I apologize for being a blogger missing in action lately. I had business to attend to, places to go, and friends to see. Now that things are back to normal - are they ever really? - I'll be getting back into my posting routine. I've got a few special features planned in the near future, so look forward to those!
I know, I promised you a special feature when I restarted this blog. The wine event I had planned to cover turned into a rainy night. While I had the constitution to taste, I didn't have the spirit to stand out in the rain to photograph. Such is the life of an ambitious food blogger.
So today, as I am just getting back into the swing of things. I'm going to bring you a recipe that I typed up several months ago. I was going to submit this to a televised cooking contest but the website wasn't cooperating. I never did submit it. I'm sharing it with you instead.
I only have one picture to give you this evening. The contest required a close up of the food and a picture of me standing behind the food (and you really don't want to see that one). I guess they just wanted to see that I wasn't a werewolf or something before they "cast" me. Since I never applied for the show, now the producers will never know that not only am I NOT a werewolf, but I don't even play one on TV.
Okay, enough chatter. Let's eat!
Add potato and Brussels sprouts to a pot of water. Bring to boil and reduce to simmer, about 20 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
Add cooking spray to cast iron or heavy skillet (oven safe). Season steaks with remaining salt and the black cracked pepper, pressing the seasoning into the steaks. Add to hot pan. Cook on one side for about four minutes. TURN OVEN OFF. Add hot pan with steaks to oven and set timer for five minutes for medium rare. Let steaks rest for five minutes before slicing.
While steaks are resting, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil to the same pan that you sautéed the onions. Add mushrooms and thyme and cook for three minutes.
Note: Not an endorsement for the mayo and no product was supplied to blogger. You can substitute any brand you wish, but opt for an olive oil based mayo for best results.
