Lawry’s steakhouse Chicago is closing after 45 years. Yes, it is sad news, especially for those living in the area and having visited the restaurant in regular basis. However, do not worry about it because Lawry’s has shared their secrets so that you can make your own steak at home and still have the Lawry’s goodness in it. Here is the further information about it for you.
Roasted Prime Rib of Beef
The main component of Lawry’s steakhouse Chicago dinner plate is the roasted prime rib of beef. You only need three ingredients to make the beef: standing rib roast, seasoned salt and rock salt. The secret of cooking the beef is to spread rock salt on the roasting pan and then put a rack over it. Place a seasoned beef on top of the rack and then cook the beef until its internal temperature is exactly 140 degree Fahrenheit (for medium rare).
Spinning Bowl Salad
There are three traditional side dishes served with the beef. The first one is the spinning bowl salad. The components in the salad are: green mix (romaine, spinach and iceberg), cherry tomatoes, julienned beets, hard-boiled eggs, and croutons. They are all tossed together and vineggrete-based salad dressing is poured over the mix.
Yorkshire pudding is another side dish to serve with the beef. It is a classic English-originated dish that has travelled all over the world, including to Chicago. It is made by basically mixing flour, milk, eggs and salt together. The batter is then poured into lined muffin pan and baked in the oven at 375 for 40 minutes.
Of course you won’t have Lawry’s menu without its infamous creamed spinach. The dish is made by sautéing thawed frozen spinach with onion, garlic, seasoned salt, bacon, milk and heavy cream. Cooked them all until they are mixed together and the consistency becomes creamy. If you want the texture to be completely mushy, you can use hand blender to mash the mixture even more.
Now you see that even though Lawry’s is closed, you can make the full plate of steak dinner at home. Cook the steak with the right ingredients and right side dishes and you will have the exactly steak dinner like Lawry’s at the comfort of your own kitchen.
