Do you guys ever randomly dream up recipes? I'm assuming I'm not the oddball out on this one. I do all the time and the ones I dream up are always the best. Last weekend I thought up this garlic herb steak marinade and it turned out to be amazing! It was so tasty! It really tasted like something from a fine restaurant's menu of gourmet foods. Try it out, my friends! I'm sure you'll love it!
Garlic Herb Steak (for 1lb of meat - I had ribeye)
3 cloves of fresh peeled garlic (add more if the cloves aren't a good size)
3 sprigs of fresh cilantro
a pinch of dried sage (about a teaspoon)
dried rosemary (this should be the predominate flavor, so maybe about 1/2 TBSP - I didn't measure)
about 10 black peppercorns (this is necessary to get a great spiciness)
1-2 teaspoons salt
about 1/2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
Place all of the ingredients in a mortar and pestle and pound into an even paste until well blended. Once paste is well blended, stir in extra virgin olive oil. Prepare meat by tenderizing with a fork, salting, and coating with a generous amount of the marinade. Add more olive oil, if necessary, to coat the steak evenly. Massage the marinade into meat. Let marinade for at least two hours, up to overnight.
Sear the meat on both sides over medium high in a hot skillet. Place uncovered in an oven heated to 425
Tip: I didn't have any fresh basil at the time, but I recommend adding two or 3 leaves of sweet basil, depending on the size of the leaves
Enjoy! If you try this recipe out, let me know what you think. I don't really use precise measurements, but they don't really matter in this recipe anyway, so it will turn out fine regardless.
