The title for this quick post was inspired by one of my Twitter friends who said I was spoilt for having steak tonight. I didn’t really know that you weren’t allowed steak on a schoolnight but I love steak so I don’t really care.
By coincidence I was also speaking with fellow Psoriasis sufferes about diet and that red meat is to be avoided. Some even say you should not eat red meat at all if you have psoriasis and as I then kindly remarked, if that’s the case then a big chunk of rib-eye steak is my way of sticking two fingers up at Psoriasis. For this reason I am doign a double posting, putting the dinner on my Psoiriasis and food blogs. Yes, the same exact post on two blogs, astounding.
I owe the cooking of the Rib-eye to Chef Rick or @chefzillaTSC on Twitter. I seared the steak on both sides in a hot pan, slammed in the oven for about 8 minutes, rested for 8 minutes and back in the pan with lots of butter.
I served it with some red onion caramalised in molasses sugar, which I have to say were just amazing (and it’s not often I call my own food amazing). I also cheated a bit with some fresh potatoe wedges in a smoked garlic dressing from the Tesco Finest range and I have to admit they’re pretty good. Other than that it was a rocket salad and cherry tomatoes.
It was just a great mid-week meal. If steak on a school night is being naughty, then I will continue to be naughty.
Thanks again to @Tony_farm2table for supplying such great quality steak and @chefzillaTSC for the cooking tips. Follow them on Twitter.
