For this week’s recipe for Cook the Book Fridays we chose something from Dorie Greenspan’s latest cookbook, Everyday Dorie – typically we all make the same thing each time we post but since shopping is a (non contact) sport these days and we can’t be sure what we will and won’t have access to, moderators allowed us to choose what we were able to cook/ bake this week and later this month, to be re-assessed closer to May to see if we do this again.
For Neil and I, the choice was pretty easy. We were lucky purchasers of some fantastic beef that a local butcher was selling off before they closed and we’d already grilled some rib eye steaks a couple of weeks ago, realising that even if we didn’t eat them all in one sitting (they are huge!) they reheat pretty well because they are such exceptional quality. So I pulled four more from the freezer and we gave them the Dorie Dry Rub treatment – a fabulous mix of chile powder, cinnamon, cumin, Old Bay, five spice powder, garlic and onion powder, paprika, brown sugar and more! The flavours sounds like they might be weird together but they really work and the end result was flavourful and something a little different from your average dry-rubbed steak. the five spice was a dominant flavor for me, which I love but if you don’t this is a mix you could definitely play with!
