Steak with Garlic-Roasted Radicchio.
As part of Good Morning America's "Cut the Carbs, Lose the
Weight" series, Chef Todd English, of Olives in Charlestown, Mass., made a
skirt steak with balsamic marinade and garlic-grilled radicchio.
8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 large heads radicchio,
halved through the root
Grated Parmesan cheese, for garnish
1. Place the garlic, olive oil, rosemary, vinegar, salt,
and pepper in a large bowl and mix well. Add the radicchio and gently toss so
that it is well coated. Cover and let marinate at room temperature for at least
2. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
3. Place the
radicchio in a baking pan and pour the marinade on top. Place in the oven and
roast until the edges of the radicchio are crisp and almost beginning to look
burnt, about 20 to 25 minutes.
4. Serve immediately, with grated
Parmesan cheese. Serves 12
2 roasted garlic cloves
1 Tbsp. dijon mustard
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Grated zest of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbsp. balsamic
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1.5 pounds skirt steak
1 tsp. kosher
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1. To make the marinade, mix the Dijon mustard with
chopped cilantro, lemon zest, balsamic vinegar, 2 tbsp. Olive oil, kosher salt
and black pepper. Soak the steak in the marinade for one hour in covered
2. Use a broiler and cook the steak, with garlic
cloves, for 5 minutes on each side, with broiler set to high. Or, fry the steak
in a heavy pan with 2 cloves of garlic.
As an alternate, you can sear
in a grill pan on top of stove over high heat and then place in a 450 F oven
for 10 to 15 minutes, to desired doneness (130 degrees with instant read
thermometer would equal medium rare) Use salt and pepper to season steak and
serve with radicchio.
