steak with parmesan butter, balsamic glaze and arugula

October 7, 2009

Like the rest of the food world, I was saddened to hear about the demise of Gourmet magazine.    Gourmet is the second in line for my food magazine addiction, with Bon Appetit coming first.  To be honest, I’m not sure why Gourmet lost out to Bon Appetit.  Was Gourmet too high brow sounding for today’s recessionary times?

They are both sister magazines, and I use a lot of recipes from the Epicurious site.  Tonight we celebrated Ella’s bronze medal in school soccer victory by having steak.

But this wasn’t any old steak.  This was prime rib steak from Sunterra, and it was slathered in Parmesan butter, drizzled with balsamic glaze and served on top of arugula, shaved parmesan and lemon.  It was decadent and a really yummy steak.  This would make one of those ‘easy but impressive’ dishes to serve to company.   I really loved the sharp peppery addition of arugula.  Arugula is a great leaf…for some reason, we ate it A LOT when we lived in Norway.  Perhaps it is the Norwegian lettuce?

As is my way, I’m not typing out the whole recipe.  I followed it to a ‘t’.  Here it is, from Bon Appetit magazine last October:  Steak with parmesan butter, balsamic glaze and arugula. I think the photo speaks for itself.
