There is a law in the United States that mandates the preparation of grilled foods on Labor Day - look it up if you don’t believe me.
Most folks opt for the easy stuff: hamburgers and hot dogs. It’s what we do to celebrate most long holiday weekends here at Chez Elisson, too... but not this time. For that, you can thank the geniuses at Publix who decided to run a weekend-long sale on honkin’ big ribeye steaks. Presented for your delectation, our Labor Day Menu...
Grilled bone-in ribeye steaks
Fregola, toasted pine nuts and cacao nibs
Cilantro salad, pickled red onions and Fresno peppers
Broccolini, piment d’espelette
Sautéed wild mushrooms, smoked paprika
