What’s Cookin’ – Steak in Pesto Marinade

We recently watched a show on the Food Network called “The Best Thing I Ever Ate: for Breakfast.”

Guy Fieri went to Matt’s Big Breakfast in Phoenix, Arizona, where his favorite breakfast is a pork rib chop marinated in pesto, pan fried, then served with hash browns and eggs.

The pesto marinade is what intrigued me so we tried beef rib steaks marinated for about 3 hours in Buitoni Pesto with Basil.

Of course, you can make your own pesto, but the prepared pesto is delicious, comes in a 7 oz. container for around $5 to $6 and I found it in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. I used half the container on two steaks.

We also steamed broccoli, which is good with everything. The steaks were flavorful and tender. I think the pesto marinade would be good for just about any type of meat. We’ll definitely try it on pork chops and chicken.

We were out of red wine but had a chilled bottle of Jacob’s Creek Riesling, which was really good. The pesto marinade is a great thing, worth repeating and passing along.
