Grilled NY Strip Steak: Mashed Yukon Gold Potatoes, Green Beans, Caramelized Onion and Boursin Cheese 

Wine Pairing: Meritage (FTWC Dry Red)  

Yields: 2 Servings
Prep Time: 1-2 hours
Cook Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • (2) 8 oz NY Strip Steaks (substitute any steak of your choice)
  • 8 oz Fresh Green Beans, cleaned/trimmed
  • 4 Yukon Gold Potatoes

Boursin Cheese:

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese, soft
  • 4 oz Butter, melted
  • 1/4 Tsp Dried Basil
  • 1/4 Tsp Dried Thyme
  • 2 Tbsp Caramelized Onions (Vidalia onions are preferred – sliced and cooked down low and slow with 1t oil in a saute pan)
  • 1/2 Tsp Cracked Black Pepper
  • 2 Tsp Garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbsp Parsley, chopped
  • Salt to taste

 

Directions:

To make the boursin cheese, allow cream cheese to completely soften at room temperature -  approximately 1-2 hours (should be able to squeeze package easily with your hands). Mix with all the other ingredients except for the melted butter. Slowly drizzle melted butter in as you are whisking the cheese mixture (you may need another set of hands for this). Boursin cheese may be made ahead of time but is best served room temperature.

Meanwhile, in a pot of boiling salted water, blanch green beans until slightly softened but still bright green in color; immediately cool in bowl of ice water. Boil potatoes (skin on if preferred) until fork tender in boiling salted water; strain and mash with butter and heavy cream. Preheat grill to 350.  Season steaks liberally both sides with salt and cracked black peppers. Cook to desired doneness.  Top with boursin cheese over sautéed green beans and mashed potatoes.


 

Pan Seared Mahi-Mahi: Pancetta, Mushrooms, Sundried Tomatoes, Spinach, Garlic Cream

Wine Pairing: Sauvignon Blanc (FTWC Dry White)

Yields: 2 Servings

  • 4 oz Fresh Spinach
  • 8 oz Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tsp Garlic, minced

 

Directions:

In a 350 degree oven, render small diced pancetta until crispy; strain excess fat and reserve. Season grouper filets with salt and pepper and pan sear in a couple tablespoons of canola oil over medium heat. Allow to cook approximately three minutes on each side, or until golden brown and fish begins to flake when pierced with a fork.

Meanwhile, in a saute pan over medium heat, saute mushrooms until soft; add sundried tomatoes, garlic, spinach and pancetta until spinach is wilted slightly – stirring constantly so garlic will not burn;  add heavy cream and reduce until desired sauce consistency.
