sometimes i crave steak. i don’t make it enough. the worst is when i am watching a cooking show or checking out some recipes and they are all steak related. i find myself needing it, and that’s what happened the other night.
tuesday night after e’s big birthday dinner i was catching up on some dvr. it’s been a while since i have scanned my dvr for cooking shows so i turned one on. sometimes i watch them because i am either really interested in what they are cooking or i really need inspiration.
i needed to feel inspired. like everyone i defiantly go though lulls in the kitchen, especially when i don’t really cook for days at a time. i start to doubt myself and then i can’t get a meal together. our weekends have been chaotic lately. i haven’t really “cooked” in the kitchen. i pass through on occasion to grab a muffin or a piece of fruit, my kids run by the snack draw but we usually just end up taking out or eating out because we are just not home enough to make a meal (or to even think about a meal). things will calm down soon, the weather starts to get cold and outdoor activities come to a halt. that’s when i spend all my time in the kitchen.
back to that tv show, i mentioned anne burrell the other day, she is the one who influenced the duck confit. sometimes i really enjoy watching her because she has incredible energy in the kitchen. we are not much of a meat and potato family but on occasion i am known to cook a mean steak. i was totally fascinated by this recipe. it was simple, it looked good, and there i was, missing some ingredients
i am going to call this steak rub “steak house steak rub”. why? it really made me feel like i was at steak house. i made some changes, this is my own version of her recipe and it was melt in your mouth yummy. making steak this week? don’t miss this.
- combine all the spices and mix.
