Firey Tequila Steak Marinade

This marinade is perfect for tequila and beer Saturdays. Thinly sliced Skirt or Flank steak, when allowed to marinate for 2 nights, will practically flake at the fork after you throw it on the grill for a few minutes. You can also use it to marinate chicken for great Pollo Asado burritos. If you save some of the marinade, it makes for a great baste while the meat is grilling.

Pacific Fish Marinade

This marinade makes for a great summer flavor. I’ve used it as a marinade for smoke salmon, which leaves it so moist in the cente. The sweet citrus flavor also works to give a freshness to chicken and pork.  Skewer some vegetables and use this as a baste while they grill. For a good side to whip up quick, slice up some pears and carrots, top with a little of this and mix up. It may sound weird but it’s so tasty.

Sesame Tuna Steaks

You can find tuna steaks on sale from time to time, since they were on special at the store this weekend, I picked some up and made a great glaze, marinated them and threw them on the grill. Made for a tasty lunch along with a caesar salad. Tua only takes a few minutes which is great to make quickly.

Corned Beef Brisket

Nothing says Irish food like Corned beef and potatoes. For St Patty’s day this year, i made up 2 four pound Beef briskets and sliced them up real nice and thin. I’ve had more ruebens in the last 3 days than I have all year. But for the price, a cheap cut of meat like brisket can really be tenderized up by cooking it low and slow. The store had it on sale for about $2.50 a pound so I stocked up and between sides, sauerkraut, bread and meat, it cost me about $25 to make like 8 solid full meals. Not bad at all to help save some money for the Killian’s and Jameson.

Steak Butter

This butter goes perfect with a thick, grilled steak and even on the side smothered on some fresh biscuits. It has just a little bit of kick but a good herb flavor that gives a freshness to any grilled meat or fish. I “roasted” the garlic for this in the microwave. It just takes too long to fire up the oven and have it heat up the house for an hour and half for only a small batch. But you can cut the top of the head of garlic, lightly sprinkle on some oilive oil, kosher salt and fresh ground pepper. Microwave on about 70% power for about 5 minutes, test it after about 3. Once it’s done you can add it to a toaster oven on broil for 5 minutes or so to blacken the top, then you can use it just like normal, at a quarter of the time.

Homestyle Bacon Gravy

This weekend I was making breakfast and made biscuits, only because I had a tube that I wanted to get rid of. While I was making Bacon, I decided to go with a sausage gravy idea, so I whipped this up and it came out pretty good. it’s a really easy recipe and it was all stuff that I had anyways so it cost next to nothing for me to have breakfast and lunch.

Super Easy Broccoli Soup

I made this soup after coming across the video on youtube. It’s so easy it’s stupid and it makes for a good healthy lunch. I like broccoli but usually only when it’s stir fried in a sauce so I added a few things to mix it up. I threw in 3 cloves of garlic and about 1/3 of an onion to the broccoli as it boiled and then added that to the food processor. Also, Instead of drizzling the Olive Oil in the bowl I just added about a tablespoon to the blender as well so that it was mixed in. Instead of the walnuts and goat cheese, I just shredded some pepper jack cheese and then I used Sriracha to drizzle over at the end.
