36 Lamb Duo with Ticino Polenta and Glazed Vegetables (Finishing®)



- Plates à la carte

In this recipe, we'll show you how quickly and easily you can prepare a lamb variation using

Finishing®, even for large-scale events. Of course you can also use Finishing® to produce this dish for plated banquets; to do so, you'll need a RATIONAL Finishing® system.

You can even prepare all the components one or two days before the event. Here are a few tips on preparing the individual components:

Prepare the braised shoulder of lamb as desired, ideally using

Overnight Cooking. Combine the pan drippings grape juice or with port wine to make a robust lamb jus.

Divide the lamb chops into portions. You can either pan-fry the lamb chops à la minute and add them to the hot Finishing® plates, or prepare them in advance and warm them up using Finishing® as well

(please undercook the chops if preparing them in advance).

Prepare the glazed vegetables so that they still have a slight crunch

(Side Dishes, steam) and cook the Ticino polenta. Store the polenta in a pastry bag. It should be somewhat mushy so that it can be piped decoratively onto the plates.

Now you're ready to plate: First pipe the polenta onto the center of each plate, then lay the braised shoulder of lamb and the vegetables on top (as well as the precooked lamb chops, if applicable). You can store the finished plates in cold storage until your event begins.

Alternatively, you can store the individual components separately and then plate


Now use Finishing® to bring the plates up to serving temperature.

Then glaze the lamb shoulder with the jus and lay the pan-fried lamb chops on top (if not already plated).

, plates à la carte

In this recipe, we'll show you how quickly and easily you can prepare a gourmet fish trio using Finishing®, even for large-scale events.

Of course you can also use Finishing® to produce this dish for plated banquets; to do so, you'll need a RATIONAL Finishing® system.

You can even prepare all the components one or two days before the event. Here are a few tips on preparing the individual components:

For the gourmet fish medallions, we recommend using "Fish", "Grill" settings, roasting the medallions to a core temperature of 54°C and then immediately cooling them to 3°C in the blast chiller. Prepare the saffron velouté as desired using milk and cream.

For the pea purée, steam the peas for around 4 minutes. Then immediately purée them using a mixer or a hand blender, along with around 120 ml cream, salt and mint. Strain through a hair sieve if desired; cool immediately in order to preserve the colour.

For the fingerling carrots or alternative vegetables, use "Side Dishes",

"Steam"; steam them al dente and glaze with a little butter.

Now you're ready to start plating. Put the pea purée in the centre of the plate, then lay the fish medallions and the vegetables on top.

You can store the finished plates in cold storage until your event begins, or else store the individual components separately and then plate à la minute.

Now use Finishing® to warm the plates up to serving temperature.

Add the sauce before serving.

General usage information

Explanation of pictograms

General usage information

Convection (30–300 °C)

The hot air circulated at high speed flows around the food from all sides. The meat protein sets immediately, so it remains wonderfully succulent on the inside. Use the Convection settings to utilize the product’s own moisture and regulate it to one percent accuracy – giving you succulent browned pan-fried meats, fluffy baked goods or perfectly prepared frozen convenience foods.

Convection in the SelfCookingCenter® means:

> Powerful roasting flavor

> Crisp-crusted baked goods

The Convection environment is perfect for baking, roasting, grilling, frying, gratinating or glazing.

General usage information

Steam (30–130 °C)

The high-performance steam generator continually produces hygienic steam, eliminating the long wait times to heat up water-filled pots or boilers. Constant cooking chamber temperatures and maximum possible steam saturation guarantee a uniform and highly gentle cooking process.

Steaming in the SelfCookingCenter® means:

> Short heating up times

> Foods retain their natural colors

> Precise cooking for crisp-tender results

> Natural vitamins and nutrients preserved

The Steaming environment is ideal for stewing, blanching, steaming, poaching, heating through, simmering, scalding, vacuum cooking and preservation.

General usage information


The SelfCookingCenter


’s display always indicates when it is currently preheating. Always stop the preheating process before loading food into the unit. This is the only way to guarantee the initial temperature and humidity that are crucial to the entire cooking process. For example, fresh baked goods will only turn out correctly if baked at an appropriately high temperature from the beginning. And steaks are juiciest when cooked using the SelfCookingCenter starting temperature. With foods that do not require preheating, such as boiled potatoes, the SelfCookingCenter


will immediately prompt you to load the food.

Optimum positioning of the core temperature probe

Placing the core temperature probe properly is crucial to help you reach your desired cooking results. To ensure correct placement:

1. With all products, always position the temperature probe at the thickest point of the product.

Insert the probe into the product at an angle in order to ensure that most of the probe needle is within the product.

2. When preparing smaller pieces of meat, simply insert the core temperature probe into several pieces at the same time.

Optimum positioning of the core temperature probe

3. For poultry and whole fish, always insert the core temperature probe close to the bones.

4. For baked goods that rise during baking, place the core temperature probe vertically in the middle of the product. If necessary, use the positioning aid (e.g., for muffins). This ensures that the core temperature probe will remain secure at all times.

Optimum positioning of the core temperature probe

5. When loading the SelfCookingCenter



products of different sizes, e.g., different pieces of meat, it is generally best to insert the probe into the smallest product. When using cooking processes followed by holding stage

(Overnight Roasting, Braising, or Overnight

Boiling), make sure that the holding stage is long enough that the larger products will reach the desired core temperature as well.

If the cooking process does not have an integrated holding stage, simply use the Continue function to finish cooking the larger pieces. Once the smallest piece is finished, the buzzer will sound, and the small product can be removed. When the door is opened, the Continue button will appear on the display. Insert the core temperature sensor into the next smallest product and press Continue.

