Learn About Corporate Chef Santiago Lopez At Mia’s Italian Kitchen In Alexandria

Santiago Lopez makes the Sunday gravy which is the customer favorite at Mia’s Italian Kitchen on King Street. The first step is to make the braciola. Lopez said, “I’ll clean the flank steak up by removing some of the fat. But I’ll keep some to melt into the gravy and give it a nice flavor.”Lopez sticks the tip of a sharp knife into the side of the flank steak and carefully slices it through to create a flap of meat. “I pull this back so I can stuff the flank steak and roll it.”
Finished Sunday Gravy at Mia’s Italian Kitchen on King Street
According to the Alexandria Gazette, "Lopez rolls the meat tightly and winds butcher’s tape around the roll to secure the meat. “I salted the inside, now the outside. I’m gonna get the rest of the meats and sear everything.” Lopez pulls out a tray of 12 beef meatballs made with panko bread crumbs, eggs, ricotta, and fresh pepper. He sets a tray of 12 chicken thighs on the counter with a tray of 12 three-inch pieces of sweet Italian sausage and 12 hot Italian sausage meatballs. “Of course, this is a recipe that serves 12; each person gets a piece of each meat.” As per Alexandria Gazette, "Lopez started off to become an engineer. But while he was in school, he was working in a restaurant and he discovered he liked cooking better. And he had the added incentive of his grandparents’ bakery back in Colombia with those tiny special Spanish pound cakes his grandma made for him whenever he stayed with her. So after two semesters he quit engineering and went to culinary school. Now he is a Corporate Chef who oversees all of the 8 Mia’s restaurants. Lopez says his Sunday gravy is called Neapolitan gravy in Italy, and the combination of meats depends on who is making it; everyone has their own recipe. But he comments confidentially, his combination is the best."
