Grilled Steak with green olive, caper butter
Grilled steak for two is what you eat when the kids are out and you are having a date night!
I am a very involved mom, right, hovering over the kiddos, caring for their every need. ( I know, I need therapy!) I like having them around, so I was not at all prepared for this stage of our lives. Teenage stage, yes, despite me, the kiddos now have a social life! Parties and outings and sleepovers … hate those!) and sports. So all of a sudden the hubster and I are alone…… often…… too often! Sadly, we work so hard at the moment, that we are often too tired to go out ( I know, sad isn’t it?)
So, this Grilled Steak for Two is for those nights. No dishes, just me, the hubster and a pan full of food. Why is this grilled steak so special? The green olive and caper butter and then just to take you over the edge, deep-fried capers! ( idea from Anel Potgieter)
Where I got the idea for the butter from, heaven only knows, but it works. Served with a simple tomato salad, this grilled steak will definitely be our date night treat from now on.
This T-bone steak was about 5 cm thick and it was free-range, matured and most importantly ready at room-temperature. You can also use rib-eye, rump or fillet. I prefer a thick cut steak, because I like steak to be grilled to perfection on the outside, but beautifully rare in the middle.
Here are some tips to get that restaurant perfection on your steak!
