good-better


Y
ou know whats coming dont you? How do you make something that is normally really good into something that is even better? Truffle oil. I am obviously so psyched to be able to pour this stuff on everything I am surprised I havent put it in my bath.



Steak sandwich - Crunchy, fresh baguette filled with oven roasted beef tenderloin drizzled with the coup de gras - white truffle oil, roma grape tomatoes, julienned spring peas, white irish cheddar then melt it under the broiler. This was a sandwich that even the kid thought was out of this galaxy.

I can imagine how well the earthy flavor of truffle oil tasted with the steak. Crazy man.
Obviously you're so open to new things, have you had a steak & egg grinder? Man I miss those.

BD: There was definitely not enough of this to go around - thirds were in order

dawn: the flavors were perfect together - I can certainly enjoy a steak and egg grinder now and again.

mmm, Looks impresive and by the way its a good thought why not try truffle oil in bath ;) ha ha.. I read a book which said that wine can be used for bath mmm that did surprise me, who know one day some one would come out with a research saying Truffle Oil, can be used for bath... Thoughtful Christo!!! ;)

Oh my God that looks so freaking good! And I'm hungry, too!

I'm gonna have to look up truffle oil. I have no clue.

Jenn said...

You definitely made that steak sandwich better!! Truffle oil to the rescue!

Patty Gironda said...

nice! I love truffle oil and what a great way to incorporate into something so familiar!

Jill said...

My husband didn't know any better and was cooking with it like olive oil!

And when a kid says anything other than "It's OK," you know you have something good going on.

snugs: do I have to do everything for you?

5 star: thanks

ramya: dont tempt me I might start bathing with it...

bina: olive oil with a truffle essence - truffles are rare and strong wild mushrooms

jenn: only problem - not enough steak

patty: it is super good on everyday things

jill: I guess if you are the maharaja you can use it liberally

marjie: it is a good feeling to get accolades beyond - its ok -why?

I think, by this point, you're essentially telling me that I really need to run out and buy some truffle oil. Point taken; will do!
