Updated Ranchy Steaks

I posted over here a few months ago about the Ranch Marinated Steaks. They were good. We’ve even made it with chicken.

But sometimes, you just feel the need to do it again, DIFFERENTLY.

So Saturday, we decided to invite some friends over and make these again. And this time, I mixed it up a little AND took pictures (sort of)!

Here’s what you need:

These were BEAUTIFUL steaks and I couldn’t resist.
Window shopping for beef is highly discouraged!

4 decent size boneless ribeye (luckily, I had some and then Publix had them on sale for $7.99 a lb – sad that is a sales price, huh?)
1 bag of smoked dried tomatoes
1 large onion, cut in half and then sliced
6 to 8 mini sweet peppers (more or less), cut in quarters
2 packages dry ranch powder dressing
2/3 cup canola oil
generous dash of cayenne pepper

Dump the ranch dressing and cayenne pepper into a shoebox (IF you want to be like ME). Add the oil and whisk to combine.

I love the shoebox!

Add veggies, mix to coat well. Add the steaks, pushing veggies aside so they are sitting underneath everything.

Slice these in half since they are small

So glad I picked up at 99 cents a bag!

Cover with a shower cap and let marinate in the fridge for several hours (I started mine at 2pm and cooked around 7).

Heat grill to medium high heat.

Place veggies on a large sheet of foil and close up. Grill veggies alongside steaks on grill (make sure the veggies get HOT to get rid of any ‘bacteria’). I like my steak medium, Hubby likes his well ::shudder:: and our friends like theirs medium rare so we will be all over the grill at times like this!

*And of course, because we had friends over, I did NOT get a picture of the finished project … sorry!

There you go … serve it up and enjoy!

  4. Thank YOU for hosting Creative Mondays!


  5. Ever since Hubby did it, I've been following along with it … it's so much better than a bowl or ziploc!


  6. These look great. I am buying me a shoebox. Would it be terribly gross to just get one out of the closet…haha.


  7. awww heck, I won't tell anyone! 🙂 I'm all about using what you have!
