3 pounds london broil steak
3 cups aromatic cannellini beans - master recipe
1 1/4 cups fresh basil leaf -- packed
1 cup italian parsley -- packed
1 garlic clove
1/2 cup parmesan cheese -- freshly grated
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water
salt and pepper -- to taste
THIS IS A LEFT-OVER RECIPE FOR USE WITH THE AROMATIC CANNELLINI BEANS MASTER RECIPE.
Remove the steak and beans from the refrigerator to take off a bit of the chill.
Meanwhile, prepare a pesto by placing the basil, parsley, garlic and Parmesan in a food processor fitted with the metal blade. Process until finely chopped, then scrape down the sides of the bowl. With the motor running, pour in the olive oil, then the water, in a thin stream.
Mix the beans with half the pesto, season with salt. Set beans and remaining pesto aside.
Season the steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill, turning once, until just rare in the center, about 12 minutes total. remove from the grill and lst stand for 5 minutes, then cut across the grain into very thin slices.
Divide the beans among dinner plates. Top with 2-3 slices of grilled steak and drizzle with some of the remaining pesto.
This may serve 6 in your family -- it only serves 4 in mine.
Suggested Wine: Australian Shiraz-Cabernet
NOTES : Serve with marinated roasted red peppers; follow with Brandied Figs
