It’s half term next week, and despite writing down dates for hubby to book his holiday this time last year, somehow October half term was omitted from his list of dates he booked. Instead of telling me of his blunder, he has attempted to fix the mistake himself so he can still have next week off with Miss A.
To do this he is working a lot this week, and it means I am having to be inspired by eating with Miss A, or a meal for one. We had bought some nice lamb steaks at the weekend to eat, and I wasn’t wasting one on Miss A, so I had a quick scour around for a marinade and decided to jazz up my lamb steak with some balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, mustard, and rosemary.
After letting the steak marinade for an hour or so in the fridge, I decided tonight would be the perfect opportunity to use my new pan to cook it in.
Ozeri Green Earth Pan is a non stick frying pan which is more durable and non stick than other pans. As I got it out of the box, I realised just how heavy it was. Despite being only 20cm in diameter, and appearing quite small, the pan packs some punch in weight terms.
Having a busy family means we rarely spend a lot of money on kitchen items, as clumsy hands break, scratch and drop when washing up and putting away. I have decided that this pan will stay pristine, and will NOT get scratched. To prepare my new pan, a small coating of oil was required, but not too much as this can make the food stick.
With my lamb well marinaded, I heated up the pan with just a smattering of the marinade to see when it was ready to add the meat.
Just a few minutes on each side and my steak was done thanks to the magnetized bottom which ensures even cooking without any hotspots. I was very impressed with the non stick. Despite the lack of oil, my steak cooked well and evenly and didn’t stick at all.
I did wonder about the cleaning after removing the pan as the rosemary had managed to attach itself to the meat juices.
I was amazed to see how easy it was to clean. I let the pan cool down while I enjoyed my dinner and went back to it afterwards. Literally a wipe over with the cloth and it was clean again. I almost wanted to video it to show how easy it was.
My only negative for the pan is the price. I think it’s worth every penny at £24.99 but it’s more than our budget would allow for a 20cm pan.
I enjoyed my lamb on a bed of noodles with some rocket.
