It’s Friday! YAY!!!!!!
Boy, has this been a week!
After today, we only have one more week of school down here. As anyone with kids in school knows, the last couple of weeks are CRAZY! I’ve been so busy that my Moment of Zen this week was being able to sit down for a couple of hours while my car was being serviced at the dealership. Kind of pathetic, eh?
Thankfully, we were all able to settle in together for dinner last night. I was short on time, but tried out this new recipe because it promised dinner in a flash. It really was quick and easy, plus the fact that it tasted so good didn’t hurt either!
I started by whisking together a quick marinade for some top sirloin that I’d cut into chunks. I mixed together some soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, chili-garlic sauce, and brown sugar. Then, once that was mixed up, the meat went right into the bowl for a bit.
As the meat was marinating, I opened up a bag of broccoli slaw, dumped it into a bowl, and sliced up a few green onions to add to the slaw. In another bowl, I whisked together the dressing for my slaw, which brought in more rice vinegar, sesame oil, brown sugar, and garlic chili sauce, along with some fresh grated ginger too.
There was a lot of bowl action going on!
Aaron fired up the grill, and while he was setting up shop, I took the meat out of the marinade and threaded it onto a few metal skewers.
He threw the kebobs on the grill and I tossed my slaw with the dressing.
About ten minutes later, we were ready to eat! The meat didn’t hang out in that marinade long, but it was packed with flavor. Paired with that deliciously different broccoli slaw, it made for a perfect crazy almost-summer weeknight dinner!
