Steak, Shrimp and Artichokes

Mmmm, I know these are not hard – but this is how I made this truly yummy dinner. Some things I make ahead of time, but try to balance the timing of each dish so that everything is ready at the same time.Pepper Steak
2 New York Strip Steaks
lightly dusted with salt, cracked pepper, coriander, dill and cayenne

Pre-marinade the dry rub, whatever your time frame 20 minutes to 2 hours or more.
Dust both sides and lay flat. Let the steaks absorb the flavor of the pepper on the outside.

Then I grill the steak to medium on an outdoor grill, George Forman or flat grill; or a frying pan on medium or whatever you have. I don’t add any oil, the cut of the steak will determine how long I cook my steaks.

Artichokes
2 Artichokes, whole
Water (of course)

Use a pot with steam basket and add enough water to steam your artichokes for 20 minutes, about an inch of water, depending on your size and basket. Steam for 20 minutes, then cut in half.

Artichoke Dip
3 tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Mustard
dash of Tapatio
Lemon Squeeze, maybe 1/4 t0 1/2 lemon
Cracked Pepper and Salt.

Mix and serve. Goes good with the artichoke, shrimp and well the steak too.

Shrimp
12-15 Medium to Jumbo Shrimp, peeled
Lemon Squeeze, maybe 1/4 t0 1/2 lemon
Light dusted with Cracked Pepper, Cayenne and Salt.

Mix ingredients in a bowl while heating up a pan, grill or whatever you are using. Oil the pan and saute until the shrimp are done. About 10-12 minutes.

Sauteed Spinach
2-3 cups of baby spinach or spinach cut into 1″ pieces
1/4 medium onion
2 pats of butter or 2 tblsp of olive oil

Heat oil in a frying pan and add onions, cook until translucent. Then add your spinach and cook down. Typically takes about 5-7 minutes total.
