Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper

Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper
I have a comment on this comment, then I have a comment for the OP. To Amy: Removing to foil is simply a way to keep the steaks warm whilst resting (FOR 5 MINUTES AT LEAST… ALWAYYYS!). When the OP says remove to foil, he/she doesn’t mean to wrap them tightly. They mean to place them in a plate, and form a loose ‘covering’ of foil. This will simply trap some of the heat and allow it to remain warm, without trapping too much moisture. To the OP and to anyone else who decides to try ‘flambe’: It is important to note: When you add cognac or any other high proof liquour to a hot pan, then ignite, you are not burning the alcohol itself, per se. - Never light alcohol while there is an open flame/heat source. - Notice how in the OP, they remove the pan from the stove and then light. - Keep a heavy lidded pan nearby, just in case things Do go awry (if you follow the first 2 tips, they won’t) - Always have at least an ABC rated fire extinguisher within arm’s reach

Epic Fish Tacos Every night this week, I have dreamt I was on a beach. White sands, clear blue water, frozen margaritas and the ultimate holiday luxury… fish tacos. There is honestly nothing better than sitting down to a vast table of salty, crunchy, gooey, citrusy fish tacos. Before retiring for a long snooze in the sun.I first discovered them on a trip to Harbour Island earlier this year and have been hooked ever since. Now, seeing we can't all go to the beach, I thought I'd bring the beach to us! This recipe may sound like it takes a lot of work, but honestly it really doesn't and if you're cooking this for someone special, you are defiantly getting lucky tonight!

The Baked Mac and Cheese My favorite thing to eat, hands down, is noodles. Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai... whatever way you make it, I like it. But mac and cheese is high up there on the list, especially baked mac and cheese. Is there anything more comforting? First things first: cook the pasta. I always sneak a few into my mouth after draining it.

Cooking For Others: Momofuku Pork Bo Ssam There are a lot of reasons I was not a Momofuku early adopter, and living across the street from Ssam Bar for a year is not one of them. Mainly, there was the vegetarian issue: most everything at Momofuku is heavy on the pork. But there was also the line-out-the-door issue. Artichoke bottoms with pasta and shrimp This dish (concocted at the spur of the moment) reminded me of a conversation I had with a foodie friend in Beirut; we were discussing artichokes and that exquisite Lebanese dish of stuffed artichoke bottoms with minced lamb and yogurt; I mentioned I used frozen bottoms imported from Egypt. His reaction was: “What? You are supposed to get fresh artichokes and (slave over) peel them and clean them up and then get their bottoms” is what he said. Yeah, right! I will do that when I have a kitchen helper 24/7. (Kitchen help is widely available in Lebanon)

Sticky Balsamic Ribs OK, Folks. No joke, these are the best ribs ever!! I always look at reader reviews when I choose a recipe. broccoli parmesan fritters Last week, it was pointed out to me that among the 750 recipes in the archives, there is but a single recipe that utilizes broccoli. Just one! (It’s a great one, though.) For comparison, there are 11 recipes that use cauliflower and 26 with mushrooms. What terrible oversight could have led to this?

White Pizza with Spinach and Tomatoes With my last pizza creation, my chicken teriyaki pizza, I broke my pizza stone. I had got that stone from Pampered Chef a few years ago, and have never been thrilled with the results. I am kind of glad it broke, but it’s not like I intentionally threw it on the floor or something. I didn’t carelessly toss it in the sink, or even slam it on the counter.
