Steak with Dirty Mediterranean Rice
This is an easy recipe that was super tasty! Perfect for a summer dinner. I always put Ben in charge of the grilling and I take care of the chopping and the stove top. Ben also came up with the name of the rice!
2 New York steaks
Steak seasoning (Mrs. Dash and salt)
½ cup of basmati rice
1 cup of water
1 zucchini, chopped
¼ small red onion, diced
½ small jar of marinated artichoke hearts, chopped
About 10 kalamata olives, chopped
1 tsp of EVOO
Heat grill. Cook rice in pot or rice cooker.
Grill steaks to likeness.
Heat EVOO in a skillet. Sauté zucchini and onion for a few minutes until onion is translucent. Add salt to taste.
Once rice is done add artichoke hearts and olives, and sautéed zucchini and onions.
Once steak if finished grilling, plate with rice.
Note: Use the “touch test” to cook your steak. Touch the middle of your steak with your finger, if it’s soft like your cheek, it’s medium rare; if it’s more firm like the tip of your nose, it’s medium; if it’s hard like your forehead, it’s well done.
