Marinated Steak with Rice


Nick made dinner last night. I had NOTHING to do with it. However, I did agree to blog about his tasty creation. Since I have gained several pounds due to my stupid kidney stone [and not being as active as I should be] I opted out of dinner last night, which left Nick on his own. He marinated steak overnight in a garlic balsamic sauce. While you do not necessarily have to marinate the steak overnight, it does not hurt! 
  • Steak [whatever will feed you and your family]
  • Garlic balsamic marinade [or whatever you like best]
  • 1 1/2 cup uncooked rice
  • 1/2 cup Mexican cheese
  • 1/2 tablespoon Mexican spice
  • Gorgonzola cheese 


  • boil water 
  • add rice, spices, mix, and cover for 10 minutes  
  • we added some of the juice of the steak to the rice - it gives it a great flavor 
  • before serving add 1/2 cup of Mexican cheese and mix thoroughly

  • grill on George Foreman for approximately 15 minutes or until cooked to your individual taste 
  • sprinkle gorgonzola cheese over steak and serve


This was such a simple meal. It was really simple for me because all I did was add the cheese to the rice. Kudo's to my Panda Bear for making such a great meal... and making his official debut on my blog.


Until next time, 
Happy Grillin'
