4th of July BBQ

So here's one of my favorite grill recipes for Mommy and Daddy:

Marinated Skirt Steak (from Alton Brown)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 large cloves garlic
1/4 cup lime juice
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
3 Tablespoons dark brown sugar
2 pounds skirt steak cut into 3 or 4 equal pieces

Put olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, lime juice, pepper flakes, cumin, and brown sugar in a blender or food processor and blend. Put steak in a large heavy duty Ziplock bag and pour marinade over it. Put in fridge for 1 hour. Take out and grill to your liking.

Spinach Salad (my own dish)
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 balsamic vinegar
1/3 cup sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 garlic clove minced
1 package raman noodles
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 bags organic baby spinach

Combine olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar, soy sauce, and garlic in a small bowl and stir well. Put aside this will be your dressing.  Smash dry raman noodles in package. Throw away seasoning mix that comes with the noodles we will not be using that. Heat a medium nonstick pan on the stovetop, do not add oil to pan, put smashed raman noodles, sliced almonds, and sesame seeds in the pan and toast until golden brown. Wash baby spinach and place in large salad bowl, pour dressing over the salad and toss well. Sprinkle toasted noodles, almonds and sesame seeds over the top and serve.
