Steak & Potato Dinner

Dinner tonight: Steak, Potatoes and Tomato/Avocado Salad
Tomato/Avocado Salad in a cilantro lime Dressing: Adapted from a Paula Deen recipe. I just omitted the corn and used shallots instead of red onions. So good! You could chop the tomato and avocado into small pieces, it would make an awesome dip for tortilla chips!

Oven roasted Red potatoes: Deric's favorite! I just used trial and error to find a temp and method that I liked for the potatoes.
Oven Roasted Red Potatoes:
-Preheat oven to 425F
-4-5 small/medium redpotatoes, cut into wedges
-olive oil
-sea salt
Drizzle potatoes with olive oil. Toss to coat. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Arrange on a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 min. Flip potatoes to other side and bake until cooked through or crispy to your liking.
Then eat with alot of ketchup! :)

Grilled Sirloin Steak:
I have yet to make a perfect steak... but it won't stop me from trying! This is as close as i've made it...
I marinated the steak (courtesy of Deric's parents' ranch) in McCormicks' Mojito Lime Marinade. Then I grilled it, 6 min on each side. Let it rest, and it was a good medium steak... not perfect, but good.

Tonight, we ate like kings!

  1. Lyg, that looks pretty perfect to me, my mouth is watering and my stomach growling.

  2. Looks really good. Too bad Andrew won't eat avocados or tomatoes. Guess I would have to eat the salad all by myself ;)

  3. ok seriously, you're lucky we don't live in the same city, because i'd have to make you into my personal chef. can't wait to try the salad - looks delish!! :)
