Welcome everybody to the June edition of the Crazy Ingredient Challenge! What is the Crazy Ingredient Challenge? The challenge is to create a recipe with two unique ingredients that are not traditionally cooked together. We’ve had some fun combinations in the past and I just love seeing what the ingredients turn out to be. Spearheaded by the lovely Dawn at Spatula’s On Parade, this is one group of talented chef’s who come up with these recipes each month. Want to know what June’s challenge is? Well, hold on to your hats…. It’s pineapple and rosemary!!!
I cheated and used canned pineapple. I know, I know….I wanted to use crushed and time constraints kept me from running to the store. We’re not growing pineapple this year or I would have used picked a fresh one.
Grilled Steaks with Pineapple Rosemary Red Onions
|Prep time||5 minutes|
|Cook time||15 minutes|
|Total time||20 minutes|
|Meal type||Main Dish|
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1/2 Large red onion (sliced thin)
- 1 tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary (stem removed)
- 3/4 cups canned crushed pineapple
- 2 top sirloin steaks (1)
- Mrs. Dash Steak Seasoning to taste
Incredible!! I had no idea how this would turn out. I love rosemary with my steak and I also enjoy topping my steak with the onions. Adding the brown sugar and pineapple gave it a sweetness that was savory at the same time. I should have made a double batch since hubby and I were basically fighting over who gets more.
