Steak Through the Heart Bites


I like to do finger food at parties incase someone wants to nibble and not make a huge plate, plus it cuts down on the amount of waste. This dish worked out really well and was a huge hit. Sometimes you don’t need dishes to look like things, just a simple change of words in the title makes all the difference.

We also served our Jack Daniels Sauced Chicken Wings and Drumsticks, except we called them bat wings and body parts.

Steak Marinade:
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
1 garlic clove, minced
1 pound steak
salt and pepper

Combine all ingredients and let meat marinate in fridge overnight. Grill to desired doneness.


Dipping Sauce:
4 large sweet red peppers or 2 (12 ounce) jars, drained
¼ cup olive oil
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
2 anchovy fillets
2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme or ½ teaspoon dried thyme

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth with a little chunkiness left.


I served this with “ghostly” white garlic mashed potatoes.

  1. I hate seeing a big chunk of meat or plateful of food being wasted too....

    I'm about ready for some steak.
