Bloody Mary Steak Is The Ultimate Brunch Fusion Recipe

When it comes to hot sauce, it’s hard to beat the smoky, well-rounded flavors of Tabañero. However, it turns out when you mix their hot sauce with Bloody Mary mix, things get even more magical. If you’re a fan of steak, or an avid Bloody Mary drinker, this Bloody Mary steak is the Tabasutra recipe for you.

Created by the minds of two FOODBEAST chefs, the Tabasutra dry-rubbed Bloody Mary steak might be the first of it’s kind. With this in mind, it was easy to assign a simple, yet effective Tabasutra position for this recipe. Behold, The Safe Word.

This Tabasutra recipe starts off with a boneless ribeye steak marinated in a cup of Tabañero Bloody Mary mix, and splashed with Tabañero Hot Sauce, giving it the perfect texture for a smoky, spicy, and flavorful trip to red meat heaven.

What’s also deliciously impressive about this Tabasutra recipe is the sides of homemade horseradish mashed potatoes, and a cool, crispy cherry tomato celery salad made from scratch.

Ingredients:

For the steak

1 c Tabañero Bloody Mary mix

2 boneless ribeye steaks, about 1.5 inches thick

For the horseradish mashed potatoes

5 Yukon gold potatoes

1/2 c atomic horseradish

1 lb unsalted butter

1/4 c sour cream

5 garlic cloves

For the cherry tomato celery salad

1 lb cherry tomatoes

6 celery stalks

1/4 c chopped Italian flat leaf parsley

1 c celery leaves

For the Worcestershire dressing

1/4 c Worcestershire sauce

1/2 c apple cider vinegar

2 c olive oil

Salt and pepper, to taste

Step 1

Place steak in large mixing bowl and add 1 cup Tabañero Bloody Mary mix. Thoroughly rub mix all over. Cover steaks and allow to marinade for 30 minutes to one hour.

Step 2

While the steaks are marinating, start horseradish mashed potatoes. Peel and quarter Yukon gold potatoes. Rinse potatoes with cold water until water is clear. Fully cover potatoes with cold water and bring to a simmer and cook for 40 minutes, or until potatoes are tender when poked with a fork. Strain off water and add 1 lb of cubed, unsalted butter.

Step 3

Place lid on top of potatoes until butter is melted. Uncover and proceed to mash. Add Atomic horseradish and salt and pepper to taste. Reserve sour cream for plating.

Step 4

To start preparing the cherry tomato celery salad, cut tomatoes in half and cut celery into six inch-long pieces. Next, with a potato peeler, peel the celery stalks into ribbons. Pick celery leaves from center of stalk and leave whole. For parsley, pick leaves and rough chop. To assemble, place all items in mixing bowl and toss with dressing.

Step 5

To make the Worcestershire dressing, pour Worcestershire sauce and apple cider into blender. Start blending, and slowly add olive oil and lemon, and season to taste.

Step 6

Coat a heated pan with olive oil and cook steaks, flipping frequently for about 10 minutes, or until they reach your desired temperature. When done, place steaks and a mound of mashed potatoes on a plate. Top potatoes with sour cream, and then place tossed salad on top of steak.

We Need To Talk About How The Wasabi You’re Eating Is Most Likely Fake

wasabi-ns-cover-001

Foreigners who are into Japanese food but haven’t actually been to Japan may want to check this short video that reveals a shocking secret about imported wasabi. While the clip simply explains why real wasabi is quite rare and difficult to find, it also points out one surprising fact in its title: “The Wasabi You Eat Probably Isn’t Wasabi”

The video, produced by All Nippon Airways in partnership with video network Great Big Story, explores the delicate art of wasabi cultivation, according to RocketNews24.

Filmed in the Hotaka countryside in Nagano Prefecture, the production showed farmers from the Daio Wasabi Farm explaining how to cultivate a plant dubbed as the “hardest to grow”. Its delicate cultivation process makes the plant very expensive and rare to find outside Japan.

Overseas, it is usually substituted with horseradish dyed with green food coloring.

One can always visit Japan and buy the Wasabia Japonica plant. To release its flavor, however, requires grinding the plant on a shark-skin grater. Its complex, sweet flavor combined with its unique spicy twist is not hard to miss.

The plant also requires 13-18 degrees Celsius (55 – 64 degrees Fahrenheit) spring water, a particular amount of shade and sunlight, and a year-and-a-half in the soil to grow perfectly.

This means that unless you are in Japan or are provided with authentic Japanese cuisine, it’s highly unlikely you have eaten actual wasabi at all. Many people have actually missed out on the true flavor of the rare plant and have been eating horseradish all along.

The Counter [ADVENTURE]

If you’re a fan of uber-customization when it comes to your burgers and you haven’t been to The Counter in Los Angeles, California, then you’re missing out. Lucky for you, a few of us took to the streets of L.A., built up and appetite, then hit the Wilshire Ave and Fairfax location to build up some of our longtime burger dreams.

The Counter has many permutations on possible combinations (calculus son!) of customizable burger choices. From the ability to choose how big your patty is, to all of their fixings including Fried Eggs, Horseradish Cheddar, Spicy Sour Cream and of course, Bacon!  Here’s a look at what we built:

Recipe: Croissant Steak Sandwiches

There isn’t much to say about a sandwich like this, because if you’ve never tried one then you haven’t lived. Tender steak strips, caramelized onions, mushrooms and arugula all paired together with horseradish mayonnaise and in this case on a crisp croissant. This combination of ingredients make possibly one of my favorite sandwiches ever, which is why I left the recipe for you after the jump. Get it done people, you won’t be disappointed. (Thx DW&D)
