Falling For You

Grilled Sirloin Tips with Portobello Sauce and Rosemary Pomme Frites:

It’s a warm Fall day and the temperature outside is 78 degrees. Fall in New England is one of our favorite times of year, with crisp mornings and bursts of rich colors from every view of our very wooded home. Although according to NOAA the record high was 86 degrees back in 1973, it’s still unusually warm for this time of year. The warm afternoon however was not my inspiration, which this time came from my beautiful wife V who proclaimed without hesitation early in the day – “Let’s have grilled steak on the deck tonight for dinner.” V and I rarely eat red meat, but when we do it is most assuredly a quality cut from regional farms, and most definitely grilled. I also never insult such fine cuts of meat with sauces, but given it is officially Fall in New England, a rustic and smoky Portobello sauce was sure to change my preconception.
