Today it was my turn to cook something again. And this it would be an extra challenge, because Miranda would join us for dinner… and Miranda is a cook by profession. And she promised to be honest about I made.
Earlier today I bought 3 rib-eyes. Good ones, not from a supermarket, but from a real butcher. A bit more expensive, but with this kind of things you really will notice the difference.
The rib-eyes with softly rubbed in with some spices and herbs (paprika, coriander, laurel, clove, pepper and a little salt). A pepper-sauce with cognac was served with the rib-eye.
What made the preparing of the rib-eye a bit harder was that Sanne and I wanted the rib-eye medium done and Miranda wanted it raw. And taking one earlier from the fire was not an option according Miranda :).
Oven-baked potatoes that were dipped in a dressing that was based on olive oil and parsley. A salad made of cabbage, radish, leek, cocktail onions and paprika (thank you for the help with chopping this all, Miranda… you do it on amazing speed and precision).
As extra some asperges and baked portabellas (a rather big mushroom kind) were added.
Miranda said she really enjoyed it and that is was well made. Only remark was that the portabellas were baked a bit too fast and too long. But for the rest she like it. And as she said it was fun to see someone cooking for her once.
