GINATAANG TAMBAKOL STEAK (Tuna Steak cooked in Coconut Milk)

GINATAANG TUNA STEAKS © BUSOG! SARAP! 2014

It has been along time since I have posted a Filipino Recipe….so to make amends, here’s a simple recipe for Ginataang Tambakol Steak (Tuna Steak cooked in Coconut Milk).  I’ve added a few kamias to create a small souring effect on the overall taste of the sauce.  I find that this dish is quite good  when you break up the tuna steak and tossed in cooked pasta or in a mix salad and use the sauce as the dressing. I do hope you give this Busog! Sarap! recipe a try!

 

GINATAANG TAMBAKOL STEAK (Tuna Steak cooked in Coconut Milk)

~ Dry your sliced Tuna by blotting out the surface with kitchen paper towel.  Sprinkle the coarse salt all over the Tuna Steak, set aside.  In a large wok/pan, heat (medium high) your cooking oil and sauté the garlic, ginger and onions till fragrant.  Using your wok flat ladle, move your sautéed mixture to one side of your pan.

~ Remove lid and season your Tuna Steak with the fish sauce and pepper.  Flip over the fish steak to mix in the seasoning well with the sauce, and let it simmer for 1-2 mins. before removing the Tuna Steak, kamias and chillies.  I’ve separated the Tuna Steak into its quarter segments.

~  With the remaining sauce on the pan, keep it simmering and add in your coconut cream, let sauce reduce in half.  Once the sauce has been reduced, pour it through a fine sieve to get rid of the solids.

~ Pour the sieved sauce into a clean pan and let it simmer once again, place back your Tuna Steak quarters, kamias and chillies.  Turn off your stove and leave the pan with a lid on to further cook your Ginataang Tambakol Steak (Tuna Steak in Coconut Milk).

~ To serve, ladle out your Tuna Steaks quarters first then topped with your kamias and chillies then pour the sauce all over the fish pieces.

 

BEST WITH:  Fresh Steamed Rice or you can break a Tuna Steak quarter into pieces and add into your tossed salad or pasta with a good drizzle of the sauce as the dressing.

NOTES:

  • You can use smaller whole tuna (gutted & rinsed), cut them into 2 pieces (pls. use total weight of 1 kg of fish).
  • Serves 4

"Learning by Doing and Not Teaching”……

Learning by Doing and Not Teaching (PINEAPPLE) by AIS

I saw this YouTube link from my FB newsfeed….it was inspiring and and also a good example if you want to start a business.  Like in the video you have to learn like Nin…..to observe, analyse, try out, be innovative and face problems with courage.  This is also what I’ve been trying to show my daughter, Ms M since she was small and to my 2 sons.

Such a good video that I have to post it to Busog! Sarap! and it got fruits too, so it’s counted as food related, don’t you think?

BODEGA GRILL, BROWNS PLAINS

Last Sunday the TRIBE visited another Filipino Food Establishment that recently opened in Browns Plains called Bodega Grill.  I’ve booked a table just in case and requested a highchair for our energetic youngest, Samboy earlier that day. What happened the previous day, happened again this day….the TRIBE were late again due to the fact we’ve circled the area a couple of times before finding the place.  Thankfully it was not that busy when we arrived at Bodega Grill.

Bodega Grill has a very simple decor and casual dining/takeaway atmosphere.  When we arrived we were happily greeted by the lady owner and quickly shown to our reserved table with our requested highchair….A+ on my scoreboard!

COCOMANGO (FILIPINO) RESTAURANT, REDCLIFFE

During this long weekend here in Brisbane, the TRIBE spent half of the Saturday in Mooloolaba for some needed day out on the beach, the weather was absolutely fantastic. We got our dose of Vit. D, sea air and sand everywhere.  While snacking on a Fisherman’s Basket Meal around 4pm, I’ve convinced Mr H to drive to Redcliffe before heading home to Brisbane to check out the newly opened Filipino Restaurant that I’ve seen popping details in some of the Brisbane Filipino based FB Pages.  We already prepaid the Gateway Toll fee might as well kill two birds with one stone, I say. So I called Cocomango for a 5:30-6pm A la carte booking and reserved a table for the TRIBE with a highchair.
