Steak it is for dinner

Molineux(6b)September 11, 2008

I recently read an old thread and dug out this recipe. Thought you might enjoy it.


You will need:

Two large New York strip steaks (the bigger the better)

Fresh cilantro

3 Limes

McIlhenney Chipotle Pepper Tabasco sauce

Salt and Pepper

1 stick of kerrygold Irish butter

Blue corn chips

Greek salsa (equal parts chopped grape tomatos, kalamata olives, and red onion; mixed with a little fresh oregano)

Sour cream


Your favorite bottled beer, ice cold

Fire up a charcoal or smoked wood grill (don't even think about doing this with gas). Finely mill (chop up) the cilantro. Unwrap the steaks and massage the meat with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and some of the cilantro. In a heat proof glass measuring cup melt the Irish butter in the microwave (about 1-2 minutes on high; keep an eye on it). To the melted butter add the rest of the cilantro, several drops of the chipotle sauce and the juice of two limes. Stir until blended. Take the steaks out to the grill and slap them on. Cook on each side 5-7 minutes. While cooking brush the steaks with the butter/herb/pepper/lime mixture. Remove steaks to plate and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve with lime wedges and blue corn chips on the side topped by sour cream, salsa, and guac. Don't forget the ice cold beer to quench that fire in your mouth.

I've been missing the "what's for dinner" posts - that sounds excellent.

Nothing that good for me tonight - I'm getting ready for a yard sale on Sunday and need all my spare time.

I remember this menu Chef Hanrahan. Amazing what a mind does recall.

Wow, does that ever sound good...anything tex-mex, hispanic, anywhere/anytime and I'm first in line with my fork :)

Sadly, not tonight, we're probably having a quick sandwich from the chicken I roasted...16 yr old nephews first varsity home football game where he's starting. My neighbor asked last night if I liked high school football - my answer was, I like Jeff ;)

Thanks for yet another lovely photograph. Yes I do miss her dearly. I've already decided next year to order two more from Lisa. RRD be damned. She is just too beautiful to live without. The shrubs are doing fine. Same demure feminine flowers, same sweet fragrance, same good disease resistance and nearly smooth stems. Love it.

Patrick-----I sure hope she doesn't get RRD----I had too cut some off a ND bush----
I'm really not a photographer---Just a PHS (push here stupid) but I do love the second picture.

Thanks again and we will both pray not to get RRD for your new ones and the one you sent me-

How is Lisa doing with all the hurricanes in her area.
