Dang Tasty Steak with Zesty Vegis

steakvegis
Steak Marinade:

About 3-4T Tay’s Herbed Garlic Oil (Recipe below)
Splash of Worcestershire
Shake of McCormick’s Montreal Steak Seasoning

Hickory Wood Chips and Charcoal Grill!
Plain Salted Butter, melted

Brush Tay’s Oil over Steaks. Splash each side with Worcestershire and brush around. Season each side with Montreal Steak Seasoning. Saran wrap. Marinade for 4 hours, or so.
I use Charcoal Grill with a Cast Iron Griddle that I set onto the grate of grill. I get the griddle to 500 degrees, or so. I lay Hickory Wood Chips around griddle and charcoal. I sear the steak for 1 minute and 30 seconds, then, I rotate it 45degrees (NOT FLIP, just turn it to get those nice grill marks), then, it sits for another 1 minute and 30 seconds.  Then, FLIP your steaks. DRIZZLE seared side with Melted Butter. And, repeat steps. Don’t forget to drizzle with Butter once done.
ONCE DONE… Add onto foil and fold corners in, sealing it into the foil. ALLOW TO SET FOR 7-8minutes!!! DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!
We like ours with a nice pink inside. You can do 3-5 minutes on each side.

Tay’s Herbed Garlic Oil:
2 Med./Large Roasted Garlic Cloves *See notes
Oil Mixture:
1c Olive Oil
1/2T Dijon
1tsp Lemon Juice (100% concentrate kind)
1/8tsp Himalayan Salt

*Notes: To Roast Garlic- Cut off ends of complete clove. Add to foil. Drizzle with Olive Oil. Preheat oven to 400. Close Foil, and place into oven for 15 minutes. Remove from skin.

Premix and whisk all, EXCEPT, Garlic Cloves.
Cook Cloves. Once cool enough to handle, remove skin and place into blender. Add SOME of the oil mixture to blender. Blend. Pour all contents into rest of oil mixture. Place into bottle. I store mine in fridge.
Great for Bread Dip. Drizzle over cooked Steak. As a Marinade. Frying Potatoes. Mix with Tuna and a lil Mayo (Mayo Opt.). Drizzle on Subs. Make Garlic Toast. Etc.

Instant Rice + Water it calls for
Pinch of Sea Salt
Splash of Lime (Or Lemon)
Few shakes of Dried Cilantro

Place Chicken in Ziploc Bag or Bowl. Marinade 6 hours. BEST ON CHARCOAL GRILL!!!
Vegis- I wrap, well, in Foil. Grill. (((GRILL TIPS BELOW)))
I microwave Rice with Pinch of Sea Salt. Once done, add a Little Splash of Lime and then a few Shakes of Cilantro. Toss. Cover.
Eat Chicken on top of Vegis with few Spoons of Rice.

Or Optional to Make Adobo Tacos:
adobochickentaco– Adobo Chicken, A LITTLE Rice, Vegis, Shredd. Cheese (I used Italian 6 Cheese), Sour Cream (Optional)
ALSO, AMAZING on Tacos with just Adobo Chicken, Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese, and Our Beans (Refried Beans + 1 can Basil Oregano Tomatoes + Black Beans, drained, 1/2 small Onion- Mix well.)

Grilling Tip: We build a hill in center of grill. Light charcoal (We used Hickory Charcoal). Once coals are ashy grey, they are ready. Place on food, on outside of hill of charcoal. Prop Grill Open, using a Slightly crushed pop can. Chicken: Lay Chicken on outer part of grill (Outside hill). Once Chicken isn’t sticking to grate, so much, it’s ready to flip. Flip once, that’s it. Cook til Thermometer reads correct temp.
