The Best Soy Sauce Ever

I just had to share this bottle of soy sauce that I bought at the Korean store. How funny! I wonder if it’s a literal translation…

Really Quick and Really Tasty Marinated Steak

The weather has been so beautiful that we decided to grill. There was a steak in the fridge and we were ready to go outside to BBQ. So I had to find a quick way to add a lot of flavor. And I found this amazing recipe.  I just threw some garlic and equal amounts of maple syrup, balsamic vinegar and soy sauce into a shallow dish. I let the steaks marinate for 15 minutes and grilled them. They came out perfect.  The flavors are so bold that it doesn’t take long to infuse the steaks with flavor. The recipe calls for sirloin flap steaks but I used a top sirloin and cut it in half to make two thin steaks. A more tender cut would be better, but the flavors really came through in the top sirloin also.

The taste is a little sweet, a little salty, a little tangy and very delicious. In terms of ease and convenience, this recipe cannot be beat. You just throw steaks into some pantry ingredients and go! You barely need to wait for the flavors to seep through. It’s perfect for a weeknight meal when you don’t feel like running to the store. It’s also perfect for a lazy way to make a great-tasting meal. Or when you can’t wait to go outside to grill because the weather is so amazing!

Sesame Soba Noodles with Shrimp

I love the Pioneer Woman’s blog. She takes tons of photos and walks her readers through each step of a recipe. And when I saw her post on sesame noodles, I knew I had to make them. I had every single ingredient in my pantry and fridge. They were calling out to me. I did make some adjustments, though. Her recipes usually call for too much oil or butter or sugar. I prefer lighter cooking. I also don’t like dishes that are just pasta so I took her advice to add veggies and shrimp. I had soba noodles in the pantry which is an Asian buckwheat noodle. You can use any kind of noodle you have or go to the store and try something new!
