Hi Friends, sorry for the sudden lack of posting on the blog for over a month now. Had a lot of things going on, and was in the midst of taking care of them. I do have managed during this time, to try some new dishes. Its just that it took a while for me to put it all together.
I am working on new creations as well, still in the experimentation stage that I hope to share as soon as I can, if they turn out well ;-).
In the meanwhile here is a recipe sent to me by my friend Andy. He has been all over me for the last month or so to post this on the blog, else he would be mad!! He was my broker when we purchased our house. I have known him for the last 4 years now. Andy is an avid fan of eating and cooking food. His dish is Grilled Cowboy cut New York strip steaks.
I haven't tried out his recipe as I don't consume beef anymore. I am sure that although health wise its heart attack material (just kidding :-)), taste wise it has the ingredients in it to be a possible winner. Here is the recipe.
2 New York Strips - approximately 3 fingers thick (about 1.5 lbs each)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp Teriyaki sauce
Mix the salt, pepper, and garlic powder together and sprinkle them on each of the strips, on both sides. Let the steaks sit for a while and marinate. Line up the steaks and pour on each steak 1/2 tbsp each of olive oil, soy sauce, and Teriyaki sauce and let them soak in the ingredients a bit.
Grill the steaks for about 8 minutes per side over a hot grill. When you take the steaks off the grill, allow a few moments to rest before slicing.
Andy's note: "The texture and flavor of this meal is one to inspire the soul and should not be eaten too often lest it becomes taken for granted. Serve the above with an excellent salad and garlic bread. Spaghetti also makes a heavenly match with either a nice marinara or clam sauce".
Health Rating: Low (sorry, Andy :-))
Andy was born in Westchester NY and lived there all his life. Bottom line, he loves to eat and cook! Often when he eats out, he finds a dish that he likes so much, he comes back home and tries to create his own version of it. Andy is a real estate broker by profession, and here is his website http://www.andrewsilfen.com
