I have been totally slacking in the dinner department on creativity. Tonight I decided to make my own marinade and make some yummy asparagus like my Mother in Laws recipe. I did cheat and did box scalloped potatoes... ssshhh don't tell. lol The asparagus and steak turned out really good so I figured I would share the recipes!
Teriyaki Ginger Steak
Steak - use your favorite cut
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp minced onion/dried onion (which ever is available)
Tenderize the steak, place all ingredients in a gallon ziplock bag. Make sure to get out as much of the air out of the bag as possible. Place in the fridge for at least 6 hours to marinate. Grill to your desired temperature.
Garlic Roasted Asparagus with Roasted Red Peppers
1 bundle of asparagus
1 jar of roasted red peppers
6 cloves of garlic grated or minced small
1/4 cup olive oil
Clean and place asparagus in a gallon ziplock bag. Add olive oil and garlic. Make sure to get out as much of the air out of the bag as possible. Place in the fridge for 2 hours prior to cooking. Preheat the oven at 400 degrees. On a cookie sheet lay place roasted red pepper than lay out asparagus mixture on top of it. Making sure the asparagus are side by side and not on top of each other. This will make sure they cook more evenly. Cook for 10 mins (more or less depending on how firm or soft you prefer them) turning them over every 2-3 minutes. Keep an eye on them to make sure the tips do not burn.
