A la Plancha

Cooking "a la plancha" is virtually smoke-free, energy efficient and sears like a dream—it’s not hard to see why this technique has become so popular lately. Many ingredients benefit from a little time on these traditional Spanish flattops, from tender green beans to hearty beef tenderloin.
