DIRECTIONS

  • Marinate the steaks overnight in olive oil, sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.
  • You can utilize any fresh herbs you have in your garden or local market such as rosemary.
  • Take the steaks out and let them rest about an hour before you start to work with them.
  • In the meantime, fire up the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Take your garlic bulbs and slice them in half diagonally.
  • Season with olive oil and sea salt.
  • Roast on a pan in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the garlic is nice and golden brown and your house smells heavenly.
  • Take out and set aside.
  • Heat your saute pan with some olive oil and throw in about 6 cloves of fresh chopped garlic when hot.
  • Add spinach and saute until spinach is just wilted.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Chop up the sun-dried tomatoes and toss with the spinach.
  • When the spinach has cooled, throw in the brie and the roasted garlic.
  • You can easily pull the roasted garlic from the'husk' by using a toothpick to pull it out.
  • Mix together very well!
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • You can also throw in a teaspoon or so of fresh rosemary at this point.
  • Set aside.
  • Take your steaks and cut a slit into the side of them, just as you would with stuffing pork chops.
  • Carefully stuff the steaks with your roasted garlic stuffing.
  • Throw those guys on the BBQ for about 3-4 minutes per side pending your guests preference.
  • I serve these steaks over garlic mashers which I usually just throw in an extra bulb of garlic to roast when making the stuffing and mash it all up with some fresh potatoes, butter and cream.
  • A little parsley to garnish.
  • For the sauce, take 4 tablespoons of butter and melt in a saucepan over low heat.
  • Add about 6 cloves of fresh chopped garlic, 1/4 cup of cream and 4 tablespoons of good quality balsamic vinegar.
  • Throw in a sprig of fresh rosemary and reduce the sauce by about 1/3.
  • Take out the rosemary.
  • To plate, place lean against a heap of the garlic mashers and drizzle the sauce around the plate and over the potatoes.
  • Garnish with fresh rosemary.
  • It is excellent to have a nice fresh loaf of bread to serve with this.
  • I also BBQ up some fresh local corn on the grill to accompany this meal.
  • It is a fairly easy and gourmet meal to prepare.
  • You can even make the stuffing the night before.
  • Enjoy!
  • And long live garlic!
