PW Tremendously Delicious Marinated Steak

It's June at the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club and that means it is my turn to choose a recipe selection for the club to try.  Yay! 

AND it's grillin' time!  Well, it's actually grillin' time a lot at our house.  Even when it's 40 degrees outside you might find the Bassman (not me :-\ ) at the grill.  But summer is almost here and it's not 40 degrees out, hasn't been in a long time as a matter of fact. 

Off I go in search of a Pioneer Woman grillin' recipe.  I have made her favorite burger and it is good.  I could copy her and say it is now my favorite too, it really is good.  I was searching for something besides a burger. 

After seeing some of the grilling contest posts a while back, I chose Tremendously Delicious Marinated Steak.  I immediately warned the Bassman that this would be different, it says it right there on her post.  I was actually a little hesitant, but he was excited to try this.

He likes his steak marinated in Dale's sauce while I prefer garlic powder, salt and pepper on mine.   So all of these spices on a steak are definitely going to be different!    Instead of garlic salt, I used garlic powder and 1 teaspoon of salt.

Smell the cinnamon?  or the chili powder?  Whoever heard of ginger and nutmeg on a steak?  Me either.  Oh my, have I made a bad choice for the ladies at the cooking club?

Add the oil.  This is a first for me, marinating steak in oil.

I wanted to try a decent steak, not flank or skirt, without a high price since we I was skeptical about this.  I chose to use strip steaks.

Smoosh it around and marinate in the frig, at least 3 hours.

We used our old gas grill.  It's been rebuilt twice and the igniter doesn't work, so I don't mess with it myself.  The Bassman is getting a new grill for Father's Day...shhhh...don't tell!

Whoa, flames!

They're almost ready.  We went for medium instead of medium rare. 

The Bassman impressed me with those grill marks! 

We may have canned baked beans when we're feeding the whole family because they are quick to prepare, otherwise I am not a big fan of them.  But since I'm trying this new steak, we also tried the grillin' beans.  I'm not a fan of those either.

Hesitation is gone (rubbing tummy)!  This marinade flavor is not strong like I thought it might be.  It is a slightly cinnamony, slightly southwestern flavor, kinda hard to describe.  But definitely tremendously delicious!

Have you been at the grill this summer?

  1. I reserve cinnamon for oatmeal and dessert, but Tony likes those spices in meat dishes ( like chili) so he'll probably like it.


Meet me at the Well and let me know what you think!
