Father's Day made easy and delicious for CBC's Weekend Morning Show

Today on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with host Nadia Kidwai, I presented the following dishes to make Father's Day easy and delicious.  Many of the ingredients are found at the St. Norbert's Farmer's MarketSteak and Eggs with grilled asparagus. 

Steak and Eggs

1 ribeye steak per person  (wonderful ribeye steak from Wildfire Farms, and available at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market)
Dijon Mustard
Birch Syrup (very versatile Birch Syrup is available at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market from The Canadian Birch Company)
salt and pepper, to taste
olive oil, drizzles
1 egg per steak (Nature's Farm carries the most wonderful golden yolk eggs!  Available at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market)

Mix enough Dijon mustard and Birch Syrup to cover both sides of each steak.  Cover the steaks and let sit at room temperature until ready to grill, cool in the fridge if a longer period of time.

Heat the grill to medium high heat.  Drizzle olive oil over the steaks and place on a hot grill.  Let cook for 2 minutes before turning, not flipping, so as to create grill marks.  Let cook for two minutes more and flip.  Repeat cooking for two minutes, turn for grill marks, and let cook for another two minutes.  Remove from grill and let rest for about 5 minutes.  Season while resting as the meat will be open to absorbing more flavours.

Serve with a soft cooked egg, over-easy or sunny-side up on top of the steak.  The yolk creates a creamy sauce-like texture over the steak.  Or, if you prefer, place the soft egg over the grilled asparagus.

Grilled Asparagus

1 bunch asparagus, bottoms trimmed  (I used Fertile Farm asparagus, available at St. Norbert's Farmer's Market)
drizzle good sesame oil
lemon zest
seasoned sesame seeds
salt and pepper, to taste

After flipping the steaks, add the asparagus that has a good drizzle of sesame oil on it.  Let cook for two minutes and flip.  Remove from the heat and add lemon zest, and seasoned sesame seeds.
