Before you start

A mandolin will make slicing the carrots easier.

Method

  1. Prepare the carrots: Slice into thin rounds (3-4 mm).
  2. Heat the butter and oil in a pan over medium heat, taking care not to let them burn. Add the rounds. Cook 5 min uncovered, stirring frequently.

These were great and disappeared very quickly off plates! I guess my family preferred these to the normal steamed carrots! I splashed some fresh squeezed orange juice in after sautéing them to simmer with. Adds a little punch of flavour.
