Everyone Excited At The Cook-Off Challenge

Leading up to the food fair promotion, my bloggers' friends and I were invited to participate in a Bloggers 'Cook-Off' Challenge organized at Berjaya University College led by Executive Chef Krishnan. We have the pleasure of Chef Krishnan demonstrating three recipes and sharing cooking tips on how to cook the top grade New Zealand Mussels and Greenlea Beef.

At this event, I also learned that Greenlea is one of the biggest meat exporters in New Zealand. Humble beginnings from a little butcher shop in Gisborne, the 80 years business has grown to a global beef exporter. Now, Greenlea is known to offers only pure NZ Grassfed beef from their farms to your plate. Greenlea takes pride in what they produce, and believe that 100% grass fed beef is the best in the world!

Great To Be Cooking With Pretty Blogger, Elana Khong

For the 'Cook-Off' Challenge, I was excited to team-up with fellow blogger, Elana Khong and we both worked hand-in-hand to prepare two simple and delicious dishes of Stir-fry Greenlea Beef With Onion & Capsicum and Cheese Baked New Zealand Green Mussel in mere 30 minutes. 

Since the Greenlea beef is packed chilled in 150 grams packaging and cut into bite-size strips thus making cooking so much easier for those looking to prepare simple stir-fry dishes. Apart from that, we need not clean the beef, so it's pretty convenient thus saving lots of precious time for any busy cooks at home.

Talley's Green-lipped Mussels

On the other hand, the New Zealand's seafood products of Green-lipped Mussel has been cleaned and whole cooked, all we need to do is thaw them, remove the beard (byssal threads), lightly seasoned and topped with our favourite sauces or toppings such as cheese, herbs or spices prior to serving.
