Food: Dinner Tonight – Cajun Steak

Had a flank steak in the freezer and wanted to try something different then the norm – my own simple spices, garlic, butter, seared in wine and voila dinner is served. Except, tonight I wanted to step-it up a notch – in terms of spices and style of cooking – although as I read this recipe, I realize it is very similar to my usual.  I am siding this dish with a leafy salad tossed with olive oil and lemon juice. Voila! for this nights dinner.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 1/2 pounds beef tenderloin or flank steak, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves, plus additional thyme for serving
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, more or less to taste
  • kosher salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 bell peppers, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons salted butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 3 cups steamed rice, for serving

  • fresh herbs such as basil, cilantro, and or mint {more}

Off topic – I have been debating on selling my photographs – not sure yet, but its in the back of my mind. Don’t you ever get the urge to try something new?
