Meal #36: New York Strip Steak with Potatoes and Parsley Sauce

This was a special meal to celebrate our three-year anniversary! Steaks are quite the delicacy, so they were perfect for the occasion.


Parsley Sauce

  • 1/2 cup parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red onion
    • Went with onion powder again here, since we weren’t going to cook the sauce
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
    • Getting closer – we’re using red cooking wine this time
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • You know we added more than this

Steak and Potatoes

  • 12 ounces red potatoes
    • Had to estimate, 4 potatoes seemed like the right amount
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 boneless strip steaks

Finished Product

We’ve gotten pretty good at cooking steaks – we deviated from the recipe quite a bit in order to sear the meat our own way, and it paid off. These were juicy and delicious.
