How Every day Should Start – Good Stuff By The Lake

This  is what we call in Germany a “Bauernfrühstück”, a farmers Breakfast, usually taken around 11.00am.
Cold cuts and/or cheeses, rustic bread and a glass of red vine.

I had this at 10.00am today – Life is Good 🙂

Bon Appetit !   An Guate !

Fussili Col Buco With Venison Bolognese, Vodka And Gorgonzola

>
>
Yesterday  I got some fresh ground venison from a friend visiting from Tennessee.
I am usually not a big fan of game but since he asked me to prep something for dinner, I came up with this dish which turned out to be pretty amazing 🙂
Obviously, if you don’t eat game, you can substitute the venison with any other ground meat. Traditionally, the alcohol to cook game with would be gin (juniper berry flavor), but I don’t drink that stuff so I don’t have it at home. However, vodka and chopped juniper berries did the trick here.

Hans’ Wonder Bread – Best Bread Ever? Nope, But……

>
>
Yesterday  afternoon I prepared some pizza for myself and had some leftover dough. Today I came home late and did not feel like cooking up a storm, so I made this stuffed bread for dinner. I guess I could call it a calzone?, but I am more comfortable with “Stuffed Yeast Bread”.
I ate the whole thing piping hot and I must say: Simply delicious 🙂

Pizza With Mushroom, Gorgonzola, Gruyere, Tomato, Onion & Arugula

>
>
Tonight,  my culinary enthusiasm was a bit limited by my lack of sleep last night.
( I went to sleep early at 11.30 pm, but Bella thought 2.30 am was a good time to get up, so she pestered me until I gave in and took her for a walk at 2.45 am.
Since I had my alarm set for 3.30 am ( busy 1st   day of school ), there was no point of going back to bed afterwards.
So, when I got home at 4.00pm, a quick and easy pizza had to make do for dinner.
( However, quick and easy should not mean crappy ! )
This little gem was far from crappy, on the contrary, I thought it was pretty awesome.
Quick, easy,crispy, tasty, juicy, delicious 🙂

Bone-In Rib Eye, Naan With Gorgonzola, Tomato & Walnut

>

>
This  morning at work Gene and I were talking about steaks and how great a good steak would be for lunch. Well, don’t just talk about it, do it ! S0 I went to the market and bought two great bone-in rib eyes, 80 oz in total weight. After work, straight home and put these babies on the heat, seasoned with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Got fancy with the naan too. Instead of doing the more traditional thing and putting the gorgonzola on the steak, I put it together with walnuts, grape tomatoes, scallions and lot’s of black pepper , then baked them in the oven for about five minutes. This would have been a great meal just by itself, but together with the meat and all the juices the bread soaked up – unbeatable 🙂

Gorgonzola Gratinated Skirt Steak, Tomato & Aparagus On Naan

.
.
Friday  night’s dinner is one of these typical dishes that are only concocted when the hunger for a BIG dinner is already gnawing in our gut’s and nothing small and simple will satisfy the hunger disturbed imagination of what the next meal must be like. So here we go, a dinner that will satisfy even the biggest craving for hearty food 🙂
.

Gorgonzola Gratinated Skirt Steak, Tomato & Aparagus On Naan

Gorgonzola Gratinated Skirt Steak, Tomato & Aparagus On Naan

.


.
Ingredient’s :

Skirt steak,   marinated overnight in soy sauce, sriracha, & garlic paste
Naan,   (substitute with bread of your choice)
Asparagus spears,  (white or green, depending on availability and your preference), buttered and seasoned with kosher salt and cayenne pepper
Tomatoes,   sliced thick, seasoned with kosher salt and cayenne pepper
Scallions,   buttered and seasoned with kosher salt and cayenne pepper
Asiago cheese,   finely grated
Gorgonzola cheese,   crumbled
Kosher salt,
Peanut oil,

Method :

Season steak with kosher salt, dust with a mixture of ap flour, cornstarch, cayene and garlic powder , saute in oil until bloody rare (or your preference. (See note below). Place naan on a baking rack. Top with steak. Sprinkle with asiago. Top with tomato. Sprinkle with asiago . Top with asparagus. Top with gorgonzola. Top with scallions. Broil until gorgonzola is melted and get’s a few golden spots. Remove from broiler, sprinkle with chili flakes. Enjoy a great meal ! 🙂

Note :
Remember the carry-over heat and the step of gratinating. Both will further cook your steak. Since I like most of my beef and lamb steaks to be medium rare, I removed it at bloody rare. By the time it was gratinated and ready to eat, it was a perfect medium rare.
