He was a delightful blonde maine coone who spent most of his time acting like a dog and cuddling with us. He was the absolute best cat. But sadly our neighbors dogs didn't think so and they got him during a sun nap. It was a hard goodbye. But we are thankful for the time we had, however short it was. Other things we were up to this summer included camping and building and cooking and learning about herbs and I have all sorts of things to share with you through the cold months. I also wanted to sneak in an update on our store! We've just finished stocking it for this friday so go have a look! (click on either of the links to our etsy shop or our hyena cart store ~ both stores offer different items!)
Now we'll start off short and sweet with a quick recipe.
Drool Worthy Smoked Beef (Hanz' favorite :-)
1 large steak
2 tablespoons stone ground mustard
2 tablespoons Worchestershire sauce
1/2 cup green olives
1/2 cup sliced onions
sea salt and cracked pepper to taste
Take 1 large family sized steak and slice it in the middle, not quite all the way through, like you are making a butterfly, and lay it open. Then spread it with a mixture of stone ground mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Season with sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Then sprinkle it with chopped green olives and sliced onions. Now you will close it up and tie it off so it stays together. You can wrap the whole thing in foil to make it easier if you like. Then you are going to set your BBQ to the hotter "smoke" setting and smoke it for 1 to 2 hours or until done. If you smoke it just right, you will get that pink outer edge! Beautiful. (A pink inside means it's not cooked) When it's done cooking, take it off the heat and let it rest to absorb all the juices again. Then slice it thin and serve! Enjoy!
