This was, simply put, stunning. Steak in a shallot/wine/butter sauce with roasted potatoes. Alas, the best things in life are rarely free and this one's no exception. You'll pay... (oh, how you'll pay!) in dietary guilt, to say the least, but when you want to allow yourself a little indulgence, do consider this dish. For now, the cut of beef is pretty inexpensive. In researching "flap meat", aka "flap steak", I came across an article in the SF Chronicle which included this eye-buggingly delicious recipe. Flap meat is very similar to flank and skirt steaks and jam-packed with flavor. This method of cooking results in perfectly done meat that's not tough - be sure to cut against the grain! - and potatoes worth their weight in gold. The sauce is... well, I can't talk about it or.... well, YOU know. ;) Times are estimated.
