Dear Scotte:

You are a genius.  Full stop.  This week, the in-laws were in town to help us do the finishing touches on our move.  After a Saturday night dinner at B that was four courses of spectacular, we wanted to eat at home on Sunday.  We had a fairly lazy Sunday, just doing errands – Target, Home Depot, and Jo-Ann fabric.  So dinner would be equally casual but delicious nonetheless.

I decided to do a nice steak salad with individual blueberry-nectarine cobblers.  The only thing I needed to buy was a steak and bread.   Here’s what the salad was composed of:

Sliced steak with a reduction of fig balsamic vinegar

Caramelized onions

Field greens in a balsamic vinaigrette

I was totally inspired by Scotte’s Gucci-treatment steak so I went to Trader Joe’s, got a cheap cut of sirloin and went to town.  I made a salt rub of salt, garlic, green onions, and cilantro.  I followed Scotte’s instructions to the T and the steak was perfect, flavorful all the way through the middle.  The good thing is that the time the steak takes to essentially dry brine, you can put together your dressing, assemble your dessert, reduce the balsamic and set the table.

House pics to come!
