MasterChef Malaysia Details

MasterChef is a worldwide phenomenon. A cooking reality show, that although doesn’t allow viewers to vote, has still broken viewership records in US and Australia. MasterChef is a success because not only is Food something we are all very passionate about but the show only allows amateur cooks to compete. Malaysians who love cooking but never had a chance to really showcase their skills and be appreciated, now get the opportunity! Get ready for the MasterChef phenomenon to take over Malaysia on 22nd October 2011!

And since I did not get the chance to join Masterchef Malaysia due to my crazy schedule a couple of months back, imma come out with a BANG with Malaysia's First Blogger Masterchef! So this doggy gonna show you how to prepare one of his favorite meals! RAWR!!!

First...get doggyjames' favorite doggy biscuits and put them nicely on a bowl...


Its supposed to be human food innit? Scrap the doggy treats idea then :p

Here you go then, human food. Here's doggyjames' take on steak & salad, one of my tastiest personal culinary inventions :)

Ribeye Steak on top of a bed of French Dressing Salad and Meehun.

What you need:

1 piece of steak (you can use your favorite cut of steak, I prefer Ribeye :)
1 serving of meehun or vercimelli (1 handful per person should be enough)
Rocket leaves
Cherry tomatoes
Spring Onions
clove of garlic
red chilli
Cracked blackpepper
Olive oil
Balsamic Vinegar

The recipe calls for all 3 major components to be stacked up and arranged together accordingly, namely the Salad, Meehun & Steak.

So, lets start with the steak.

We do not need to marinate the steak much since I prefer to have the meat to have its OMMPH!!! beefiness. So just layer the meat with a simple mixture of 3 parts olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar, and then put on a generous amount of salt and cracked black pepper and let it sit for 5 minutes. (you can go to the toilet if you want....wait...better not)

Heat up the pan and apply a generous amount of olive oil, its OK even if you think there are too much oil, we are going to reuse the oil later on. Gently put the steak into the pan and cook according to your prefer doneness. I like mine medium well, so its 6 minutes on one side, and 3 minutes on another. Here's an easy method to test the doneness of your steak with your hands.
No, don't put your hands into the oil....

After the steak is done, take it out and let it rest for about 5-10 minutes so the natural juices in the steak can be kept inside the meat....DO NOT KACAU THE MEAT DURING THE COOLING PERIOD!!!

Next, Let's do the meehun.

Use the left over oil from the steak and add in 1/4 onion, a clove of garlic and 1 red chilli, all finely cut so the flavours could truly showcase themselves. You can add more oil if you want but that's strictly according to your taste. Try and scrap most of the charred bits from the bottom of the pan to extract more beefy goodness. (No need to wash pan, doggyjames likes hehehe)

Next, add in the cooked meehun
and stir fry them together. You can then add in salt or soy sauce for more taste and right at the end, add in the finely chopped spring onions and coriander. At this point, TRY not to curi makan...I know its hard but handcuff yourself at this point if you must.

Lastly, lets do the salad.

Wash and dry your rocket leaves and cherry tomatoes (you can use any salad leaves you want, its a free country!) and place them into a large bowl. The dressing are made stirring 4 parts olive oil to 1 part balsamic vinegar, juice of 1/2 a lemon, lemon zest, basil, and just a pinch of salt and mix them well. Mix the dressing into the leaves and tomatoes and leave them there for 1-2 minutes while you prepare the last item which marries everything together...the poached egg! :D

OK...Seriously I suck at poaching eggs and this is my 3rd egg...pfft.

Lastly...5 minutes before eating...its time to put them together!!! WOOF WOOF!!! XD

First salad and meehun...

Then slice the steak into stripes...and for the chef the rest hehehe.

Then just place the steak and poached egg with a dash of paprika on top!!! :D

OK 1 more step...MAKAN!!!
