I don't read the paper as much as hubby does, I read the local news and see the front page of the paper and look at the front page of the sports to see if I am on there. I am rolling on the floor laughing at that one, like I am the most nonathletic human there is on the face of the earth. Of course when grandson was small, maybe three to five I could be the coach and player and cheerleader of his teams. I was pretty good at multitasking at those jobs. Now when we played basketball, I would grab him as he dribbled circles around me and give him a good Nana kiss. He would tell me in a cute 3 year old voice, love those voices, that was not in the rules.
There is one section of the paper I do hunt for though~ the one where the post a recipe every once in a while and the American Profile little booklet that comes some day of the week, I never remember what day but Eldon knows not to chunk it until I look for A NEW RECIPE !!!!!!! He must still like them though or he would probably just tell me it is not in the paper this week.
Looking thru the pages I found a recipe!! Surprise upon surprises. It is Peppered Beef with Pineapple Salsa. Now what could be wrong with this combo ? I mean it has BEEF, Eldon's favorite and salsa, my favorite. Pineapple Salsa with jalapenos at that. Now I made it and he like it as I did, even though----gasp---- I am not crazy about beef steak. I know how could I be a Texas and not like beef steak you ask. Remember I was not born in Texas so that probably explain the earth shattering puzzle.
Now I will make again but cut back on the jalapeno pepper this next time. But I did get the go ahead from Eldon to make again. A success in my eyes.
Here you go the steak and salsa. Now Eldon likes his steak pinkish inside, I had to get a meat thermomator to help assist me in this task. I just thought it was so pretty so had to share. Fresh pineapple by the way and cilantro also.
I thought I would add a PS here---- so P.S. here is the recipe if you might want it. Several have asked for it.
Peppered beef with Pineapple Salsa
1 cup peeled and diced fresh pineapple
1/2 cup diced red bell pepper
1/4 cup diced red onion ( you know I omitted that little killer of Eldon)
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves
2 teaspoons minced fresh jalapeno pepper ( I am going to cut to one next time I make it, was a bit warm, either that or I used to much jalapeno
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/2 coarse salt
fresh ground black pepper ( I just used coarce ground pepper)
1/4 cup jalapeno pepper jelly
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 1/4 pound beef flank steak ( I think any type of steak would be good here ) blotted dry on paper towels
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspon freshly ground black pepper
1. To prepare salsa, stir together all ingredients. Cover and set aside.
2. To prepare beef, melt jelly in a small pan; stir in Worcestershire sauace and set aside.
3. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet over high heat until hot but not smoking. Sprinkle both sides of steak with salt and pepper, place in pan and cook about 4 minutes per side, turning once, or until desired degree of doneness.
4. Reduce heat to low and spoon on jelly glaze. Cook 1 minute longer, until thoroughly heated and beef is glazed. Remove from pan, divide among 4 dinner plates, spoon on salsa and serve.
