Black Iron Skillet-Seared Sirloin Strip @ Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse
Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse was the realization of an idea the Brennan family (one part of it, anyway) had twenty years earlier: to open a restaurant serving first class steaks, but with a simple menu and a masculine touch. The centerpiece of the menu was the steak that had been served in some of the Brennan’s other restaurants, notably Commander’s Palace. It was a USDA Prime sirloin encrusted in a black iron skillet. The dish later gave birth to a more famous offspring–blackened redfish. But it’s more than a little good on its own.
