We are not huge steak eaters as we love the tender cuts and they are costly so when I saw the porterhouse steak on super sale (and they looked good!), I jumped. Now, most folks probably simply season them and stop there but since we had so many tomatoes from our garden, I decided to make a, well, I guess it is a Bruschetta-like topping.
We started by seasoning the T-bone with salt & pepper and while the hubby was babying them on the grill, I tossed a quick topping together and served it on the side. I did this for two reasons:
1. As an optional side
2. To get my son to try eating it. See, he does not enjoy tomatoes but I want him to experiment with flavors in other ways. Yes, I can respect that he does not enjoy eating a straight up slice of tomato but would he enjoy it otherwise? He enjoys marinara sauce so I figured it was worth a shot and he loved it!
A quick chop recipe (far from my scientific nature):
~ 4-5 Tomatoes, chopped and juices
~ 2-3 cloves of Garlic
~2-3 Tablespoons Extra-virgin olive oil
~2 Tablespoons Parsley, chopped (straight from the garden)
~2 Tablespoons Balsamic vinegar
Mix and consume.
