The recipe called for 3 Zucchini, but I know my family, so we double the recipe from the start!
First I sliced the squash using my mandolin –
Then I tossed it with the salt, placed it in my colander over the sink, and waited…
While waiting I prepped the steak tips…I marinate them in a bag with Olive oil, Salt, pepper, garlic and Worcestershire sauce.That sits in the fridge for about an hour to set.
Then I prepped the cheese sauce!
I couldn’t find the pre-shredded Gruyere, so I grabbed a block of it and shredded it myself
Here is where I made an almost fatal error!
The shredded cheese was for the top of the casserole – But I melted it in by accident because I was so excited to be using such awesome cheese!
Stir stir stir!
Pepper added to the Zucchini before the pour
Pour the sauce over the whole dish.
I then added the cheese on top that wasn’t mistakenly put in the sauce!
Baked at 400 for 30 minutes, and it was AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS!!!
A few things – The original recipe claims prep time is 10 minutes – I disagree…But I did also shred my own cheese. Slicing the Zucchini alone took some time. Other than that – I loved this recipe and I will be making it again!!!
Here is the original recipe!
Let me know if you try it and what you think!!
See you tomorrow for the next recipe!!!
