Table of Contents


Few phrases gladden a carnivore’s coronary heart greater than this one: steak. Rib-eye, filet mignon, Porterhouse, even the once-humble skirt steak—are wealthy and celebratory meats, and at at present’s costs, a little bit of a splurge.

And whereas we love steaks seasoned merely with coarse salt and pepper and expertly charred over dwell fireplace, we had been intrigued by a preparation for Persian steak described to us by Steven’s buddy, California-based architect Marco Brambilla. Marco definitely comes by his ardour for world grilling naturally: he was born in Iran of an Armenian mom and Italian father. He speaks 9 languages (and reads a couple of useless ones) and has labored as an architect all through Europe, the Center and Close to East, Asia, and naturally the U.S. His grilling is as polyglot as his language abilities and over the subsequent few months, you’ll be studying about Marco’s grilled eggs and saffron rooster.

The steak known as “barg kebab,” or “leaf kebab” (barg is the Farsi time period for leaf), it’s beefsteak marinated in a mix of onion or onion juice, saffron-infused water, salt, and pepper, and grilled over a sizzling fireplace, and served with rice and char-grilled greens.

Right here is how Marco described it to Steven in a current e-mail (accompanied by photographs):
