cooking. Throw in chopped mushrooms and its soaking water. Add in diced tomatoes, tomato paste and BBQ sauce, stir well. Pour in beef stock, cook until bubbly and the beef mince is tender. Throw in chopped herbs and season to taste. When the sauce is thickened, remove the filling from the stove to cool and ready to be used for bread filling.
Have a great party, everyone!
