Here is a dinner that was supposed to make you less stressed or I guess more calm…

It worked for me.

It is a 3-1/2oz 100% grass fed steak cut, over spring greens with a side of sweet potato fries (I subbed yellow potatoes in this recipe since the grocery store was out of sweet potatoes).

Here’s how it went down. (do it your way without a fixed recipe)

Cut the potato into fry sized peaces. Mix in a mixing bowl with 3 tbl spoons of olive oil, pepper and salt. Bake in an oven till done to your liking, turning them once half way through the process.

While the fry’s cook. Take some catsup and mix it with curry powder. Put it to the side. The fry’s should take about 20 min at 420 degrees.

Start in with the steak. Here is how I personally cook this type of steak. Rub in a tsp of oil on all surfaces of the steak with salt and pepper (and any other seasoning u love the taste of.)

Stick it on a very hot frying pan and and time each side evenly so it cooks evenly on top and bottom. I personally count 30 seconds for each turn/flip until I get to the desired color. Press down the steak to the pan to get a good sear. A weight is the best option. During the turns, rub a quick stoke of butter on each side now and again. I also rub and sear a few sprigs of rosemary on all the surfaces while it cooks. I go through 2 in this stage.

After you have reached your perfect cooking color, take the steak off the pan and let it rest. Rub a halved clove of garlic over each surface (1 clove total) and leave it resting under the steak along with a new sprig of rosemary. Also take a few quick stokes over each surface with a pad of butter and finally, LIGHTLY drizzle olive oil over the surfaces of the steak while it rests. Do all this right after you take it out of the pan and after it is done let it rest while you prep the rest of the plate.

Get your plate and put the spring greens down with a light drizzle of Balsamic vinaigrette. On the side put your curry spiced catsup and a side of blue cheese dressing if you prefer (chose this dressing as well since we didn’t have blue cheese crumbles that would go on top of the steak and salad).

Now pull out your fries and place them on the plate.

Now julian your steak and put it either of top of the salad like I did or to the side. Now you see that steak juice on the plate or board you rested your steak on. That is your liquid gold. Pour that on top of the steak you just placed (you don’t have to of course… wimp). You might not like it on the salad… I do.

There you go.
