Cooking RR Style

That's Rachel Ray to you folks.

So I'm trying to gradual work my way through my Rachel Ray: 365 No Repeats cookbook. Everything I've cooked so far has been pretty yummy. So the other night I tried another recipe and the hubby was very pleased with the result.

Sliced Grilled Steak on Blue Cheese Biscuits

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 tbsp grill seasoning, such a Mc Cormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning

1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce


Freshly ground pepper

3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil

2 pounds flank steak

1 8-ounce package buttermilk biscuit mix, such as Jiffy brand

1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles

1 vine-ripe tomato

1 small bunch of water watercress, trimmed and cleaned

4 tbsp sour cream

  1. Preheat the oven to 450.

  2. Preheat a grill pan or outdoor gril to high heat

  3. Mix together the garlic, grill seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper. Whisk in the extra-virgin olive oil. Pour into a glass dish or sealable plastic bag. Add the flank steak and coat it evenly in the marinade. Let it stand for 10 minutes.

  4. While the steak is marinating, prepare the biscuits. Place the biscuit mix in a bowl, add the blue cheese crumbles, and mix with a fork to distribute. Add water, according to the package directions. Once combined, dump the biscuit mix out on a cutting board (I added flour to the board before hand so it wouldn't stick). Using your fingertips, press out the mix into a 1-inch-thick square. Divide the square with a knife into 4 squares. Arrange the biscuits on a foil-lined cookie sheet and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the biscuits are cooked through and the bottoms are golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool.

  5. Grill the flank steak for 6 to 7 minutes on each side or to your preferred doneness. Remove the flank steak from the grill and let the juices redistribute before slicing.

  6. Thinly slice the tomato and coarsely chop the watercress; reserve.

  7. To serve, thinly slice the rested meat on an angle, cutting against the grain. To make easy work of the slicing, use a sharp knife. Split each of the four biscuits in half. Arrange a slice or two of tomato on the bottom of each biscuit. Season the tomatoes with salt and pepper. Top the tomatoes with some of the sliced steak. Top that with a dollop of sour cream and a little of the chopped watercress. Set the biscuit top in place or slightly to the side. Eat up!

First I didn't have any flank steak so I just used regular old steak. I also didn't use the watercress or sourcream. But it still tasted very yummy!
