I’m going to let you in on a little secret. I cook 99% of all the dinners in this house. But there’s one meat that I’m literally not allowed to make according to family rules… and that’s steak. Why you ask? Because apparently I don’t have the magic touch! Not like my husband. Well, excuse me!!
Actually, if I’m being honest… I’m not complaining. It’s a day off!! What wife is going to sulk about THAT? PL-EASE. Let’s have steak three times a week! LOL
A few days ago, Bill got the itch to make his FAMOUS dish and I decided to film the process. We went to Whole Foods to pick up some much needed items and then he went to work.
- 1/4 balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons minced ginger
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1/4 cup chopped onions
- 4 minced garlic cloves
Please note — you do not need to add any salt to this recipe because the soy sauce is VERY salty!! Let your meat sit in the mixture for as long as you can. Bill prefers overnight but honestly – sometimes we just don’t have time for all of that.
I made a quick stir fry as a side dish. Not really part of the marinade recipe… but I wanted to prove that I participated in a little way in the meal. LOL!
Onto the cooking!! He pan fries the steak first to brown it on medium high heat. Once he has a color that he likes, my husband finishes it off in the oven under the broiler for a few minutes. It depends on how you like your meat cooked. We are a mixed house. I like my meat well and he likes his meat medium. So, it’s a big GAME when he cooks steak.
A little cous-cous as the starchy side to add to my veggie mix and we had a fantastic dinner. Before serving, Bill also likes to sprinkle some herbs over the meat for decoration and taste.
Yum and Yum!
