PRIME NEW YORK STRIP ASADO
Four 13 oz. New York Strip Steaks
7 Cipollini Onions, peeled
Season liberally with Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper. In a heavy bottomed pan, add 1 tablespoon of butter, 1 tablespoon of Olive Oil and sear on both sides until desired temperature is achieved. Add Cipollini Onion during the last two minutes of searing your steaks and allow to brown. When steaks are done, brush with Brazilian Asado Sauce and let rest for 7 minutes tented in foil before slicing.
FOR BRAZILIAN ASADO SAUCE
7 Charred Tomatoes
2 oz. Brown Sugar
1 oz. Coriander
2 oz. Beef Stock
1 Yellow Onion
1 Head of Garlic, peeled
Purée ingredients into sauce-like consistency
FOR PINOT NOIR REDUCTION
2 Cups of Pinot Noir Wine
I Cup of Beef Stock
Add Wine into a sauce pot and reduce until the alcohol has been burned off. Add 1 Cup of Beef Stock and reduce until thick, or until the sauce can coat the back of your spoon.
4oz Green Garlic
10 oz Fingerling Potatoes
Split Potatoes in half and boil in water for 12 minutes, or until they can easily be pierced with a fork. Cool them down in refrigerator. Add 1 tablespoon of butter and potatoes to a sauté pan and sauté until brown and crispy. During the last 1 minute of cooking, add chopped Green Garlic and toss until well combined.
Stack fingerling potatoes on the plate. Cut steak in half to expose the perfectly cooked center, and lay on top of the potatoes. Drizzle with the Pinot Noir Reduction and Brazilian Asado sauce. Enjoy!
