I have a love/hate relationship with social media. It's been a great tool to help me stay connected to people that I don't get to see very often and reconnect with old friends that live far away. I also find that social media is a great way to connect with clients and I actually take a lot of catering orders through my social media accounts. I also scroll through Twitter looking for restaurant suggestions and I search Pinterest for recipe ideas when I need inspiration.
There are a lot of reasons to LOVE social media but I also find social media content that irritates me on a daily basis. I feel hypocritical when I criticize social media though because I've got multiple accounts on Facebook and accounts on Instagram, SnapChat, Twitter AND Pinterest. They're a great source of information but sometimes it's far too much information. (Facebook users know what I'm talking about.) Facebook users, please don't be offended by my scrutiny but I'm NOT interested in taking your surveys, "sharing" your chain status on my wall or donating to your child's hamster fund.
I'm sure that some of these very same people that I criticize for over sharing, would condemn me for posting too many food pictures on social media. I've actually had people hide my posts and unfollow me because they didn't want to look at my food porn. (Again: Pot - kettle) I willingly admit to over posting food pictures.
So here I go again - adding another recipe to social media that is already saturated with recipes. The difference is this. I actually made this recipe in my own home. I took pictures along the way to help you follow the step by step instructions. AND this is a real recipe and not just the abbreviated Facebook version created in high speed motion with the snap of a finger.
1 cup chicken broth
1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
3 Tablespoons olive oil
4 (6 ounce) top sirloin steaks
1/2 onion, chopped fine
1 Tablespoon flour
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
3/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon sweet Marsala
4 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon minced fresh parsley
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Stir in parsley, lemon juice and 1 T. Marsala. Season with salt and pepper. Slice steaks thin and serve sauce over steak.
I don't feel like I accurately captured this steak marsala in photographs. The pictures on this post don't really do this recipe justice. Don't be fooled by the awkward pictures - this recipe really is delicious.
