Here’s a delicious dinner idea for you!! Just, don’t make it like I did! I had a really strange, unmotivated Monday but please don’t judge me!
We were camping Friday night, and got back around noon on Saturday! And I was very motivated then!! We got everything cleaned up and put away and Brian fixed my leaky kitchen sink!! Yay!!
Sunday we spent the day with Brian’s family, because a sister from Missouri was here for the weekend! That was such a great time, eating and laughing and encouraging each other! Family is one of the greatest gifts in life, and I’m so thankful also that family by marriage can be as dear to the heart as one’s blood family!!
Anyway, I believe because we were out of the house all day Sunday, my sweet girl did not sleep that well that night so Monday morning was blah…. thankful for a gracious husband on those days!
But the real reason my Monday was unmotivated is I did not take time with my Savior like I should have in the morning. I was selfish and slept when I should have been spending time reaching for grace to have a great day!! But I’m very thankful for a forgiving Heavenly Father!
So my meat came out of the freezer about 4:00 PM and I was really wishing for a instant pot about then!! But I let it thaw for an hour and then rubbed salt, pepper and coffee grounds on it. Just so you know, coffee grounds make everything delicious!
I fried it in butter and olive oil until it was getting close to done and then put milk, worcestershire sauce, basil, parsley and garlic on top of it and let it simmer for almost an hour.
This is the part you should definitely do different!!! I should have had it in my slow cooker or in the oven for at least 2 to 4 hours. It would have been super tender and falling apart then! That aspect of the dinner was not what made the meal delicious!!
When the gravy has thickened, mix in some chopped kale with the stems removed. Lay the steak back in top. Let it simmer for a while longer to make sure everything is good and hot.
Serve it beside rice and pour the gravy over everything. Get ready for intense and amazing flavor!!
Here’s the recipe!
Creamy Kale Steak over Rice
2 T-bone steaks
2 Tbsp coffee
1 tsp each salt and pepper
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp basil
1 1/2 tsp parsley
1 tsp minced garlic
3-4 dashes worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp flour
4 or 5 stems purple kale
Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
Rub the coffee, salt and pepper all over the steak. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes to let the flavors absorb a little. Heat oil and butter in a oven-safe pan over medium high heat. Sear the steaks in the hot oil until they’re browned. This will ensure that they’ll keep in the moisture.
Mix together the milk, spices and worcestershire sauce and pour 1 and 3/4 cup over the steaks. Cover and slow-roast the steaks in the oven for 2 to 4 hours until they’re tender and falling apart.
In the mean time, remove the kale from the stems, and rip or cut it into bite size pieces.
Remove the steaks from the pan, and make a slurry with flour and the leftover milk. Stir it into the gravy and let it bubble up and thicken over medium heat. Throw in the kale and let it wilt for a minute.
Serve the steaks on a plate with rice and top it with gravy.
