Finding comfort in her family: Taylor Swift was seen leaving Mastros Steakhouse after having  dinner with her brother Austin  on Thursday night.

 What would she choose from the menu though would it be from the steak menu a be a plate with Petite Filet 8oz or a Filet 12oz or  from the seafood menu  of

  • Chilean Sea Bass
  • Big Eye Tuna Sashimi Style
  • Scottish Salmon Fillet
  • Pacific Swordfish
  • Alaskan Halibut
  • Alaskan King Crab Legs
  • Twin Lobster Tails or
  • Live Maine Lobster
Whatever she chose there is not a dollar sign on the menu anywhere!  I will then make up the menu that she may have ordered…..

Beef Carpoccia

  • 250g beef fillets , you’ll need a nice thick piece of centre cut
  • a handful of rocket leaves
  • parmesan or Grana Padano, shaved with a potato peeler
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 1 lemon , juiced
  • ½ tsp English mustard

Beef carpaccio

  1. Put the beef into the freezer for 30 minutes to firm it up and make it easier to slice.
  2. Meanwhile, to make the dressing, put the egg yolks in a blender or mini processor (or use a hand whisk) and add the olive oil in a steady stream. Season with lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper and mix well.
  3. Take the beef out of the freezer. Using a very sharp, large knife, cut slices as thinly as you can. Lay these on a plate and cover them with clingfilm as you cut to stop them colouring. If you put a layer of baking parchment or clingfilm between the layers you’ll easily be able to separate them out easily later.
  4. To serve, plate the beef slices on a platter or individual plates, heap some rocket leaves in the middle and drizzle the dressing around the edge. Finish with parmesan shavings.
