Now is certainly the time to indulge and I have the perfect way to do so. Here is a twist on such the traditional Reuben.
What you'll need;
- Olive oil
- Pickling spice
- Cooked flank steak
- Shitake mushrooms
- Rye bread
- Thousand Island dressing
- Drained -gruyere cheese or swiss -shredded lettuce
How you'll do it:
- In a saute pan heat your olive oil, mushrooms, pickling spice and mushrooms .
- Add your steak and season the steak with salt and pepper on each side, searing each side -remove from heat; let rest for about five minutes then slice thinly in a diagonal pattern.
- Take your bread, add your cheese to the bottom of the bread, shredded lettuce, your sliced steak and pile with the mushrooms, sauerkraut and dressing
*Hint - Toast your rye bread as well before adding your steak; completely your preference I say it's best when enjoyed with a fantastic ice cold Ipswich Winter Ale; which can be found at Haley's.
They have the best price on Ipswich at a bargain value of $11.99 per 12 pack. Can't beat it.
So now on to the weekly review; my mouth is watering just thinking of it! My all time favorite place in Marblehead has got to be the Barnacle Restaurant.
On Wednesdays they have a twin lobster special for only $24.99...can't beat it! For appetizers you will absolutely savor the most amazing potato skins, the most crispy and tasty wings and drums and so much more.
For seafood fans the mussels and steamers are absolute heaven. For a main course you're in for a treat with any of the seafood entrees they serve up; completely cooked to perfection.
The biggest issue you'll have is deciding what to choose.
With nightly seafood specials and an already fantastic menu; it's hard to choose what you'll indulge in that night but if you are choosing from the menu; one of the rock star dishes has got to be the haddock, which is baked tender and covered in swiss cheese and toasted almonds...simply to die for.
