Do you love steak? Grilled steak is a delicious dinner that is quick and easy to prepare.

You are going to LOVE this easy grilled steak recipe thanks to a handy new product I just discovered at my local Trader Joe’s. Think fresh herbs, flash-frozen in pre-measured cubes. Store them in your freezer and you have fresh herbs 24/7, anytime you want!! (If you don’t have Trader Joe’s nearby, Whole Foods also carries Dorot.)

Fresh herbs

Have you seen those little red boxes of Dorot in the freezer section of your grocery stores yet? I don’t know how I missed these for so long. Talk about a time saver!!

This is the easiest way to cook with fresh herbs anytime with no mess, and no spoilage. Nothing is more frustrating than buying fresh basil or other fresh herbs, only to have most of them go bad in the refrigerator before you can use them up!

With Dorot, they keep in your freezer so you have them on-hand anytime you need them.

Dorot cubes are so easy to use! They are kept in pre-measured cubes. All you have to do is pop the cubes into a bowl. Each cube equals one teaspoon of fresh herbs or garlic.

See those cubes in the handy tray? The herb cubes pop out easily so you can use as much, or as little as you want for a recipe. They are not only perfect for sauces, but think about all of the easy ways to use these fresh herbs!

Dorot comes in lots of fresh flavors:

  • basil
  • cilantro
  • garlic
  • parsley
  • onion
  • ginger

Steak marinating with garlic and basil

I used the fresh basil and garlic to both marinate my steak, and to make a delicious sauce to drizzle on top. How would you use Dorot?

Add two cubes of basil to one cube garlic. I cooked these in my microwave for 15 seconds to melt the herbs. I spread this onto each side of my steak.
