It’s nearly time to break out the baking trays at the Harvey Norman Flagship Store in Tallaght yet again as DJ, comedian, TV chef and all-round wunderkind Marcus O’Laoire is joining us for a fun-filled cooking demonstration this Saturday, February 10th!
Marcus is probably better known for his stand-up comedy these days but thankfully for us he is just as passionate about cooking as he was during the early days of his career as a TV chef.
Marcus will be in-store at the Harvey Norman Flagship store on Greenhills Road in Tallaght this Saturday, February 10th, from 12pm to 3pm to teach us some professional cooking tips and hopefully a joke or two!
As this is a cooking demonstration you can expect to taste plenty of delicious samples cooked by Marcus himself, and our staff will be on hand to help with any questions you may have about cooking appliances big and small.
To get us all in the mood for Saturday’s demonstration, Marcus has kindly provided us with one of his most beloved recipes for you to try at home.
Get cooking and we’ll see on Saturday!
Argentinian Steak Flatbreads
For the steak
Steak of choice. I like ribeye or onglet
For the flatbreads
350 g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
350g natural yoghurt
For the chimmichurri
1 head of garlic, peeled and minced
1 chilli, diced
2 tbsp red wine vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
mint – chopped
parsley – chopped
For the flatbreads, combine flour and baking soda in a bowl and add yoghurt. mix them until they come together and then turn onto a founder surface and knead for about a minute. to cook these, pop them into golfball sized pieces and flatten them out to about 3mm thick and cook them in a pan or on a plancha.
For the chimmichurri, it couldn’t be simpler. Combine all your herbs, chopped garlic, chilli and seasoning before adding the vinegar and lemon juice and adding the olive oil, mixing to combine. this is an amazing sauce with any grilled meats!
To cook your steak, make sure you have a ripping hot plancha, season it with salt and pepper and rub with some oil and cook to your desired doneness.
To serve, cook up a flatbread and a steak, slice it thinly, lay the steak on the bread and top with chimmichurri! Enjoy.
