Malbec World Day Dinner - 4/17/2019

Malbec World Day – Elegance doesn't need perfection

"Malbec World Day is celebrated on April 17, to commemorate the day when president Domingo Faustino Sarmiento of Argentina officially made it his mission to transform Argentina's wine industry. On that day, back in 1853, he tasked Michel Aimé Pouget, a French soil expert, to bring over new vines. Amongst his selection, was Malbec."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malbec_World_Day

It's a beautiful spring day here, sunny with temperatures in the mid-50's. Dinner will be cheeseburgers on the grill with a side of oven fries. I think I'll have to open a bottle of malbec as well.

I haven’t got a clue as to what I’ll prepare or what we’ll eat tonight. I’ve still got some of those lovely, huge Red Argentine shrimp. Only about a half dozen or so, but these shrimp are so big that three of them is enough for a meal for us. I could stuff them Cajun-style, or make a garlic cream sauce and serve with pasta.

Right now, I’m making ghee in the oven. So easy, and so much better than butter!

Can anyone tell me what to do with flank steak besides cutting them up into strips and marinating them in teriyaki sauce and broiling them? Add some snap peas, water chestnuts etc. maybe mix in other stir fry veggies and serve it on a bed of rice? I bought a flank steak whole and cut it into strips. I usually do that, then freeze the cut up strips. I may just buy some prawn shrimp and broil the two together. Flank steak ain't cheap. My motis operendi is to cut them up into strips and then freeze them.

I don't make flank steak all that often, but when I do, I score it, marinate it whole, then grill and slice. You could marinate them in lime juice, cumin, chili powder and Mexican oregano and make soft tacos. Or marinate in Italian dressing, grill or broil, slice and serve with a salad and Italian green beans.

I eat leftovers cold on a salad or in a wrap.

It's the third Wednesday of the month, so we're going to our favorite local seafood restaurant for their Sushi & Tunes night. They have a special sushi menu and live entertainment.

When I’m not using flank steak for stir-fries, I either grill and slice it or stuff, roll and roast it.
