A Pittsburgh Girl
Iam a Pittsburgh girl. I never appreciated that till I moved to Cleveland. I never realized how my Pittsburgh values I was taught are important to me. I learned more about myself not being in my hometown.
Why because it made me realize I am a nice person. I will do anything for anyone. I have a big heart that I wear on my sleeve. I am one hell of a cook.
I am unique and I am a little different from the Cleveland girls. I am not ashamed that I like the colors black and gold over orange and brown. I am from a city that many things in medicine were discovered, like penicillin, transplants, the artificial heart. If you Google Pittsburgh and Medical discoveries you be surprised at how much you owe to Pittsburgh.
Anyway, I admit I have had a few things happen that really made me realize I am who I am. Love me or hate me, I can’t be anything but me. I think that is what is wrong with people, we get caught up with keeping up with the Jones to how we look instead of seeing what we are and appreciating it.
Pittsburgh Steak Pomme Frites Recipe
I never shied away from sharing my Pittsburgh culinary heritage. I got a whole recipe category here on Seduction in the Kitchen called Pittsburgh.
That is how much I adore this culinary heritage. There are ways we eat foods in the city of black and gold that might surprise you. The surprise is how good it is.
Steak salads in Pittsburgh are unique. They got fries on them. I never knew a steak salad didn’t come with fries until I moved to Cleveland.
I was in shock when I saw it had no fries on it. That was when I found out the fries was a Pittsburgh thing. The other thing about steak salad in Pittsburgh is it has to be with Ranch dressing. All I am going to say is: It’s a ‘Burg thing.
I have this fascination with pomme frites. They are simply a fancy name for french fries. I feel pomme frites allow you to be more creative with flavors the flavors, meaning you can really have fun with loaded fries.
Traditionally pomme frites are served in a cone. Well, I don’t have that but it is still great to do some “flavor” to the potatoes. I had been wanting to do another pomme frite recipe since I did Roasted Garlic and Rosemary Pomme Frites.
I just needed inspiration. One day I was craving a steak salad, but I can’t get my Pittsburgh Steak Salad here in Cleveland. I was going to just make one myself when the thought occurred to me, why not make the steak salad but instead make into pomme frites. Oh was it good, if your not a lettuce lover this will be right up your alley!
