Steak House Dinner
Pull it out of the fridge about 30 mins prior to cooking. Pat dry and season both sides w salt and pepper.
On high heat drizzle a little oil and sear one side of the stead for 3 minutes. Don't touch it! Flip and do the other side for 3 minutes. Top w a pat of butter on top of each and throw in a 450 degree oven for 7 minutes. Take it out and cover w foil for 10 minutes. Sprinkle w parsley.
In that pan you just used I added 2 handfuls of sliced mushrooms, with a little garlic and chopped shallots. Sauté until soft, then deglaze with some wine. Whatever you have. I had a bottle of chardonnay already opened, go 2-3 circles around the pan and allow to reduce.
Heat butter on high heat in a pan. Add scallops and allow to sear, takes just a few minutes on each side. I just seasoned w salt and pepper....they were delicious!
2 sausages links, cut into bite sized pieces
15 sprouts, cut in half, cleaned
salt and pepper
Over med high heat, brown the sausage. I like it really brown, almost burnt.
Once the sausage has a little color, add the brussel sprouts and continue to cook, stirring occasionally. Season w salt and pepper, liberally! Once they are to your desired doneness, eat um!
I like them soft, but not mush, this isn't broccoli.
Dinner was delicious, my cut of meat was the "cheap one" so I got the nicer ones this shopping trip. I'm going to try the broiler next time and see the difference.
