Steak Oscar

Every now we just have to have a good, special steak dinner.  Steak Oscar is one of our favorites and definitely fits the bill for being a special, elegant dinner.   It is a simple dinner to prepare.  It is surf and turf with flair.

Steak Oscar

Steak seasoned and prepared how you like it, served over mashed potatoes, then topped with cooked asparagus and crab. It is all finished with a hollandaise sauce.  Simple and elegant, but a fusion of deliciousness.

I served it with the onion and bacon fougasse and the olive dip  and a rich bold cab franc.

 

Hollandaise Sauce

2-3 egg yolks

1 tsp Dijon mustard

a pinch of nutmeg

a pinch of cayenne pepper

a splash of water

2/3-1 stick of melted butter

Whisk all the ingredients together except the butter.  In a stainless steel or glass bowl, directly over the flame, and over a pan of boiling water, whisk the egg mixture continuously while slowly pouring the melted butter and incorporating it in.  You must keep whisking the egg mixture or it will cook.  This whole process does not take very long at all; only a couple of minutes.
