Grilled Steak with Garlic Yogurt Marinade


  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup chopped thyme
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. paprika
  • 1 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4 beef steaks, 4-to-6-ounces each
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise

In small bowl, mix yogurt, parsley, lemon juice, paprika, garlic and salt. Divide mixture in half. Place steaks and half the mixture in a zip-top plastic bag; turn to coat. Seal bag; marinate in refrigerator for 1 hour or overnight. Stir mayo into remaining mixture; cover and refrigerate. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Grill steaks over medium heat for 7 to 10 minutes per side, depending on thickness, for medium-rare. Serve with reserved sauce.

Broccoli Supreme


  • 2 lbs. fresh broccoli
  • Crème Fraîche
  • ⅔ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

Crème Fraîche

  • ½ cup whipping cream
  • ½ cup sour cream

Remove and discard large leaves and tough ends of stalks from broccoli. Cut away tops, and coarsely chop. Peel and coarsely chop stems.

Cook broccoli in boiling, salted water to cover 8 minutes or until crisp-tender; drain.

Process cooked broccoli and Crème Fraîche in a food processor or blender until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.

Stir together broccoli mixture, cheese, and next 4 ingredients. Pour mixture into a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish. Dot with butter.

Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Serve casserole immediately.

Crème Fraîche: Whisk together whipping cream and sour cream until blended. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

Makes 8 servings

The garlic yogurt marinade was incredible! We do not have steak often, but this is an excellent way to prepare it.

The broccoli supreme was…odd. Sort of like a broccoli soup really. It had excellent flavor, but was not really what I was expecting. As it turns out, it’s not really a side dish all on it’s own. You’ll be seeing it again later, it took me awhile, but I did discover what it was meant for!
