Steak dinner for two.
I used to see steak as a gift. There were rare occasions that it came in to my life, and most of them were birthdays or celebrations. It wasn’t until recently that I realized that steak was accessable and could be eaten any day I wanted, and any time of the year I wanted. Don’t get me wrong, cooking a steak in your own kitchen and doing it correctly is an art form, but it is something everyone can learn to do.
The best part of the dinner is that it can be done for under $10 a person, a far cry from the $20 dishes in restaurants.
2 sirloin steaks
2 whole potatoes
1 package of pre-cut greenbeans
1⁄4 cup of butter
Olive oil or non-stick cooking spray
1. The steak: Put the oven on broil. Coat a glass pan in olive oil or non-stick cooking spray. Rub each sirloin with salt and pepper and place in the pan.
Cook for seven minutes on each side, or until the meat is cooked to your liking. Well-done meat will take longer.
2. The potatoes: Coat each potato in olive oil. Using a fork, puncture the potatoes several times. Put in the microwave on high for six minutes. Then carefully turn the potatoes over (they will be hot) and cook for another six minutes. When finished, let cool then slice down the middle and serve.
3. The green beans: Spray a large pan with non-stick cooking oil, then place desired amount of green beans into the pan along with 1⁄4 cup of butter. Stir fry. Once the beans are sizzling, turn heat to medium and cover until the beans turn bright green. Serve.
