I love that my kids all cook, and so I covertly photographed my teenage son, Isaac, making his own breakfast: with mushrooms cooked in carménère, fresh garlic and butter and topped with sliced Anaheim pepper and lettuce. The best part was watching him pull out a porcelain plate and arrange the sandwich before setting it on the table to eat.
Isaac's Steak and Carménère Mushroom Sandwich
1 clove garlic, crushed
Top Sirloin Steak
Salt and Pepper
Slices of Anaheim Pepper
Saute mushrooms and pepper in wine and butter, set aside . Cook steak , rubbed in garlic and salt and pepper, in oil until medium-rare, while at the same time in the same pan, cook the pepper slices until tender-crisp. Toast bread, top with mushrooms, steak and peppers. Top with fresh lettuce. Eat. Repeat, if you are a teenage boy.
