Steak and {the best} Asparagus {in the world}

One weekend I had the urge to cook! I made chicken salad for lunch on Saturday. This recipe set for dinner that night, and then a coffee cake for breakfast Sunday. It was really fun! Sometimes a girl just really needs to cook!

This particular recipe set is especially good for a date night in. Seriously you impress the socks off of your date, man or woman I promise!

Garlic-y Steak


Your favorite steak X's 2 
Salt and Pepper Rub
Mustard, White Wine, Garlic, beef broth, salt and pepper sauce.

1) Rub steaks with salt and pepper {yes really, that's all you need}
2) Cook to desired "done-ness", while cooking stir together other ingredients over medium heat until combined.
3) Top steaks with asparagus spears {below} and sauce. 
4) enjoy!

{The Best Asparagus in the World}

*note* if you don't like asparagus, or your date doesn't or whoever really I can promise you that this recipe will change your mind.


Ingredients:

Asparagus
Olive Oil
Sea Salt or Kosher Salt

1) Rinse asparagus.
2) Trim asparagus to correct link. {this is a very important {yet easy} process that makes ALL the difference}
a) hold both ends of the asparagus
b) pull both ends down with even pressure on both ends until the asparagus snaps and breaks.
c) the "head" end is the part you keep, the other part disgard. *at this point you may feel like you are wasting food and money but if you cook this part as well you will not be pleased. Its too tough to eat*
3) Place "head" ends of the asparagus in a dish and drizzle with olive oil.
4) sprinkle with sea or kosher salt to taste
5) grill on an outdoor grill or george foreman grill for 4-5 minutes.

Enjoy!

{wasn't that delicious!?!?}

Serve the garlic-y steak and asparagus with a potato of some kind we've done both mashed and baked before!

All for now,

Alexandra
