Steaks with Avocado Butter and Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1) clean up is easier since we have fewer pans
2) my husband does the grilling so I don't have to cook
3)...well there is no 3. Really it is just about Dave doing the cooking and no dishes.
Every once in a while, I'll plan a steak for Dave and then, even if he does suspect the grilling is all about him doing the cooking, he'll be distracted by a steak, his favorite meal.
The avocado butter and the red pepper sauce make this special. The avocado butter melts over the top and adds a buttery richness while the warm red pepper sauce adds a sweet note and lightens it up a little. This is one steak dinner I can have all summer...as long as Dave is doing the cooking.
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
Mash the avocado and butter with a fork until combined. Mix in salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
Roasted Red Pepper Sauce
1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers packed in water
1/2 cup Catalina dressing
In a blender, combine roasted red peppers and Catalina dressing until smooth. Transfer to a small saucepan, heat through over low heat.
