I am back on the grill tonight. I pulled out one of the Grill mate marinade packets tonight to use on a steak I bought this morning. And since I have been craving Mexican all week and no one was up for indulging me in that craving it was an easy choice. I pulled out the Mexican Fiesta marinade packet.
I am not a big steak eater and have only bought steak one other time. I was glad to see that Kroger had theirs labeled which type of cooking the steak would be good for.
I marinated the whole steak but only cooked half tonight and froze the rest in the marinade to pull out for another night. I also picked up a couple ears of corn to grill too.
While the steak was grilling I ate a salad and mixed up some Cilantro Lime butter to put on the corn.
I took two spoonfuls of butter, dash of lime juice, and two dashes of dried cilantro leaves. And it turned out really well. I was inspired by a page I pulled out of a Better Home and Garden magazine in 2007.
The steak turned out great. And I got to use my steak knives for the first time (I got the set 2 years ago at Christmas). I wasn't kidding when I said that I don't cook steak very often.
I cut off a small piece of the steak to eat tonight. I am going to use the rest for tacos tomorrow night.
I made a more diet friendly dessert for this week Blackberry Fusion Jello.
Now off to watch the season finale of Next Foodnetwork Star. Go Artie!!!!! And I will get in a workout too.
Have a great week everyone!!!
