Back in January, I decided to move in other circles. By that, I mean, expand my Catholic audience and connections to other niches. Enter the SITS tribe challenge. I met wonderful women who are now a close group of friends. We’ve had a Google hangout, created a separate group that checks in daily with one another, share content and tips and tricks for the blogging world (as well as some personal mini-crises). I have to think this is what the founders of SITS had in mind.
SITS (The Secret’s in The Sauce) is a group of 75,000 women bloggers who aim to support one another through commenting and social media shares. The founders, Tiffany and Francesca connect all the dots on blogging, photography, SEO, social media and then some by providing networking opportunities and tutorials. You’re encouraged to sign up and get featured on their site. Today is my day in the SITS sun. Since you can’t have a party with out a parting gift, here’s my gift to you (and a great way to kickoff Summer).
We BBQ a lot in the summertime and this summer will be no different. In fact, we made this very dish on Saturday! I can’t remember where I got it from, I think it actually came from the A-1 bottle. Don’t dismiss those bottle wrappers, some of my favorite dishes to make have come from there.
Marinade for the Perfect Steak
4-5 cloves chopped garlic
Equal parts A-1 Sauce and Balsamic Vinaigrette
4-5 steaks (or more depending on how much marinade you make)
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Combine all of the ingredients and whisk together.
Salt and pepper your steaks (they don’t flavor themselves, ya know) then place them in a casserole dish.
Pour the marinade mixture over the steaks.
Flip each steak over to coat the other side with the marinade mixture. Cover with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for an hour at least (you can marinate them overnight too!)
Get your grill ready, or in our case, the George Foreman Grill (we just got back from vacation and were too lazy to use the outdoor grill. Who would clean that after a full stomach?! Not I!)
For the George Foreman Grill, we only need to keep the steaks on for 7 minutes, but please check the internal temperature to be sure the steaks are cooked thoroughly (or medium-rare like I prefer them).
And because no grill is complete without it’s Grill Master, here he is grilling his glasses off. Thanks honey, I’m on clean up!
I like to have it with a huge salad and a baked potato. Don’t be afraid of the garlic, the marinade isn’t as strong as it looks, it keeps the meat tender and gives great depth of flavor. I guess you could say that the secret to this recipe is the sauce (or marinade)!
If you try this marinade, tell me what you think of it and thanks for stopping by on my SITS day. I know you’ve been given some links to read, but I encourage you to look around, stay a while and follow me via email up top, or on Bloglovin‘, Instagram, Google+, Twitter and Pinterest because you never know what I’m going to post, where!
Thanks for the feature Tiffany and Francesca!
