Allison promised me that she would be home for dinner one night this week so I could experiment on her. Well tonight’s the night! Being in a fancy mood, I decided to go with a skillet steak. I never usually buy meat from the store, but I gave in this week and tried my best to pick out a decent cut. Fail. Oh well.
Basically, this morning I used my new favorite meat seasoning from a little spice shop up in Wisconsin (thanks Allison) and gave these steaks a good rub and put them back in the fridge. I sautèd some onions in olive oil, then added the steaks, cooking for about 7 min a side. I then brushed on a last minute sauce consisting of:
As for amounts I’d estimate 9 parts ketchup : 3 parts brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup : 1 part mustard. Ish. After then first 7 min of steak cooking wonderfulness I added the sauce.
Meanwhile, Allison was kind enough to chop up some veggies. Green beans, 1 yellow pepper, 1 orange pepper, red potatoes, and some onion. I heated up some olive oil, seasoned it with garlic powder, seasoned salt, and pepper then added the veggies. Those cooked for about 15 min. Once the steaks were fully cooked, I added the rest of the sauce to the skillet and just left them on low till the veggies were done. This was the end result.
Allison decided that the veggies were great (of course) but the steaks were a little dry. Sadly enough I agreed with her. Next time I’m going to go with a thicker steak, not be so cheap, and actually get a really good cut of meat.
Boots also approved of the veggies as she “stole” a pepper off my plate and cleaned up the potato slice that Allison dropped. What Boots doesn’t know is that as soon as I’m done posting this, she is getting a bath. Which in her mind is just as bad as dressing up in this:
