when the tomatoes are bursting off the vine
i can't help but try and work them into every dinner
tonight is no different
i call these pizza tomatoes
your kitchen will smell like a pizzeria
you might want to have some good bread handy for a taste test
keeping it simple is the story of the day. i let my steak come to room temperature for about an hour. before throwing the steak on the grill, i rub it with a smashed garlic clove and drizzle a bit of olive oil on it. i season with a bit of salt and pepper and then grill it to a nice medium rare. just as it comes off the grill, i squeeze a bit of lemon on it.
as many small tomatoes as you can get your hands on
a handful of garlic cloves-peeled and smashed
lots of fresh herbs
oregano, thyme and rosemary
kosher or sea salt
balsamic vinegar (optional)
throw the tomatoes, garlic and herbs onto a sheet pan. drizzle with olive oil..be generous but don't let them swim in it. sprinkle on some salt and pepper and then pop into a 350F preheated oven. let cook until they burst and are all soft and gooey. remove from oven and then drizzle with just the tiniest bit of balsamic vinegar (if using).
you can eat these hot or room temperature. they are great with beef, chicken or even a nice piece of fish.
