Today’s Menu: Buffalo Heel Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Cut Green Beans



To start this sunny Saturday morning off I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Patties, toasted a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin that I topped with Smucker’s Sugarless Blackberry Jam, and my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. First time I’ve the Jennie – O Sausage Patties in a while, love them! Another beautiful Summer Day out there, 88 degrees but low humidity. But by Sunday in the 90’s and humid! Did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom after Breakfast. Then after Lunch ran a couple of errands for her. All caught up for the rest of the day so I kicked back and caught up on some shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Heel Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Roasted Red Potatoes and Cut Green Beans.


I had purchased the Wild Idea Buffalo – 12 OZ. ROUND HEEL STEAK a while back and had it in the freezer. I put in the fridge to thaw overnight. First time I’ve prepared or had Heel Steak, and what a beautiful cut of meat! Very lean with no fat. To prepare it I’ll need a Cast Iron Skillet, Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, Crushed Rosemary and Fresh Thyme.





To prepare it I rubbed the Steak with a light coat of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with the Crushed Rosemary, fresh Thyme, and McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the Cast Iron Skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and a 1/2 tablespoon of extra Light Olive Oil, on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 minutes per side to a beautiful Medium Rare, It cooked up beautifully. As I said it’s the first time I’ve had Heel Steak, it’s a great cut of meat that’s so tender and flavorful! I’m the newest member of the Buffalo Heel Steak Club! I’m ready to order more from Wild Idea! The Steak was huge so I plenty leftover for Steak and Eggs in the morning or for Lunch tomorrow.


For one side I prepared some Roasted Baby Red Potatoes. Preheated the oven on 400 degrees. Next, I washed and scrubbed the Potatoes off. To prepare them I needed; 1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil, Dried Rosemary, Dried Thyme, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I start by heating up a Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat and as that’s heating up I cut the Baby Red Potatoes in half. Combined all ingredients in a large bowl and added the Potatoes. Toss to coat Potatoes and added them to the Skillet. Fry them about 4-5 minutes and transfer the Skillet to the oven, for about 15 – 20 minutes until they are fork tender. This is why I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven, and then an easy clean up.



For a second side I heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. I also reheated a couple of slices of leftover Pillsbury French Bread. Had a Diet Peach Snapple to drink. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Devine Triple Chocolate Ice Cream Bar, only 80 calories and 12 net carbs per bar.







Wild Idea Buffalo – 12 OZ. ROUND HEEL STEAK
This cut is a favorite of Jill’s: loaded with flavor, it comes from the most tender part of the primal round. A hidden cut that only skilled artisan butchers are aware of. We’ve cut it into a 12 oz. portion, making it a perfect dinner for two option. Marinade is optional. Rub with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and grill or pan sear.
