Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach can be clunky, rich with so much cream and butter the spinach itself is an afterthought. Start by reducing cream while infusing it with a subtle hit of onion. Separately, wilt the spinach, drain off the excess liquid, then add the reduced cream, season, and serve. For a classic steakhouse dinner, pair this creamed spinach with Roasted Herbed Beef Tenderloin, a Caesar Salad, and Dilled Potato Gratin.
