Nothing quite says Sunday like steak.  Sunday Dinner is a ranch tradition.  Gather everybody up, sit at the table and enjoy steak and homegrown conversation.  While Amy and I are not on the ranch, the best we can do is get together listen to some great music and enjoy steak at the coffee table.  While driving to my apartment Amy heard this song and we wanted to share it with Y’all so…. Pour  yourself a glass of wine, turn on the music and get in that kitchen!

Pan seared Steak | Wine & Butter Sautéed Asparagus |
Salad with Balsamic Vinegar

Steak
Last week we found an awesome product at Wal-Mart –
vacuumed packed Frozen Rib-eyes, at $9.00 for 6 individually wrapped steaks.

Directions when you don’t have a grill:
1. Two steaks
2. Lawry’s Seasonings
3. 2 tablespoons Butter
4. 2 tablespoons Oil
5. SkilletThaw steaks either in a refrigerator overnight or in warm water until thawed. Heat butter and oil in skillet until hot on medium heat, lay steaks in the skillet not touching Sprinkle with Lawry’s seasoning lightly on one side. Flip when done on one side, sprinkle again with spices. Cook to desired doneness* and plate immediately and eat hot.It is important not to overcook beef! That is the surest way to make beef bland and boring. Steaks are best when they are cooked medium rare to medium, with some people eating theirs rare and some people medium well. Well done steaks should be banned in our opinion, try it medium well if you must have it dry but please don’t overcook, it will not taste right! Because steaks are not ground up like hamburger, there are not germs inside the steak, allowing for steaks to be eaten rare. You have to sear both sides, but leave the inside to your desired degree of doneness.
*Rare – cook 2 min. on each side.
Medium Rare – cook 4 min. on each side
Medium – cook 5 to 6 min. on each side
Medium well – cook 7-8 min. on each side

Asparagus

  1. 1 stick butter
  2. ½ sliced yellow onion
  3. 1 tablespoon of minced garlic
  4. Half a bundle fresh asparagus
  5. ½ Cup of red wine (Whatever you have on hand)

In a large saucepan melt ½ the stick of butter.  Add sliced yellow onion and cook down to caramelize.  Add garlic.  Let simmer for about 6 minutes or until the onion starts to caramel.  Break bad ends off of the asparagus (not the tassels) and break in half.  Add to the pan with the onion and garlic.  Add the other half of the stick of butter and let simmer for 10 minutes.  When there are about 3 minutes left add the red wine and let it cook with the asparagus.  Remove from heat and let sit for a minute or two to blend the flavors together.  Enjoy!

Salad

  1. 2 Bowls Mixed Greens
  2. 2 Slices Pepper Jack Cheese

  7. 1 Hard Boiled Egg Diced
  8. Balsamic Vinegar To Taste
