Steak and potatoes. This is a pretty basic meal enjoyed by millions everywhere. If you allow it to, even steak and potatoes can get kind of boring too, particularly if you fix it the same way all the time. But it doesn’t have to be. Larry is most definitely a meat and potatoes kind of guy. And there is nothing wrong with this, I love meat and potatoes too. But I like to shake things up and liven them up a bit. With just a few simple additions, your steak and potatoes gets a whole new life and a whole new personality. Changing things up brings a new dimension to just plain old steak and potatoes.
I simply started out with creamy mashed potatoes and a grilled marinated steak. Then I added some sauteed spinach, garlic, shallots, mushrooms and tomatoes to make it more of a Tuscan or Italian style steak.
Adding the spinach mixture was the only thing I did differently, but the whole meal was transformed. It went from simple and delicious to simply WOW! The meal went from being a typical American meal to an exotic Italian delicacy with just a few simple additions.
To make the meal complete, I served it with some warmed bread and a smooth red blend, that was like liquid velvet. Perfecto!
Sometimes the best rule of thumb is the K.I.S.S. rule, and to just keep it simple. I’ve heard the second “S” stands for stupid, but I don’t like using that, so you can change it for whatever you like. 🙂 !Buon Appetito!
Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
