Now that I have officially became a foodie, I decided to start making my own “What I Ate Wednesday” posts that Lindsay does on her blog COTTER CRUNCH. I also have a love for the show Come Dine With Me. I have had quite a few conversations with my friends on how we should start our very own version of the show. Call me modest but I think I have a good chance at scoring some tens. If you have absolutely no idea what I am talking about, you can watch all of the episodes online HERE. Consider this your warning– it will be your newest obsession!
Today’s delicious meal is steak, sweet potato fries, with pan-roasted carrots. Nom, nom, nom!
That delicious steak was marinated in Montreal steak rub and then I cooked it’s AAA grade self on the BBQ. It’s not much of a secret because this steak rub actually came from a little company called “Club House.” If I ever discover how to make a mean steak marinade- you know I will fill you in! Or if you have a recipe- pleeeeease fill me in!
You may have noticed that I like my steaks medium-well done. Don’t worry, EVERYONE makes fun of me for this. So obviously, you can too. I can’t help it. I don’t like blood coming out of my food when I am eating it. It grosses me out. And to be fair- my steak was still very juicy and tender in the middle. To me it was perfectly delicious. I’m ready to be criticized, I can take it.
For my yummy carrots I had some help from Gordon Ramsay:
Pan-Roasted Carrots Recipe:
•2 Sprigs of rosemary
•Small handful of thyme sprigs
•1 Garlic clove
•500g medium sized carrots, peeled and trimmed (1 lb) (I used freshly frozen round carrots)
•2 tbsp olive oil
•Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
•Knob of Butter (I use Olive Oil Margarine)
Have a Happy Wednesday Friends!
