New Foods and the Second Steak!

Two weeks ago I wrote about discovering Rancher's Home steaks and how great the one I had was. At less than $5 a pound it was a great deal in more than just taste! I had grilled it in my George Foreman grill and it melted in my mouth, s-o-o-o-o-o-o-o good. I knew I would have to try it again. Last week I bought one home and tried the ultimate taste--putting it in the microwave oven. I have a 'grilling pan' to use in the microwave and decided to make the steak that way. I chopped up some garlic and put it on both sides of the steak, put it into the microwave, cooked it 2 minutes on each side and when it was finished it didn't look like a grilled steak but I wasn't expecting it to. I will say it tasted even better than the first one. I knew this was going to be my once a week treat. I couldn't wait to get one this week and when I went to the beef section in Winn-Dixie I got my rude awakening! The previous two weeks the steak had been on sale and now they were $9+ a pound!! Oh well, maybe 1 every 2 months!! By the way the 'side dish' on the plate by the steak is a mixture of red beans, rice and spices, a basic Jambalaya staple. Every month I try new items that I get at the Pantry and as tempted as I was to spread some of the duck rillettes but it is definitely a no-no on my do not eat list. They also have 2-3 new marinades every month and though I am very limited on using marinades I always sneak a tablespoon or two into the crock pot when I am cooking chicken. Using one tablespoon of YO MAMA Honey Balsamic marinade over 8 chicken breasts really doesn't go very far regarding taste but every now and then I will get a bite with a 'bang' that makes the other plain bites edible! In all the years of tasting new foods the only one I can remember saying that I would never have again was oyster plant--and I haven't!

Oy! Microwave and steak in the same paragraph is more than my stomach can stand. You killed my appetite for breakfast, which is actually Ok.

Just for the record--the steak is juicer when done in the microwave for 2 minutes on each side! Okay, so it doesn't have the 'browness' but don't knock something until you try it!

Sounds like it was fun while it lasted.
