Treadwell Bag Steak

Author Notes: My mother has been making this recipe for as long as I can remember. She got it from a family friend many years ago. It is reminiscent of what you would get at a Parisian steak frites restaurant. It's a crowd-pleaser.

One of the reasons I love this recipe is how quick and easy it is to prepare. I almost always have all the ingredients in the house, since they are fairly common. All the ingredients for the marinade go straight into the food processor so I don't have to spend time finely chopping by hand.

The recipe says to allow the steak to marinate overnight, but in a pinch I've marinated it for just 4 hours and it still turned out great. You can also make it ahead of time and freeze it.

When I'm about to grill or broil it I sometimes get the urge to pour some of the leftover marinade over the top of the steak while it cooks. However, I've found that I get a better result if I don't do that.

This steak goes great with asparagus or french fries.
