Croque-Monsieur Sandwich

Croque-Monsieur Sandwich

Every so often you just have to enjoy a delicious sandwich. I think there is undoubtedly nothing better than a French staple grilled cheese sandwich. Also, better known as Croque-Monsieur Sandwich. In translation, it means Gentlemen’s Crunch. My favourite way to eat a croque-madame is…

Broiled Flank Steak

Delicious Broiled Flank Steak! How do you like it, rare, medium-rare or well done?

I am medium rare to a well-done type of person… or at least somewhere in between.

I desperately wanted to grill this one the other day or at least smoke it.

Well, the continuous rain kept me from doing it, so the next best thing was grilling it under the broiler.

Broiled Flank Steak

The fragrant spices were perfect, and it tasted really tasty.

You know Flank Steak could be a bit chewy or tough, but I think it depends on where you buy your meat, as well as how old it was.

The flank makes a mean fajita, and it’s also an excellent choice for bibimbap, stir-fries, or even Philly cheesesteak.

It is just so delicious that I could eat it every other day.

Broiled Flank Steak

I got to say that this method of cooking a steak is popularly called London Broil.

Tougher pieces of meat, commonly, flank or top round steak, are left to marinate overnight.

Then you should be broiled under high heat and served by thinly slicing the meat across the grain.

Broiled Flank Steak

I typically served it low carb for my family. Well, my kids had bread, of course. We are carb lovers after all.

However, my lovely husband and I enjoyed it with some oven-roasted ranch cauliflower cooked in steak dripping.

The other dish was sauteed cabbage in garlic Alfredo sauce, which was perfect. Needless to say, we inhaled this delicious meal.

If you follow Low-Carb Diet this meat is perfect. You can combine it with cabbage like I served my air-fryer ribs or cauliflower, maybe a bowl of greens.

Broiled Flank Steak
Yield: Serves 4 to 6

Broiled Flank Steak

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Marinating Beef: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours 20 minutes

Tasty and easy recipe for Broiled Flank Steak

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 to 2 pounds Flank Steak

For the marinade:

  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Juice Lime juice, Vinegar, or similar acid for tenderizing the meat
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Cloves Garlic grated or pressed in a garlic press
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon per side Grill/Barbecue Spices

Instructions

  1. Coat the flank steak with marinade: Place the steak in a shallow dish, like a 9×13-inch baking dish. Whisk together all the marinade ingredients and pour over the steak. Rub the marinade into the steak and flip the steak once or twice in the dish to coat.
  2. Marinate for about 3 hours (it can marinate overnight in the fridge, covered). Cover the dish and place the steak in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Turn the steak occasionally maybe after minutes. If you leave it overnight try to flip after a couple of hours. 
  3. Heat the broiler and prepare the pan: Set your broiler to its highest setting. Place an oven rack a few inches below the broiler element.
  4. Drizzle the pan with oil and place the steak on.
  5. Remove the steak from the marinade, shake off the excess, and place it in the middle of the broiler pan. Place the pan it under the broiler. Cook for 7-10 minutes per side. This all depends on your taste; rare, medium rare or well done.
  6. The steak is done when the edges are a bit charred and crispy, and you see some dark searing on the top. Using your meat thermometer, check the temperature in the thickest part with an instant-read thermometer: 115F to 120F for a rare steak, 120F to 125F for a medium-rare steak, and 140F to 145F for medium-well steak.
  7. Note that If additional cooking is needed, cook for another minute or two for every 10 degrees needed; transfer the steak to the oven if it’s becoming too crisp on the edges.
  8. This is a very important part Transfer the steak to a cutting board and allow it to rest for at least 5 minutes.
  9. Slice the steak into very thin slices using a sharp knife, cutting against the grain. Transfer the slices to a serving platter, then pour the juices from the pan and cutting board over the meat and toss to coat.

Notes

Grilled Flank Steak: Instead of broiling, you can also grill flank steak over very high heat on a gas or charcoal grill. The cooking times are the same.

You may marinate this from 3 hours to overnight. The Flank steak takes marinates very well so it will tenderize.

Pizza Rolls Recipe with Toast.

This Toast Pizza Roll makes one amazing party food. It is one extraordinary and easy finger food that most people, especially kids love.

