Every once in a while, I feel like I should cook something nice for the darling husband. Don't get me wrong - I do ALL the cooking for safety's sake, but the meals are usually what I feel like having. I simply don't get the women who always say to their spouses: "Hunny, what would you like for dinner?" In our household, the non-cook (husband!) eats what he is served.
But, like I mentioned, I occasionally feel like doing something nice, by asking what DH would like. There are really only two answers he gives: steak or tacos. So tonight's dinner is a feast: sirloin steak served with mushroom baked rice & steamed broccoli. Enjoy!
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup worchestershire sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
dash of pepper
Directions: Whisk all ingredients and pour over steak. Let marinade 6 hours, or overnight. Remove from marinade and place on pre-heated grill. Barbeque for 6 minutes per side for medium-rare steaks or until preferred doneness is reached.
Mushroom Baked Rice:
1 cup brown rice
2 cups water
1 small can sliced mushrooms, lightly drained
1 large carrot, peeled & chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 package Lipton onion soup mix (dry)
Directions: Mix all ingredients in a lightly greased 3-qt casserole dish. Bake in preheated oven at 350 F for 1 hour, until liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
1 head broccoli
1 tbsp olive oil
salt & pepper
Directions: Place broccoli in saucepan steamer above 1 inch of water. Steam approximately 5 minutes, until broccoli is tender but still slightly crisp. Toss with olive oil, salt & pepper. Serve immediately.
