Steak and …

I made one of our favorite marinades last night.  Flank steak was on sale at Graul’s so we used the marinade for flank steak.  A great dinner tonight and leftover steak to go on a salad on Thursday.  I sautéed some spinach with garlic and Keith found some french fries in the freezer for a decadent touch.  This marinade is also good on chicken, pork chops and shrimp!  And it keeps well in the fridge.

Chipotle marinade 

  • 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3 TB tomato juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (low sodium soy sauce)
  • 2 TB sherry vinegar
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Meat does not need to be soaked in marinade.
