How to Boil Water: Rib-eyes with Mushrooms

Growing up I never liked steaks. But when I was pregnant with Addison, I craved steak and potatoes. So now I'm trying to branch out and attempt more steak cooking because that like (I wouldn't go as far as to say love) of steaks has never gone away. So I've been attempting to learn how to cook steaks. And this one was just another one of my attempts.

Dinner Brought To You By: The Taste of Home Cookbook

Here's What You Need:
8 green onions, sliced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 beef ribeye steaks (8 ounces each)
1 cup sliced fresh mushroom

Here's What You Do:
In a small bowl, combine the onions, garlic, broth, vinegar, thyme and pepper. Place steaks in a large resealable plastic bag; add half of the marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

Drain and discard marinade from steaks. Broil 4-6 inches from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145 degrees, medium, 160 degrees, well-done, 170 degrees).

Meanwhile, place the remaining marinade in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 1 minute. Stir in the mushrooms. Serve with steaks.










I still have some learning to do when it comes to making steaks. But I'm getting better. Overall it wasn't bad. But I have to say that the stressful thing about learning to make steaks is that they are expensive and I hate learning how to make them and if it doesn't go well then I feel like I waste money. But I'm getting better so I feel like I'm not really wasting money anymore. I still haven't figured out how to make them nice and tender though. Like I said I'm still learning. 

Along with this meal is a favorite of ours: roasted asparagus. So here's your bonus recipe:

1 pound asparagus
olive oil
salt & pepper

Trim the ends of the asparagus, put on a baking sheet, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-15 minutes. And voila! 


Delicious! I'm split about the steak still but you should definitely try the asparagus. Yum!
