A little everyday chit chat around the table...like we all used to do around my Grandmothers' tables when I was growing up. A little of this...a little of that...nothing too special...but as the years pass, all of it seems so. Come, sit at the Table, contribute, enjoy, stay as long as you want, leave when you need to, and return often!
In the Cooking Italy class with Angela, we are cooking from the book Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking by Marcella Hazan. This week's recipe was La Florentine Grilled T-Bone and can be found on page 385.
The recipe was simple, easy, and quick. Especially if your husband in the grill master at your house. So, I confess: I cracked the peppercorns for him and he did all the rest, which means he brought it to room temperature, seasoned it, grilled it for the times the recipe suggested, let it rest, carved it after letting it rest for 10 minutes, and served it on the plate. He did it all perfectly.
I am not sure what kind of steak is in the picture as Mark did the purchasing. I do know it was the same size and thickness that was recommended in the recipe, and some sort of version of T-Bone.
The recipe was perfectly correct in seasoning and grilling instructions, the steak finishing off rare, just the way we like it. The timing of it all was perfect.
Definitely a repeat, definitely a hit around here, definitely doing it again.
If you would like to see Angela's lovely rendition (she has such a way with food styling) and the recipe, you can go to Spinach Tiger where you will also find a connect to the Cooking Italy group, the schedule, and the upcoming menu recipes.
Next week's recipe is Zabaglione and can be found on page 599.
