Kitchen Hint of the Day!

Cutting down on Salt…..

Instead of salt add a splash of olive oil, vinegar or lemon juice close to the end of cooking time or to cooked vegetables – it can enhance flavors in the same way as salt.

Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg, 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a cold morning! It was 8 degrees with a wind chill at 1 degree! We had a high of 29 degrees and partly sunny out. I’m feeling a lot better today, my stomach is still a little upset but bad. Did some computer work today. I deleted a lot files and updated a few things and ran scans. Not much else to do today. For Dinner tonight we had a 5oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast.

 

I prepared one of our favorite Steaks, a Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Toast. I’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven to 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then I moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 5 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

 

 

I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Raspberry Snapple to drink

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 5 oz. Petite Top Sirloin Steak

Famous for their flavor, these juicy steaks are perfect for the grill. The steaks are cut from the middle and upper part of the primal sirloin and their smaller size makes a great meal for one. 5 oz.

Don’t waste your time flipping…..

You don’t always have to flip your food. When roasting items such as French fries and veggies, preheat your cookie sheet in the oven. This eliminates the need to flip halfway through.

Today’s Menu: Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Cold morning to start, 11 degrees wind chill. High of 25 degrees and mostly sunny out for the day. Well I guess I picked up Mom’s 24 hour Stomach Bug! I had an upset stomach all day. I rested most of the day, hopefully better tomorrow. For Dinner tonight it’s a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip.

 

I wanted something easy to prepare, and what can be easier than making a Sandwich and having some Potato Chips! I had purchased some of the Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef from Kroger. It was a beautiful cooked medium rare and too good to sit in the fridge for long! So for my Sandwich I’ll be using the Boar’s Head Roast Beef, a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and served on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. Now this is a Sandwich! I Can’t even describe how delicious the Boar’s Head Rare Roast Beef and Cheese is. It’s just so tender and flavorful. And of course Cheese, which makes anything better, with the Mayo and Mustard makes this the perfect Sandwich! To go with the Sandwich I’m having some Mike Sell’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips with some Lay’s Ranch Dip. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef

Hand-trimmed and carefully seasoned with pepper, garlic, onion and a hint of lemon for tartness, this cut is then slow-roasted to tender perfection. Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roasted Beef packs classic meaty flavor in each rich and savory slice.
