My husband grew up on a farm 30 miles from Canada and 30 miles from North Dakota. They grew wheat and had cows. He is pretty proud of his love of beef. A couple of days ago, I suggested that since we are in Bozeman now, maybe we could try some fun new restaurants like maybe a Thai restaurant. He said, "You're trying to change me!" LOL! That man wants beef and only beef so help him. - And Montana beef. From one Montana cow. Not like grocery store beef where the hamburger comes from hundreds of cows in a 1lb package.
I am not usually the beef cooker in our house. I REALLY want to make sure it is done enough, and my husband just has a better technique. So, usually when I do cook the beef, I am a little disappointed. Not today, though! This recipe turned out great and was so flavorful, I am giving myself a little clap on the back.
Garlic Butter Steak Bites
Halve the Baby Potatoes and parboil for 8 minutes. Drain. Melt 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil and 1 Tablespoon Butter in a large skillet. Add potatoes and cook for 7-9 minutes until they are "golden crispy". Move to a plate and use the same pan to continue.
In the skillet, melt 2 Tablespoons Butter, 5 Crushed garlic cloves, the thyme, oregano, and rosemary. Add the steak bites in an even layer across pan. Turn until desired doneness.
Whalaw! A perfect steak and potato dish for my beef loving dude.
Oh, it feels good to be home in Bozeman, Montana! I love looking out my windows and being able to see mountains in every direction. I just feel home.
Getting here has been an adventure, though. Months of packing stuff up, hauling to storage units, listing and selling house, timing being so perfect but not quite. Moving day arrived and I was a little taken aback by just how dirty our house was. (We had rented it out for the last five years) I filled up the tub and turned and the jets and LOTS of black hairy things came rushing out. OH! I knew it. Many tubs of bleach water later, it was all clear. Now on to the rest of the house.
By the way...When we moved out of this house five years ago, I left a box of this. Oh well. The house will be very different in a year. At least I'll know it's clean :)
