This is kind of part 2 of Episode Cilantro Pesto Pasta. In the first half I explained how I was basically kicked out of my kitchen and told to go sit down and let a man handle dinner. If you haven’t read that post yet you need to so you can get caught up……go ahead I will wait…..*insert Jeopardy music here*……oh good, you are back, now on with the show!
Kevin can’t really take all of the credit for this steak. I mean I did marinate it so that counts for something, right? In all actuality this recipe isn’t hard for anyone and I love those kinds of recipes. That’s why I do them!! This would be a wonderful weekday dinner with just some white rice if you’d like. Throw a little lime zest and cilantro in the rice to add a bit of flavor, and I have taken to making my rice with chicken stock instead of water most of the time, but you could use beef stock if you wanted a deeper flavor to the rice. Oh wait, this post was about the meat not the rice Bobbi. Sorry about that, I do tend to get carried away from time to time. That was just a glimpse into what happens in my head when I start thinking about food, it’s a crazy place I tell ya!
This recipe is based on one that I saw on Saveor.com. I remember it called for a sauce called maggi I believe. Since I knew I would never find anything like that in my little town, I passed it up and went on with my day. A few weeks later I happened to read something on a food website, imagine that, me on a food website! Seriously though, is there anything else worth looking at on the internet? Don’t answer that question, I know, I am a smart ass as my father so loved to point out. Annnnyway, I found a website that was giving substitutes for hard to find seasonings. What pops up? Tada maggi seasoning sauce. Yesssss, happy dance, err I mean yay that’s awesome! It turns out that you can just sub equal parts of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Who knew it was that easy? And why in the heck didn’t I just look that up in the first place?
But seriously, if you want a meal with no hassle this is your meal! You can marinate the meat for as little as 30 minutes, get your side dish going, fire up the grill or grill pan, and wala dinner is served!
