garlic rosemary steak

Happy new year everyone! Thank you for following me on my food adventures. It has been hard finding time to cook these days but it is one of my resolutions to try and find more time to cook, try new recipes, and host more gatherings. For my first post in 2015, I wanted to try a new steak recipe. I usually just season my steak with olive oil, salt & pepper but I wanted to try something different this time. I saw this recipe on Bon Appetit for garlic-rosemary steak and gave it try. This would be perfect for anyone who likes rosemary and garlic- lots of strong flavors here. I think I want try making herb butter next time. Let me know if you have any suggestions! 🙂 Recipe for garlic-rosemary steak courtesy of: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/garlic-rosemary-steak Ingredients: 3/4 cup plus 7 Tbsp. olive oil, divided 1/4 cup 1-inch pieces rosemary sprigs 1 1/2 pounds hanger or flank steaks, cut into four 6-ounce steaks Kosher salt, freshly ground pepper 6 large garlic cloves, sliced Coarse sea …

tonight’s dinner: steak & soba stir fry

I love steak. I can eat it anytime, anywhere. Tonight, I ate it at home and in a stir fry and it was GOOD. I’ve made something similar before {https://delishthoughts.com/2014/01/31/my-friday-night-dinner/} but this time, I tried a new recipe from Bon Appetit. I didn’t use almonds & carrots because honestly, I had all the other ingredients at home & didn’t want to go to the market. I was lazy & hungry! 😛 The sauce was so flavorful. And I just realized that I don’t think I ever had steak with noodles but I mean, steak tastes good with anything! 🙂 Recipe for Steak & Soba Stir Fry courtesy of: http://www.bonappetit.com/recipe/steak-and-soba-stir-fry Ingredients: 2 tablespoons sliced almonds 8 ounces soba (Japanese-style noodles) or spaghettini Kosher salt 1 tablespoon plus 3 tablespoons vegetable oil t 12 ounces skirt or flank steak Freshly ground black pepper 2 scallions, whites and greens separated, chopped 4 medium garlic cloves, chopped 1 tablespoon grated peeled ginger 2 heads baby bok choy, quartered t 1 medium carrot, peeled, thinly sliced on a diagonal 3 …

my Friday night dinner

I’m not going to lie.. I just made an awesome dinner for myself. It’s been a while since I’ve been home on a Friday night so all I want to do is eat a delicious meal and watch TV on the couch all night 🙂 I was craving steak earlier today so I went to the market after work and picked up a New York strip steak. I decided to make myself a little rice bowl with steak, bok choy and shiitake mushrooms. Just cook your steak how you like (I season with salt & pepper, sear it in a pan and finish in the oven) and slice into strips. The mushrooms were sauteed with olive oil and the bok choy was steamed and then sauteed with oyster sauce. Below is a good recipe for bok choy with oyster sauce. I did my own version with oyster sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and minced garlic. After everything is cooked, assemble the ingredients on top of rice and top with more oyster sauce. SO GOOD! It’s …

simple dinner for one: steak with chimichurri sauce

One of the best things served at La La’s Grill is the chimichurri sauce. I could eat bowls & bowls of that delicious sauce with bread. I have been wanting to try making the sauce at home and decided to cook myself a simple dinner: steak with chimichurri sauce. I like to season my steak with some olive oil, salt & pepper. Then I sear each side in an oven proof pan with melted butter and stick in the oven to finish cooking for about 7 min in 350 degrees. I’ve seen on cooking shows that you are supposed to cover meat with foil & let the meat rest but I was too hungry and couldn’t wait. I sliced that steak right away and topped it with this yummy chimichurri sauce. This meal is perfect for one– you can also make any side dish to go with it– a salad, roasted potatoes or veggies. I was pretty content with just the meat & sauce 🙂 recipe courtesy of: http://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/chimichurri/ Ingredients •1 cup firmly packed fresh …
