Herbed Mushroom Flan

You can use a variety of mushrooms and even add in some dried (reconstituted) exotic mushrooms for added flavor and of course some fresh chanterelles would be exceptional. Best of all any flan that doesn’t get eaten can be reheated in the Combi steam and taste just as good as when freshly cooked.

1 tbsp unsalted butter

1 tbsp olive oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

8 oz assorted mushrooms, cleaned and chopped

2 tbsp fresh parsley or

¼ tsp herbs de Provence

1 cup cream

3 large eggs

¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

6  4 oz ramekins or 1 8” tart pan


Heat a medium sized skillet over moderate heat. Add the butter and oil and when the butter has melted increase the heat and stir in the mushrooms. Cook for a few minutes until the mushrooms release their juices then stir in the garlic and parsley or herbs de Provence. Cook for 6 - 8 minutes until the mushrooms have softened. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.

Heat the oven in the Steam mode 100% Humidity + 212 degrees.

Grease each of the ramekins with a little spray oil and place into the perforated pan.

Divide the mushroom mixture evenly between the ramekins, and top them with some parmesan cheese. 

Combine the cream and eggs with a dash of salt and some freshly ground pepper and whisk until well combined. Fill each ramekin ⅔ of the way with the cream and eggs. 

Cook for 25 - 30 minutes until set.

BBQ Pulled Turkey

Turkey pieces slowly braised in a homemade BBQ sauce then pulled off the bone and served with cornbread or soft rolls is a delicious easy dish to prepare and a perfect dish for entertaining. This dish can be cooked covered in Convection or uncovered in the Steam oven.

The homemade BBQ sauce is also key to achieving great flavor with this recipe so begin by preparing the BBQ sauce and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. While the sauce is simmering, season the turkey pieces and set them aside to absorb the flavors. Even though the skin is discarded when shredding the turkey, braising the turkey with the skin on does add to the fat content but most importantly it adds great flavor.

For the BBQ sauce

2 tbsp butter + 1tbs oil

1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

Combine the following ingredients

3/4 cup of apple cider vinegar

¾ cup ketchup

1 Tbsp tomato paste

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp dry mustard powder

2 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup water

For the turkey

2 bone-in turkey thighs or a combination of bone-in  leg and thigh or leg and breast

1 tsp smoked paprika

2 tsp Kosher salt

1 tsp pepper

1 Tbsp chipotle chili in adobo sauce (optional)


A large oven-safe pan or Dutch oven is ideal for preparing the sauce then you can just put the turkey pieces into the sauce and transfer the pan to the oven. Otherwise, prepare the sauce in an oven safe casserole, and add the turkey pieces.

Saute the onions in the butter and oil over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the garlic and cook gently for a few minutes then add the remaining sauce ingredients that you have combined. Simmer over a gentle heat for about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, season the turkey pieces with paprika, salt, and pepper and set aside.

Heat the oven, Convection Bake 325F (163C) or Steam Braising 325F (163C). 

Add the turkey pieces to the BBQ sauce and stir in the Chipotle Chili pepper if using. These peppers add a wonderful touch of smokey heat to the sauce. Place the pan in the oven (covered if using Convection) and cook for 1 ½ - 2 hours until the meat is very tender and easily falls off the bone.

In order to “pull” the turkey remove the pieces from the hot sauce and set aside to cool. Remove the skin, discard the bones and shred the meat by hand or with a fork and knife. Return to the pulled turkey to the sauce and reheat if needed before serving.

Serves 4 - 6
