carpetbag steak....

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

can anyone shed some light on a 'carpet bag' steak? i know there is a pocket into which oysters are sewn into, that's about it. is this a retro dish?  what type of meat is used and what type of sauce is served with it? or is there? everything goes better with sauce in my book though..... cooking instructions anyone? it sounds so cool and i just love the name!  i thought there was/is an oyster dish called carpetbaggers as well...anyone else remember? thanks

Hi'
 

Found this recipe, I was looking for one with the same dressing I remember tasting a couple of years ago when a friend of mine tried it. I only remember the dressing because the steak itself didn't turn out that great for my friend (a bit overcooked for my taste).

Served them a long time ago.  We fried the oysters first and then stuffed the steak.  Interesting to read that it's an Australian dish and done with raw oysters.  I had always  thought it was from New Orleans.

thanks all...chef petals has sent me a very decadent and divine sounding recipe.... oysters are sauteed with mushrooms, brandy, peppercorns and breadcrumbs...the fun surprise ingredient is garam masala....a butterflied filet is filled with the oyster mixture, tied, seared in butter, then roasted......this dish just sounds so over the top rich and wonderful that i wonder why it fell out of favor or why no one has brought it back....maybe it's time, no?

zojison, the miso marinade in your recipe is quite interesting...not sure about the shredded pastry bits though....is that phyllo? for this special meal i want it as indecently decadent as i can get it.....

kuan, do you remember what type of steak you used?
