Steak it is for dinner

13 years ago

I recently read an old thread and dug out this recipe. Thought you might enjoy it.


You will need:

Two large New York strip steaks (the bigger the better)

Fresh cilantro

3 Limes

McIlhenney Chipotle Pepper Tabasco sauce

Salt and Pepper

1 stick of kerrygold Irish butter

Blue corn chips

Greek salsa (equal parts chopped grape tomatos, kalamata olives, and red onion; mixed with a little fresh oregano)

Sour cream


Your favorite bottled beer, ice cold

Fire up a charcoal or smoked wood grill (don't even think about doing this with gas). Finely mill (chop up) the cilantro. Unwrap the steaks and massage the meat with salt, freshly ground black pepper, and some of the cilantro. In a heat proof glass measuring cup melt the Irish butter in the microwave (about 1-2 minutes on high; keep an eye on it). To the melted butter add the rest of the cilantro, several drops of the chipotle sauce and the juice of two limes. Stir until blended. Take the steaks out to the grill and slap them on. Cook on each side 5-7 minutes. While cooking brush the steaks with the butter/herb/pepper/lime mixture. Remove steaks to plate and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve with lime wedges and blue corn chips on the side topped by sour cream, salsa, and guac. Don't forget the ice cold beer to quench that fire in your mouth.
