Today was our Pre-Mother s Day celebration with my family. Their request was Steak. Hmmm I had to ask several friends how they cook it, whether grilled over charcoal or stove top. They said it depends on my preference. I also researched several websites in the internet.
1 k. rib-eye steak
1 - 2 T. olive oil
1 t. rock salt
1 t. coarsely ground black pepper
1 t. Knorr seasoning
Brush olive oil on the steak. Season with salt, pepper and Knorr seasoning. Let it stand for 10 minutes only.
Heat a cast iron pan until almost smoking, lower heat to medium. Brush with olive oil.
Cook steak about 3-4 minutes on one side
and about 2 minutes on the other side, depending on the thickness of the steak.
Put on a platter, cover with tinfoil and let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.
I do not eat steak that much, it was just a request from my family. It is actually hard to gauge if the meat is rare, medium rare or well done. I know you are supposed to press it with your finger? But I am not really sure. I suppose, practice makes perfect.
I also cooked ....
mashed potatoes ....
buttered corn and peas...
Hermie cooked fried chicken wings.
Gilly brought Burong Mangga which she made herself! I have to ask her to teach me.
They were looking for dessert but I cannot eat sweets so no dessert for everybody. Good thing Ate brought pomelo.
I am going to visit my Mom tomorrow at Manila Memorial Park. I do miss her so much. I wish with all my heart that she is still here to celebrate a special day for all mothers.
