Okay, so there is no competition but for anyone out there looking for the ultimate in indulgence when it comes to steaks–look no further!
Mike went all out with this meal and you can bet we were rubbing our food babies satisfaction at the end of dinner.
The best part hands down was the bacon hollandaise smothered all over those perfectly cooked pieces of grade A Alberta beef!
Another awesome addition was the eggplant salad courtesy made by Theo’s Greek Kouzina booth from the downtown farmer’s market.
Mere days before Mike and I departed on our vacation we had this delectable meal.
Any barbecue lover will appreciate the efforts of such a dish. Mike marinated steak and pork ribs for a few hours before braving our Edmonton, Alberta winter.
Yes, he stood outside and barbecued in -25 to -30 degrees celsius!
The marinade of course was a secret because all great marinade recipes are…at least that’s what I’m told. However, he did let me know the purple beets and golden potatoes were roasted off in the barbecue. He even made the effort to put together some homemade garlic butter for the bread. As you can see everything on the plate has that delicious char promising every bite will be barbecued bliss. I do enjoy an alliteration here or there 🙂
Now to give a little bit more background on what we do at the Farmer’s Market i’ve got to say we go almost every Saturday and sometimes Sundays to another market for our weekly produce.
Saturdays are mainly devoted to the Downtown Edmonton market and sometimes the Strathcona market.
We have only gone on one Sunday to market after I discovered a French Market in the heart of the Edmonton Francophone community called La Cite’ Francophone over by Bonnie Doon Mall. It was a lot of fun with French music playing, a small bistro/cafe’ and an area to sit and enjoy the morning.
This picture is of our haul from one of our days going to the downtown market.
Here we have:

One of our best produce days yet!
