Did you all read yesterday's post???
It is pretty exciting around here today, as my garden is actually being built. But for now, I am a pot gardener (not that kind, a gardener who's plants are on pots)...
Like my Rosemary! Got to tell you, if you are looking for something aromatic, you just can not beat the smell of fresh (and growing rosemary.
This is a pretty straight forward recipe. When grilling steaks, you can make it very complicated, or you can let the meat sing on it's own...
Meaning, brush a tsp of olive oil on the steak prior to grilling. Salt and pepper pretty heavy prior to grilling. Get the grill HOT. You want to sear the meat to trap in the juices... 2 minutes, then turn diagonally (so you get those pretty diamond grill marks (a sign of a true master)). Turn and do the same on the other side.
While that was happening, I melted a stick of butter in a sauce pan. Tossed in a couple of sprigs of fresh rosemary from my garden (OK... pot). Just the brief time the herbs are in the butter is enough to add a strong flavor.
Brush the butter on the steak...
I like my steak rare to medium rare. My wife sadly prefers her medium well (sigh). I admire the folks who can tell doneness from monitoring the give of the steak. Me, I decided a while ago that a temperature prob is the griller's best friend.
140 degrees for me
160 for Jackie
I grilled up some Sweet potato slices (again, just brush with oil, a little seasoning... and since it was so handy, I brushed with some of the rosemary butter). Added a fresh Caprice Salad (Mozzarella, tomato slices with a little fresh basil (also from my garden (OK... POTS, but the garden is coming)
The HOT weather broke, and it was a fine night to sit on our deck, and enjoy the fruits (herbs) of my labor!
It's a very simple meal, but filled with flavor. I just loved the rosemary butter on the steak and sweet potatoes. Added a new and unexpected taste to a favorite dish I have made a hundred times.
