Quick and Easy Saturday Night Dinner

Still tired of cooking, so I’m relying on uncomplicated meals.  Tonight will be very simple, but very tasty:

  1. Peppered Sirlion
  2. Baked Potatoes
  3. Tossed Salad

Peppered Sirloin:  About an hour or more before cooking, coat 1 lb of sirloin with 2 tsp crushed garlic and fresh ground pepper.  This will be a thick coating of pepper, giving the steak a light crust when broiled (or grilled if weather permits).  Refrigerate until it’s time to broil.  I’m broiling for 5 minutes each side for a rare steak.  Let it sit for 2-3 minutes before slicing and serving, as you would a roast.

Baked Potatoes: Scrub 4 large potatoes well, dry completely, rub with olive oil and coarse salt.  Place 2 potatoes each on metal skewers and bake at 450 degrees for 30-40 minutes, until potatoes are soft.  Remove from oven just before broiling steak.

Tossed salad:  Tonight will be butter lettuce, red lettuce, spinach, snow peas and jicama tossed with Thousand Island dressing.
