After a hard day of working on our house, I looked at Zo and said, "I really feel like steak tonight!" She didn't argue, so I decided to try out an idea I have had rolling around in my head for who knows how long. Some of my simpler ideas stay on the back burner for a long time before they make it to our table. I think this is because, I constantly want to impress ZoAnn. I keep thinking that if I don't keep her palate happily entertained, she might realize, I'm not as great of a catch as she thinks I am. So when I get around to making some of my simpler recipe ideas, I think we can both be really surprised at how great some of them are. Take this recipe for example. It has only 7 ingredients but tastes like something Zo and I have paid 40 bucks a plate for at a restaurant! When I make meals like this, that are so easy but so great I just can not understand why people go out to eat. Stay at home and have fun cooking together! We did not have to drive anywhere, it took us less than a half hour to make, it cost us less than 15 bucks and we got to have a great time in the kitchen together. Cooking for someone you love really is heaven, try it sometime! Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 1 1/4 inch thick cut Rib eye steak (at room temp)
2 green onions (chopped)
2 slices of smoked deli cut bacon (cut in half)
2 tbsp Gorgonzola (crumbled)
1-1 1/2 tsp white truffle oil
kosher salt (to taste)
fresh crack pepper medley (to taste)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat a medium non-stick skillet over medium high heat.

In a small bowl mix together the onions and Gorgonzola.

Rub truffle oil into both sides of steak then lightly dust both sides with salt and pepper. Immediately place in skillet and sear both sides for 1-1 1/2 minutes. Remove steak from skillet and place on a baking safe dish. Lay the slices of bacon diagonally across the steak. Evenly spread your cheese and onion mixture over the bacon.

Place steak on an oven safe dish and bake for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees (depending on your favored doneness.) Remove the steak from the oven and turn oven to broil. Move the racks in your oven one down from the closest position to the broiler. Once heated. Place steak on rack and broil for 3-5 minutes of until bacon is crispy and cheese is fully melted.

Remove steak from oven and let sit for 5 minutes before serving hot! Get ready to enjoy one great steak!

  1. sounds wonderful! where do you find white truffle oil at the grocery store?

     
  2. You can get it at most any grocery store in the oil section or fine dinning section. I buy it at costco and save about 15 bucks a bottle. I have not seen it there latley but I bought 3 bottles the last time I was there.
