I was super happy to get to try out a few of Sobey’s great recipes for summer dishes. I did this a few years ago with their ice cream cake and it has become a family favourite, and the dish people always hope I will bring along!! 🙂
Sobey’s now has Sterling Silver premium AAA beef – this is the description of it, “Consisting of only the top 12% of all grain-fed cattle, every cut is carefully sourced and hand-selected for amazing quality. These unsurpassed cuts provide exceptional flavour and tenderness for unforgettable dining experiences” I went to pick up steak for the recipe I made and was really surprised about how low the prices were on the steak, and how yummy it all looked!
Sobeys Summer – Sirloin Flap with Tangy Herb Sauce – this is the beef recipe I chose to try out. I was a little worried about all the herbs, I had never even thought to attempt something like this with steak. It took just a few minutes to assemble and coat and we were ready to bbq! Ends up it’s pure genius to cover your steak in herbs, it cooks up nicely and it ends up tasting amazingly fresh – like a summer bbq should taste! It wasn’t overpowering at all, you could still taste your steak in all it’s glory! My store was out of sirlon flap so I just chose 2 other types of sterling silver steaks and both were a hit. One was a thicker steak and I got 4 thinner ones, which would make for an amazing sandwich! If you’re looking for a new, and refreshing way too bbq try this recipe out for sure! It was a big hit with the whole family, even my 6 year old. Something you’d definitely be served in a restaurant and love, and how fun is it to make those types of dishes at home! 🙂
Sobeys Summer – Rice Noodles with Spicy Peanut Sauce – I made this for dinner on a crazy hectic night – I used a precooked chicken from the deli at Sobey’s, so prep work was minimal. I have to admit, I had never used rice noodles before….and now I wonder, why not? All you do is pour boiling water over them – perfect for a hot day when you don’t want to heat up the house! While the noodles “cooked” I chopped up the veggies and made the sauce – we aren’t big carrot fans so I substituted for red peppers. Once again, a quick and easy recipe, virtually foolproof and the results were again restaurant worthy. My husband ended up eating 2 huge bowls of the salad, and stealing most of the leftovers for his lunch the next day! 🙂 This is a recipe I’ll be making often from now on, easier and quicker than takeout and it was super cheap to make too! You can really adjust it too, if you want it more or less spicy etc. which is also great!
I couldn’t be happier with my choices from their recipes – both are super simple to make, good fresh ingredients and neither has very many expensive ingredients or need special equipment or skills! Just looking at the picture of this salad makes me want to make it again right away! Perfect for this crazy heat wave most of Canada is having too!
