Week 33 Emeril LeGasse Beef Fillet, Garlic Potatoes and a Salad

We are back. We have taken a summer break from our cooking. We have been on a few vacations. Carl and I were actually gone a lot this summer and not always together. We did do a mexican taco dinner that was just free styling (no recipe).

This meal

Fine dining at it's best. This was a great meal. Maybe one of our top 3.

Here is the breakdown.

We had Delmonico House Salad, and Roasted Garlic Smashed Potatoes, and Steak Diane.

I loved the potatoes and they were easy. Here is the recipe:

Cook 2 pounds of red potatoes for 16-20 minutes.

Roast 1 head of garlic in the oven. Smash up the roasted garlic and add to the potatoes and then smash that all up. Don't get rid of the chunks.

Add 6 TBLS of melted butter and 1 cup of cream.

Add 1 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of pepper.

We really enjoyed this one. It was fast, and it was good. Carl did a great job with the Steak Diane. He made the sauce to perfection. The meat was tender and tasty.

This was my favorite meal I loved the steak it was soft delicious and the sauce was fantastic it was a brandy sauce which we did go to the liquor store to buy! Very new experience for the both of us. The potatoes were very good except they made are house stench of garlic. The salad had a fantastic dressing it had mustard tartness plus a suttle sweetness.
