Week-end Steak And Potatoes




Winter has me feeling less than creative right now-sorry! I broke out a pound of breakfast sausage, and paired them with a cheesy hash brown potato casserole. A simple cup of leftover island fruits from my POM salsa, lightened the meal a bit!
We had a couple of marinated steaks the following night, with the left over casserole...
I'm working on a pomegranate juice/liquor BBQ sauce, but need to lighten it a bit..Yes, I found pomegranate liquor! It's a low proof (34) sweet liquor, that should add a dimension to the sauce..
Tonight it will be a Mexican style chicken-but haven't decided what!

Brian Miller said...

Akelamalu said...

Wow Buff you do come up with some great food.

jules said...

I always feel less guilty about heavy breakfasts when I add fruit. It TOTALLY cancels out something. POM BBQ sauce sounds like a wonderfully creative and delicious idea. What times din? ;-)

Barbara said...

We all have uninspired days... and you post about a lot of meals. I know I couldn't do it! That being said, I also don't think there is anything wrong with simple when you are cooking for two. Those simple recipes are usually the ones we like best.

I love that you are finding so many things to do with your Pom. Can't wait to read about you bbq sauce.

Kate said...

Did I miss a post wherein you declared your new found love of POM?

Chef E said...

I have seen that liqueur around...what I love about the POM is it makes a great demi-glaze with the syrupy'ness of it when reducing!

Sounds like a great meal, I would just sit at the table and eat it all up!

POM salsa is a great idea!

The Blonde Duck said...

I love steak and potatoes!

Christiejolu said...

Still sounds yummy!

Katherine Aucoin said...

Great minds...

Michelle Ann said...

POM BBQ sauce???? Those incredients are screaming for a martini! haha

carma said...

I may just have to give that POM another go. Perhaps it is an "acquired taste"?

buffalodick said...

Kris- I find cutting it with citrus really works..
Brian- Tonight, it's Arroz con Pollo in a one pan dish!
Ake- I left out the two home bread loaves that were less than stellar!
Jules- Still fishing for the right ingredients for BBQ sauce..
Barb- Me either! still testing..
Kate- Made a fruit salsa for seafood with it...
Chef- It's sweet, but refreshing- and a good match for other ingredients..
BlondeD- It hit the spot!
Christie- Hope tonight is a little more exciting..
Katherine- So true!
Michelle- That would work well!
carma- It is sweet, but citrus flavors can reel it in a bit...

Hang in there Buff, in a week it will be March. That sausage casserole sounds pretty darn good and always hard to beat a good steak.

buffalodick said...

Highlander- Winter here hangs on like a fungus! Nothing to see snow in April..I've seen it in May!

Martha's Menagerie said...

Sounds great! You are hooked on the POM aren't you? I am too! It makes a great glaze for pork roast too reduced with brown sugar - and pie too!

snowelf said...

Hi Unclebuf! I loved your last meme, that was fun!

That pomegranate liquor sounds delicious!!

--snow

Judy said...

This has been a cold winter, and I think it has gotten to most of us. I'm ready for spring.

buffalodick said...

Martha- I am convinced this will show best on pork! Good instincts, dear!
Snowniece- Stay tuned, this isn't easy!
Judy- The older I get, the more I hate snow!

Eternally Distracted said...

That sounds very creative to me :0)

Vickie said...

I'm with you - I've had a bellyful of winter and cannot wait for a little sunshine. Year before last we had a freak snowstorm in June. That really pissed me off. Enjoy your Mexican chicken!

Marjie said...

Looks like a good winter meal to me. They're promising us 3 storms this week, although the first one is fizzling out. I think those weather fools just like to scare or depress us regular people!

buffalodick said...

E.D.- I tried creative last night, and now I have to fix it!
Vick- Chicken didn't work like I expected- will convert to a soup soon..
Marjie- I'm supposed to be buried in 8"-10" of snow- we got a total of about 4"....

buffalodick said...

Judy- Sorry I missed you- You must be from around here!

tattytiara said...

Simple, sure - simply delicious.

Ily said...

Let me know how to prepare the BBQ sauce...sounds like it's going to taste fantastic!

buffalodick said...

t.t-I have some damage control on my Arroz con Pollo I made..next post!
Ily- I'm going to try and get to that today!

The Blonde Duck said...

I love the story of your first baton twirling girlfriend!

buffalodick said...

BlondeD- True story! I spent some time between 9th-10th grade getting hauled to these competitions..I didn't like baton twirling that much, but being surrounded by half dressed, too much make-up girls my age wasn't too bad!

Hey BD... finally have a minute to catch up, missed following you for the last week.

And i have had the pom booze... makes a great glaze

buffalodick said...

Griller! How's hot weather feel? I live in a frozen Hell... POM booze is sweet- plan to cut it with citrus...
