We usually eat Sunday supper with my family. This weekend, for a variety of reasons, we found ourselves alone on Sunday evening, opening up a whole new world of culinary opportunity.
Frankly, we were tempted to order pizza. Busy weekend and all. But I needed to hit the corner food market for a few items, and saw some beautiful rib-eye steaks on special. A few minutes later, I had a plan.
Steak is rarely part of our repertoire but it felt right on a crisp, sunny spring evening.
Sunday Supper Menu:
Roasted local asparagus with extra virgin olive oil, parmesan shavings and lemon zest
Roasted baby sweet potatoes
Roasted cipollini onions
Sautéed portabellas and shittake mushrooms with shallot and local garlic
I dusted it all with a bit of fresh rosemary. We split one steak and saved the other for sandwiches or a salad later this week. Quick, easy and satisfying.
