Surf 'N Turf for Two
2 rib-eye steaks (sub with chuck, sirloin or T-bone if desired)
Salt & black pepper to taste
1/2 LB fresh button mushrooms, cleaned & sliced
2 TBS butter (for cooking mushrooms)
2 whole lobsters
Trim fat on the edge of steaks; place on a broiler pan or grill two inches away from heat. Steak Doneness: Cook for five minutes on each side for rare steak, six minutes on each side for medium steaks, or seven minutes on each side for well-done steaks. Season with salt and black pepper. Melt two tablespoons butter in a skillet; add sliced mushrooms. Sauté until mushrooms are soft; remove from heat. In a large cooking pot, bring water to a boil. Add a few pinches of salt. Place whole lobsters in boiling water; reduce heat slightly. Simmer, uncovered, for about eight to twelve minutes or until lobster shells turn bright red in color and meat is tender. Arrange lobsters and steaks on dinner plates; top steaks with sautéed mushrooms. Suggestion: Serve with Lemon Butter.
Culinary Note: "Surf 'N Turf" is defined as a main course whereby seafood and meat are combined. Lobster can be substituted with crab, scallops or shrimp.
