I just tried this recipe last night.. For the first time, I’m introducing red meat to Little B! and she loves it!! I just wanna share the recipes with mommy out there.. I got this one from Annabel Karmel Cooking Book.. So, tried and tested.. approved yummy!!
It’s very easy.. You just need minced beef, butternut squash (as I said before in my previous entry, nak guna pumpkin biaser pun buleh.. butternut squash ni pumpkin omputih), carrot, beef stock (air rebusan tulang daging, it gives the sweetness to the taste but please don’t put salt when you’re making it!), tomato puree (also home-made, blended tomato, fry with onion and shallot until it becomes thicker) and thyme leaves..
Thyme leaves ni tak wajib but many western food uses thyme leaves for red meat, it gives a nice aroma to the food.. I couldn’t find fresh thyme leaves but I found this at the supermarket.. Pokok thyme!! Hahhaha.. kecik jer pasu ni, so I just bought this one.. senang kalu nak masak next time.. what could be more fresh than this, right??
First, what you should do heat up the saucepan with olive oil.. (yeah I use olive oil for all B’s food), the the onion and minced beef. Fry over a medium heat until they start to turn brown.. Step two, just add the butternut squash (or any pumpkin), carrot, beef stock, a little bit of tomato puree and thyme leaves..
Step three, just bring to boil all the ingredients together..
Step four.. blend until smooth to your baby’s liking! Wallaaaaa…. This much of food can last for 3 days for B.. and that is for 6 meals. I froze B’s food and heat it back whenever I need it. I have to do that because I can’t afford to cook everyday. With work and oncall, this method works best for me, easy for daddy when he needs to feed B too..
And that is little B learning how to chew
