Grilled Sirloin Steak with Gorgonzola
Is there a man around who will turn down a juicy, perfectly cooked steak?
I doubt it, so for anchoring a meal on Father's Day, what could be better than a charred, succulent beef sirloin topped with creamy slices of gorgonzola and a simple red onion rosemary relish?
Even the most demanding steak-eating dads will love this recipe, which requires only minutes for mothers and kids to prepare.
Boneless sirloins are seasoned with garlic, crushed dried rosemary, kosher salt, and coarse black pepper, then put on the grill.
When almost done, the steaks are covered with thin slices of blue cheese and cooked a minute more.
As a garnish, spoonfuls of chopped red onion and minced fresh rosemary are mounded atop each serving. The smoky flavor of the meat, the saltiness of the cheese, and the slightly sharp bite of the onions combine to form an enticing trinity of tastes.
Corn on the cob or mashed potatoes, plus grilled or blanched asparagus spears, would made excellent sides.
Add a basket of warm garlic bread, and for dessert offer coffee sundaes (scoops of coffee ice cream topped with warm chocolate sauce, a sprinkle of nuts and whipped cream), and you'll cook your way to your dad's heart on June 21st.
Grilled Sirloins with Gorgonzola, Red Onions and Rosemary
- 2 medium garlic cloves
- 2 teaspoons crushed dried rosemary (see note)
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for oiling grill rack
- Two 1-pound boneless sirloin steaks, about 1 inch thick
- 6 tablespoons chopped red onion
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh rosemary plus 4 rosemary sprigs for garnish
- A 4 - to 5-ounce wedge gorgonzola or other creamy blue cheese
Peel and smash garlic with the back of a knife, then coarsely chop.
Place garlic in a bowl with dried rosemary, salt and pepper.
Add 2 tablespoons olive oil and use a fork to mash and blend together.
Brush onto each side of the steaks. (The steaks can be brushed with garlic mixture 2 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before grilling.)
Mix together onions and rosemary in a bowl.
Cut the wedge of gorgonzola into thin slices. (Onions and cheese can be prepped 2 hours ahead; cover and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature 30 minutes before using.)
To grill steaks, oil a grill rack and arrange it about 5 inches from heat source.
Prepare grill for a hot fire (high temperature).
When hot, add steaks and grill 3 to 5 minutes per side, until rosy pink for medium rare. (Internal temperature should be 145 F.)
Turn steaks a final time and top each with some sliced gorgonzola, cover with lid, and grill only about a minute more, just until cheese starts to soften.
Remove steaks to a platter and cut each in half.
Top each serving with some of the onion mixture and garnish each with a rosemary sprig.
Note: To save time, use crushed dried rosemary, rather than dried rosemary leaves that you crush yourself. McCormick's is a readily available brand.
Potato, Leek and Spinach Frittata
Potato, Leek and Spinach Frittata Recipe
Diane Rossen Worthington
The classic Italian frittata is a flat, open-faced omelet cooked over low heat until firm on the bottom and then finished in the oven. This version, which has potatoes, leeks and spinach tucked inside, can be decorated with sun-dried tomatoes, dollops of sour cream and shredded basil. You can be as inventive as you wish.
Whether I'm serving lunch at one of my fine dining restaurants, such as Spago or Chinois, or at my casual Wolfgang Puck Expresses, I always offer some kind of Asian-inspired chicken salad.
Not only do I love the way it tastes, but my guests have come to think of such salads over the last few decades as an ideal midday main course.

Carbs and Breakfast Cereals
Technically there is no such thing as a low-carbohydrate cereal because cereal is made from grains, and grains are mostly carbohydrates. Today, many cereals include soy for additional protein. That leaves you with three options ...
