This recipe is quite versatile as you can make it less spicy for the kids or add some extra zing with chili sauce.  You can even make it a little more exotic by adding curry spices to the noodle dish.  The world is your oyster. The chicken’s garlic seasonings lend themselves well to whatever part of the culinary world you’d like to visit – in under an hour.

Ontario flat iron steak

Ontario flat iron steak

Serves 1

Ingredients:

  • 6 oz. flat iron steak
  • 1 bunch Thyme, fresh
  • 1 garlic, clove, sliced
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • ½ tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 1 bunch, tarragon, chopped.
  • 1 cup. potato, fingerling, blanched
  • ¼ cup. bacon, double smoked
  • 1 tbsp. shallots, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. chives, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. vinaigrette
  • 3 grape tomatoes, heirloom
  • 1 cup swiss chard, sliced
  • ¼ cup. butter, unsalted
  • ½ cup jus, prepared

Method:

  1. Marinate flat iron steak in ¼ cup of canola oil, sliced garlic and fresh thyme overnight.
  2. Season steak with kosher salt and cracked black pepper.
  3. Place a sauté pan on the stove at medium high heat. Add 1 tbsp. of canola oil and let heat to just below the smoking point. Place steak in the pan away from yourself. Turn down to medium heat and let sear for approximately 3 mins or until a beautiful golden brown. Flip and do the same for the other side. Being a leaner cut of meat it is recommended to eat a medium rare. Take out of the pan and let rest.
  4. For the vinaigrette, add all ingredients except for canola oil into a food processer and blend until smooth. While blending slowly add canola oil to emulsify. Season with salt and pepper to desired taste.
  5. For the potato salad, place a sauté pan on low heat. Add ¼ cup of canola oil. Render bacon slowly to ensure crispiness and flavor without burning the fat. Add potatoes, shallots and tomatoes and heat through. Take off the heat and toss with vinaigrette and chives. Season with salt and pepper to desired taste.
  6. For the chard, place a sauté pan on medium heat. Add butter and melt. Add chard and cook just until tender and wilted. Season with salt and pepper to desired taste.
  7. Heat jus on stove top.
  8. To serve, place warm potato salad in the center of the plate. Place Swiss chard just off the potato salad. Slice steak on a bias and fan on top of the warm potato salad. Plate with jus and enjoy.
