Before we get into a discussion about tomorrow and all of Cupid’s glory, I have to tell you something. Something really, really cool. You are not going to believe it until you see it. I was featured on Oprah’s website! Yes, ME!!! You don’t believe me?! Follow this link to my Slow Cooker Leek and Potato Soup on

Whoot! There it is! How cool is that! I am thrilled! Can you tell? ;-D

Okay, let me gain back my composure. Ahem…. Okay. Let’s discuss tomorrow and Chili-Lime Steak.

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Whether you agree with the Holiday, or not, it’s for real and it looks like it’s not going away any time soon.

So. How are you going to share the love? Presents, flowers, dinner? What’s on the menu? I made you steak! Do you like steak??

I’m only looking forward to the red roses. And dinner. Keep the cheap champagne away from me, and allow me to eat all those chocolates in the gift box. By.My.Self.

But, before I attack the chocolates, I am going to inhale this juicy Chili-Lime Steak with Roasted Vegetables! I can hardly wait!

We often buy steak from a butcher. I ask him to cut it here, trim it there, slice it, and he is happy to do it. I, on the other hand, am not too excited about butchering anything. For this particular dish, I had him cut an eye of round steak into thin slices because my Mister is not too crazy about meat, but if we must have it, then he likes it thin and juicy. If he could have it his way, we would be eating spaghetti tomorrow night.

But you can use this chili-lime rub on any cut that you desire. I use it on flank steak, t-bone, sirloin… chicken icon smile Chili Lime Steak with Roasted Vegetables Anything goes. It’s all good with me.

For the roasted vegetables, you can use any root vegetables that your heart desires. I really like roasted carrots and onions. Like, really. They are delicious, and go great with the chili lime steak.

    Congratulations on your Oprah feature!! How exciting! That’s going to keep you on Cloud 9 for a while and should! This steak looks delicious! I haven’t purchased round steak in a long time, but was having a craving for it last week. Looks like I’ll be buying it now. Great meal! Happy Valentine’s Day!

    First I have to say it again because you deserve it ” Congrats” on the feature, Kate! That is wonderful news and I wish you many more features on O site.
    Now about the darling would also rather have spaghetti with garlic sauce and tons of cheese…he is not really a steak guy but like you said mine likes it just the way you presented here-sizzling hot, thin and juicy. Great V-Day dinner idea, and yummy pics!

    Bravo on your fame with Oprah. I wish you lots more!

    You know, I’ll take that steak over flowers any day. Definitely over chocolate, but you already knew that.

    How exciting Kate! Congratulations on featuring in…..Wow! I bet you did cart wheels and a little dance without anyone watching….hehehe…….go girl! :-)
    I am not so fond of Valentines Day. Far too much hooplah and terribly overrated.

    Love the Chili-Lime rub. :-)

    I can never have enough meat marinades! Though mine are thick and juicy. Love this one Kate.

    How funny–my spouse would rather eat spaghetti than steak too! That whole ‘steak and a BJ’ thing . . . well we’re having red and white heart-shaped cheese filled ravioli tomorrow night. Still working on the sauce for it . . . I did an alfredo pesto with our Christmas holiday shaped ravioli, so I’m thinking of using a pack of slow-roasted tomatoes.

    Congrats on the feature–that’s got to feel just amazing. Way to go, Kate!
