Even you must be tired by now at looking at my Winter photos. Out of my so many friends, one of my BFF’s actually loves Winter. She told me this morning it is not that bad since this Winter has not reached blizzard proportion. And yes, she could not stand Summer.
For dinner tonight my friend cooked some tenderloin steak. I happened to spot some very fresh looking rapini at the grocery last weekend and I bought a bunch.
Rapini or broccoli raab is one of my favorite greens. It has small flowers that resembles broccoli however the similarity ends there. Rapini has a slightly bitter taste which makes it very unique. It is a rich source of vitamins.
I normally just stir fry it with Italian guanciale or bacon, with garlic, shallots and red pepper flakes. This time since we are having steak wrapped in bacon, I skipped adding any protein and I also squeezed half a lemon after cooking. It went very well with the steak.
It is a very quick side dish to make and flavorful.
