Steak: It's What's For Dinner



In the summertime, we eat a lot of steak in this household. For one thing, it's free. What!? Free steak? Yep. My grandparents raise beef cattle in their pasture. We can it, freeze it, and whenever I'm running low I bring a little cooler along on my visits to my hometown and stock up. For another thing, I LOVE steak cooked on the grill. I know that I've described my carnivorous tendencies on this blog before. Tonight's selection was a rather large T-bone steak. I like to rub it with a combination of Herb ox instant beef bouillon, seasoning salt, and Montreal Spicy steak seasoning. Tonight I went the extra mile and sauteed a skillet of onions and mushrooms in a little olive oil. I really enjoy sauteed onions and mushrooms with my steak, don't you? We enjoyed garden fresh lettuce and tomatoes and some chunks of Italian bread (leftover from the gazpacho)drizzled with a balsamic dipping oil with our steak. And that's dinner. Hope yours was delicious too!

When I was a young mother, and money was tight, I used to go over to my moms and she would encourage me to raid the basement freezer. I was extremely grateful, but I can guarantee you I didn't find steak!! How lucky you are!!!!!!!!

My husband would like to come over and eat at your house! He loves steak and I don't make it as often as he would like.

Oh my goodness, Krista...your steak looks so good! I'm especially jealous of the mushrooms and onions smothered on top--my parents used to serve steak that way when we were growing up, but my husband refuses to eat mushrooms, so I seldom indulge myself. I'm thinking about reevaluating that, though, and buying an entire package of mushrooms for myself. Yep, that's going on my grocery list right now ;)
