After a long day off fighting the intense crowds and commotion at Ikea (all in the name of finding better lighting for our apartment), my husband decided to take over kitchen duties and prepare a quick steak dinner. Now we had eaten some Swedish meatballs at Ikea for lunch and I was quite full when dinner time came around and the meatballs were causing some disagreement in the tummy. As my husband began preparing the ingredients for this quick meal, I had to force myself to get hungry.
A couple of steaks thrown on our grill and seasoned with Montreal steak spice was just what we needed. If you don't know about Montreal steak spice, get on it. It adds a powerful flavor to meats and should ALWAYS be used when grilling steak. You can read about it here.
The steak was topped with sauteed mushrooms and was placed on a bed of arugula and shaved Parmesan. I had some grape tomatoes in the fridge and asked husband to throw those on the grill, too. He was not a fan, but hey, it's part of my culture. Instead of a traditional recipe, here is a little photo essay on last night's steak dinner.
