Grilled Steak with Mushroom Wine Sauce and Crab Stuffed Potatoes

Treated the family to the typical home cooked meal, but this time I took pictures to share my "recipes" with you guys!
The pictures will show you the ingredients.

Grilled Steak:
Just so you know,  I buy my thyme fresh and leave it in a dish on the counter to dry.
Also at the end added some dried parsley.
I usually don't buy steak sauce but because all my seasonings are still being shipped from Dubai I bought a local sauce.
Instead, or in addition to a steak sauce you can use soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, or goya marinade.
I marinated the steak for about 6 hours in the fridge then Hubby grilled it to medium rare perfection!

Twice Baked Crab Potatoes:
I always feel like potatoes take forever to bake so I always bake them long before I am ready to prepare dinner.
Bake until soft then leave to cool.
Cut around the top of the potatoes as you will see in the pictures and carefully use a spoon to scoop out the inside.
Mix the potatoes with butter, milk, salt, sour cream(if you have it), crab and cheese.  (I normally break the crab up into pieces first.
Mix it all together then stuff it back into the potato skin, sprinkle a little cheese on top and put back in the oven to reheat.  Done!

Mushroom Wine Sauce:

Put a stick of butter in a pan on medium heat.
Once it has melted add all but water and flour.
Sautee, add a little red wine then add some flour for thickening.
When it gets really thick add water slowly and keep stirring.  Do this until it has a nice creamy consistency. It's that simple and so yummy!
