Well, today is my day off sort of. I like to sleep in since this is the only day I get to do that all week. I'm sure that was very informative but anyway, there you have it!!!!!
I was awakened by the phone...........a wrong number. Oh well may as well stay up now. Just puttering around in a coma though as I'm still really sleepy.
Time to rustle up some lunch....Oh nuts, fridge almost empty. Let's have a closer look, rummage around deeper. There must be something, I don't want to go downstairs to the freezer.
Let's see here.........aha, we have here about eight ounces of sirloin steak, three peppers...yellow,orange and red but they are only half each as I have used the other halves since for something else earlier this week. OK.....I have onions and garlic but what to do?
I could grill the steak and the veggies and serve them on top of the steak with a baked potato and another veggie.......Oh that's too ordinary besides it still requires a trip to the basement for veggies. Grill everything anyway and while they're cooking, maybe I'll get inspired. Boy I'm feeling really lazy today!!!!!!
Everything is finished cooking, I guess it's going to have to be what I said earlier except that I will cut the steak in half, I don't eat all that meat. My cat won't touch steak but there are some trimmings for her........what's that? the doorbell?
One of my friends drops in (why is it most people visit you at mealtimes?) I ask her if she had lunch, she said no and she didn't come to eat.......well, I know that but I'm hungry and it's not polite to eat in front of people without offering them. She is skinny as a toothpick anyway so I don't feel bad pressing her. I tell her she could use the weight and I keep offering her my extra!!!! Oh yes back to the food nuts and double chocolate covered nuts!!!!!!!
Well this is what I came up with, I hope you like it.
GRILLED STEAK AND ROASTED PEPPERS
eight ounces of grilling steak
three sweet peppers
one large onion
1 cup brown rice
Wash and dry the peppers (colours of your choice) cut them in half and take out the seeds and cut off all the stem, peel the onion and slice in four thick slices and peel the garlic as many as you like or none if you don't like it.
You should drizzle the peppers, onion and garlic with a tiny bit of olive oil when you place them on the grill.
Put the peppers on the grill to roast until they are a bit charred, remove from the grill and wrap in a clean teatowel and grill the steak for about seven to eight minutes, then add the onion slices and the whole garlic and grill until the steak is cooked to your liking and the garlic and onion are a bit soft. Peel the skin off the peppers (should be easy now) and slice in thin slices, slice the steak across the grain and toss the steak, peppers, onion, garlic and salad dressing together in a bowl.
Serve over hot brown rice. You can also serve with noodles, I love soba noodles or you can toss with salad greens.
This way I found that my eight ounces of steak made three servings or two servings if larger appetites.
Well, that's all for today. I hope you enjoy the recipe and I am going to continue the visit with my friend as I don't get to see her too often. Bye for now.
