Spicy garlic gnome....yum!

Greetings fellow gnomemunchers! I have a special treat for you today. A recipe from a fantastic troll chef. I met Nesta Longtusk on a trip to Sen’Jin Village. While relatively unknown outside the troll community, his skills with spices and spatula are sure to make him a culinary star! I give you this recipe with his blessing. Please enjoy!

Spicy garlic gnome steak
· 2 (10-ounce) boneless gnome top loin steaks, 1 inch thick, trimmed of fat
· 1 cup(s) (loosely packed) fresh parsley leaves, finely chopped
· 2 tablespoon(s) olive oil
· 1 tablespoon(s) red wine vinegar
· 1/2 teaspoon(s) dried oregano
· 1/4 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper
· 1 clove(s) garlic, crushed with press
· 3/4 teaspoon(s) salt
Heat grill pan on a medium fire until hot. Evenly season gnome steaks, on both sides, with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Sautee a tablespoon of minced garlic in 1 tablespoon of butter. Place gnome steaks in grill pan and cook 16 to 18 minutes for medium-rare, or until desired doneness, turning steaks over once.

While steaks are cooking, prepare sauce: In small bowl, with fork, mix parsley, oil, vinegar, oregano, crushed red pepper, garlic, and 1/4 teaspoon salt until blended.

Drizzle sauce over thinly sliced gnome steaks. Serve over beans and rice prepared as you like.

Hope you enjoy, and feel free to play with the spice mixture. Gnome is delicious in so many ways! Make this recipe your own! Good luck and good eating!
