Get out your grill before it’s too late. The weather has been fairly warm in NJ and it is still grilling season to our family. Actually, it’s always grilling season around here. Rain, snow, or shine, we love our grill. If you have to take out the shovel and move the piles of snow off the grill, it’s worth it. Especially when hubby does it. So thank you hubby for all the times you’ve stood out in the cold, snow or rain so we could have a nice dinner.
Today’s recipe is a steak marinade that I quickly put together. It’s basic pantry ingredients but really tasty and it has a nice southwest flavor. As you can see, I paired it up with some zucchini and asparagus. I left the potatoes behind. We are saving our carbs for leftover Halloween candy. I used NY Strip steaks but the marinade would work perfect on another type of steak.
