Oh, you should see Denver right about now! It’s so hazy that it looks like a wicked hot and humid day in the South but it’s really all the smoke rolling in from a wildfire in Canada of all places! It’s so bad that I can’t even see across the street, I closed my windows and turned on my A/C even though it’s only 70 degrees outside! Ugh! I hope the Advil that I took kicks in quick and knocks out the headache caused by all the smoke in the air! So weird!
In my attempt to eat more red meat (Doctor’s orders) and now that I have my new grill, I have been on dry rub kick. We had dinner a few weeks back up at Willow Creek (great place to eat, BTW) in Evergreen, CO and I ate a strip steak with a coffee rub. It was delicious so I decided that I would figure out how to make my own. So here it goes and I like that it has a spicy kick to it! Perfect for a steak on the grill as it gets a little crispy on the outside and keeps everything moist on the inside. So good if I do say so myself!
I put together this sandwich with some of the leftovers from my tri-tip the other night. I love making something and then being able to eat it all week! I had my first, “lame” (too much rain this year), harvest from my garden this weekend so I thought that I would grill up some veges and make a steak sandwich for lunch (I was sta-ving)! With the addition of some Naan bread (my new favorite bread cause it’s great grilled) and a little mayo, I had a beautiful lunch! Dry rubs are so versatile that they can make even leftovers taste brilliant!
Sorry for the short posts as of late… It’s summer and I can’t decide where the time goes! Enjoy!

I really like the combo of spices in that rub. Sounds delicious. And I love grilled veggies. Our Farmer’s market yesterday was still pretty lean on Colorado veggies. And still no melons.

I was wondering about the farmers market! I don’t think melons show up til August!

One my goodness…what a great looking sandwich. I’m green with envy as I had a container of yogurt for lunch. 🙂