My family loves watching football as well as other sports, so we make a small party with delicious finger foods when we watch it. 

As a result, this pizza was born after I was searching for easy finger foods. I cannot claim full credit for creating this idea, but I used my own method.

In a way brainstormed how I will make this my own. 

Pizza Rolls Recipe with Toast

We all see recipes all over the web, then there are glossy magazines full of recipes, as well as tv shows. However, I always try to recreate it and make my own version with ingredients that I have in my fridge or pantry. 

With that being said, that’s why I constantly encourage you to use what you have or like. Just with this recipe, I know that many people do not consume pork.

I am one of those people that didn’t grow up with pepperoni. We had other types of hard salami. That’s why I said you can find something else instead to use in this recipe.

Author Sandra | Sandra’s Easy Cooking

Ingredients

  • 12 Toast Slices
  • 2 tablespoon Unsalted Butter divided
  • 1 1/2 Italian Cheese Blend or just mozzarella
  • 6-8 Slices Large Pepperoni turkey pepperoni if you prefer
  • 6-8 Slices Large Genoa Salami any cold cut salami on hand
  • 4-6 Slices Ham smoked chicken if you’re not eating ham
  • 1-2 tbsp Marinara Sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon Dried Italian Herb Mix
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder not with salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400F
  2. Take the toast out of the bag and place onto a large plastic film (wrap)
  3. Melt unsalted butter and brush on about 1 tablespoon of melted butter on all the toasts. Just a few strokes especially around the edges of the toast to connect better. 

  4. Connect the toast by placing a 1/4 on the each on each other. As seen on the pic. Take the rolling pin and flatten the toast completely from one end to the other and all sides.
  5. Add half of the shredded cheese, then place cold cut salami. You may use one or more, like me. You can even make it without any meat just use more cheese.
  6. On the salami evenly spread marinara sauce, then add the rest of the cheese.
  7. Using plastic wrap as a guide, roll the toast and wrap the whole toast roll with the plastic film or a wrap.
  8. Place the Toast Pizza Roll on the baking sheet. You may line it with parchment pepper or silicon mat for easier cleanup. Take the plastic wrap off.
  9. Add Italian herb mix to the melted butter, mix then brush all over the roll. If you need to use more butter, just melt some more.
  10. Bake for 18 minutes at 400F, then turn the broiler ON and bake under the broiler until golden brown, less than a minute.

Recipe Notes

Baking time wary on the type of oven you have. Check the roll around 15 minutes of baking just to make sure. You may use any type of salami or cheese. I loved using Italian blend because it got many different types of cheese, however, I made it before with cheddar, and sometimes with mozzarella only.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

You all probably heard about Low Carb KETO Bread, so I just made my version of the same bread.

When carboholic decide to join the low carb club and cannot live without a slice of bread. That would be me. I just had to clean up my act and start the most strict form of carb cleanse because I felt like I was out of control. 

Have you heard of Keto Bread? I am almost certain that you all probably heard about it, so I just made my version of the same bread.

You guys know that I was baking a homemade bread almost every single day. If not bread than some kind of rolls, focaccia or flatbread.

I am one of those people that would eat heartily bread with pasta. Yup! Guilty as charged… but that was it! It was a time for me to change.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

Well, I am entering my fourth week and I feel freaking fantastic. I lost lots of inches, a nice chunk of weight for a beginner, not too much like some people, but it is going slow and steady which I like the most.

My sleep and energy level drastically improved, I no longer snore, I have far fewer cramps and no headaches. Overall, so far so good!

I know we all have different successes and even failures, some see amazing results in a shorter period of time and for some of us takes time. That’s okay. We are all different and unique.

What can I say? I have never felt better, however, yes, I missed bread the most so I made my own. We tried to experiment for a week with it, and I think this is it. I absolutely love this version.

Keto Bread- Easy and Delicious Low Carb Bread

The first one that I made was too eggy and buttery, so I dropped to six-room temp eggs, added ghee instead of coconut oil, and used a bit of sour cream to make it rise up a bit more.

My family wanted to support me so they join Keto Fun as well. So now, I need one fridge just for bacon and eggs because they literally ate over the weekend my week supply of both.

Also, they sincerely love this bread as well and it was gone for lunch. Like, seriously?! I could eat this bread all week long. LE SIGH!
