the perfect accompaniment to sunshine is the scent of searing meat wafting through the air. mmm...steaks.
i seasoned these ribeyes with some salt and pepper and while they were coming up to room temperature i started on my kale.
kale is probably my very favorite green. well, maybe collard greens but kale is a close second. i use it in soups a lot. i like to roast it and i really, really like to braise it.
i started with some shallots in a lil' butter and canola oil.
then i tore up the kale and threw that in and tossed it with the shallots.
after just a minute or so i added about a 1/4 cup veggie stock and some salt and pepper and red pepper flakes. this braised for about 20 minutes or so.
the steaks went on the grill for just about 5 minutes per side.
i let these rest while the kale finished braising and the potato in the microwave finished baking. we sat out on the front porch to enjoy this spring feast!
