A friend of mine taught me how to make those potatoes and onions, we put a bit of Greek Seasoning along with the butter.. she called them HOBO Potatoes… don’t know why.. but they are good..[;)]
Jim, that must be McNamara’s band.
DD, I do those potatoes in the oven, love em. For me the steak is just a wee bit overcooked, nice thing about a good steak is that it will still taste great. I would love to dig into that one. I recently broke down and bought a Thermopen, it’s fast and accurate, just what the doctor ordered for a quick internal temp check.
Looks great, I never thought of pairing potatos and zucchini together though. I’ll have to try that with some garlic. The game, oh well, but on a positive note Ohio has a good band, The Best Damned Band in the Land. Chow Jim
Looking good Dog! And ya, unbeleivable game. I kept waiting for Ohio to wake up… to no avail..
Decided on steak and football tonight, a great combination!
Stopped by Midwestern Meats in Mesa this afternoon and picked up an Iowa corn-fed Bone-in Ribeye, took it home, rubbed it with a little olive oil and gave it a light sprinkle of Black and Red seasoning from Penzey’s.
I made some potatoes in foil, I don’t have a name for it but you basically slice up some potatoes and onions (this time I tossed in some zucchini), add butter and salt/pepper, wrap them in foil and toss them on the grill for a while.
Make sure the foil is tight so that they steam a little, but put them right on the hot grill so the bottom layer gets crispy.
Grilled up the steak.
Potatoes were done.
Sauted up some mushrooms and tossed a salad. Popped a bottle of wine and watched an unbelivable football game!
Wasn’t paying attention and looks like the meat got away from me a little, but it was still quite edible.
That looks amazing!! Thanks for making me hungry
Defintely bake. 375-400 sould be fine, put them on the lowest rack so they brown up a bit. That’s really the good part,eating the "crispys" off the bottom of the foil.
Yummy! I actually like my steak just like that.
For those of us with no grill other than a George Foreman, would you do the veggie packets in the oven on broil or bake?
Cathy, who want to make them to go with kielbasa.
"No damn zucchini, tho." HOORAY!!!
One of my favorite "stopping off" places on my way over to San Diego. I’ve had the O-rings, but haven’t tried the zucchini, I’ll have to next time I’m by.
That steak looked fantastic. I don’t know about the zucchini, however. Not one of my favorites.
The day after the game, the St. Petersburg, FL newspaper printed this comment: "I could not have cared less who won, but here’s a new rule:
THE Ohio State cannot call themselves THE Ohio State for five years since it got THE stuffing kicked out of them."
It was a great day for the Gator Nation! Glad the steak and potatoes were good for you at least.
Farmer Boy’s, The SoCal mini-chain of Burger Restaurants has two side dishes that appeal to us.
1. BIG Thick Onion Rings- sometimes so heavy you have to cut them up and use a fork to dip them!
2. Zucchini Spears, a good 6-plus inches long. Also Battered and deep-fried. The orders are large enough that if you order both, you better have someone to share them with.
I am not a ranch dressing fan, but with these two items it makes a good dipping sauce.[:p]
Potatoes look great–but I got burned out on zucchini during the glut of the ‘eighties, when I swear you couldn’t open your front door without finding a "gift" of the stuff from a neighbor. Right up there with the rats, moles, and birds from our cats!
I used to do something a little different w/ potatoes when I took kids (a church youth group, sometimes unkindly referred to as "sacristy rats") camping. Sorry: no measurements available, just throw it in a deep pot with a cover & cook it until it seems about right. (Oh: we liked thick-sliced peppered bacon.)
Fry LOTS of bacon, cut up some, until not quite crisp. Add a bunch of coarsely chopped onions & brown a little, then about twice as much (or more) red potatoes as onions, sliced. Stir around until hot & steamy, add S & P to taste, cover kind of loosely, and cook until the potatoes are done, scraping the stuff off the bottom periodically & mixing it in for flavor.
Looks good DD!
I love steamed veggies and we use the foil method as well. Yellow squash, broccoli, zukes, onions, butter and a dash of garlic salt. Don’t get crispy though, the squash and zukes have too much water in them I think.
Just saute them in Olive Oil, a little garlic and fresh ground pepper. Nothing else!
