I just moved into my new studio apartment with cooking facilities and decided to break in the kitchen by whipping something up. This inspiration made us go to the nearest hypermarket to pick up some stuff for pasta. I wanted a hybrid seafood and red meat dish – squid and beef, so here’s the surf and turf pasta!
You will need:
- Fresh whole squid
- Aussie beef steaks
- Enochi mushrooms
- Fresh white button mushroom
- Whipping cream
- Perfect Italiano Mozzarella cheese slab
- Tatura butter
- McCormick Garlic Pepper Seasoning Grinder
- McCormick Italian Herbs
- McCormick Season All salt seasoning
- Heinz Garlic BBQ sauce
- San Remo Vegeroni Spirals pasta
My friend started squashing the garlic…
…and chopping up the onions.
While I went to work marinating the Aussie beef with a mixture of Heinz Garlic BBQ sauce…
…before adding in some raw garlic and grinding some McCormick Garlic Pepper Seasoning into it.
I also gave it a good massage, Kobe style. This is The Turf (TM).
Prepare the broccoli by tearing it into manageable pieces and slice half the button mushrooms while keeping the other half whole.
Put everything onto a plate – it’s for the homemade sauce. This is supposed to be for the sauce base. Next – seafood!
The squid should be boiled – shake some salt into the water and just chuck the damn sotong into the pot.
Squid has this cartilage thing inside it so remember to pull it out after you’ve boiled it. This is The Surf (TM).
The next step is to cook the vegeroni spiral pasta in salted water.
While you’re waiting it to become al dente start stir frying the garlic, onion, enochi mushroom, broccoli, and button mushroom in LOTS OF BUTTER.
I used ½ a block of butter and if you want your pasta to taste as good as mine you’ll do the same. 😉
Shake in some Italian herbs to add some delicious hints to your sauce.
Add cream to the entire mixture…
…and chop off half the block of cheese into the pasta sauce.
I know, this is not going to win any Heart Healthy (TM) awards but it tastes fucking good okay?
Your pasta should be done by now so drain and put in a healthy amount of butter. Be generous! Go kung fu on the butter block and melt it in the pasta!
Got beef? Don’t look at me. Fry the goddamn thing. Put the heat on low and sear it so you won’t overcook it.
Now it’s time to chow down! Pour the pasta sauce into the butter saturated pasta, add in the beef and squid and serve!
Serving suggestion: Grind some pepper on top of the butter and eat while hot! 🙂
