Easy & Awesome Ribeye with Fennel & Apple!!

Posted on Nov 20, 2012 in Catering

Okay, I made this dish the other day and want to share it because it was amazing! The dish is rib-eye steak, topped with Gorgonzola cheese, served with candied onion, apple and fennel.

You will need:

  • One rib-eye steak
  • One medium yellow onion
  • One fennel bulb
  • One Gala apple (or of another crisp variety)
  • 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup of sherry wine
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • tablespoon of sugar
  • tablespoon of coriander (optional but preferred)

Here’s the breakdown:

  1. Take one rib-eye steak and leave it out for a half hour. (This is important)
  2. While that is coming to room temp begin cutting the veggies you will need.
    1. Take the onion, remove the husk, cut off the ends, and cut it lengthwise. Take each half, laid cut side down, and cut it into about five or six pieces. like a thick julienne cut.
    2. Take the fennel, and repeat the process.
    3. Take the apple, remove the skin, and cut lengthwise. Cut it in half again, to make quarters.
    4. With a knife, cut out the core, and then cut the pieces in half lengthwise once more, for
    5. Eight pieces total per apple.
  3. In a bowl, mix the sherry wine, sugar, vinegar, water, and coriander.
  4. Put the veggies into a baking pan, or on a baking sheet. The more shallow the sides the
    better really.
  5. Pour the mixture over the veggies, and place the pan into a 425 degree oven, for about
    30 minutes.
  6. Rub the steak with a mixture of salt, pepper, and garlic powder, and sprinkle oil on each
  7. Place steak on a preheated grill, and cook to desired temperature. (I prefer mid-rare,
    which is roughly five minutes a side, all depending on grill temp)
  8. Put the steak on a plate, and put a dollop of Gorgonzola on top.
  9. Remove the veggies from the oven (they should be wilted and slightly browned at this
  10. Put them on the plate too, and enjoy
