Arkansas Fried Green Tomatoes

Arkansas Fried Green Tomatoes

I make an Italian version like my nana used to make ( immigrant from Italy to NJ). I updated using Panko bread crumbs - her recipe was regular breadcrumbs with dried oregano, a bit of flour and freshly grated reggiano parmasan cheese. Slice firm green tomatoes, dip in egg then bread crumb flour cheese coating and fry in EVOO with finely chopped garlic. Salt as they drain on paper towels. The panko gives a nicer crust but the recipe takes me back 40 years to my nana's kitchen and Pop's tomato garden — sgrishka 8/15/2010
Pan-Seared Rib Eye Steak

Pan-Seared Rib Eye Steak

Marvelous- came out perfect. I eliminated the sauce, and roasted Videlia onions prior to making the steak ( large videlia onions halved lengthwise, set in pyrex cover with a bit of EVOO ( I prefer Greek Kalameta OO and worstcheschire sauce) roast w/o skins in 450 oven for 20 minutes. flip once. Goes nice with the steaks. Also topped hot steaks with crumbled roquefort. — sgrishka 8/15/2010
