Marinade: 1 lemon (juiced) ¾ cup Aloha shoyu (soy sauce) 3 Tbsp. vegetable oil 2 ½ tsp. Worcestershire sauce 2 cloves garlic (grated) 1 Tbsp. Sambal Olek (prepared chili paste) 1 green onion (chopped) 2 sprigs dill weed ½ tsp. celery seeds
Mix all marinade ingredients in a large pan or dish. Place steak in and marinate for a minimum of 2 hours - overnight in refrigerator for best results. Grill steak over medium -medium high heat until your suitable temperature is achieved- approximately 5 minutes on each side will achieve a rare temperature. Take off from heat and let stand for approximately 5-8 minutes before slicing. This will allow the meat to relax and redistribute the juices back into the interior of the steak. Slice steak across the grain; preferably at a 45 degree bias cut.
Dad's Sunday Potatoes
2 large russet potatoes (or how many you wish) 4 Tbsp. salad oil Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and peel potatoes. Slice potatoes lengthwise at approximately ¼ of an inch. Heat oil in a large skillet to medium heat. Pat dry the potatoes with a paper towel until completely dry. Place the potatoes in the heated oil and let cook until each side is golden brown and you can poke a fork in with ease. Remove potatoes from skillet and drain on a paper towel. Season with salt and pepper immediately after removing heat. Serve with anything you wish.
Kona Orange Vinaigrette
2 cups Kona orange juice (freshly squeezed) ½ cup rice vinegar 2 shallots, minced 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard 1 tsp. ginger, grated 1 tsp. garlic, grated 1 cup extra virgin olive oil 1 ½ Tbsp. granulated sugar (to cut acidity) Salt and pepper to taste
In a non-reactive saucepan, bring the orange juice to a boil, bring down the heat to a medium and reduce the orange juice by 50 percent. When done, set aside and let it cool to room temperature.
