So, how was your Mother’s Day? I got the perfect gift for me, given my recent obesession:
My day as a whole was nice – I got taken out to breakfast, got a nap and a homemade card in the afternoon, and my dinner made for me by my two favorite men.
We had twice baked potatoes and New York Strip Steaks on the grill. Steak was a real treat for us – we probably only eat it 2-3 times each year.
While I was banished from the kitchen for the day, I managed to sneak in and make a batch of steak sauce. I am a total A1 fan, and I even reached for a bottle while we were at the store the day before, but have you seen the price of it lately?? I decided to take a leap of faith on a recipe I found that swore was an A1 twin and give it a try.
Tasting it on it own, I was a bit disappointed. I used a much bigger orange than she had used and it had a definite orange undertone. I tried it on my steak anyway….
Oh. My. Word.
There it was – A1′s long lost twin sistah…ooozing all over my plate!
I got Randall to try it – he couldn’t believe it, either. It’s seriously awesome, and I now know where to stop at orange (and adjusted the recipe accordingly). I made a few changes from the original recipe, but pretty minor ones.
I placed my leftovers in a squeeze bottle and stuck it in the fridge. With the ingredients, I can see this easily lasting 6 months or longer in your fridge.
Next time you want to impress your cookout guests, spend a few extra minutes and make some of this sauce!
