Three Days of Vitamix - Day 2

Well, sometimes you just totally screw up a meal.
I'm serious.  A TOTAL screw up.
I decided to try to make one of my favorite dishes from a restaurant in Birmingham, AL

The Bright Star

The recipe is their Greek Steak.
so, I decided to try and re-create it.
A FAIL of epic proportions...

Here is what I did.
I used these ingredients.  (Should not have used the butter and not sure why I did!)

I dumped it all in there.

and got this.  I tasted it, and it tasted just like I wanted.

 At The Bright Star they use really thin rib eyes.

Because I used that butter, I needed to melt it more.

then I put it in a baggie and marinated for 2 hours

After over cooking, this is what it looked like.  It was really bland.  So I wouldn't recommend making this!  haha!
The peppers were however very good.
now for what did work!

Raspberry Sorbet
use these ingredients

Dump a bag of frozen raspberries into the blender

Add 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt

 use your little plunger and mix on high for about 2 minutes

 I added mint, but you don't have to.

Add a little whipped cream and enjoy!

This was really yummy.
As I'm enjoying mine though, I asked W if he liked his.  His comment?
I don't really like mint.
I have been married to this man for 33 years.
How did I not know this?

have a great day y'all!
