Brett on the Paper and Linda on the Tube

Aug 1, 2012

On this week's Louisiana Eats!, we'll hear from Brett Anderson about his career as a food critic in New Orleans and what he's experienced at The Times-Picayune since it announced cutbacks earlier this summer. Then we'll speak with chef Linda Green about her victorious battle on the Food Network's Chopped.

Steak Florentine Poppy Style (Serves 4 – 6)

2 lb. flank steak

4 tablespoons butter, softened

1 bunch watercress

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Spread softened butter on one side of flank steak.  Sprinkle liberally with salt and black pepper.  Place flank steak on a broiler pan and broil for 5 – 7 minutes.  Remove from broiler and place on a carving board.  Cover and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thinly across the grain.

Make a dressing by mixing together lemon juice and olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper.  Toss with watercress and serve on top of steak slices.
