Angus New York Grilled Strip Steak with Hatch Chili Seasoning

For the first of many #TryMeTuseday I tried a new steak with a special store seasoning blend. A 2021 goal for this bog was to post something useful , interesting and tasty weekly. So now every Tuesday I am going to cook and share with you all an ingredient, product that is new to me. On Thursdays it will be #TastyThursday which showcases any recipes I’ve redone from others or made up on my own..


Normally when I do food shopping I stay away from pre-seasoned meat or seafood because I like to create my own seasoning blend.

Recently I picked up a Beef Choice Angus New York Grilled Strip Steak with Hatch Chili Seasoning on it. The steak came from the store with the dry rub seasoning on it from WALMART.. If you see it try it out for yourself. They also serve the same seasoning on fajita bee stripes to.

I’m not sure what’s it in exactly (SECRET I’m told) but the seasoning added a really good, almost unexpected flavor. A little heat, a little sweetness, a lot going on in it. Really good job Walmart!

Steak Cooking Tips for a Medium Rare!

Before cooking, be sure the steak at room temperature so it can cook as evenly as possible.

I sear the steaks in a smoking hot pan with salted butter and oil, about 4 minutes per side.

It will need a 10 minute rest before you can even cut into it. Please rest the steak, it is tired.

This will give you the most perfectly juicy medium-rare steak if that is what you are looking for.

I served mine with it with garlic and oil sautéed steamed Broccoli and Beans ..

chef tip! I prefer mine at medium rare.. To learn more about steak temperatures check out this article below from THERMO PRO

A twist on good steak and a summer succotash

Sometimes you want to follow a recipe and sometimes you just end up doing it your way. Inspired by recipe I read in Real Simple magazine . Over the years I’ve collected tons of recipes from magazines, cut them out like coupons and save them a big binder. I save online recipes in files in my computer so they are like a searchable digital cookbook.

Highly recommend having a system to keep them organized and together whenever you need some cooking inspiration.

In true fashion, I changed up the ingredients based on what I had on hand at home in my freezer and fridge. Inspiration is all that you need to make great food at home.

The result a grilled Flat Iron steak with a succotash of charred yellow squash , corn and pancetta mixed together in olive oil. Super simple and tasty.

Check out the original recipe below. How would you change it up?
