Dinner from Sunday.

Corn on the Cob and Baby Bok Choy ready for dinner!

I haven't been talking much about my CSA box this year and I am not sure why. I guess the main reason is that by the time I get home after picking it up it is pretty much dark and I don't have a whole bunch of light left. I did get one picture I took of this weeks delivery but it was kinda small. I did complain about it and they have promised to rectify it. Still the quality, variety and the flavor of the produce is beyond belief.

Cilantro, avocado, scallion, green pepper, carrots, baby bok choy, corn, lettuce, cabbage and Asian Spinach!

This brings me to Sunday night's dinner. I haven't been very organized about planning meals and it's been too hot to eat soup very much but I did take a couple of steaks out to thaw. I knew I wanted corn and I had seen a post of Jaden's site The Steamy Kitchen that had stir fried baby bok choy and had book marked that. Dinner came together nicely despite a football game and my husband blaring in the background!

We take grass fed Chuck Roast (Whole Foods) and cut them into steaks and freeze them individually. Almost looks like a New York Strip doesn't it?

I didn't get any pictures of the Stir Fried Baby Bok Choy but you can find the recipe here and I highly recommend it. It was delicious!!!

As Always...

Happy Entertaining!!!

I was gonna say...New York strips.

Love to know how you prepared the faux NY Strip (very clever use of the Chuck Roast!) are you able to cook the steak "bare" or do you think it needs a sauce or rub or marinade.

ps I love using the Chuck Roast for stew, though cutting around seams and gristle not so fun.

Good idea to cut up into steaks. You should see my freezer. I've foodsaved everything into individual portions. It's a little nuts.

I've yet to try making baby bok choy. I keep seeing it...will have to give it a go.

That looks like a delicious meal - great corn photo! I used to do the same thing with salmon....this reminds me I need to get back to Whole Foods soon!

Hey Peter-Tricked ya!!!

Hey Ben-The texture was way better than NY Strips. The corn and bok choy were delicious as well!

Hi Carrie-We didn't cook these ones bare. We added a rub to the them. Have marinated them too. Not for flavor but to tenderize it a bit.

Hey Lori-This saves us a ton of maney and makes Whole Foods practical for all of our meat!

Thanks Jenn-Salmon would be great too! You have one near you now too!

I love the idea of cutting down the large cut of meat. We will do that! You are soooo lucky to still get a CSA! Ours was over in October. I still remember our gorgeous CSA in CA... Aww, memories.

We buy large cuts of meat to do that, too! Sounds absolutely delicious, Judy.
