Happy Bastille Day!!! to commemorate the day I decided to make a very French meal tonight. What better than steak, frites et salade.
With all the wonderful dishes that France has to offer somehow this bistro classic is always the favorite. Maybe it is the simplicity of it, maybe it is that in less than 20 minutes a great meal is served. Maybe… maybe… I just know that we loved every bites of it.
I did not just make plain steak, I made steak au poivre. For fun I decided to let my steak sit for a few minutes in the cognac. I strongly suggest it to try it. The steak had a slight bite to it.
TIP: Please make sure that when pouring the cognac, or any alcoholic beverages into a cooking pan, lower the heat first and remove the pan from the heat source. Always keep your body and face away from the pan. I know, I know I sound like a mother…
I am sharing also some of my favorites pictures of home for me, Paris.
Happy Bastille Day and Bon Appetit!
