Izzy came over again and I made a steak. A perfect steak, really. This is what I did: defrosted a rib-eye in the fridge overnight. Made a marinade that I invented in my head: juice from half a lemon, olive oil, 1 small shallot and 2 cloves garlic plus chili powder, salt, pepper, and a little bit of cumin. Marinated on a plate for about half an hour before pan frying about 4-5 minutes each side (covering the steak for the last 1 minutes on each side). It was perfectly medium and delicious (the lemon juice added a nice tang!).
That weird blue sheen is from my TV. I also sauteed some kohlrabi with garlic, and Izzy made tomatoes and eggs, a very traditional Chinese dish that her mom made all the time for her. We ate it with rice. It was yum.
