Michael Symon: Sirloin Cutlet Recipe
Michael Symon is a wizard. Well, he might not be based on the reality that wizards don’t exist. But if they did, he would be one. He can cook a delicious meal in under five minutes. “That’s impossible!” you say? I agree, hence the previous wizard statement. But he most certainly exists and most certainly can cook a delectable sirloin cutlet and peppers in five minutes. Lets take a look at the ingredient count:
4 Sirloin Cutlets, 1 bunch Fresh Oregano (chopped), 1 Red Onion (sliced), 1 Red Bell Pepper (sliced), 1 pound Arugula, 1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar (divided), 1/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil, 1 cup Chicken Stock, 1/4 cup Flour, 3 cloves garlic (sliced) and Salt and Pepper.
Given that you’re taking all that and cooking it in five minutes there really aren’t a lot of steps.
The Chew: Sirloin & Peppers Recipe in 5 Minutes
Take the sirloin cutlets, cover them in flour, sear both sides of them in a skillet and because they’re very thin, they’ll cook very fast. How fast? Less than five minutes fast, figure it out.
Once they’re seared, take the cutlets out and set them aside. Take everything else that isn’t arugula, chop it up if it’s choppable and throw it in the skillet. When it’s all soft, put the cutlets back in, throw the arugula on top and serve pretty much whenever you feel like. We’re nearing the five minute mark here.
It serves four and costs $2.92 per serving. That price absolutely can’t be right. I mean, really. Tell me that’s not wizardry at work. I don’t even know what I believe in anymore. Zebras are walking on the moon, bananas are eating humans, the dinosaurs have all come back to life and work at Goldman Sachs. $2.92 per serving of pan seared steak and peppers made in five minutes. Can you come up with any sort of rational explanation for that? So we’re agreed, Michael Symon learned to cook at Hogwarts.
