Today is National Comfort Food Day and the weather is terrible here in NJ (just above freezing and rainy)! I'm sure that it is snowing in other parts of the State. The perfect day for comfort food. I have lots of favorite comfort foods (generally cheesy, high caloric foods :) but I was really in the mood for a steak sandwich. I rarely eat red meat but every once in a while I really crave it. The butcher had beautiful, thinly sliced, prime rib. I sauteed an onion and sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil. I seasoned the onions and mushrooms with salt, fresh pepper, and some fresh thyme. I added the thinly sliced meat after the onions and mushrooms were cooked and lastly added grated gruyere cheese. Served it on toasted rolls. Heavenly!
I also made The Pioneer Woman's Spinach Salad. It was fantastic! I love how Ree fixed what I don't like about most spinach salads, namely raw red onions and uncooked mushrooms. Carmelized onions and sauteed mushrooms are so much better. Perfect! Happy Saturday!
