Recipe Time Again

From Merle in Australia

lb of Steak – Oyster blade, or Rump

1 packet French Onion Soup

425 can Apricot Nectar.

(according to Merle, a 1 lb can (or anything close to it) would work.

Lay steak flat in baking pan.

Sprinkle soup mix over steak

Then pour Nectar over it.

Bake in covered baking dish, (Use foil if no cover)

Bake for 1 ½ hours.- - in moderate oven.

As you can see, I like simple and easy recipes, not ones

with 27 ingredients !!

Note from Ann: I googled Oyster blade and it wasn't very specific. I'd think you could use any of the inexpensive cuts of steak.

Note from Ann: I'll be grateful to any Australian visitor who tells me the size of a 425 can. I noticed it after I posted and googled. Nothing happening there.

Alissa said...

425 cans of Apricot Nectar?! That's alot of nectar! ;-)


Sounds yummy. And so easy!

Sue said...

I saw this on Merle's and it did look quick and easy. No clue on 425!

Madcap said...

My guess is that it's 425 ml.

Autumn said...

sounds yummy, If I had to guess, I would say 32 oz on the nectar..that is usually a big can, and sounds about right for meat..any more than that would be way to much..10-16 is a soup I guess you could use that too..Let us know if you find out for sure what the 425 is

Sarah Elaine said...

I agree with Madcap, 425 ml, which would be just shy of 2 cups.

Atasha said...

I researched for you Ann. Fear not the previous poster was correct. Actually 475 ml = 2 cups. That recipe sounds do-able on this end. I think next week if I'm in the same good mood I was in this week, I will cook it for the husband. Although he mentioned he was craving my lasagne. Argh

I have to catch up on reading your past entries also :-)

Hi Ann, there is 2.2 pound to the kilogram so a can of approx 1 pound would do the trick, one of the good bits of the metric system is that 425 grams is the same as 425 mil.
This type of recipe where the nectar is a garnish rather than an ingredient near enough is good enough BTW.

Merle said...

Dear Ann ~ Thanks for posting this recipe and sorry about the steak and the can size. Three ingedients and 2 caused problems. A can of 16 oz (or one pound) for the nectar and you worked out the steak. I already have Overwhelmed on my blogroll and she asked if I wanted tto submit recipes, but I declined because of the different names we have. I loed
te cicken jokes last post. Take care,
Love, Merle.

PEA said...

I had seen this recipe on Merle's blog and also wondered at the sizes needed....wish all the countries had the same measurements and sizes!! lol

Madcap said...

We all do - except you Americans! ;-)

Madcap said...

I take it back, Pea, I checked your profile and I see you're in Ontario. So let me rephrase -

Seems like the whole world is working in metric except the US!

Overwhelmed! said...

Great recipe, Ann!

Andrea said...

J said...

Sounds pretty darned yummy. Enjoy!

mreddie said...

That sounds good, my Spice uses apricot nectar on a ham when she cooks in her crockery oven cooker - really comes out tasty. ec

425 gram = 0.936964614 pound precisely !!!
Just a standard can or tin in size.
Sounds like a yummy recipe.
Hope it was enjoyed.
Take care, Meow
