I was going to post this on the “Whats for Dinner” page… but the story behind this needs to be told to understand the reasoning for creating such a dish. 🙂
So- my husband had a family friend over to help with a certain large project he’s working on outside. (I’ll be updating ya’ll later with what he’s been working on for me… can any of you guess?) Anyway- they got so lost in their work that they were outside until the moon had risen and darkness was settling. Of course, I wanted to be able to offer our guest to stay for dinner. I had steak laid out for the day- but with the rising cost of meat there was barely enough for our family of four to enjoy steak just grilled. I had to come up with something that would stretch the use of the sirloin- and voila- Steak and Noodles. 🙂
Here’s what the meal consisted of:
Petite Sirloin Steak sliced in strips and marinated in my favorite seasoning… (you choose your own!) then cooked to my liking (medium rare, well done, etc).
Cooked Fettuccine noodles
Garlic Alfredo sauce
Cooked pieces of bacon
Chopped black olives
So… mix it all together (including the juices from cooking the meat) and you have a very flavorful meal that is satisfying for everyone as well as sort of “fancy” as there’s steak in it. 🙂
What would you make for sudden company? I’d love to hear your ideas!
