I'm a broken record
The Complete Family Cookbook Copyright 1969
1 2-pound flank steak or 1 ½-inch thick round steak
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon sherry
1 finely minced garlic clove
1/8 teaspoon powdered ginger
Salt and pepper
Combine sauces, oil, sherry, garlic and ginger. Coat both sides of steak with mixture. Let stand at least ½ hour before broiling. Pre-heat broiler. Place steak on rack with surface of meat 3-inches from the heat. (Recipe refers to a timetable for broiling meat – I broiled about 7 minutes per side.) Season with salt and pepper. Carve diagonally across the grain in very thin slices.
How many ways can a person combine soy sauce, Worcestershire, oil, sherry, garlic and ginger into a marinade? We may find out! I've done it here many, many times. I can't help it. We like marinated meat and I always have all of these ingredients on hand. I'm drawn to these recipes but maybe it's time to give them a rest as far as blogging about them.
But it's all I've got for you today. I didn't get around to making some of the recipes I had planned on making.
I bought this piece of 'natural' beef on clearance. As much as I'm trying to keep my grocery bill down, I am trying to choose healthier options when I can.
I spent over $100 this week but my grocery bill was still much lower than it's been. It's not easy keeping it down.
Question of the Day: Have you given up anything at the grocery store? Last night I switched from the drawstring garbage bags to the flap bags. You get twice as many for the same price. I love the drawsting bags but that's a huge difference.
