This month I was assigned to Jane's blog, The Heritage Cook. I was in foodie heaven looking through all of her recipes. Seriously, the list was so long and hard to narrow down! Her photos are beautiful, most of her recipes are gluten-free, and her writing style is so welcoming. The potato-loving side of me wanted to make her Fully Loaded Green Chile Potato Skins and her Creamy and Cheesy Potato Casserole. With me being a steak-loving girl, and my blog very much lacking in that area, I was also drawn to her steak recipes like her Grilled Steak Sandwiches with Portobello Mushrooms. It's no secret I am all about the grill during summertime. But ultimately I went her Grilled Steaks with Spicy Hoisin BBQ Sauce. I am obsessed with that Asian hoisin flavor and knew it would be a winner.
And it was! PJ loved the sauce, and he isn't a fan of soy sauce usually. I LOVED it! I'll be making it for sure for grilled chicken, pork, steak of course... pretty much everything!
This steaknpotatoeskindagurl says this one's a keeper.
*Note: Hoisin sauce can be found in most Asian aisles in the grocery store.
Grilled Steaks with Ginger Hoisin Sauce
adapted from The Heritage Cook
- 2 Ribeye steaks
- Olive oil, salt, and pepper for seasoning the steaks
- 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons butter for sauteing the onion
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 5 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh ginger root, finely grated
- 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or more to taste
- 1/2 bunch cilantro, minced
- 1/3 cup hoisin sauce
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1/2 cup chicken stock
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 3 tablespoons butter
Saute sliced onion with 2 tablespoons butter in a skillet until caramelized.
Place steaks on a hot grill. Cook steaks for 5-6 minutes per side for medium. Brush with the Ginger Hoisin Sauce during the last few minutes of grilling, reserving additional sauce for dipping. Remove from the grill and let rest on a cutting board for at least 5 minutes. Serve steaks with the caramelized onions and Ginger Hoisin Sauce for dipping.
Next time I'm definitely making that Asian Slaw too!
