Questions, Comments & Reviews
Did this rub tonight on a large steak. Broiled the steak while I made Spaghetti a Matassa-put a thin slice of wonderful blue cheese on all three plates, added white truffle oil (just about 20 drops per plate) and balsamic vinegar ( a little more of this but not much) Cooked down 5 tomatoes from my garden with garlic, cilantro, rosemary, thyme and lavendar. Made a green salad with various lettuces, plums, cantalope, peaches, greek olives, feta and a light vinagrete. Put the tomato sauce and spaghetti together, mixed them with 3 tbs olive oil then split it three ways over the blue cheese, truffle oil and balsamic vinegar. Cut the steak into thin strips and put them over the spaghetti-then added red pepper flakes, uncorked a great Barbera and we ate. Fini
I'm trying this tonight. I'll serve it as part of a green salad with fresh cut plums, green pepper and fresh cut peaches. We'll also share a flourless chocolate mousse and a 2004 Uvaggio Barbera. Thanks for the cooking tip, I would never have thought to rub chocolate and coffee on meat, don't know why, just didn't. lucas hess
