The weather was downright warm yesterday so SP decided to break out the grill. He picked up a few sirloin steaks that we cooked on a very hot charcoal grill simply seasoned with salt and pepper:
They got a nice char on the outside but were perfectly rare on the inside. I also made mashed potatoes with scallions and grated cheddar cheese. We're growing tired of our usual veggies, so SP suggested Caesar salad:
I had to combine two recipes for the dressing because we were out of Dijon mustard. I tossed the dressing with chopped romaine lettuce and croutons.
Caesar Salad Dressing
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons anchovy paste (or 2 anchovy filets)
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for topping
1/2 cup mayo
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup olive oil
salt and pepper
Combine lemon juice, anchovy paste, cheese, mayo, garlic, white wine vinegar and Worcestershie sauce in blender. Blend until smooth and then drizzle in oil while blender is on. Season with salt and pepper.
