Flour and Stone Recipes

Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Savoury tarts

Will your next baking project be a flaky puff pastry with pumpkin, goat's curd and thyme, or a classic bacon and Stilton tart? As autumn settles in, we're ticking these off one by one.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

Roti canai

Here, we've made the dough in a food processor, but it's really quick and simple to do by hand as well. If the dough seems a little too wet just add a little more flour.

Momofuku's marinated hanger steak ssäm


You'll need

  Hanger steak 2 cups apple juice ½ cup usukuchi (light soy sauce) ½ yellow onion, thinly sliced 5-6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced 1 tsp Asian sesame oil 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper 4 hanger steaks (225gm each)   Accompaniments 1 cup Napa cabbage kimchi, puréed 1 cup ginger spring onion sauce 2 cups short-grain rice, well-rinsed and cooked 2-3 heads Bibb lettuce, leaves separated, well washed, and spun dry To serve: Maldon or other high-quality coarse sea salt

Method

  • 01
  • Make the marinade: Combine the apple juice, soy, onion, garlic, sesame oil and pepper in a large freezer bag (or another container that will snugly accommodate the steaks and marinade) and seal and shake (or stir or whisk) to combine. Add the steaks, seal or cover tightly, and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  • 02
  • Light a good hot fire in your grill.
  • 03
  • Remove the steaks from the marinade (discard the marinade). Grill for 6-10 minutes total for medium-rare, taking care to first char the two flattest sides of the steaks, which should take about 2 minutes per side. Monitor the doneness closely after that – depending on how hot your fire is, they could be cooked in 6-8 minutes. When they’re ready, remove the steaks to a platter and let them rest for at least 5 minutes. More resting time won’t hurt: you can’t overrest steak.
  • 04
  • When ready to serve – sauces are made, lettuce is washed, etc – cut the steaks into 6mm-thick slices, cutting on a slight bias (i.e., your knife at a 15- to 30-degree angle to the cutting board). Serve the steaks flanked by the accompaniments.

This recipe is from the June 2010 issue of Australian Gourmet Traveller.

"When we were thinking about putting a beef ssäm on our menu, we knew the cut would be hanger. The trick: there's only one hanger steak on each cow, and it's not widely available in butcher shops or supermarkets in the States. You can substitute New York strips if you're feeling fancy. The marinade on this steak is almost exactly what my mum uses when she makes kalbi (marinated short ribs), so, like her, we use Mott's apple juice."
