NY Strip

  1. Rest the steak, out of the refrigerator, until it reaches ambient temperature of 60°

  3. Put tomatoes in a metal sauce pot, core side down
  4. Stuff in 3 sprigs each oregano, parsley, tarragon and basil
  5. Add 2 cloves of garlic
  6. Add 2 pinches of salt
  7. Pour EVOO over the tomatoes to cover by 1/2
  8. Cook in the oven for 4 hours
  9. Remove and let cool to room temperature
  10. Reserve the tomatoes, their juices, and the EVOO
  11. Puree in a blender on high speed

Roasted Cauliflower Steak

  1. Preheat your oven to 425°
