Sauteed Apple with Dried Beef, Manchego Cheese and Olive Oil Ice Cream

Sauteed Apple with Dried Beef, Manchego Cheese and Olive Oil Ice Cream on StarChefs.comYield: 1 Servings

Ingredients:

  • 1 Granny Smith apple
  • 30 grams dried beef
  • 20 grams cured Manchego cheese
  • 1 liter extra-virgin olive oil

Method:
Emulsify the olive oil in a Thermomix by applying 3 spins of the turbo. Freeze in a Pacojet beaker and process just before serving.

Cut beef and cheese into very thin slices, about 5-centimeters wide so they fit into a 6- centimeter baking tin. Cut them just before plating to avoid them drying too much.

Cut the apple lengthwise into 1-centimeter wide strips. Remove the core and sear on a griddle until they turn golden brown.

To Assemble and Serve:
Place the apple on a plate inside a cake ring with the slices of cheese and dried beef on top. Remove the ring and add a scoop of ice cream on top. Garnish with chervil.
