Steak: Marinade each side in mixture of olive oil, garlic, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper and lemon juice for 1-2 hours. Cook on grill to your preferred done-ness. We like medium rare to medium. My older brother likes it lightly browned on both sides! heh
Potatoes: Peel potatoes, slice in half and then slice longways about five times to make steak fries. Melt 1 tbsp butter, and 2 tbsp veggie oil in pan and sear the outsides while preheating oven to 350.
Move to a cookie sheet and drizzle with a tbsp of olive oil. Bake 10-15 minutes.
Slice mushrooms and onion. Sautée on low heat with remaining butter and oil.
My husband could tell I was in a rush, as the mushrooms were too close together. Give 'em some room!
Enjoy! It was all quite yummy. I kept thanking my husband for grilling the steaks, even though I found out how easy it is to do. The flavor of the smoke is just so intense, I feel as if he has done something amazing. And, with the flavor of that steak, he has. At one point, I had laid a fry on my steak, and I picked it up and ate it...the flavor of the steak had run into it, and it was DELICIOUS. Wow. I love this game.
