Top 10: Twists on Iced Tea

Grilled Beef Tenderloin Steaks with Asian Glaze

Ok, so while we aren’t fancy around here (Lisa has mastered going to the grocery store in her “daytime” pyjamas), we’re suckers for a prime cut of meat. Enter the beef tenderloin, also know by its’ super intimidating names ‘filet mignon’ and ‘chateaubriand,’ a cut so tender and delicious, it’s buttery. Sliced into steaks, the tenderloins are seasoned simply with salt and pepper, basted with a savory ginger hoisin glaze and grilled to juicy perfection. The result is a scrumptious meat feast ready in less than 15 minutes. More

Grilled Strip Steaks with Peppercorn Sauce

To someone who, at times, avoids the kitchen, the idea of skipping a steakhouse in favor of making steak at home sounds like lunacy, right? Not after I made this 5-star recipe. So simple yet elegant enough for entertaining, these juicy, tender strip loin steaks are smothered in a velvety peppercorn sauce. The subtle zip of green peppercorns combined with rich beef broth, zesty red currant jelly and the distinctive flavor of whiskey make this sauce alone worth staying home for...that, and eating scrumptious steak while wearing sweatpants.  More

Steakhouse Creamed Spinach

Among the mahogany walls and dirty martinis, something great is happening in swanky steak-houses across the nation...carnivores are eating spinach. A simple side dish that seems healthy next to fried hash browns and marbled rib-eyes, the overly creamy restaurant version is still too flaccid and watery for our taste. Using whipped cream cheese, our easy, silky smooth spinach brings home all the taste of the upscale steakhouse without the $15 side-dish robbery and the velvet banquettes. More

Hello summer, we MEAT again! Nothing better than enjoying our Flank Steak Fajitas under the warm sun with family and friends. If you don`t make it at your next barbecue, it`ll be be a huge MISTEAK!

Ingredients:

2 lb flank steak

Marinade
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp fresh lime juice
1 tbsp brown sugar
½ tsp ground cumin
½ tsp chili powder
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper

1 red bell pepper, sliced
1 yellow pepper, sliced
1 green pepper, sliced
1 medium yellow onion, halved and sliced

12-14 (6-inch) flour or corn tortillas

Garnish
1 ripe avocado, sliced
Salsa
Fresh flat-leaf Italian parsley, chopped

Directions:

1) Place the flank steak in a large sealable plastic bag. For the marinade, in a small bowl, whisk olive oil, soy sauce, lime juice, brown sugar, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper. Reserve 2 tablespoons of marinade and pour remaining marinade over flank steak, seal bag and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
2) While the flank steak marinates, combine sliced peppers and onions with remaining marinade. Refrigerate until ready to cook.
3) Let flank steak come to room temperature before cooking. When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil grill grates. Remove meat from marinade and place on grill. Grill 5-6 minutes, flip and cook 5 minutes more until cooked through. Transfer meat to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes.
4) Heat a large skillet over high heat and add pepper and onion mixture. Cook 5 minutes until peppers and onions are slightly charred. Remove from skillet and set aside.
5) When ready to assemble, thinly slice flank steak against the grain. Place steak down the center of each tortilla, top with pepper and onion mixture followed by sliced avocado, salsa and parsley. Roll tortilla and serve immediately.
