Cinnamon Steak Skewers with Asparagus and Arugula Salad 

We were honored to have US Wellness Meats approach us with being part of their featured chef program. We really respect the US Wellness Meats company, and of course we immediately agreed to become one of their featured chefs.

For our featured chef recipe, we decided to make some mouth-watering summer steak skewers with an interesting flavor twist. We marinated the US Wellness Minute Steaks in a cinnamon spiced marinade. We combined the flavors of cinnamon, curry, and ginger to give this dish a warm and slightly tangy flavor. Surprisingly the warm, sweet, and slightly spicy flavors of cinnamon and curry complimented the steak beautifully. It enhanced the flavor, without overpowering the meat.

We served the steaks with a simple summer salad, full of fresh flavors. This dish quickly became one of our favorite steak recipes so far. Simple, fresh, and perfect for summer.
