Steaks with Vanilla Bacon Sauce, sizzled and sauced all in the same pan, are to die for, and show how surprisingly complementary vanilla is to bacon!
Ladies and gentlemen, I ask you to trust me on this one. I know this must sound like an unusual flavor combination, but I am telling you. THIS! 😱
Let me back up the bus a bit…
Singing Dog Vanilla company asked me if I could provide them with some allergy friendly recipes for their site, where vanilla is not just a shy character in the corner of the room at a thumping dance party, but an ingredient that takes its rightful space, front and center.
Ohhhhh myyyy… I do LOVE a creative challenge. Hence, the recipe before you. 😁
I think we all need to just take a moment to appreciate this ingredient – its velvety flavor, and warm fragrance. How often it has been relegated to the end of a cookie recipe! No, in its purest form, it is heaven.
This recipe uses two products that may be new to you: organic vanilla bean and vanilla sea salt from a grinder. Yes, both are suitable for the AIP. (For the whole explanation of vanilla for the AIP, please refer to this article by Dr. Sarah Ballantyne, aka The Paleo Mom.)
BTW, when you see the words “bourbon type” on vanilla, it refers to the type of plant, or the region in which it is grown, not booze. 😂
As part of an elegant meal at home
It is my mission to show you that you can cook a restaurant quality meal at home – even a fancy one! – for much less than a meal out. Here’s my suggestion for a gorgeous meal:
- Start with a sparkling mocktail, like No-alcohol Moscow Mules or a Pomegranate Rosemary Spritzer.
- Then, go to something light, like Apple Fennel Salad, just to whet the appetite.
- Next, bring on the steaks next to some AIP Mashed Potatoes, or Turnip Japanese Yam Mash.
- End your meal with Blackberry Lemon Panna Cotta. Yuuuuuummmm!
See? You can do this!!! 😀
