I made the most delicious steaks the other night! It helps that I used Crooked Creek Beef, but I also tried a new marinade. And it was very delicious!!! I can't wait to use this marinade again.
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 tablespoon pepper
- 1 tablespoon ground ginger
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 8 ounces Apple Juice
- 1 or 2 beef top sirloin steak (about 3 pounds and around 1- 2 inches thick)
- Mix all the ingredients in a large ziplock bag. It'll smell like a Japanese Hibachi grill. And you're mouth will start watering!
- Add the meat. Sirloin is a tougher meat and requires a lot longer marinating then an hour before grilling. I let this marinate 6 hours, but you can do 24 hours.
- Grill to your liking. (I prefer medium rare.)
The meat was tender, delicious, it did not have a strong flavor of the marinade. If you have smaller steaks, you can half the marinade ingredients.
We served this with a steam bag of broccoli and cheese and the Omaha Steak Au Gratin potatoes. Since they were the last of what we had, I started looking for a copy cat recipe. I found one, and plan to try it out at some point. I think instead of rolling in just Parmesan, I will add some bread crumbs.
- 8 large baking potatoes
- 1/3 cup dried onion
- 8 ounces cream cheese -- may use low fat
- 8 ounces sour cream -- may use low fat
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt -- to taste
- fresh ground black pepper -- to taste
- Parmesan cheese -- for coating balls
- Bake potatoes, either in oven or microwave, Cool, peel and shred. (I use shredder on my Salad shooter) In a large bowl combine dried onion, sour cream, cream cheese, butter and seasonings. Mix in shredded potatoes until well combined.
- Take an ice cream scoop and dip out mixture and roll into a ball. Roll the potato ball in Parmesan cheese until well coated and place on a cookie sheet. Continue making balls until all mixture is gone. Cover and freeze. Once frozen the balls can be placed in plastic bags or containers and stored in freezer.
- To use, remove as many as needed and place on a cookie sheet. Bake in 350°F. oven for 15 to 20 minutes until lightly browned.
The recipe says it makes 8, but I think with the large potatoes and ingredients, you can get 16 decent sized balls, having 2 per serving. They might be more manageable too. I'll update once I make them! Might be a week or two.
