So, I thought for a while that I would make this blog have a section on food that I’ve cooked and the recipes that I used.
Which is an awesome idea.
Until I realized that for the most part I don’t use recipes. this could be a challenge.
Take for example the dinner from tonight.
I just grabbed a few of the things that we had in the house and whipped this up.
Steamed broccoli, italian herbed potato wedges (they were from a bag), and then the steak and sauce.
sauce was started by cutting up some fresh crimini and a red capsicum (bell pepper for my States readers). These were tossed into the frying pan with a bit of butter, some black pepper, ground cumin, minced garlic, and italian herbs. I sauteed this up until just about done. Then transferred it to a bowl to rest.
At this point, I took our two steaks and put them right into the hot pan. while they seared on one side, i spiced the other with pepper, cumin, and then some brown mustard from the squeeze bottle. flip the steaks.
Meanwhile I took our sauteed veggies and added to them a can of mushrooms in pepper sauce. Which looked like a cream of mushroom soup, but with pepper. I stirred them together and then added in some more mustard and then some worcestershire sauce. Stir and tasted, delicious.
Since E and I both like steak that’s not well done, I wasn’t worried about killing the steak. So I pulled it out of the pan with about 10 minutes of time left. Placing the mushroom sauce into the pan to heat it up. That took about 5 minutes (at this point, I turned the broccoli on to start to steam).
with the last 5 minutes, i put the steak back in the frying pan and covered it with the mushroom and capsicum sauce.
And the end results? Delicious, to say the least. E finished his plate. Almost too quickly I think.
I doubt I could repeat the success, but it certainly tastes good tonight.
