In The Kitchen: Family Brunchin’ At Home

I know the weekend is the perfect time to have a wonderful brunch. With my weekend work schedule, I seldom get to enjoy an unlimited mimosa fete. As much as I love dining out socially, I also love to host things at home for family and friends. Today we are hosting a family brunch and I am going to share the recipe for my delicious skillet potatoes, and what else I made for the fam.

I came up with this recipe when I first cut meat out of my diet and I was tired of eating salads all the time. If you have any other great potato recipes share them below! We also had the usual breakfast suspects on hand: bacon, sausages, and scrambled eggs with cheese. I also made some strip steak to go alongside the waffles I will tell you about in a second. Steak was chosen because everyone is tired of chicken at the moment, and they wanted something new. Strip Steak Recipe for Brunch First things first, we clean all our meat before cooking with vinegar and lime. So please make sure you are cleaning all of your meat thoroughly before preparing. I also seasoned and marinated this steak overnight. Season to your taste. I used seasoned salt, cumin, cayenne, garlic, black pepper, sazon, paprika and chili powder. Just like the potatoes, I used olive oil and an onion to get started. Another skillet with a cover will be needed here as well.

Essentially what this means is let it softly fry and cook in its own juices and the oil until all the pink is gone. If you are into medium rare and anything like that, I can’t advise you. We are Belizean, everything will be WELL DONE. Once the steak is browned on all sides, add some water from the bowl you marinated the meat in, and cover to cook until tender.
