Viewer Jenni's original recipe (Which Chef Fabio says is DELICIOUS AS IT IS):
Garlic Rosemary Steak w/ Alfredo Pasta
Steak: season with salt + pepper
Cooking Method: Use cast iron skillet, make sure it’s extremely hot, add olive oil, garlic cloves (sauté for a bit). Add butter + rosemary sprigs. Add steak & sear on each side (2-3 minutes each side). Then take steak + cast iron and leave in oven to cook until desired temperature (medium-rare, medium, etc). Take out of oven and rest steak on a wooden cutting board for a few minutes before serving.
Pasta: Boil hot water + milk (I usually do 3 parts water, 1 part milk) + salt. Add fettuccine pasta. Cook noodles until soft. Drain pasta + shock it.
Alfredo Sauce: Heat pan. Add 2 TBSP of olive oil + a bit of butter and melt. Add chopped garlic cloves and sauté. Add heavy whipping cream and stir. As it thickens, I add shredded mozzarella, parmessan, a bit of cream cheese too. Seasoning for sauce: pepper, salt, and Italian seasoning. For garnish—chopped parsley
TIPS FROM FABIO ON HOW TO MODIFY THE RECIPE
• Use roasted garlic rub, chopped rosemary and black pepper mixed with oil and brush on surface
• Don’t salt the meat until AFTER you flip it
• Add melted brown butter to sauce, cream and parmesan and pecorino (75/25 ratio), eliminate the mozzarella as it will make it too think
• Note - the brown butter will add a good nuttiness to it and great depth of flavor
