Got some steak for his dinner.

Do I need to beat it or something? I never usually cook it

PMSL at this thread title,

I think beatng it tenderising it <or something>

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 12:00:51

Right, am at work at the mo but it will have 2 hours from me getting home to being chucked in the pan - will that be enough do you think?

EyeballsintheSky Wed 17-Sep-08 12:01:51

Humph. I only clicked on this thread in the hope of a cheap thrill. hmm

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 12:01:52

Dr N I think its my favourite ever title (of my own composition I mean)

I think we should have "thread title of the week" in MP's roundup and this should be it grin [blows own trumpet]

yep beating it tenderises it, and it really depends on what vut of meat it is whether or not it needs tenderising before frying.

I'd give it a good beat, it is highly theraputic grin

DrNortherner Wed 17-Sep-08 12:02:37

You don't chuck it in a pan - yuo seal it grin

Overmydeadbody Wed 17-Sep-08 12:02:53

you're planning on 'beating his meat' for two hours? shock

Respect

DrNortherner Wed 17-Sep-08 12:03:38

Yiu can't talk about blowing trumpets on a thread about beating yer dh's meat.

What kind of woman are you?

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 12:06:55

I think you already know the answer to that question Dr N

DrNortherner Wed 17-Sep-08 12:07:27

Slag

wink

What kind of steak is it, MamaG

<injects serious, respectable and helpful note into the thread>

cheesesarnie Wed 17-Sep-08 12:09:40

pmsl.im veggie too and dh can beat his own meat,im not doing it.grin

DrNortherner Wed 17-Sep-08 12:10:04

She won't know. Meat is meat as far as women like MamaG are concerned.

Thanks to OMDB and Carmen I did the beating thing too, just last night in fact. Highly therapeutic and worked a treat. A good beating and a quick flash in the pan. The result, a happy dh. grin

DrNortherner Wed 17-Sep-08 12:15:09

What id you beat with? <serouis question?>

A good hard rolling pin. And some cling film.

MamaG Wed 17-Sep-08 12:17:37

God I don't know what sort of steak it is! cow steak I assume grin

BecauseImWorthIt Wed 17-Sep-08 12:20:29

Daft cow. grin

Do you mean rump, sirloin or fillet? Either of those shouldn't need to be beaten (especially fillet) but they do benefit from being marinated - use either a light vinaigrette or squeeze a lemon over the steak - just make sure that you have dried them off before putting them into a very hot pan.

BecauseImWorthIt Wed 17-Sep-08 12:21:42

If you have bought 'frying' or 'minute' steak you shouldn't have bothered then you might need to beat them.

But bear in mind that beating then will also flatten them, make them thinner and they will cook very quickly, so if he likes a rare steak very short cooking will be required.
