La Diva’s Smokey Grilled Flank Steak with Slow Roasted Tomatoes and Blue Cheese Buttermilk dressing:
Dinner for two
Slow roasted tomatoes:
2 hours before dinner or the day before:
In a small roasting pan add a 1/2 pint of grape tomatoes, a few cloves of peeled garlic and a quick swirl of extra virgin olive oil. Add a bit of salt. Slowly roast tomatoes until shriveled and caramelized, about two hours, checking every half hour. When cooked, set aside.
At least a few hours before make a rub of:
ground ancho chile
Blue cheese buttermilk dressing:
In a long cylinder container blend:
2-3 ounces crumbled blue cheese*
2 T buttermilk
1 green onion cut into pieces
3 T good quality extra virgin olive oil
2 T white wine vinegar
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
*Note: the creamier and better quality the blue cheese, the creamier and tastier the dressing. I used pre-crumbled blue cheese so the dressing was a bit dry. I would prefer to use a better quality cheese next time like Maytag.
Puttin’ it together:
