Steak and Potatoes
Beef is always part of my weekly menu. However, I mainly make ground beef. Steak is rare in our home. It is fairly easy so as long as you take care to marinate over night. It is my conclusion through the years of cooking meat, that marinated meat tastes even better because the juices have had the chance to soak in.
Part of growing up, beef was never a part of my household. When I came to America, my first taste of beef was a burger. Maybe that is why I feel more comfortable cooking with ground beef, it is just so versatile! So anyway, this is my concoction of different spices that make a fantastic marinade on any steak of your choice!!!
Marinade for Steak
1/3rd cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 medium cloves of garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon of fresh or dried rosemary
Lime juice of one fresh lime
Salt & Pepper to Taste
I bought 4 Round eye steaks (they were tiny)
Mix all above ingredients together. Add Steak. Marinate over night.
Grill steak as to desired taste
8 medium to small Yukon gold potatoes
1 green bell pepper, cored & diced
1/2 white onion diced
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of paprika
Butter & Salt to taste
In a sauce pan full of boiling water, add the potatoes. Boil approximately 10-12 minutes, or until they are partially tender when a fork is inserted into them. Remove from water, drain and dice. In a skillet heat butter, add bell pepper and onions. Sautee veggie mix till they become soft and onions turn golden. Add diced potatoes, garlic powder, paprika and salt. Mix well. Cook the potatoes till they are a bit more tender (another 7 mins or so). Remove from heat and serve with grilled steak.
