Week 50 – December 10, 2014 – December 16, 2014
Made on December 14, 2014

I forgot to take a picture of this one, but a friend was coming over to watch the Seahawks game, so I was looking for something quick I could make for lunch. I wanted to make something with the slow-cooker but another friend was borrowing it so I was looking for something else. I decided to try this recipe for grilled steak with a salsa from Food & Wine.

Sometimes, I forget I should read a recipe a day early because while the active time on this recipe is short, you still need time to marinate the steak. I was only able to marinade it for 3 hours, instead of the needed 4, at least. I also decided to eliminate the anchovies. I didn’t know where to find them in the store, and I have never used them before so I didn’t want to spend time figuring it out now. One of my favorite things about salsas is that I get to use my food processor to do all the chopping. All I need to do is measure out the ingredients. So I did that, and let the food processor do all the work (without the anchovies). The salsa was more a like a paste, and looked like a pesto. Even with the ingredients (garlic, basil, olive oil) it tasted pesto-like. I wonder if the anchovies would have made it taste more like a salsa or less paste-like.

The food still tasted good though. I would make this again, but probably play around with the salsa ingredients and amounts.
