What’s for dinner tonight: Grilled Steak and Potatoes with Snap Pea Salsa
Grilled Steak and Potatoes with Snap Pea Salsa that’s what.
I’ve had my Real Simple magazine open to that recipe for more than a week now. I finally gathered all the ingredients I needed to make it. The ingredient list is fairly simple using fresh ingredients: NY Strip Steak, fingering potatoes (or in my case baby red potatoes), snap peas, fresh mint, fresh parsley, lemon juice, olive oil, and salt/pepper. Lucky for me my herb garden is doing very well allowing me to snip the mint and parsley making the snap pea salsa really fresh.
This dish is very simple to make.
In fact, it is a 30-minute meal from start to finish making it a good weeknight meal. And let’s be honest, who wants to spent hours in the kitchen preparing the nightly meal? Even though I run my own business in my home, I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen preparing quality meals for my guys.
Add to that it is summertime and very hot. The steak and potatoes are done on the grill keeping the kitchen nice and cool. Yeah for the electric bill.
As the potatoes and steak are on the grill, you can make the snap pea salsa. The hardest part of this is slicing the snap peas thinly. The snap pea salsa adds a freshness to the potatoes and steak.
Remember to turn the potatoes a couple of times on the grill to make sure they don’t burn. And don’t overdo the steak. It really should be pink in the middle unlike my photo.
While I liked the whole meal, my guys weren’t thrilled with snap pea salsa. That said I’d make it again.
