Make steak and mushroom rissoto, it's delicious. How to:
First: Heat up about 500ml of reduced salt chicken broth and take out the steak from the fridge (make sure the steak sits out for at least 30min and it should be close to room temp.
While it's heating chop up 1/3 of a brown onion per person
Next, dice up one portobello mushroom per person.
Next, heat up a pot to medium heat and add some olive oil.
Once the olive oil is up in temperature add the onions and let them simmer for about 30seconds to a minute (don't brown them!)
Then add the risotto (Arborio rice is the most common (it's not your regular rice!), it's one heaping handful per person).
After about 10-15sec add just enough white wine (not cooking wine since you can actually taste the difference in quality) to cover the bottom of the pot/rice.
Mix a bit until there's almost no wine left.
Add some chicken broth (not too much as you'll be constantly adding more and more while it gets sucked in buly the rice.
At the same time add the mushrooms.
Now you should be mixing the risotto ONLY with a wooden spoon, and as often as you can, whenever there isn't a lot of chicken broth add some more. Cooking time for risotto takes about 2min, but it's really by eye.
Now for the steak:
First get a pan (a thick one with grills is prefered) and start heating it on High
Get your nice thick steak and wash it
Put a generous amount of salt and black pepper, also add some (not too much) fresh basil on each side.
Then drench each side with olive oil.
Place on the pan and cook each side for 1min before flipping
You should end up cooking each side about 3-4min depending on how thick the steak is, how hot the pan gets, and how well you want it done (I prefer medium).
Remember you start prepping and cooking the steak about 5min after you put the mushrooms and first chicken broth in the risotto so everything is done at the same time.
Now, while the steak is cooking you want to get some ripe tomatos and cut the skin into rectangles and theow out the internals of the tomato, you only need the skin. Use your eye on how much you want (this is for the risotto)
While the steak is cooking you want to cut up one garlic clove (not too fine), wash 1-2 rosemarry branches, and cut 1 tbsp of butter. When you cook the last side of the steak add all of that in the pan and make sure you mix the steak with all of that and also cook the faty sides of the steak (this shouldn't take more than a min).
Take the steak out and let it sit0
