The new name of the game is how do I make meat interesting? I always need my protein, but at the end of the day, chicken and steak can get boring. Plus, in celebration of classic video game love, I've recently discovered a recipe that's not only filling, but equal parts adorable and delicious.
Onion Stuffed Toad Steak
- 1 small Onion
- Onion Powder
- Garlic Powder
- 2 tsp Balsamic vinegar
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Prep your onion by chopping it up.
- Mince a 2 cloves of garlic.
- Heat a pan on medium heat and drizzle some extra virgin olive oil in the pan.
- Add your garlic.
- After 20-30 seconds, place your Portabello cap top down in the pan. Add your chopped onion into the natural bowl created by the cap. Drizzle 2 tsp Balsamic Vinegar over the onions.
- Cook on each side for about 3-5 minutes until the mushroom is soft and the onions look sautéed and transluscent. Note: When you flip the portabello, the onions will probably spill out. Just do your best to tuck them under the cap and frankly, you can stuff them back inside when its time to serve them anyways.
- Sprinkle both sides of your steak with onion and garlic powder. Add salt and pepper to taste and then massage your seasonings into the steak.
- Heat another pan on medium heat and add extra virgin olive oil.
- Fry up your steak evenly on each side until the internal temperature is right. I prefer between 130-140 degrees for medium rare.
- Plate your steak and put your toad portabello on top! You can even drizzle a little more balsamic over the top if you want to get really fancy! I usually serve it with some sort of green vegetable. So get cooking and make your own!
