Its About That Time...
So when Matt from Daregal Gourmet emailed me and asked if I wanted to try some frozen herbs the company sells. I jumped on it!! When I got them in the mail and saw they had a grilling blend I knew this would be the first thing I'd try.
I got the grill ready , and seasoned the steaks with the grilling herbs which is a mix of Thyme, Rosemary, Savory and Italian Parsley , i just oiled the steaks and added a little salt and pepper and let them hang out with the herbs while they came to room temp (you never want to grill with cold steaks , it will make the meat more tough). Just 3 minutes on each side , and then let it rest a bit so all the juices don't run out when you cut them and poof! dinner is d.o.n.e.
original blend of herbs with the potatoes , and roasted them for 45 mins at 350. they were PERFECT.
After dinner , I made a really easy strawberry shortcake , with fresh whipped cream.
It ended up being a really great summery meal. Despite the rainy weather outside!!
