Saturday Night Salad, Grilled Steak, Roasted Potatoes with Beurre Maitre d'



They say to copy someone is the highest form of flattery, and the post earlier by l'affiche was without a doubt the nicest looking presentation I have seen on this board. I was showing his photo to my wife and she said, "Compound Butter - we used to have that all the time. I can make that for you." I said, "but Dear he made Beurre Maitre d'." She smiled like she does so often and said "Yes, compound butter." So here we go with me as Chef and the wife as Sou Chef Supreme.

Beurre maitre d' - thanks l'affiche:

Need

4 Tablespoons Soft (room temp) Butter
2 Tablespoon finely chopped flat parsley
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
pinch of salt



Mix and shape - the wife used a #40 scoop (40 scoops per Qt). Put in Fridge to chill and allow flavors to meld. She used to keep this in the freezer. Don't know why she stopped.



Roasted potatoes:

Need 2 potatoes, oil, Black Pepper, Red Pepper flakes, Parmesan cheese and Beurre maitre d'



Clean and cut potatoes into 1 inch chunks. Coat lightly with oil, add black pepper liberally and red pepper flakes. Roast for 30 minutes on a half sheet pan in oven at 400 F. At end of roast, dust with shaved parmesan cheese and Beurre maitre d' when plating.



Simple salad (iceberg wedge), with a knock out Homemade Thousand Island Dressing:

This is the wife's recipe originally in that Red Checkerboard Better Homes and Gardens vintage 1960's cookbook.

Need:

Lettuce Wedges
1 boiled egg (Grated)
1 1/2 Tablespoon Green Pepper, fine chopped
1 1/2 Tablesoon Celery, fine chopped
1 Tablespoon Onion, fine chopped
2 Tablespoons Ketchup - Your brand
1/2 cup Mayo
1 Teaspoon Paprica
1/2 teaspoon salt



Set up:



Plated - I like Black Pepper with mine:



New York Strip Steaks:

Our's were about an inch thick (a little thin for me) seasoned with Black Pepper and Lawry's garlic salt and allowed to warm to room temp (about an hour on the counter top).



Hot grill,:



with steak close to the fire. My intent was to cook them to medium. They were about an inch thick and so I cooked them for about two minutes on each side.



Time to eat:



Beurre maitre d' on the steaks (thanks for the reminder how good this stuff is l'affiche) and on the roasted potatoes.



Almost forgot to show the interior of the steak:



Just a few more shots:









A WORD OF CAUTION

The wife (MHNBPF) says that I need to tell you the Thousand Island Dressing has boiled eggs and should not be stored (must be in the fridge) for longer than two days before eating. We never make more then we will eat that meal. It is so easy to make that having to make it each time you want it is not a real problem.

When I get this tooth mended, I'm having that meal! I love thousand island dressing. Your plates look like Jones' plates. Or were they LL's?

Get this tooth mended...


I know - we have the same plates as his. Noticed the first time he posted something after I showed up here. Ours are four or five years old. I wonder how new/old his are.They actually are nice, big plates and quite durable. The soup bowls are shallow and I like eating ourt of them - Probably used them in my shrimp grits post - way back when.

Sorry about your tooth. No fun. My dentist lives next door to me. Do you want to drop by and have him drill and patch? He is a really good dentist with a great Golden Retriever and a lovely wife. Not sure why his dog is important, but she is a sweetie. The dog. The wife is a nice lady too.

That steak looks cooked to perfection. A lot of people say you can only cook a steak well in a skillet; I disagree.


You might not be able to get the same sear on a grill, but nothing can replace the taste of the fat dripping down and then coming back up off the charcoal.


And somehow you managed to get the sear anyway. I just ate dinner, yet somehow I'm hungry again


ETA: it can get a bit tricky working with steaks that are less than 2 inches. It's hard to get a good crust yet still have the insides just warm enough to be medium rare. Looks like you hit it out of the park

thanks for the offer but I have to live on these meds a while longer before drilling can begin.

Shallow bowls are good for shrimp and grits as pedestrian as that is.

For steaks, I like a really hot fire. I probably get it too hot, beacuse I raise the coals up to within a inch of the grate, but it seems to work.

Have cooked a ton of stuff on that old grill.

I know I said it earlier, when you posted it, but that b-sprouts and steak photo you shared was splendid - The best presentation I have seen here. I actually went out today looking for b-sprouts and couldn't find any other than frozen and yours looked fresh. I love brussel sprouts and I love them roasted. Maybe I won't be forced to wait until the fall to find some fresh ones here.

white beans "recipes


That's so funny, because I was thinking tonight that I wanted to set the AC low and make a pot of Beans and Ham, which is my preferred way of having white beans.

We use Great Northern beans, par boiled and left overnight, then put in pot with lots of water, sugar and some bacon fat. Cook slowly for an hour or so and then add the ham - I like the country ham slices _1/4 - 1/2 inch thick. Then cook them with ham until they are your level of doneness. Th ewife makes me wait until the last twenty minutes or so before I add salt, becaus eshe says it makes them tough if you salt them when you begin. She has a degree in Foods/Nutrition, so I assume she knows her stuff.

With beans and ham, you must have cornbread and we always do, with butter is my way of eating it.

May do this meal one day this next week.

Thanks! So no onions or bell peppers? I guess I tend to cook them like I do Red Beans. Ham is the way to go though for sure. I have some Poche's tasso that I may use. Going to the butcher to get smoked shanks most likely. I'll see what type of sausage he has. He is a whole animal butcher and teaches classes. He also has a great book.
