Cooking Instructions
Instructions for 2 people (double for 4)
1

Boil a kettle

Peel and finely chop the brown onion[s]

Peel and finely chop (or grate) the garlic

2

Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of olive oil and a knob of butter over a medium heat

Once the butter has melted, add the chopped onion with a pinch of salt and cook for 5-6 min or until caramelised

Once caramelised, add the chopped garlic and cook for 1 min further or until fragrant

3

Dissolve the Knorr chicken stock cube[s] in 700ml [1.3L] boiled water and add the saffron – this is your saffron stock

Once the garlic is fragrant, add the arborio rice and cook for 1 min, stirring to coat the grains in the oil

4

Add the saffron stock a ladle at a time, stirring continuously for 25-30 min or until all of the stock is absorbed and the rice is cooked

Whilst the risotto is cooking, slice the cherry tomatoes in half

5

Once the risotto has been cooking for 15-20 min, heat a separate large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) over a high heat

Pat the sirloin steaks dry with kitchen paper, drizzle them with vegetable oil and season with a pinch of salt on both sides

Once very hot, add the steaks to the pan

For rare, cook for 2-3 min max on each side

For medium-rare, cook for 3-4 min on each side

For medium, cook for 4-5 min on each side

Once the steaks are cooked, transfer them to a plate to rest

6

Once the risotto is done, add the Chinese rice wine, most of the grated Italian hard cheese (save some for garnish!) and the clotted cream

Season with a pinch of salt and cook for 1 min or until the cheese has melted – this is your saffron risotto

7

Combine the balsamic vinegar with 2 tbsp [4 tbsp] olive oil and a pinch of salt in a large bowl

Add the rocket and chopped cherry tomatoes and give everything a good mix up
