Skirt Steak, Pepppers and Onion Sub and an Award!

First I trimmed the fat off of the skirt steak and cut it into thin slices. I put it in a marinate of balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, oil, salt and pepper. I left that to marinate in the refrigerator all day. I julienned a red pepper, green pepper and onion. I heated up some olive oil and a knob of butter in saute pan and added the vegetables. I sauteed them until tender and added the steak. Cooked that through and voilá a very easy meal. Some rolls, cheese and condiments.

I was nominated for an award by Cara from Cara's Cravings. A creative writing award! Sorry but Sister Marjorie is turning over in her grave right now. So, as I understand it I have to write seven creative little-did-you-know's about myself, but only one is true. The other six are false. And I leave it up to you to figure out which is true. And I also pass the award on to other bloggers! Too exciting...

7 things about me...

1. I love polenta
2. Chocolate vs Fruit Tart... Chocolate Tart wins
