This Labor Day weekend we did a whole lot of nothing. We were all in need of some rest and so that’s exactly what we did. Even my son who promptly gets up at 7:30 each day decided to sleep in and give us a break. The other thing we love to do is eat and boy, did we eat! This was our meal to kick off the weekend:
That’s steak, shrimp, and asparagus you see there. The steak recipe you’ll have to pry from my cold dead fingers because it’s a family secret and by family secret I mean only my husband and I know it. My son won’t even get to know it until he fully understands the meaning of keeping secrets. All I can say is, it’s AMAZING and you’ll have to just patiently wait for an invite to enjoy this steak. Yea we’re a little snobby about our steak. We never go anywhere to eat steak because we’re usually displeased. We frown upon those that only season with salt and pepper…what the heck?! (Do you see the salt and pepper sitting in time out in the picture?) There’s a smorgasbord of wonderful spices and you settled on salt and pepper?! Step out of the bland food bubble and go on a spicy adventure!
I suppose I can tell you how I made the asparagus….olive oil, garlic salt, pepper. Nothing fancy, but the garlic salt really goes well with the flavor of the asparagus. That’s not just salt and pepper…there’s a third thing there.
The shrimp…salt, pepper, turmeric, cumin-coriander, red chili powder, and Slap Ya Mama Cajun seasoning. Sometimes I throw in cumin seeds, but I didn’t this time. You could do these on the grill or in the oven or stove top.
Wash it all down with an ice cold beer!!
How do you guys prepare your steaks? Is it fair for me to ask since I won’t tell you how I make mine? 🙂
