FRIDAY MAY 28 2021 LIFESTYLE 41 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA peas and mash. Special occasions called for a roast with Yorkshire puddings also re-created by Moran. Today, a new crop of Stefanovic babies Karl and wife Jasmines daughter Harper recently turned one, Peter and Sylvia have just welcomed their second child, while Tom and Jenna also have two young children has refocused the Stefanovic brothers on food and family. We love get-togethers, sharing stories around plates, and having young kids at the same time changes the dynamic, says Karl. Until the next Stefanovic Sunday cook-off, the jury is out over who claims the kitchen king title, although there isnt much doubt in Karls mind. I do a fair bit of winning, he says. Sibling harmony is about accepting that one of us has to be the winner and never getting too big for your breeches. Ive definitely got the biggest breeches.

Recipes from Season 2 of Matt Morans Kitchen Tales SERVES 4. PREP 5MIN. COOK 45MIN METHOD T HEYVE made their name in front of the news camera and behind it but now the Stefanovic brothers are earning their stripes as a foodie family. Youngest brother Tom is first to make a career change, quitting his job as a cameraman to join wife Jenna Dinicola on her familys almond farm, Mandole Orchard. Now, journalists Karl and Peter are cooking up aspirations of owning a hole-in-the-wall eatery serving topnotch coffee, food and alcohol. Pete and I have thought about it, says Karl. I love serving people and love the dynamic inside restaurants. In the meantime, the pair will content themselves with Sunday afternoon cook-offs, building on the sibling rivalry present throughout their media careers. Its a pretty tight race, says Karl. They tend to be recipes that take a while and are pretty epic. Mums leg of lamb is a dish Ive enjoyed perfecting. I reckon I could give Matt Moran a run for his money. There was no shortage of brotherly ribbing when the trio recently joined chef Moran on his YouTube series Kitchen Tales. They were also surprised to enjoy an old vegetable nemesis brussels sprouts fried to perfection by Moran. While Karl and Tom would dutifully gulp down their greens as children, Peter was more creative. He began hiding them under his cutlery, recalls Karl. Mum even found some fermented sprouts in a vase one day. Growing up in a working-class Brisbane neighbourhood, money was tight in the Stefanovic household, and the siblings praise their mum Jennys ability to make do. Her tuna and rice with a side of Smiths crinkle cut chips remains one of Peters favourite dishes, while Karl recalls her grilled lamb chops with canned Brothers in the kitchen Chef Matt Moran, second from right, with the Stefanovic brothers, Tom, Peter and Karl on his YouTube series Kitchen Tales.

PREP 10MIN. COOK 20 MIN 1 Place a medium saucepan on a medium heat. Add vegetable oil and sesame oil. Once warm, add the julienned ginger and eschalots. Cook, stirring often, until eschalots and giner are caramelised, then add the chopped garlic and cook for a further 3-4min. 2 Once the garlic has caramelised, add in the soy sauce, oyster sauce and sugar. Cook for 10-12min until the sauces have combined and thickened slightly. 3 Remove the saucepan from the heat and discard half of the oil. Add in the rice vinegar and the water, and stir through. Allow the sauce to cool before using. 4 Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil, place in the whole brussels sprouts and cook for 10 mins or until the sprouts are just tender. Strain from the water and place on a tray to steam dry. Once the sprouts have cooled slightly cut each in half lengthwise, and place on to paper towel to allow to dry completely. 5 For the brussels sprouts, if you have a fryer, preheat to 170C or place a large saucepan on a medium heat and fill halfway with the canola oil. Using a thermometer, bring the oil to 160C170C. Add the halved brussels sprouts and cook for 4-5min until golden brown and crispy. Remove from the oil and place on to paper towel to drain excess oil.
