Someone told me about an Italian steak dish called "Steak ala Mama". Does anyone know how to make this? It sounds like it should be very tastey.
I've never heard of it but when I googled up steak ala mama I found many restaurants that serve it but no recipes and every reference said 'garlic butter sauce' - some with mushrooms some with wine - but all seem to have garlic and butter - sounds like you could do almost anything you wanted to as long as you use garlic and butter!
I've been traveling and now I'm settled in for a bit of a vacation and so I've just gotten back to the computer - I had sent a note to Hawk from the cooking forum and here's what he said - he's a nice Italian boy and so I thought he might know what this is ;)
I' ve heard of this but never made it.
I think it is basically a Steak cooked with Onions , Wine and Butter w Garlic.
My MIL ; I think, did just about the same thing with a Porterhouse Steak.
She used a large Cast Iron frying pan very hot. Seered the Steak in Butter and garlic, turned the heat down, Poured in a little homemade Chanti and added the simmered Onions and a little butter and Garlic. Didn't cook it too long.
