You need to eat



Years and years ago I had an Italian cookbook and this was featured in it. It was absolute simplicity and I was a young novice home cook that I doubted how good it could be. Steak was a bit expensive for me at that time and I was reluctant to "ruin" a cherished treat meal, but I had to give it a go...and it was amazing!! Just a few ingredients and presto! I recommend ribeye for this as it's usually nice and fatty and the slightly tangy glaze cuts through it and accomanies it really well.

Here's what you'll need

  • 4 ribeye steak (thick and fatty as you like)
  • 2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • salt and pepper

Here's how

  1. take the steaks out of the fridge at least an hour before you cook them

  2. in the meantime, make the glaze by simmering the balsamic and brown sugar until the sugar is dissolved and it reduces to a thick glaze, take off the heat and set aside

  3. preheat the BBQ or grill pan

  4. pat the steaks well with paper towel to dry them off really well
  5. season well with salt and pepper on both sides

  6. cook the steaks until you have your desired doneness

  7. loosely tent the steaks and let them rest at least 5 minutes

  8. toss the steaks onto warmed plates and drizzle on the glaze and job done!!

  9. serve up with some grilled aparagus and roasted beets (click here for the how-to) and you have a simple, elegant meal
