I purchased the New York Strip Steaks from a local butcher. Can’t you see the difference? These steaks have slight marbling, but mainly the fat is on the outside-which cooks and adds flavor and makes the steaks nice n juicy! Take your steaks out of the refrigerator for about 20 mins before grilling.

I keep it simple with steak- fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, and seasoned salt.

Sprinkle it on

Heat grill to med-high heat. Place the steak on the grill, wait 2 mins and turn the steaks slightly to give that nice criss-cross pattern. Cook for another 5 mins. Then, turn over and repeat. 7 mins a side will get you medium for a thick steak. Take off grill with tongs and let sit for a couple mins to let the juices soak through.

Easy Skillet Potatoes

Corn on the cob- I purchased this sweet corn at a local farm. YUM! Look for a multi-colored corn (white and yellow) All you do is husk it, place it in a pot of cool water, turn on the heat- when it boils the corn is done! Butter and salt!

I also sliced and sauteed onions in a pan with butter, salt and pepper.

  1. Hi there from South Africa, All looks great, but when I looked to see how you made the yummy looking “smashed potatoes” there were no instructions! Were they boiled,? baked ? in or out of foil? They look to have been just crushed a bit by hand and sprinkled with grated cheese and bacon bits? Photo is mouth watering, thanks!

    1. Click on the link under the picture that says Smashed Potatoes. It takes you to another website called Home 4 Good. There you will find instructions. They do look good!

  2. I just wanted to add that I never liked mushrooms either, but one day I tried them with a steak and it was wonderful. The only way to eat them for me is with a good steak. What I do is cut the steak and the mushroom and they must go together in my mouth. Not separate. Weird I know but I think you should at least give it a try. Thank you for the recipes. Looks delicious!
