Scorchmarked Steak

Postby Sailor Kenshin » Mon Aug 28, 2017 3:02 pm

Alfer's post about steak difficulties got us thinking mmmmmeeeat, so we picked up a couple strip steaks this morning and tried to pretend we were having a steakhouse meal. There was a drop of Nuketater Salad left, and I made creamed spinach. There's a salad in there somewhere. The steak was an inch and a half thick! It got a coating of mayo, and SB SPG, and searmarks via the Weber mini-Q. No smoke, but it managed to taste a LITTLE smoky. Maybe due to the grill catching on fire yesterday.

Not as tender as some other cuts, but still pretty good. ;)

And when the grill catches on fire it's a surefire reminder that it's time to clean it out. :D

Ahhh...! Do you not know creamed spinach in NZ? It's a steakhouse staple, usually made by cooking chopped spinach, making a classic bechamel sauce, and mixing the two. I love creamed spinach.

But my middle name is 'Layy-Zee.' :laughing7: And I can't make a bechamel that doesn't disappoint me.

So I take a box of frozen spinach, a can of cream-of-whatever soup, a generous pinch of dried onyawn, and a few seasoning. Throw them all in my mini-slow cooker, work it on high for a while, then turn to low.

Done! No muss, no fuss. Woohoo.

Thanks for info, I've made bechamel sauce so I will try with silver beet, or as you call it collards. Think this might be real good. I'll think about the quick way as well.

White sauce. Y'know, a butter roux that has no color, and then you add milk.

Flour n butter is your roux, milk for bechamel. I only use cornstarch as a thickener for my shroom sauce.