Repeat this process as many times as necessary.

6. Mobile oven racks have a ceramic tube designed to hold the core temperature probe; when doing Finishing


with a mobile oven

rack, always place the probe into that tube.

Overnight cooking/Mixed loads

Cooking large meat and poultry products has always required a great deal of supervision work and many years of cooking experience.

With the SelfCooking Center


, you can face these challenges with less worry. Use your



even when you aren’t in the kitchen: its reliable Overnight Cooking function lets you utilise additional production time without adding to your personnel expenses. Overnight Cooking is especially suitable for meat and poultry dishes that require relatively long cooking times. You can also roast, braise or boil different cuts of meat at the same time, in what is known as a mixed load.

Advantages of overnight cooking

> No checking or monitoring

> Especially tender, juicy meats

> Round-the-clock productivity increases your capacity

> Minimizes weight and cutting losses

> Energy savings by using night tariffs

> Gain flexibility by preparing different products of different sizes in a single mixed load

> Exceptional stock quality for top-quality sauces

> Security and hygiene at the touch of a button

Seasoning, breading, marinating

We would like to give you a few recipes and tips related to seasoning, breading and marinating.


You will find tips and recipes in ClubRATIONAL. Simply register at


Many foods can be breaded, such as meats, fish, or vegetables.

Different types of breading can also be used.

Classic examples of these include:

> Bread crumbs

> Sesame

> Corn flakes

> Coconut flakes

Normally, breading can simply be pressed onto a product. One exception to this is breading with bread crumbs if you want the breading to puff up during cooking, e.g., for Wiener Schnitzel. For this type of breading, dip the product into flour, then egg, and then bread crumbs, carefully rolling and turning the product each time.

Seasoning, breading, marinating

It is important not to press the breading on with your hands.

Choosing the right type of fat is crucial to achieving crunchy, golden-brown breading. Options include clarified butter, sunflower oil (or other oils with high smoking points) as well as fats that aid in browning.

To get more intense colour in foods breaded with breadcrumbs, we recommend mixing paprika powder into the breadcrumbs or the fat.

If using smaller amounts of fat, you can brush it onto the breaded food. When using larger quantities, such as in industry catering, we recommend the proven, time-saving method of spraying it on with a spray gun.


Meats were originally marinated to help them keep longer. Nowadays, we mainly marinate to give the meat a special flavour. Any type of meat can be marinated, and when it comes to the ingredients, you can experiment to your heart’s content!

The three main types of marinades are:

> Sour marinades (vinegar, lemon juice or wine)

> Sweet marinades (sugar or honey)

> Oily marinades (using sunflower oil when grilling)

Sour marinades are based on vinegar, wine or lemon juice, blended with a little oil and some herbs and spices. They mainly serve to make meat soft and tender: the acid in the marinade breaks down the connective tissue, making the meat itself

“looser” and tenderer, which is why sour marinades are primarily used for firmer, tougher cuts of meat.

Sweet marinades based on honey and oil (possibly in combination with a little balsamic vinegar or light soy sauce) is mainly suited to light meats and chicken.

Grilling or roasting caramelizes the sugar in the marinade, creating a delicious flavour, especially when the marinade is used on poultry or poultry pieces.

Oily marinades are especially good for grilled meats, such as steaks. Use a good quality oil that is also suitable for frying. The oil can be flavoured with herbs, garlic and spices and brushed onto the meat.

Working with marinades:

Regardless of which type of marinade you are using, the process is always the

same. Start by washing the meat thoroughly and patting it dry.

Marinating times differ depending on the recipe and marinade involved. Fish and chicken do not need to be marinated very long. Steaks, for example, should be marinated in an oily marinade for around 3 to 5 hours at 3 °C.

It is very important to dab the meat dry before grilling or frying!

This is because after marinating, the flavour is in the meat. Any excess marinade would burn and may produce undesirable bitterness. Also important: do not salt the meat until after it has been roasted or grilled.

Another option for marinating meat and fish is using a vacuum process. Vacuum marinating requires only a fraction of the normal time. Steaks, for example, can be marinated in just 3/4 of an hour in this way.

Clean all ingredients and chop them finely, then mix them together with the oil.

General care instructions

Air filter

The SelfCookingCenter


automatically detects when the air filter is clogged or dirty. It will display a service prompt instructing you to clean or replace the air filter. However, we still recommend that you check the filter yourself at regular intervals, and clean it as needed.

Depending on the type of appliance, you may be able to replace the filter on your own, or you may need to have it done by your service partner.

In any case, never run the unit without the air filter in place.

For more information on cleaning and replacing the air filter, please follow the instructions in the relevant chapter of your user manual.

Cooking cabinet seal

You can extend the life of your cooking cabinet seal by cleaning it every day with a non-abrasive soap and a soft cloth. Cleaning the door seal every day prevents it from wearing down faster, and is especially important if you are using the unit continually at high temperatures, using high-level browning settings or primarily preparing foods containing fat and gelatin.

Core temperature probe

Clean the core temperature probe regularly with a damp cloth to remove food residues. This is especially important when you are transferring it from one product to another, as it ensures the probe retains its measurement precision and also prevents possible cross-contamination.

General care instructions

Cooking cabinet door

The glass panes on the cooking cabinet door can be unlocked and swung open when the door itself is opened, so that you can clean the space between them as needed using non-abrasive soap and a cloth or sponge.

Door drip pan

Please clean the door drip pan regularly to prevent the drain from clogging.
