Kids meal: real macaroni & cheese, minute steaks, veggies

Forget fake packet macaroni and cheese full of nasty additives and preservatives. This 3 ingredient Mac & Cheese is as easy to make as it sounds!
Servings: 2 -4


For the Mac & Cheese:

  • 150 g macaroni pasta
  • 60 g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 tsp white pepper

For the Minute steaks and veggies

  • 500 g veal or beef schnitzel steaks
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 carrot sliced
  • 1 zucchini sliced
  • handful of green beans trimmed


To make the mac & cheese:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and drop in pasta.
  • Stir and cook for 8-10 minutes (or according to packet instructions). Drain then return back to pot.
  • Add milk, cheese and pepper and stir continuously until the cheese melts and sauce thickens.
  • That's it - mac and cheese is ready!

In the meantime, prepare the steaks:

  • Cut steaks into palm-sized pieces. Dust with flour.
  • Heat a little butter in a pan until bubbling.
  • Cook steaks for just under a minute on each side, they will cook further while resting and will remain soft and succulent.

To serve:

  • Serve mac & cheese as a side to your meat and veg, with an extra grating of cheese.


I like to cook my veggies in the same pot to save on water and washing up. Remove veggies with tongs when the pasta is al dente. Drain away the water and return pot to heat.
