Strip Steaks with Brandied Porcini Mushroom Sauce


I love to pan sauté steaks.  They get a really good caramelized topping and they’re very easy to cook.  I realize it may be the height of barbecue season, but it’s really oppressively hot outside.  So I bring this recipe to your attention because you can cook it quickly and easily and stay in the Air Conditioning while you do.   And you actually couldn’t really get this recipe right on the grill because you need the pan drippings for the sauce.  So keep cool and eat like a king.

Grilled Veal Chops, Tomatoes and Onions with Morel Cream Sauce



        I confess.  I don’t have that primal urge to grill every piece of meat I come across in the summer.  I don’t think every single thing tastes better when it’s emerged from a session with smoke and fire over charcoal.  I sometimes wonder if grilling is the obsession it is because it gets the man of the house to help with the cooking all summer long.  Then again, it does get you out of the house and keeps the heat out of the kitchen.  And my second confession is this: I think part of my problem with grilling is that I haven’t necessarily grilled the right way.
