Surf & Turf over Puréed Kohlrabi & Roasted Carrots
Surf N Turf1 lb Shrimp (or 1/3 lb per guest)
3 Whole Kohlrabi
Zesty Dill Italian Shrimp Marinade:
Bring a pot of water to boiling; add halved Kohlrabi. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Back to the Kohlrabi...
Loosely chop the garlic clove. Heat a sauté pan over medium heat and add ¼ Cup drippings with 1 clove of garlic, chopped. Flash sauté for just a minute and pull off heat (don’t let the garlic get too brown.)
In a food processor, add the garlic drippings, 1 Tbsp Half/Half (or cream) and 2 Tbsp of Kohlrabi water. Process until smooth. Add a little salt and pepper and give it one last spin.

For a good medium rare steak, grill the steaks for 9 minutes total (for about 1 ½ inch steak); flip every 4 minutes approximately. Turn 90 degrees every 2 minutes for some good grill marks! Note- cook times vary with method of grilling, heat regulation and the cut of meat so it takes some practice to get *perfect* and even then, there’s always that one that gets a little overdone, it seems. I've found that the 9 minute mark is a pretty safe guide, in general.

A beautiful plate to serve - anytime!
