Steak with a French Compound Butter
- 8 tbsp. Cloverdale unsalted butter at room temperature 220311
- 1 tbsp. minced shallot
- 1 pinch white pepper 682368
- 1 pinch sea salt
- 1 tbsp. Fresh Herbs such as rosemary 591834 or thyme 591992
- squeeze of lemon
Place the butter into a bowl and break up with fork. Add the shallot, salt & pepper, lemon, and herb(s). Blend the butter with the fork until it is smooth. This can be used immediately or rolled in parchment and frozen.
Porterhouse, Ribeye or New York Strip Steaks
- 2 Porterhouse, Ribeye or New York Strip Steaks
- 1 pinch Morton Kosher Salt 682642
- 1 stick Cloverdale unsalted Butter 220311
- 1 1/2 tbsp. flat leaf Parsley, chopped
- 1 tsp. Shallot, minced
- 1 pinch freshly ground White Pepper 682368
- 1/2 fresh Lemon 591668
- 1 splash Oil
Season both sides of the steaks with salt. Put them back into the fridge uncovered until an hour before you want to cook them. Allow the butter to soften at room temperature. Meanwhile place the shallot and parsley into a mortar and crush. Place the butter into a small mixing bowl and smear with a rubber spatula. Add the aromatics, a few drops of lemon juice, a pinch of salt and a few grinds of white pepper. Blend the butter. You can either refrigerate the butter as is or you can roll it up in parchment pepper, then foil and twist the ends to form a round log. When you are ready to cook the steaks, season both sides with fresh ground black pepper. Place a cast iron skillet over medium high heat. Add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan. When the oil is hot — you do not want it too hot, but you want it to start searing right away — add the steak. Cook the steak on both sides until it is very brown and caramelized. Remove the steak from the pan when it has reached one temperature below where you like.
Cook the second steak in the same fashion. Both steaks can be cooked up to an hour in advance and left to sit at room temperature. Do not refrigerate them. In your oven place the top rack so it is about 8 to 10 inches from the broiler. Heat the broiler. Smear each steak with some softened frenched butter then place a small knob on each steak. Place the steaks under the broiler just long enough to melt the butter and heat the steaks through. Serve.
Ambrosia Chocolate Cheesecake
- 12 oz. soft Pauly Cream Cheese 222085
- 3⁄4 cup Domino sugar 700600
- 1 Egg (beaten) 590962
- 2 tsp. Vanilla 360457
- 2 tsp. lemon juice
- 1⁄2 cup Hershey Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips 122993
- 1 9-inch Graham Cracker Crust
- 1 cup Daisy sour cream 226321
- 1⁄4 cup Domino sugar 700600
- 1 tsp. Vanilla 360457
Blend first five cake ingredients. Fold chocolate chips and pour into crust. Bake for 40 minutes at 300 degrees F. For topping, blend sour cream, sugar, and vanilla. Spread over pie and bake 15 minutes more. Refrigerate when cool.
Espresso Chocolate Ganache
- 8 oz. Hershey semi-sweet chocolate 122993
- 2 cups Golden Sunshine heavy cream 226719
- 1 tsp. espresso powder
Place finely chopped chocolate into a heat-proof glass or metal bowl. Heat cream on the stovetop until just simmering. If it is boiling, the cream is too hot and could separate or even burn the chocolate. Once you see little simmers around the edges, turn off the heat and immediately pour the warm cream over the chocolate. Let the two set for a few minutes before stirring. Stir until smooth. After you stir the chocolate and warm cream together, use the ganache right away as a fruit dip or drizzle on top of cakes, cupcakes, pound cakes, ice cream, and more. But if you wait about 2 hours and let it cool completely, the ganache can be scooped with a spoon, spread onto desserts, or piped with piping tips.
Cheers and Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
