Steak and Potatoes!

One of our favorite meals includes a big thick sirloin steak marinated in one of a few combinations of flavors, then grilled and sliced thinly, served with a great sauce!    The men in my life think you can't have steak without potatoes ... and then there's the bread ... must have bread ... and we all love Caesar Salad and Roasted Broccoli!   Add a steaming cup of coffee and biscotti to dip and swirl, and we are happy folks!




This meal had a little Spanish flavor.  The marinade for the meat was 1/2 cup each of red wine, olive oil and water ... with a Tablespoon of fresh lime juice, a little garlic and fresh cilantro.   Mix it all together and let the steak soak in it for 4 hours at room temperature, turning it frequently.  Grill it your way!  I also made a sauce by reducing the marinade to about half and adding approximately a cup of chipotle BBQ sauce and a cup of beef stock ... and simmered mushrooms in it.


I made the au'gratin potatoes with cream and Chihuahua cheese and rolled the pull apart bread chunks in chopped fresh cilantro and chives.
