Since it is Memorial Day weekend it wouldn't be right not to grill something. So we opted for steak.
Flat Iron Steak with Garlic Herb Rub
This recipe came from the Grassfed Gourmet Cookbook
1 tablespoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon dried rosemary
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground fennel
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1-1/2 tablespoons coarse salt (We don't use this much salt so I usually use much less than what the rub recipes call for)
2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
Rub both sides of the steak and let sit. Grill steak on grill at high heat 450 degrees Fahrenheit for 4 minutes and then flip and cook for 4 minutes more. This achieves the doneness to medium rare. Let rest before slicing.
Sweet Potatoes in Foil
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small chunks
4 tablespoons butter
Place sweet potatoes onto a large piece of foil, add butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Place on a high heat grill and cook for 5 minutes, flip over and cook for 5 minutes more. Place on warming rack for 5 minutes and then flip for another 5 minutes. Serve.
Sugar Snap Peas
My husband picked these up at the local farmers market yesterday. Couldn't wait to sink my teeth into them.
Remove the top of each bean to remove the string by pulling down the back of each bean.
I decided that the best way to cook them was to steam them. Place beans in a steamer basket and place onto a pan with water. Steam beans until they are tender.
