For years, busy week nights have been any home chef’s least favourite time in the kitchen. You’re desperate to get home and whip up a delicious, healthy meal for your family, but you’re not sure how you’ll get flavoursome, hearty home-cooked food on the table before you fall into bed.

Never fear – at the rescue is a list of our favourite quick family recipes that take under 30 minutes to prepare and cook, and will still impress even the most tired tastebuds.

Preheat your NEFF oven, brush up on some time-saving kitchen hacks and start stirring – your time starts, now:

Quick Beef Stroganoff

Simmering with the rich flavours of red wine and scotch fillet steak, this fast recipe is a lifeline for any busy cook. Steam some fresh vegetables as you go, and you’ll have a sophisticated, indulgent family dinner on the table in no time. Who knew that you could tackle such a complex dish in only 20 minutes?

Lamb Korma in 30 minutes

Most curries taste best when they’ve been simmering for hours, letting the spices mature and the texture soften. So it’s not every day that we advocate for a fast recipe, but this quick lamb korma still somehow maintains the rich flavours and textures of its traditional origins – without all the time-consuming steps in between.

Steamed trout fillets on kaffir lime leaves

With a NEFF steam oven, you can make these healthy and tasty steamed trout fillets in under 30 minutes. Simply place the fish onto the fragarent kaffir lime leaves and let the oven do the work for you, bringing the taste of Thailand to your home kitchen in just a few minutes.

Mediterranean meatball sandwich

Forget grilled cheese – this 30 minute meatball recipe will turn any toasted sandwich into a family favourite. Simple combine lamb mince, garlic, oregano, egg and onion to craft your meatballs, and layer with fresh passata, grilled vegetable slices and cheese on crusty bread rolls for the perfect mid-week dinner.

Fried salmon with curried almonds

Light, zesty and easy enough to throw together after a long day at work, this mediterranean fast recipe will even suit a more sophisticated evening – without tipping the hourglass over. In only 30 minutes, you can have a NEFF-approved seafood dish on the table, packed with nutrients and bursting with flavours and textures from the crunchy curried almonds.
