On one of our trips to Paris we stayed in the area of Saint Germain des Pres. (6th arr.) where there were a number are excellent Bistros. Each one had a few varied items on their menu, but they all had steak and frites. Some were excellent and others had cuts of meat that were not the best quality. However, each and every one had delicious french fries.
One of our favorite bistros was called Le Nemrod on Rue de Cherche-Midi.
We always enjoyed a decent meal there, the wine was good, the atmosphere was quite interesting, and it was within walking distance of the hotel.
This week’s recipe brought back lots of nice memories.
I purchased a rib-eye steak, seasoned it well with the spices that were recommended and chilled it for a few hours.
The mustard butter was easy to prepare and so delicious on the steak.
But to me, the best part were the potatoes. Roasting them in the oven at such a high temperature really made them crispy but still tender on the inside.
