Jamie Oliver Inspired Steak Dressing

I watched Jamie Oliver cook up an amazing dressing for some steak. I didn't get all of the recipes only the technique but I finally was able to recreate the steak dressing. And my God I'm good~☆

Steak Dressing
In a bowl add and mix together
a hand full of chopped parsley
1/2 squeezed lemon
1 teaspoon of mint
1 tablespoon chopped garlic
1 teaspoon oregano
pinch of salt
2 tablespooon of red wine vinegar
You can change the amounts of ingredients, i usually add more parsley because..I admit I LOVE parsley. I'll also usually add more red wine vinegar.

1. Marinate the steak with rosemary and salt.

2. Cook the steak on medium high in olive oil. When heated add steak and don't move it for 5mins then turn over. Cook for another 3-4mins for medium rare.

3. Spread dressing on cutting board and add the cooked steak on top. Cut the steak diagonally, and cover the steak with the dressing. Or just place to dressing over the steak and serve :)

This is Halloween

Love Halloween though we don't celebrate it like those in America. I love the decorations and how it is close to christmas. I like the idea of 'The Nightmare Before Christmas" mixing both decorations together. Though it is too early here to buy Christmas decorations I did buy a few Halloween ones and ones I made myself.

Bought these glass decorations in Fukuoka, add water and some of them float :)
Made my own decoration, simple but brings the autumn colour near the entrance of my apartment.
A cute trick or treat bag with cookies inside

Halloween Decorations around my place :) bought from the 100 yen store= $2 store :P

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween~!
