Today a friend dropped of a bag of garden fresh veggies that included several large green tomatoes.
I took several of them and after washing them, sliced them into thick slabs, saving the ends to make green tomato relish later on.
I seasoned some flour with salt and pepper, poured a little milk into another dish and then seasoned some pangratta (fine dry bread crumbs) with some grana (equal blend of grated reggio parmigiana and Romano cheeses).
First I dipped the tomato slices into the flour and then into the milk and then into the breadcrumbs and let the set whilst I made a little marinara sauce. I took a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes in juice and put them into the mixer cup of the milkshake machine to puree tomatoes. I took a large clove of garlic and minced that and picked a few sprigs of fresh basil that was coarsely chopped. I heated extravrigin olive oil in a sauce pan and added the garlic and sauteed that until there was nice garlic aroma and then added the pureed tomatoes along with the basil. I then added a dab of butter and a few twists of fresh ground black pepper and let the marinara simmer on very low heat.
I placed the old heavy cast iron griddle on the stove and heated it up whilst making up a couple of hamburger steaks seasoned with some of the seasoned breadcrumbs.
When the griddle was up to heat, (both electric burners set on medium), I placed the steaks on the grill and then adding a little olive oil to the grill, added the breaded tomato slices and let them grill until the breading had a nice brown look to it.
I ladled a little of the marinara on the serving plates and then place the fried green tomatoes on top and the added a little more marinara on top of that and garnished them with some grana.
A tossed green salad was served.
No barbecue was served.
many thanks for the recipe i will give a try.
