One of her secrets to making great meat dishes is using her garlic infused olive oil. She makes this herself, and it adds just little extra flavor for chicken and steak dishes. The process of making your own infused oils is pretty simple!
Step 1: Grow garlic in your garden, dry, and braid to hang in your kitchen. Don't happen to have kind of time? Buy garlic bulbs from the supermarket instead....
Step 2: Assemble your ingredients. You will need:
- 4-5 Garlic Bulbs
- Black Pepper
- Sea Salt
- Olive Oil
- Glass baking dishes, a cutting board, and a sharp knife
Step 6: Put the baking dishes into the oven, set at 350°F, for 30 minutes. About 15 minutes in, spoon some of the oil in the dish on top of the garlic to keep the garlic moist.
Step 7: After 30 minutes of baking, take the garlic out of the oven, lay the thyme branches on top of the garlic, and add more salt, pepper and oil. Cover the dishes with aluminum foil to keep the moisture in.
Step 8: Bake for another 20 minutes.
