So, last weekend (the one before last week, not this most recent one) we decided to try out a new rub recipe on a steak. Not just any steak, but a HUGE london broil we had in the freezer. More roast than steak!
I started by brining the steak in a mixture of white vinegar, water, garlic, and salt overnight. Then I put the rub on a few hours before I was ready to grill. The rub was from the new barbecue book I've got (the title escapes me at the moment) and was basically paprika, garlic, salt and pepper. Very simple, very flavorful.
So that night we had steak and potatoes and all was yummy.
The next night was Monday and dinner is not really a priority on Mondays. Usually catch as catch can. So I pulled out some wheat wraps that were in the fridge, and we layered on steak and lettuce and tomatoes and caramelized onions and feta. OMG it was SO good. Hard to believe it was leftovers!
Later that week I took pizza shells from Hannaford (very low fat, very yummy) and rubbed extra virgin olive oil on them, sprinkled with garlic, then spread low fat mozarella, the steak (thinly sliced) and feta cheese. Once again, OMG.
And there was still steak left.
The final meal was a quick and simple one. A bagel, spread with roasted garlic & herb hummus, then topped with thinly sliced steak and made into a sandwich. No work at all, and absolutely yummy.
Four dinners. One HUGE steak, brined, rubbed, and grilled. Whee!Posted by Deb Atwood at August 12, 2003 11:12 PM | TrackBack
