Steak & Potatoes for WH

21 01 2009


I found a recipe for potatoes on Karen’s blog, Loves To Eat (our January Tour Stop!) and had to make them.  While this is not one of the recipes Karen suggested, I knew WH would love them.  On Friday I will be posting my experiences with one of Karen’s favorite recipes for the Tour.  Consider this an extra treat from Love’s To Eat.


When I saw this recipe I immediately decided to make steak and green beans with them (a variation on this).  WH has been asking for “steak and taters” for a while and since he took me to The Eagles Concert!!!


I decided to say thank you with a delicious meal.  He enjoyed it too, saying: “I’d pay $20 for that at a restaurant”.  Why, thank you.

These potatoes are so yummy — we ate the entire dish!  The easiest recipe ever, just some garlic, butter, salt & pepper.  My cook times were a little different than the recipe and since I sprayed the dish with non-stick spray, it didn’t come together like I think was intended (you’re supposed to be able to invert onto a platter but we just ate out of the dish).  It was flipping good.


The steaks were seasoned with some Mrs. Dash grill seasoning and cooked on a grill pan.  I used some of Pioneer Woman’s suggestions for grilling steak, like putting butter on the grill pan.  Check out more of her tips.  Green beans were tossed with olive oil & grill seasoning and tossed on the grill pan as well.  This was one of those meals where I got every thing right.  It was really awesome and so so easy!
