With an abundance of buttery vegetables served atop a high-quality steak, this dish looks as elegant as it tastes. Fortunately, you don't have to tell anyone how easy it is to prepare. What makes this dish special is the aroma of the vegetables and meat. Cook them carefully. For variety, substitute pork loin or chicken for the beef.

3 oz. bacon, cut into small pieces
2 medium potatoes, chopped
12 dried shiitake mushrooms
16 baby onions, peeled
12 white mushrooms
1 clove garlic, unpeeled
4 oz. butter

advance preparation

Melt remaining butter in another frying pan on high heat. Cook meat on both sides until browned.
Tips Do not season the meat with pepper before cooking or else the meat will taste bitter.

Add meat to the pan with the potatoes and mushrooms for a minute to allow the aroma of the mushrooms to flavor the meat. Season with salt and pepper.

Slice steak into four pieces. Place each piece on a plate and top with vegetables.
