If you're a regular reader, you know that I often tend toward the exotic or indulgent in my recipes. But at heart, I'm a steak and mashed potatoes kind of girl. I had an organic, grass fed, La Cense Beef ribeye steak that was just begging to be cooked, and today was as good a day as any to treat myself to a juicy steak.
I used French chef Alain Ducasse's method of basting the meat with a generous amount of butter and cloves of fresh garlic. The beef is served in style with a sauce chasseur (mushroom wine sauce), as if I were eating at Alain Ducasse's restaurant. It's a pretty simple meal, and since the meat is of such high quality, why mess with the flavors too much?
What with diaper changing, baths for my baby daughter and a little work out in between I've been exhausted, so I thought this delicious steak was well-deserved. Don't you agree? Now if I could only get all the vegetarians in our household (namely my husband Lulu), to give it a try. They don't know what they're missing out on!
