STRIP LOIN STEAKS WITH TEXAS GARLIC SAUCE
7 garlic cloves 1 egg yolk, poached 1/2 cup olive oil 1 tablespoon vegetable oil 4 (8 oz.) strip loin steaks, trimmed of fat Salt and pepper
Heat half of vegetable oil in large heavy bottomed frying pan over high heat. When oil starts to smoke, add 2 steaks and sear 3 minutes without touching. Turn steaks over and season generously. Reduce heat to medium high and sear second side 3 to 4 minutes for rare meat. For medium-rare, turn steaks a third time and cook another 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat. Remove steaks from pan and keep hot in oven while cooking other 2 steaks. Garlic Sauce: Peel garlic cloves and place them in small saucepan. Pour in 1 cup water and bring to boil. Continue cooking 4 to 5 minutes. Can poach egg yolk at this time. Drain cloves well, place in mortar and mash. Add egg yolk and incorporate using pestle. (Can use blender). Incorporate olive oil in thin stream, whisking constantly. Continue mixing until sauce is very thick. Pour through wire sieve and set aside.
To serve, ladle garlic sauce over one end of steaks and accompany with steamed vegetables of your choice.
