Burgers .. yes .. Steak .. eh, not so much

I have a feeling that's about to change

I swear there's a secret ingredient he's not telling .. a spice or two hidden all the way in the back of the cabinet that he adds .. no way the steak be so flavorful with just a bit of salt & pepper, brought to room temp, and grilled

None the less .. that's what transpired

From there .. served on grilled endive .. his signature flavor mix of cherry tomatoes, olives, and feta to top it off

Over dinner .. I just had to ask .. Back story .. Do tell .. What inspired this wonderful creation?

For a while now he'd been wanting to create an unusual steak salad

A grilled romaine salad at a local restaurant prompted the desire to grill big leafy greens .. Me gawking at endive on our latest grocery trip  … “What's this funny looking thing? How do you pronounce it?” .. check, green chosen

From there, a steak grilled to perfection with toppings out of ingredients always around in the fridge.

According to the Culinary Arts both pronunciations are correct.

EN-dive, or curly endive, has curly green leaves and a flavor that can be somewhat bitter, with the bitterness more intense in the leaves that are a darker shade of green

on-DEEVE, or Belgian endive, is a small, cylindrical head of lettuce with pale yellow leaves with slightly curly edges
