When your garlic starts to sprout, what do you do? If you say throw it out, you can’t be my friend..
Because roasted garlic is the best..
Spread it on some amazing thick pieces of hot steak (leftover from Christmas and defrosted), and my, what a meal.
Maybe marinate the steak in homemade worcestershire sauce if your girlfriend’s coworker gave you some. Or, you know, use whatever you have..
- large, thick pieces of gorgeous steak
- garlic bulbs
- seasoning and/or marinade
Marinate your steak for a few hours in the fridge.
Cut off the top of the garlic so the cloves are just exposed, drizzle with oil, and put in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes or until you can easily squeeze the garlic out of the cloves or put a fork cleanly through them. Mash up the cloves.
This will make your house smell like amazingness..
Take the steak out of the marinade and let come to room temperature. Season really well, then put the steak in a hot pan with some oil in it and sear for 4-5 minutes on each side. A HOT pan. I like mine a bit on the rare side of medium rare, so just 4 minutes each side for me. Season immediately after taking them off. A little salt on top.
Now, spread that roasted garlic on the top while you let them sit for 2-3 minutes before eating them and feeling happy and beautiful and free.
Happy in a hazy cloud of garlic.
