Maggiano's Little Italy Copycat Recipe

1 large New York steak
1 tablespoon herb marinade
salt and pepper mix
1 tablespoon garlic butter
3 oz.roasted portabella mushrooms
1/2 cup sauteed red onions
3 oz.balsamic sauce
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon basil parsley mixed
2 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, sliced (See note below)

Herb Marinade: (use 2 tablespoons)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh rosemary leaf
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh thyme leave
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh sage leaf
1/4 cup finely chopped garlic
1 tablespoon whole black peppercorn, freshly ground

To prepare the herb marinade: Combine all ingredients in blender and briefly blend until smooth. This can be made in smaller batch, but it will be difficult to puree.

To Cook: Coat with the herb marinade and season meat well with the salt and pepper mix. Mark the steak on the high side of a boiler allowing a deep brown crust to form.  Turn it over and continue cooking on high heat until deep brown on all sides.  Halfway through the cooking the garlic butter on top of the steak.  Finish cooking in over or on the low side of the broiler.

Sauce: Heat on the griddle the roasted portabello mushrooms and the sauteed red onions.Heat in a saute pan the balsamic sauce.  Then add the mushrooms and red onions to the pan. Finish the sauce with the whole butter and the basil/parsley.

To Serve: Place the Gorgonzola on top of the steak (do not melt in the oven). Place the mushrooms on the base of a large oval plate.  Place steak on top of the mushrooms.  Pour sauce on plate and drape onions over the top of the steak on an angle...falling onto the plate.

For Gorgonzola: Slice into 1 ounce portions about 1/4 inch thick.  Layer between parchment paper cut to accommodate each slice.  Then crumble gorgonzola.

  1. I've got a very interesting article to share with you today. It?s from my good friends and fat loss cooking experts Dave and Karine from MetabolicCooking.

    In this article, you will learn:

    1. Why most "healthy" cookbooks use ingredients that actually make you fat.

    2. How to ensure your meals are optimized for fat loss!

    3. What to do so your meal plan doesn't hit a fat loss plateau.

    I'm telling you, this is GOLD!

    Is your food making you FAT or burn MORE fat? (article) By Karine Losier & Dave Ruel

    If you've tried fat loss diets before and have used a variety of weight loss cookbooks to try to lose body fat, then you very likely know by now that those fat loss diets and the "healthy" cookbooks that go with them don't work.

    What is it about them that makes successful weight loss so difficult to achieve?

    Well for starters, most "healthy" cookbooks are NOT designed with high Metabolic Thermo Charge ingredients. They are not using the metabolic powers that certain foods have to make your body burn more body fat. Instead, they use ingredients with very low thermogenic effect.

    Why does this matter? Because the Metabolic Thermo Charge of food stands for how many calories your body will burn just by breaking down the nutrients each time you consume a certain food.

    Most people have absolutely no idea of the power some of these foods have over the fat burning processes that go on inside the body, and so they never really think twice about them. BIG MISTAKE.

    For example, simply consuming high-quality protein with most meals will naturally burn off more calories and move you closer to your target weight. Lean protein has a very high "Metabolic Thermo Charge". Spices also have a strong thermogenic effect on your body. Combining certain foods together, such as chicken and turmeric, with help you burn more fat after you eat it.

    Interesting, right?

    But that's not all. Another thing to consider is whether or not your so-called ?healthy? cookbook has a real structure. Too often, cookbooks are just a bunch of recipes thrown together at random ? you pick and choose what you feel like eating at that point in the day. That is NOT going to make you burn fat faster!

    Having a structure is mandatory if you want to rid yourself of stubborn fat. That's why we developed a quick and easy "Metabolic Nutri-Profile" system for all our recipes, so you can see precisely what nutrients you're taking in, which ensures that each meal makes the most of your metabolic rate.

    Don't make the mistake of venturing into the food jungle without your compass!

    So we?ve talked about the food and the structure of your eating plan. Sounds like we?ve got it covered, right? NO!

    Ever followed a diet to a ?T? and all of a sudden noticed that you stopped losing fat?

    This is called the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon. It occurs at that point in your diet when your body knows precisely what it's getting in terms of food and has fully adapted to it. When it reaches this state, your metabolism slows down and fat loss screeches to a halt.

    In order to avoid the Metabolic Adaptation Phenomenon, you have to vary your nutrient intake regularly, shocking your body as time goes on. This keeps it guessing and ensures your metabolism stays on high at all times. Having a wide range of fat loss recipes at your fingertips makes avoiding this frustrating condition a breeze!

    Now you know the REAL score when it comes to fat loss and dieting! Be sure to watch out for these three sneaky saboteurs next time you make the decision to lose fat!
