Beefy Heirloom Tomatoes

It's prime time for heirloom tomatoes, and you find a variety of colors and shapes at the local markets. I love them. They're so unusually shaped and incredibly colorful. Oh, they taste good too.

This particular heirloom tomato I got recently reminded me of meat when I cut into it. The flesh reminded me so much of raw meat. And with a good heirloom tomato, all I do is dress it with good extra virgin olive oil and sprinkle with fleur de sel. If I get fancy I might rip some fresh basil leaves and shave some parmesan cheese.

All this tomato needed was olive oil and salt. It tasted so meaty, the flesh tender but firm. Don't you think it looks like a sirloin cut or pork chop? So slice up an heirloom tomato, and serve it up medium rare. Yum.
