Diner Inspired Sandwich- Grilled Ribeye with some Sauteed Onions

This is a nice, fun, and somewhat quick meal which can be tailored in many ways to suit one’s own liking. In this particular instance, I kept it in similar fashion to a version I had tried a few months back at a retro 50’s themed diner.

On to the fun part: Start off with a nice boneless ribeye or two (or more depending on how many you are feeding), season to your liking- I used some cracked peppercorns, black-garlic salt, and some rosemary. Toss on the grill and cook to your liking (I did mine to about medium-rare as they will cook a little after you pull em off).

For the onions, I sliced up a nice large yellow sweet onion. Threw it in a skillet of already heated up olive oil, threw in some pepper to taste, and tossed in a little Worcestershire sauce. Cook til golden brown. Throw it all together on a nice roll, toss in a side of homemade broccoslaw and some pickles and bam…you have a complete meal. Quick, easy, tasty…what more could you want?

Mahi Mahi and Tacos

So a friend of mine through one of the cooking pages I am a part of on facebook happens to have a grapefruit tree- and well I love fresh right off the tree grapefruit. So from her picking them, putting them in a box, they came in 2 days.

It came down to planning a meal around the usage of some really fresh grapefruit…so what better then cooking up some fish- and I went with Mahi-mahi.

Easy enough, I basted the filets with some oil, sprinkled on some black-garlic salt, threw on a few slices of fresh cut grapefruit, some red onion slices and some rosemary branches. I then took this, wrapped in parchment and tossed on the grill.

While that was happening, I took a mango, peeled and diced it. Similarily, I diced up a few apricots. I threw both of these in a pan which was already heated with some oil, diced garlic clove, and some sweet onion. I let this mixture cook until the fruit was nice and soft. In a bowl, I had diced up a few tomatoes (cold from refrigeration) and when the fruit mix was to my liking I tossed it in with the tomato to make my version of a mango-apricot salsa.

From there, I just cut up some radishes, orange peppers, and spinach leaves. When the fish was done on the grill, I cut it into smaller strips and then it was time to piece together the tacos and chow down.
