Sun-Bird Seasoning - Mongolian Beef Rub

Has getting back into the back-to-school routine thrown off your dinner plans?  Perhaps you are running from one activity to the next?  I know my weeks have been flying by between soccer and Fall baseball and a few other things thrown in... and, let's not forget homework and practicing trumpet or flutophone (recorder for those of us who had to learn it a long time ago).   Just thinking of all that makes me feel like throwing my hands up in the air sometimes and crying "uncle"!

Luckily, I have a few simple dinners that I can go to for those busy nights... and often the busiest nights are leftover nights. 

As part of the Sun-Bird Seasonings blogger advocate program, I received a few packets of their Asian inspired seasonings.  Rather than do the obvious and make stir-fry, I decided to add a bit of oil to the seasoning and rub it on a London broil.

The Mongolian Beef seasoning intrigued me because it had an almost sweet but spicy scent to it.  Mixing it with about 1/2 cup of olive oil to create a thick liquid mixture.  Brush it on both sides of the steak. 

It's been a bit cool and rainy, so I opted to broil the meat - about 8 minutes on one side and 7 on the other side.  With London broil, you do not want to overcook it... it will become tough and unpleasant to eat.  Trust me... just don't do it.

This is such a quick and easy meal, you will have it on the table within about 30-35 minutes!  My Husband and I really enjoyed the subtle kick that the Sun-Bird Mongilian Beef seasoning added to the meat.  I even made the mashed potatoes from scratch - using my pressure cooker!  Add a tossed salad and you've got a homemade, healthy meal.  Yes, it is possible to put together a nice meal, even on a busy night.  You just need the right ingredients and a plan.
