Prime Sirloin, Enoki Mushrooms, Leeks, Potatoes and Black Truffle
Its the end of the truffle season so I decided to get one more to enjoy before its over. This dish takes 45 minutes, feeds two people and costs about $40.
1 - 12oz prime sirloin
1 - package of fresh enoki mushrooms
1 - organic leek, thin round slices
1 - package tricolor baby potatoes, halved
1/8 cup - real balsamic vinegar
1/8 cup - dry marsala wine
5 grams - Perigord Black Truffle
Potatoes, Leeks and Mushrooms
Preheat the oven to 350. Toss the potatoes in salt, pepper and olive oil and place cut side down on a baking sheet. Cook for 30 minutes or until tender. Place mushrooms and leeks on a oiled baking sheet and roast i the oven for 15 minutes.
Sirloin of Beef
Get a cast iron pan going for about five minutes on medium high heat. Season steak with salt and pepper and sear in the pan for about two minutes on each side. Remove from the pan and place on a foil lined baking rack. Glaze the steak with a teaspoon of the real balsamic vinegar. Place it in the oven for 10 minutes. Remove, glaze one more time with balsamic and let it stand for 7 minutes. Slice and serve.
Place equal part real balsamic and dry marsala wine in a small saucepan on low heat. Let it reduce for about 30 minutes or until about 2 tablespoons remain.
Shave the fresh truffles over the plated dish and enjoy! Buon Apetitio!!
