This is the second time of cooking steak for Martha Mondays and this was a winner too. The recipe was chosen by Sara at Sassy Suppers and is from Lucinda Scala Quinn’s article in the September issue of Living. We were able to choose from the Mediterranean Marinade or the Latin Marinade and my mum and dad went for the Latin one.
The recipe was easy, mix together four smashed cloves of garlic, oregano, oil and lime juice into a bag (I used a bowl) and add the steak and let it marinade. I actually hadn’t left four hours or more free (I went clothes shopping) so I marinated mine for about two hours, and I didn’t use the steak cuts suggested of flank, hanger or skirt as we don’t have those cuts readily available here. Besides it is so rare that we have steak (the second time I have ever cooked it) that I wanted something a bit better so I picked up some thinly sliced sirloin.
The verdict? This was good. We liked it. Maybe I would add the whole amount of lime next time (I hadn’t bought enough of them) but mum and dad really enjoyed it and could taste the garlic and lime. I will make it again as it was quick and tasty.
A very good pick. Thanks Sara.
