From the Formica Top: Mini Iron Chef - Angus Beef Marinating Steak

What's been going on around my kitchen lately

Mini Iron Chef - Angus Beef Marinating Steak
So, to test myself, I have decided to take a piece of Angus beef marinating steak we bought at the grocery store (weighing in at 1.92 lbs) and create four almost tapas like dishes with it for dinner tonight. I am not sticking to the 1 hour time limit at all. I got this crackpot idea at 11:30pm last night, so I started prep work. A little manic? Perhaps...or maybe I just wasn't sleepy after that nap at a quarter to six at night.

So, this is the menu, and I'll let you know how it goes...

Steak Sandwich with caramelized onions, scallion mayonaise and melted taco-blend cheeses
(steak marinaded in onions, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, Goya Sazon with cilantro and annato, Goya Recaito and extra virgin olive oil)

Chicken-Fried Steak Strips with barbecue dipping sauce
(batter made from flour, cornmeal and herbs; steak marinaded in Worcestershire sauce and Goya Adobo with cumin)

Steak Bruschetta with prosciutto, melted mozzarella, tomato and garlic-herb butter
(steak marinaded in red wine vinegar, Italian seasoning, lots of garlic and extra virgin olive oil)

Steak Pepper Potato Layer with beef gravy and orange zest
(steak marinaded in Worcestershire sauce, juice of one orange and Goya Adobo with cumin)

I think Lenny's pretty damn lucky...
