Chris's friend Tim is out from Ontario visiting, and to herald the occasion, they decided to make an enormous breakfast. My lovely roommate, helped by her wonderful sister and adoring boyfriend, set herself to breaking their nightime fast with copious amounts of meat, french toast, and fruit - with sides of silliness, indie music and smiles. It was the perfect thing to wake up to.
Friendship. There is nothing like it.
4 canned chipotle limes in sauce
1 lime, juiced
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. cilantro, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tbs. olive oil
1 steak (take your pick, but definitely go for one with good marbling throughout)
salt and pepper to taste
1. Blend first seven ingredients. Pour into a plastic bag; add steak. Marinade for about four hours.
2. Heat BBQ to high heat (you want a grill that will cook as fast as possible without scorching the surface - if you have a hot BBQ, bring down the temp a bit). Remove steak, place on it. Baste with remaining marinade in the bag (do this frequently). Always err on the side of caution concerning 'doneness' - I don't know how you like your steak, and chances are you know how long to grill it for youself - however, you should rest it under tinfoil for about 5 minutes afterwards, so always be aware that it will cook a bit after you remove it.
3. Pray. Eat. Swat away flies (and moochers) because you are outside at a BBQ and your food is so dang tasty. Enjoy.
