A Steak Recipe Inspired by Caesar Salad

by in Recipes, Shows, February 19th, 2014

T-Bone SteaksFor this week’s Chopped Dinner Challenge, the chefs of Food Network Kitchen chose to feature the basket ingredient T-bone steaks. The goal of this challenge was to elevate average steaks with as much flavor as possible. Taking a cue from a classic Caesar salad, this recipe for Caesar T-Bone Steak with Stout Pan Sauce uses garlic and anchovies as a rub to bring umami flavor to the steaks. In addition, roasted fingerling potatoes and stout beer sauce round out the dish to make a complete meal that’s packed with punch. Serve these steaks for a special weekend dinner with friends and family.

First, start off with the potatoes. Halve the fingerlings and toss them with 3 smashed garlic cloves, thyme, oil, salt and pepper. Roast them until they’re golden and tender. Next smash the remaining garlic cloves with the anchovy fillets and a pinch of salt. Rub this paste on the steaks and season each with salt and pepper. Grill the steaks for about 8 minutes total for medium-rare.

To make the sauce, heat 1 tablespoon of butter in a saucepan. Stir in the shallot and cook for 3 minutes. Whisk in the beer, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce. Simmer until it’s reduced by half. Separately stir together the cornstarch with 2 teaspoons of water and add to the beer sauce to thicken. Whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter off the heat. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Serve the steaks with the sauce and potatoes.

    Sorry…but as an actual, professional, working chef in a real kitchen over the fire everyday…as opposed to these so-called celebrity chefs…I am not a 'clipboard chef', and find great insult in how these celebrity 'judges' tear apart great efforts of the contestants. For once, I'd like to see the tables turned on these 'chefs', and have them under the spotlight while real working chefs construct an ingredient basket every bit as horrible as those on the show.
    And as for Ms. Guarnaschelli ?? I have eaten twice in her 'signature' restaurant, and frankly, I wouldn't let that cow make me a grilled cheese….

  3. We love steak over here! Sounds like a nice recipe to test out today. I picked up some prime strip steak from http://www.RastelliDirect.com & can't wait to cook them up today
