Welcome back Dear Friends,
So, I hope you liked the Crisp recipes.
And perhaps you need a dinner to precede them ?
I just made and enjoyed,
seconds and all,
A Simple Summer Dinner
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy!
First off marinate a nice
olive oil, garlic & soy,
for a few hours
Later you'll grill it
medium rare and fan it in slices.
To accompany the Flank Steak...
Smokey Eggplant with Peppers, Vidalia Onions, and Mint.
To make this, sweat 1 1/2 sliced Vidalia Onions,
a nice selection of red, yellow, and poblano peppers,
and a handful of garlic cloves in olive oil.
Season this with salt, pepper, thyme,
hot chili flakes, the skin of a lemon, and smoked paprika.
This will take around 15 minutes.
We want this mixture to soften.
I then added an eggplant that I'd cubed.
Corrected for seasoning,
I cooked the eggplant until it was done.
Before it was finished I deglazed with
the Moscatel Wine Vinegar that I am so fond of.
Then I mixed in a giant handful of
a chiffonade of mint
and garnished with
a beautiful, aromatic
Plate the fanned steak slices,
add a dollop or two
of the eggplant
