Grilled Steaks

Here, I am doing more menu planning with I'm an Organizing Junkie and finding more deals at Pick N Save for $5 Dinners .

They are having a HUGE steak sale at Pick N Save this week! Beef Tenderloin for $5.99/lb and it's normally $8.99/lb! We treated ourselves to a couple of them and ate like kings for a night:-) Steaks for $15.28 for four people?? That's awesome!
My husband Jeff makes the best grilled steaks anywhere. When I asked him to write down the recipe for me to post, he said, "They are just plain old steaks.). So, that's what I called it.
Here is what I am serving this week:

Sunday: Jeff's "Plain Old Steaks" Steak (see recipe below)

Monday: Semi-Homemade Spaghetti Dinner

Tuesday: Garlic Chicken Risotto

Wednesday: Fried Fish and French Fries

Thursday: Eat Out (Soccer tonight:-)

Friday: Left Over Buffet

Jeff's "Plain Old Steaks" Steak4 Servings

2 lb Beef Tenderloin
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Pepper
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Minced Onions
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1. Take steaks out of frig for 10 minutes before seasoning them to take the chill off.

2. Season the steaks with salt, pepper, garlic powder and minced onions. Pat the steaks down to make it stick. Place the seasoned steaks in a food storage bag with the Worcestershire sauce. Close the bag and tumble to mix. Allow to set for 10 minutes.

3. Throw steaks on a screaming hot grill. Cook to desired finish (i.e. rare, medium, etc.) about 5 minutes a side.

4. Allow steaks for rest for 10 minutes before serving to redistribute the juices. Serve with sauteed mushrooms and baked potatoes.

Hi Susie!

I hardly ever make steak because I'm so scared of messing it up and wasting a good piece of meat! But, I did realize what I was doing wrong in the past and that was not having the pan hot enough. I always wondered how people make the perfect steak!! I like your hubby's recipe! I should try that one time!!!!!

Now I really need a big, fat, juicy steak.

Oh I can't wait to grill me up some steaks. I do wish that they were on sale by me too. said...

I love having all of the nutritional information! That Garlic risotto looks GREAT!

My mouth is watering. Thankfully my Smart One's lunch is ready in the microwave. Wonder if I can talk myself into believing it's your hubby's steak.

Sounds so good!! I have got to remember to do this on Mondays. It helps me out so much when I do it. I need to get back into my routine. I'm just off on everything lately. I guess having a baby does that. :)

I may have to add steak to my menu next week. My husband does all the steak cooking for us and so it is the perfect meal. Mom can sit and rest a while (or at least until the dishes need washing). LOL!
