Beef tenderloins, rubbed with steak spice, grilled hard and rested well. Served with veggies and wasabi ginger sauce and baked potatoes and fresh bacon bits. Check out the cook on the steak, proud of that.
Chicken, bacon and baby Bella mushroom Ragu. I use the term loosely because a Ragu is very specific. Cook bacon, boneless skinless chicken thighs, add a splash of balsamic and salt and pepper. Then add baby Bella mushrooms, diced tomatoes, bell peppers, oregano and basil and cook down. I felt like rice so that’s what I served it over. Could have used a bit more salt but it used a lot of things in the fridge up.
Souvlaki marinated pork chops and balsamic asparagus with bacon. Grill the chops on a grill pan, and start cooking the diced bacon. Add some balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper with the asparagus. Be careful to cook the pork all the way through, but not overcook to make sure it’s still moist.
Chicken mushroom Korma. Cook down onion, fresh garlic and ginger. Add chopped cilantro and a large green chili pepper. Then add chopped boneless skinless chicken thighs, chick peas, coconut milk and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper and serve over rice.
Steak fajita salad. To make the salsa grill red onion, bell pepper and garlic. Put in the food processor with two large tomatoes, fresh cilantro, olive oil, salt and pepper. Season the steak with salt and pepper and grill. Slice the steak and serve over greens, with fresh bell pepper, cheddar cheese and the salsa.
Beef tenderloin steaks rubbed with steak spice, and grilled. Grilled green pepper and zucchini, seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper. Baked potatoes on the side.
Roast beef dinner night! Roast cooked in fresh garlic, onion, lots of rosemary, top rubbed with steak spice. Into the oven covered for 5 hours at 300F. Served with mashed potatoes, gravy and steamed veggies. Great simple weekend meal.
Mozzarella stuffed beef and pork mushroom burgers. Combine one pound ground beef with a half a pound of ground pork. Season with salt, pepper, liquid smoke, wortchestire sauce and old English mustard. I used my burger press to stuff the patties with shredded mozzarella. Sautéed some mushrooms with olive oil, salt, pepper and steak spice. Cook the burgers all the way through and serve how you like them. A great summer meal.
Turkey, mushroom and vegetable teriyaki stir fry over rice. Fry an onion and 7 cloves of fresh garlic in peanut oil and soy sauce. Add diced turkey breast with salt and pepper, then the bell peppers and mushrooms. Add the carrot, snow peas, broccoli and teriyaki sauce and cook through leaving the veggies a little crisp. Serve over rice.
So I found a new steak rub, smoke eater, it’s ridiculously good. Today it was torrential rain, so much that my grill was going to fill with water so I resorted to the grill pan for the strip loin steaks, then finished them in the oven. For the zucchini, asparagus and mini bell peppers it’s simply olive oil, salt and pepper then roasted on parchment paper.
Speaking of olive oil, salt and pepper you should check out one of my favourite tumblr pages, they make some amazing things:
