Tupperware Tuesday: Maple & Soy-Glazed Steak

Tupperware Tuesday, a real look at the food I make each week. No fancy cameras, no lightbox contraption, no perfect angles. Just what’s for lunch.


Adapted from Cooking Light, March 2010.

I made the steak pretty much as directed except I used tri-tip, which was on sale at Fresh & Easy, and significantly increased the amount of Sriracha. I also made extra marinade to toss with whole wheat thin spaghetti. Since I had left over baby spinach, I sandwiched leaves between the steak and spaghetti, drizzling extra sauce over to finish. The heat from the microwave wilted the spinach just enough to take away the raw taste.

I loved the sauce. I definitely saved this recipe just for the sauce.


I eat: Mastro’s Steakhouse [4]

Mom deserves the best. And like I’ve said before, Mastro’s is THE BEST! So a little more than a year after I first took my parents to Mastro’s, we went back to celebrate the best mom in the whole wide world, my mom ♥

Our meal started out with the usual bread service as we waited for our entrees. My mom and dad decided to share the Chef’s Cut Rib-eye and Chilean Sea Bass.

Henry and I also went with the Chilean Sea Bass since I loved it so much last time. As for our steak, we wanted to switch it up. We ordered the off-the-menu special, Australian Wagyu Rib-eye “Tomahawk” (22oz). I didn’t know how it could possibly top the Chef’s Cut Rib-Eye, but I was really hoping it would especially since the Tomahawk was priced at $96!!


Well, even though the steak was excellent, I really couldn’t tell the difference between the Tomahawk and the Chef’s Cut (it was no more juicy or tender) so I can’t justify spending the extra $45.

We usually order sides of Lobster Mashed Potatoes and Sauteed Spinach, but this time we ordered Alaskan King Crab Black Truffle Gnocchi and Roasted Brussels Sprouts.


Come on, Crab + Truffle + Gnocchi???? I’m drooling just thinking about it right now. And I’m totally a sucker for brussels sprouts… I love roasting them with a little drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

I think Henry and I have tried most of the desserts offered so we went with an old favorite: Mastro’s Signature Warm Butter Cake Ala Mode. You really can’t go wrong with this one!
