Surf and turf vegeroni spiral pasta with homemade sauce

Surf and turf vegeroni spiral pasta with homemade cream

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:

Surf and turf vegeroni spiral pasta with homemade cream ingredients

  • Fresh whole squid
  • Aussie beef steaks
  • Enochi mushrooms
  • Fresh white button mushroom
  • Broccoli
  • 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
  • Onions
  • Garlic
  • San Remo Vegeroni Spirals pasta

garlic

My friend started squashing the garlic…

onion

…and chopping up the onions.

marinate beef

While I went to work marinating the Aussie beef with a mixture of Heinz Garlic BBQ sauce…

marinated beef

…before adding in some raw garlic and grinding some McCormick Garlic Pepper Seasoning into it.

massage beef

I also gave it a good massage, Kobe style. This is The Turf (TM).

brocolli

Prepare the broccoli by tearing it into manageable pieces and slice half the button mushrooms while keeping the other half whole.

veggies

Put everything onto a plate – it’s for the homemade sauce. This is supposed to be for the sauce base. Next – seafood!

squid

The squid should be boiled – shake some salt into the water and just chuck the damn sotong into the pot.

desquid

Squid has this cartilage thing inside it so remember to pull it out after you’ve boiled it. This is The Surf (TM).

vegeroni

The next step is to cook the vegeroni spiral pasta in salted water.

stir fry me

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.

stir fry

I used ½ a block of butter and if you want your pasta to taste as good as mine you’ll do the same. ;)

italian herbs

Shake in some Italian herbs to add some delicious hints to your sauce.

cream

Add cream to the entire mixture…

eat cheese

…and chop off half the block of cheese into the pasta sauce.

add cheese

I know, this is not going to win any Heart Healthy (TM) awards but it tastes fucking good okay?

add butter

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!

fry beef

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!

  1. eww… ur squid is gross! burst the whatever-that-is-storing-the-ink huh.
    actually you should have clean it before cooking – pull off the head, cut away the eyes, remove the clear, sharp quill and last, the brown transparent skin. tada!! clean nice squid for cooking :)

  2. food looks yummy, i thought of saying the squid look gross and miserable but was guessing that could probably be the way the ahmoh people do with their squid after all squid ink is getting famous nowadays. i on the other hand would clean my squid as clean and as white as possible as can be seen on my cookblog :))))

  3. Dude, I like your dining table, totally sixthseal style, …now lets show some legs .I remember one of your cooking post with a long legged lenglui sitting across.

  4. HB Dude Man you cooking again? Glad you got an apt. with kitchen at last. I try to save time by chopping up onion, green onions, and other ingredients up and put it in zip lock bags in freezer to use when needed.
    It same for curry vegetable cut up and stick in freezer for busy guy life style. With steaks season it with sauce and spice stick in freeze and defrost in ref.in morning before head to work and night ready at night for cooking.

  5. I was just wondering what that bottle of Absolut was doing among all your ingredients on the table.. Drink n’ cook is somehow safer than drinking and drive huh? =P

  6. HB, glad you are cooking again. I have a easy recipe for Beijing Duck. 1 roast duck brought from shop, Mandarin pancake you can get frozen and slice up green onions. Hoy Sein Sauce or Sweet Bean Paste mix with a little sugar.
    Slice duck meat and skin from bone of duck and keep for later for soup or jook. Heat up pancake and serve with duck meat and green onion.

  9. holey shit, hb!!! that is gross. not the squid, we call it bait, also on the east us coast. ( Cut it into rings and call it calamrie. 12 usd an appetizer) the surf part, well, no I love oysters, shrimp, and my fav- deep water scallops broriled in butter. I have liver problems, ( well, was supposed to die in ’99. what were you doing in ’99). never cared for caviar ( fish eggs). in fact, tastes like , well, shit. I am sitting her trying to think of something that would gross you out…. Liver mush, mayo, soft scrambled eggs…. well I don’t know … but would you believe I like grape jelly on that sandwich? Still, my favrorite dish is cheap mac and cheeese ( the two for buck kind) add two cans of tuna… feed four for 2. I like it, called tuna hot dish. ewwew… God bless, HB….Tom
