A year ago my mom went to Europe for three weeks and I asked her to bring me a bottle of wine from Paris.
Michael and I had been saving that bottle for “a special occasion” but last night we decided it was time to make a special occasion happen!
I uncorked the wine while we fixed dinner. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve done our “Sunday Steak Night” and last night we tried a different approach: Marinading.
Why didn’t we discover this method sooner? It makes all the difference.
Awesome Steak Marinade
1/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce
T Tablespoon Soy Sauce
Marjoram (Or Thyme)
Marinade for 4 hours or overnight in the fridge.
If you’ve never used a food scale, I really recommend getting one. You don’t need to buy a fancy, expensive digital scale–the $10 scales works just as well.
I checked out the weight of the sweet potatoes so I could calculate the calories correctly. 200 grams = 180 calories.
I baked the sweet potatoes in the oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes. Sprinkle some olive oil on the potato skin to keep it soft and tasty.
I steamed some peas while Michael grilled the steak outside. Everything turned out perfectly!
The marinade made the steak so tender; it melted in my mouth. It was probably the best steak we’ve done to date. Marinading is our new favorite thing!
You know you made a great dinner when you’re sad the food is gone.
QUESTION: What is your favorite marinade?
