Have you ever been watching a cooking show
(PBS) and realized you had everything they
were about to prepare in your fridge?
It has NEVER happened to me before.
I jumped up and grabbed these:
a skirt steak, sprouts, a lemon, almonds, and butter.
Rough chop these and dry roast in skillet
for a few minutes, just to enhance flavor.
Remove from skillet set aside.
Meanwhile in separate skillet over high heat throw
( forgot to photograph)
in the skirt steak and brown 3-5 minutes each side.
Rough shred some sprouts using a knife,
and toss into the skillet where you prepared the almonds,
along with 2 TB butter.
Saute a bit, as they begin to soften,
throw in some squeezed lemon, I only
used 1/2 and some Kosher salt.
When steak is medium rare
(for me a total of 6 1/2 minutes)
remove and set aside.
Finish up sautéing sprouts and toss in the almonds.
Slice steak thinly.
All told less than 8 minutes from start to finish.
I do love me some brussel sprouts as you can see,
and I am getting bored with oven roasted...finally.
An unusual Saturday lunch for me,
I rarely bother, and it was delicious!
So now I settle in to watch Lawrence of Arabia
because I have an unending love affair with Peter O'Toole.
I may have to watch Creator and
My Favorite Year this evening.
if you are unfamiliar with these 2 films,
well do yourself a huge favor and get them somehow
and if Peter does not ring your bell Vincent Spano just might : D
