A Friday Dinner For Two

Daughter was out at a friends so I had to think of a light meal for two.

Something like say, big honkin’ ribeyes, mashed potatoes and caramelized Brussels sprouts?

Yeah, something like that.

    My kind of light. With seconds, if possible. I’m not worth a damn afterward but my couch needs a potato now and again.

    You had me at rib-eye…. but Brussels sprouts?

  3. Mr. Bingley says:

    I swears ta ya’ Mark, saut√© in bacony butter and caramelize them and they get sweet with none of that cabbagey schtink.

    Mr. B,
    Boiled before saute? Saute raw? Approximate time required to caramelize? Curious minds want to know!

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    Saute raw; boiling a) enmushifies and b) also leads to schtinkage.

    The time to caramelize is, er, was, er, however long it takes; I reckon over mediumish heat it took 7-8 minutes on the flat side and then I flipped ’em and added a little more stock and butter. I didn’t have enough crumbled bacon to get the full flavor I wanted; I used some of the smoked salt that Dear Suzette got me to kick it up a notch.

    Well… in an effort to expand my horizons on the green front, I’ll give these caramelized sprouts a try. But I suspect I’ll end up throwing them and and doing shots of bacony butter.

    And speaking of butter… I have recently taken to cutting a thin slice of Irish Kerry Gold butter… and eating it like cheese. But I only do it once in a while. I can quit any time I want.

    But maybe a fix, er, slice before bed.
