Default For One: Steak and Sugar Snap Peas w/Mushrooms

Grilled Steak with Sugar Snap Peas & Mushrooms

Ingredients

1 Steak (Lamb, Beef, or Pork)
1/4 lb fresh Sugar Snap Peas or Green Beans
1/4 container Mushrooms, sliced
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
2 Tbsp Butter
3 Tbsp White Wine
Salt & Pepper to taste

Procedure

Lay out some aluminum foil. You need two sheets, and cross them so that they form a ďcrossĒ of sorts. Put your beans in the middle. Add salt & pepper. Add the sliced mushrooms. Sprinkle the minced garlic over it all. Now add the butter.

Fold up the first layer of foil. Bring the ends together in the middle and fold. Then seal the bottom and leave the top open. Once that is done, add your wine into the opening then seal it. Now wrap the other piece of foil around that package and seal. Set aside.

Season your steak of choice, and bring to room temp.

Heat your grill to medium high heat, and then put the foil back beans on and cover the grill. Let sit 12 or so minutes. Now add the steaks and grill 4-5 minutes per side for medium / medium-rare. Grill longer for more done. As you grill the steak, the beans will remain on the grill and off to the side.

I used the 12Ē Weber for this, and about 1/2 a chimney of charcoal.

I also added a box of Pasta Roniís Garlic & Olive Oil Vermicelli. I love that stuff.

-------- No Grill? --------

If you want to do this inside, then follow the same procedure, but preheat your oven to 400. Put the foil pack beans in the oven on a cookie sheet and let cook 12-15 minutes.

Using an oven safe skillet such as Cast Iron, brown the steak on both sides on your stove top over medium-high heat. About 2 minutes per side. Once brown on both sides, place the skillet in the oven with the beans to let the steak finish cooking to your desired doneness.

Notes

Tonight I used Top Sirloin Filets. They were on sale for 5.99 per pound. I really wanted Lamb, but they (Publix) didnít have any tonight. The beans are from the fresh produce section; just get a plastic bag and grab a handful. I grabbed 0.26 pounds at 1.99 per pound = 0.52. The Past Roni is 1.89 a box.

I ended up with some left over mushrooms that Iíll do something with in the next day or so.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

Why? We all use boxed stuff sometimes. I love Kraft mac and cheese. I haven't had the pasta roni in years but I used to make the creamy garlic shells with lemon and garlic lamb chops all the time (now I make a homemade creamy garlic bechamel and shells). I loved those noodles but my girls didn't so I stopped buying them.

I think I have a rough recipe for the sauce somewhere if you are interested.

Oh Keltin, that looks delicious. I can't get Rice-A-Roni products here, so would LOVE to have your creamy garlic/lemon recipe, Peeps.

Ok Karen when dinner is all done and cleaned up I will look for the recipes for my Lemon and garlic Lamb chops and creamy garlic bechamel shells dinner. It may take me a few hours to work up the recipes as long as I get some quiet time for myself. LOL

Thanks, Peeps - no rush, amiga...it's too hot to cook right now, anyway. But it sounds like something we'd both like.

Ok Karen. I don't have any pics so maybe I will wait to post the recipes till I make the dishes. I have been wanting to make a lamb dinner for awhile. As soon as they go on sale I'm there!! LOL

Also I have ingredient lists for the dishes and need to get measurements.

Karen, here is my homemade rendition of this Pasta Roni dish. I was trying to emulate this when I made it, and it turned out pretty darn close!
