Five Star Foodie's Spicy Aioli atop Grilled Bison Steaks:Guest Post

>> Friday, May 21, 2010

Today I have a very special treat for you guys, Natasha the 5 Star Foodie is stopping by to share one of her 5 Star recipes. Natasha was the winner of my first giveaway, she won a Le Creuset mortar and pestle set, As part of the price she was invited to share with us a recipe using her brand new mortar and pestle. Kindly Natasha accepted and wait till you see what she cooked up. I'm sure many of you know Natasha's blog 5 Star Foodie, and are well aware of what a truly amazing and talented cook she is. Her recipes are well, just mouthwatering delicious! But they are not just for us grown ups she has many family friendly recipes for all of you looking to cook scrumptious meals the whole family will love. Alright I can't keep you guys waiting any longer , so here it is ( you can start drooling now) :

A few weeks ago I was lucky to win a mortar and pestle in a giveaway at Spicie Foodie blog. I was very excited as I've been wanting to get this essential kitchen tool for a while. It is great for grinding spices or preparing homemade pesto, guacamole, or aioli. I find it especially useful for making these recipes in very small portions. Today, I'd like to share a recipe for aioli with spicy picante peppers served atop grilled bison steaks.


2 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
4-5 small whole sweet picante peppers, peeled, seeds removed, chopped
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

2 bison steak fillets, about 6 ounces each
1 tablespoon oil
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon crushed black peppercorns


Place garlic and salt together in the mortar and mash slowly with the pestle.

Add picante peppers and grind the garlic and peppers together into a paste. Whisk in the egg yolk with a wire whisk. Add the oil in a slow stream while whisking with a pestle until the mixture achieves the consistency of mayonnaise. Strain through a fine mesh if necessary.

Brush the steaks with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill for about 3-4 minutes per side. Place the steaks on the plates and let them sit for 1-2 minutes. Spoon the spicy picante pepper aioli on top of each steak. Serve with corn sauté or fried potatoes.

Thank you Natasha for sharing such a delicious recipe :) , I can't wait to try your spicy Aioli. I also want to remind you guys to submit your smoothie or shake recipe with a twist for this month's 5 Star Makeover, there's a neat prize too. I'm working on mine for my first entry, can't wait!

Hey Natasha & Spicie Foodie, this sounds delicious. I normally make a sriracha aioli, and, being that I am obviously into such things, I will try this one-looks wonderful over that steak (great photo)!
Glad to find your blog Spicie Foodie!

Great job Natasha...
