Simple Summer Suppers: #kidsinthekitchen

I join forces with my good friend Carrie @YoungLivingOilLady each
week to bring you this family friendly recipe link up. It is our desire to
encourage families to cook and eat together. Meals cooked at home
are healthier, and time spent together in the kitchen is good for families!
We use Cooking 101 as part of our family homeschool. I’m teaching the boys to put together healthy family meals, life skills, and budgeting,as well as teaching them tips for cooking in the kitchen. We encourage real food vs. processed food.

Let’s bring the family, back to the table!

Simple Supper ingredients:

London Broil Steak 
green peppers 
white onions 
(you can add mushrooms, raw carrots or whatever veggies your family enjoys- just keep it simple) 
spices to taste: garlic, blackened seasonings 

Keep summer cooking simple by using very basic few ingredients, the fresher, the better. 
Get the kids involved: 
  • tenderize the meat with a large fork 
  • slice onions and peppers into smaller pieces with a table knife (with supervision of course)
  • sprinkle on seasonings (pour them into a separate bowl and let kids add them from there so they won't use more than you need)  

Grill or broil steak according to your preference & slice thin on a diagonal 
(under the broiler at 500 degrees - cook each side for 5 - 6 minutes for rare steak) 

Cook onions and peppers in pan with a Tbs. of coconut oil - salt & pepper to taste 

Serve fresh slices of watermelon on the side! 

I am sorry - I don't have a picture of the finished results. It was so good, we jumped in & it was GONE before I realized I hadn't grabbed the camera. Delicious!
