Today with DVC Cooking join Ben Mehlan as he prepares the Steak that was offered at the Town Square restaurant now known as Tony’s Town Square in Magic Kingdom when it opened in 1971!

Ingredients

  • Steak
  • 2 tbsp Butter

  • 2 cloves Garlic

  • 1 sprig Rosemary

  • 1 steak Sirloin of choice

  • Spiced Fruit
  • 1 package Pineapple Chunks or Rounds

  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar

  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper

Directions

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Letting your steak come closer to room temperature produces the best results. Season with salt and pepper and, if you have time, let sit on your counter for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  • Place your pineapple in a bowl and thoroughly combine all ingredients. It will seem like too much sugar at first – keep bringing everything together and eventually you will leave only a thick sauce on the bottom. We’ll use that later!
  • Heat a pan on medium heat – no higher – until water sizzles brightly on the pan. Add your butter and quickly swirl it around. It will brown and that’s good, just don’t let it burn! Smash your garlic and add it with the rosemary, continuing to swirl just until aromatic. Add the steak and sear. You’re not looking for color here, just a good sear. Sear on all sides and you’re ready to go in the oven. Cook for 8-10 minutes* and that’s it, you’re done!
  • During this 8-10 minutes, lay your pineapple out on a baking sheet or oven griddle. Leave the leftover glaze from the pineapple in the bowl.
  • For doneness, use your non-writing hand as a touch test. Touch your thumb to your fingers and with your writing hand, feel the palm below your thumb. Index finger is rare, middle finger is medium rare, ring finger is medium, and pinky finger is well done.
  • Transfer the meat and let it rest while you cook your pineapple. Switch the oven to broil. Broil your pineapple for 4 minutes on one side, flip them with a pair of tongs, spoon your leftover glaze, and broil 3 minutes on the other side. That’s it!
  • For the “chopped” look, slice sirloin before serving. Have fun with your presentation!
