    One cool thing about that dish I posted is that at the restaurant they cook it right in front of you.

    Serves 6
    Total preparation time: 45 minutes, plus 30 minutes to 2 hours for marinating before grilling

    INGREDIENTS
    3 to 3-1/2 pounds boneless sirloin or rib steak, about 2 inches thick
    1/2 cup soy sauce
    1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    2 teaspoons ground cumin

    Vegetable oil cooking spray


    DIRECTIONS

    1. Trim the outer fat, or ask the butcher to do so.
    2. Combine the soy sauce, lemon juice, oil, cumin, cayenne, scallions, jalapeno, garlic, and pepper in a glass or ceramic bowl. Put the steaks in a glass or ceramic dish and pour the marinade over the meat. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes or refrigerate for as long as 2 hours. Turn the meat once or twice and return to room temperature if refrigerated before grilling.

    3. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Lightly spray the grill rack with vegetable oil cooking spray. The coals should be moderately hot to hot.

    4. Lift the steak from the marinade. Discard the marinade. Grill the steak, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes. Turn and grill, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes longer for medium rare, or until it reaches the desired degree of doneness. Let the meat rest for a few minutes before carving. Transfer to a warmed serving platter.

    Leon's Grilled Standing Rib Roast

    Serves 12 to 14
    Total preparation time: 2-1/2 to 3 hours

    INGREDIENTS
    7-bone standing rib roast (about 14 pounds)
    Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Juice of 1 lemon
    2 to 3 cabbage leaves
    Pale ale, such as Sierra Nevada, for basting (i love leon :D :D :D :D )
    Leon’s Sauce (recipe follows)
    Vegetable-oil cooking spray


    DIRECTIONS
    1. Using a sharp knife, make a small slit in the roast’s fat. Remove the meat from the bone (or have your butcher do it for you, reserving the bone). Season well with salt and pepper. Squeeze the lemon juice over the fat to prevent flare-ups. Using kitchen twine, tie the bones to the meat.

    2. Place 2 to 3 cabbage leaves on the meat side of the roast. Tie the leaves onto the roast with twine in several places to prevent the meat from burning.

    3. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill, arranging the coals for indirect cooking. Lightly coat the grilling rack with cooking spray. The coals should be moderately hot to hot.

    4. Over the hottest part of the grill, sear the meat on the bone side and the narrow sides, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Sear the meat side, about 3 minutes. Use tongs when turning roast to avoid unnecessary punctures, so the meat retains as much moisture as possible.

    5. Transfer the roast, bone side down, to the cooler part of the grill. Cover the grill, and cook 25 minutes. Baste with ale, and turn roast; cook 15 minutes more. Continue grilling, turning and basting occasionally with ale. Remove the cabbage leaves after 45 minutes. One hour into the cooking time, insert an instant-read thermometer into the thickest part of the meat, not too close to a bone. Continue cooking until thermometer registers between 135° and 140°, 1 hour and 10 minutes to 1 hour and 20 minutes. Remove roast from grill, and let rest 5 to 10 minutes before carving.

    Leon's Sauce
    Makes about 1 1/2 cups
    Total preparation time: 10 minutes

    INGREDIENTS
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup red wine, such as a dry burgundy
    2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
    1 tablespoon unsalted butter
    8 ounces white button mushrooms, sliced 1/8 inch thick
    10 sprigs curly parsley, chopped
    2 tablespoons demi-glace
    Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper

    DIRECTIONS
    Heat the olive oil until bubbling and hot, about 1 minute, in a medium skillet set over medium-high heat. Remove skillet from heat; add the wine, garlic, butter, mushrooms, parsley, and demi-glace. Season with salt and pepper. Return to heat, and cook, stirring often, until mushrooms are tender and the sauce is thick and reduced enough to coat the back of a wooden spoon, 5 to 7 minutes. Store in an airtight container, refrigerated, for up to 1 week.

    Lobel's Roasted Leg of Lamb with Currant Jelly

    Serves 6 to 8

    INGREDIENTS
    8 slices bacon
    3 1/2- to 4-pound boneless leg of lamb
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 large onion, thinly sliced
    6 tablespoons currant jelly, plus more for garnish

    DIRECTIONS
    1. Heat a medium skillet over medium-low heat. Place the bacon in the pan and cook until some of the fat is rendered but the bacon has not browned. Drain bacon on paper towels. Preheat oven to 350° F.

    2. Rub the lamb with the oregano, and season with salt and pepper. Allow lamb to reach room temperature and let stand for 1 hour.

    3. Place lamb in a heavy roasting pan. Arrange bacon over top of lamb in a crisscross pattern. Top with the onion slices. Cook 15 minutes.

