Fast and fabulous recipes

Fast, fresh and fabulous – what’s not to like? Here's a preview of the recipes in our February 2015 issue.

Jamaican goat curry

"Goat is the world's most consumed meat and we hardly give it a look in Australia. I adore it in so many different preparations, from South-East Asian dishes through to Italian braises, but my favourite is Jamaican curry with its heady spices," says Evans. "I see spices as nature's medicine cabinet and use them in as much of my cooking as possible. If you can't get your hands on quality goat meat (farmers' markets are a good bet or online), then feel free to substitute lamb or another protein. But if you've never had goat before, I urge you to give it a whirl."

Classic Huxtaburger


You'll need

1.1 kg coarsely minced wagyu beef (see note) 20 cheddar slices 2 tbsp olive oil 10 burger buns, halved For brushing: melted butter 5 vine-ripened tomatoes, sliced 1 iceberg lettuce, leaves separated and coarsely torn To serve: tomato sauce, American-style mustard and mayonnaise To serve: crinkle-cut chips   Dill pickles 75 ml white wine vinegar 45 gm sea salt flakes 2 tsp pickling spice (see note) 1 tsp whole black peppercorns ¼ tsp dill seeds 400 gm baby cucumbers, sliced on a mandolin 3 dill sprigs

Method

  • 01
  • For dill pickles, bring vinegar, salt, pickling spice, peppercorns, dill seeds and 750ml water to the boil in a large saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally to dissolve salt. Add cucumbers and dill, transfer to sterilised jars and refrigerate to pickle (2 days to a week).
  • 02
  • Combine minced beef, 3 tsp sea salt flakes and 1 tsp coarsely ground black pepper in a large bowl and mix with hands to combine well. Divide into 10 patties, flatten out slightly and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Cover and refrigerate until required.
  • 03
  • Heat oil on a large flat grill or frying pan over high heat and cook patties until browned (1-2 minutes), turn and place two cheese slices on each patty, then cook until cheese melts and meat is cooked to your liking (1-2 minutes for medium-rare). Set aside to rest (2 minutes).
  • 04
  • Brush buns with melted butter and grill cut-side down until golden (1 minute).
  • 05
  • Spread bun bases with tomato sauce, top with pickles, then patty, mustard, tomato and lettuce. Spread bun tops with mayonnaise, sandwich burgers and serve hot with chips.

Note At Huxtaburger, owner-chef Daniel Wilson uses Moondarra grass-fed wagyu with a 10 per cent fat ratio. You'll need to begin this recipe at least two days ahead to make the pickles. Minced wagyu is available from select butchers; you may need to order. Pickling spice is available from select delicatessens.
