This Is How You Empty A Fridge

Ginger Filet of Beef

1 6-8 oz sirloin or filet
kosher salt
1 T ginger-scallion oil

Pan-sear the filet and finish in the oven as described here, but without peppercorns. Spoon the ginger-scallion oil over the meat immediately after removing from the oven and allow to rest.

Passionfruit Curried Cauliflower

half-dozen cauliflower florets, quartered
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 jalapeño, seeded and chopped
pinch kosher salt
1 T olive oil
1/2 c passionfruit juice drink
1 T green curry paste
1 t cornstarch
5 canned white asparagus spears
1/2 small cucumber, chopped
handful cilantro leaves, chopped
1 lemon wedge

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Saute the cauliflower, onion, and jalapeño with a pinch of kosher salt until they just start to soften. Add the passionfruit drink and curry paste, stir to mix, and bring to a low boil until the liquid reduces by about a third. Mix the cornstarch in a little water to make a slurry, add and stir until thickened. Remove from heat and add the cilantro, asparagus, and cucumber. Squeeze in the lemon just before serving.

Served with leftover miso rice.
