The steak is cut into bite-size pieces and seasoned with a dry rub of ground black pepper, cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt.
Pat says it’s best to season the meat overnight for better flavor absorption. He also suggests sprinkling the dry rub over the meat rather than dipping the meat into the mixture.
“Don’t contaminate the rub so you can keep it, place it in a jar with a tight lid on, and store it in your cupboard to use again another time,” he says.
Uncontaminated dry rubs can stay in the shelf for about six months.
The seasoned sirloin steak is cooked along with sliced bell peppers for 7 to 8 minutes per side.
As for the dipping sauce, Gina mixed together spoonfuls of low-fat Greek yogurt with honey, lime juice, cayenne pepper, fresh dill, salt, and pepper.
FAMILY, FOOD, AND FUN. The great thing about these dishes, says Pat, is that you can easily serve them at your house parties.
“You can even have a moment there with your kids, letting them help out putting the shrimps in skewers, and you’re mixing up the sauces all while dad gets the grill on,” adds Gina.
The Neelys are all about bringing the family together through great food, which they cheerfully showcase in the new season of their show.
Catch Down Home With The Neelys season 4 beginning August 7 at 8:00 p.m. on the Food Network.
