Steak and sides

There has been so much snow and rain and mud the last few months, we have hardly been able to get to the grill.  Now that spring seems to be arriving, we’re craving food on the grill.  We had some steaks in the freezer which we were planning to have.  When Keith investigated he discovered that they were tiny – 2 2oz filets.  He stopped at the store for an additional steak to supplement and  marinated them in Worcestershire sauce and grilled them.  I was in charge of sides:

Oven baked sweet potato fries

  • 2 – 3 sweet potatoes cut into strips
  • 2 TB olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried chipotle pepper

Preheat oven to 450.  Toss potato strips with all other ingredients (I was a little bit heavy-handed with the spices tonight but the end result was delicious) and spread out on a sheet pan lined with foil.  Bake 25 – 30 minutes stirring halfway through.

Sauteed spinach

  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 package baby spinach
  • 1 tsp butter

Heat oil over medium heat.  Saute garlic for about 30 seconds (don’t let it brown).  Add spinach and toss quickly as spinach wilts.  After about 2 minutes, add butter and toss to combine.

These would also be good with lamb.
