High-quality black truffle salt provides a base of umami-rich flavor to this blend. The mellow, round mushroom-notes of the truffles are heightened with the taste of natural sea salt.

The black garlic brings in a slightly sweet but clearly savory note with its own unique tang. Black garlic is a traditional preparation important to many Asian cuisines, made by fermenting fresh garlic cloves. The enzymes active through the fermentation process tone down some of the garlic’s harsh or acrid notes and creates deep, some say almost bitter chocolate-like flavors that plays incredibly well with the layers of truffle and parmesan cheese. Black garlic is maybe best described as being deeply, thoroughly caramelized garlic.

The Parmesan cheese adds its own nutty, slightly salty flavor to the blend. It’s a key element in balancing the interplay of the savory truffle flavors with the almost sweet black garlic.

Recipes:


Truffle Parmesan & Black Garlic Crusted Steak

Ingredients:
2 Tenderloin or filet mignon, at least 1 ½ inches thick, 
    alternatively sirloin, NY strip or strip steak.
½ cup F+F Truffle Parmesan & Black Garlic seasoning blend
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. olive oil


Steak Prep:
1.	Place steak on a large cutting board, letting it come to 
	room temperature (about 20 minutes). This will help the 
	steak cook	more evenly. 
2.	Sprinkle all sides of the steak with F+F Truffle Parmesan 
	& Black Garlic seasoning blend making sure it is generously 
	coated.


Directions for Cooking:
1.	Place the cast iron skillet on a large burner on the stove and let it heat up before 
	adding the butter and olive oil. Once the skillet it hot, reduce the heat to medium, 
	add the butter and olive oil. Butter should melt immediately. 
2.	Place steaks in the middle of the pan, but not crowding each other. 
	Sear (do not flip them) for 4-5 minutes. Do not move during the searing time. 
	Don’t be tempted to lift to check.
3.	After 4-5 minutes, flip each steak and do not move for an additional 4-5 minutes.
4.	After 5 minutes, use tongs to sear each edge for 1-2 minutes. Make sure all the edges 
	are seared.
5.	Once you have seared the edges, check the internal temperature steak and continue 
	to cook on low until it reaches your desired temperature. Medium to medium-rare is an 
	internal temperature of about 145 degrees F. 
6.	Remove from pan to a platter when steaks have reached desired doneness and let 
	rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