    Pan-Cooked Veal Chops with Light Herb-Cream Sauce

    Serves 6

    INGREDIENTS
    6 tablespoons Canola oil
    6 large veal porterhouse (loin) chops, about 1¼ inches thick
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons chopped scallions
    1 clove garlic, mashed
    1/2 cup white wine or veal or chicken broth
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme or tarragon
    3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
    3 tablespoons veal or chicken broth
    1/4 cup heavy cream

    DIRECTIONS
    1. In a heavy skillet fitted with a lid, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil over med-high heat. Brown the chops in the hot oil, cooking 2 or 3 at a time. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side until nicely brown. Transfer to a plate, season lightly with salt and pepper, and cover with foil to keep warm.

    2. Pour the fat from the pan and wipe it clean with a paper towel. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil in the pan. Cook the scallions for about 2 minutes, stirring, until softened. Add the garlic and cook for 30 to 40 seconds longer, just until fragrant. Add the wine and herbs and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes until well mixed.

    3. Return the chops to the skillet and turn them once or twice to coat with the pan juices. Cover and cook over medium heat for about 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in a thick, meaty chop registers 140 F for medium-rare meat. Baste the meat several times during cooking.

    4. Transfer the chops to a platter and cover to keep warm. Put the cream in the hot skillet and stir for a few moments to heat it. Pour the broth and cream into the skillet and cook, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes until the sauce thickens, reduces slightly, and is heated through. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper, if needed.

    5. Pour the sauce over the chops and serve immediately.

    Saltimbocca

    Serves 4

    INGREDIENTS
    8 veal scaloppine, about 2 ounces each
    2 cups Parmesan cheese, grated
    8 slices prosciutto ham
    2 tablespoons brandy
    4 tablespoons butter
    4 tablespoons oil
    1 clove garlic, crushed
    1/2 teaspoon thyme
    Salt and freshly ground pepper
    1 tablespoon tomato paste
    3/4 cup beef broth
    1/2 cup Marsala wine
    2 tablespoons butter
    8 large mushroom caps
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    2 tablespoons cornstarch
    2 tablespoons parsley, chopped

    DIRECTIONS
    1. Place the thin veal slices on wax paper. Sprinkle the cheese over the meat and cover with wax paper. Press the cheese well into the meat.

    2. Remove top wax paper and place a slice of prosciutto on top of the cheese. Brush on brandy and roll up carefully, securing with string.

    3. Place the butter and oil in a large skillet. When sizzling, brown the veal rolls on all sides.

    4. Remove the meat and to the juices in skillet add the garlic, thyme, salt and pepper, tomato paste, beef broth, and Marsala wine. Stir to combine the ingredients and bring to a boil. Return the veal rolls to the pan. Reduce heat, cover skillet, and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until tender. Transfer the veal to a hot platter and remove the strings. Cover loosely with foil.

    5. In another pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter until hot but not smoking, and sauté the mushrooms. Set aside.

    6. Add the lemon juice to the pan used to sauté the veal, and adjust seasoning. Mix the cornstarch with a little water and add gradually to the sauce, stirring constantly and adding just enough of the cornstarch mixture to thicken the sauce slightly.

    7. Pour the sauce around the Saltimbocca, and garnish with the mushroom caps. Sprinkle parsley over the finished dish.

    Classic Veal Osso Buco

    Serves 4

    INGREDIENTS
    4 meaty veal shanks, cut 2 1/2 inches thick from the hind shank
    3 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 medium carrot, minced
    1 medium onion, minced
    1 stalk celery
    1 cup dry white wine
    1 cup veal or chicken stock
    3 medium tomatoes, peeled, seed and chopped
    Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

    GREMOLATA INGREDIENTS
    1/2 cup parsley leaves, minced fine
    2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
    2 cloves garlic, minced

    DIRECTIONS
    1. Select a heavy-bottomed pot with a cover, just large enough to hold the veal shanks in one layer. Combine the butter and the oil in the pot and heat until hot but not smoking. Add the veal, and brown well on all sides over moderate heat.

    2. Transfer the veal to a platter. Add the vegetables to the pot, and cook until just softened, about 5 minutes.

    3. Return the veal to the pot and add the white wine, the stock and the tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover the pot and bring to a boil, and then turn heat to low. Simmer gently for about 1 1/2 hours, turning the meat occasionally, and adding a little additional stock to the pot if necessary. The osso buco is done when the meat is very tender, and the sauce is slightly thickened. Transfer the osso buco to a platter and keep warm.

    4. Prepare the gremolata. Combine the parsley, lemon zest and garlic in a small bowl. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the gremolata over the osso buco and serve on warm dinner plates.

    snort's note: notice that the trinity is not used on this dish (green pepper, onion, celery) but a mirepoix is instead (carrots, onion, celery).....trinity is unique to louisiana (at least according to emeril live.....i mean i haven't been to every freakin' place in the world so i wouldn't have a clue).
