Nothing quite compares to a long day of the summer sun and swimming, followed by a deliciously grilled meal. I think summer is my favorite season just because of the food. I made these Sesame Asian Steak Skewers the other night for dinner, and we are having them again this week, because they were just that good. They were so easy to make and the marinade will have you drooling over this steak. The marinade makes all the difference.
Making the marinade
Making the marinade is simple and it only requires a few ingredients. It requires soy sauce, oil, honey, apple cider vinegar, water, green onions, minced garlic and that’s it!
If you are in a time crunch, Kroger has your back. They sell pre-made marinades that would taste just as good. My personal favorite is the Kroger Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce (I used the Kroger App that was specific to my location, which is Smith’s, to find the sauce before I drove all the way there. The app even tells you where you can find it in the store! Can you say time-saver?)
Sure enough! The marinade was right on aisle 6, just like the app said. Grocery shopping has never been so fast and painless. I may even bring my kids with me next time.
It’s all about that steak
Picking the right steak can be rough, but with my Smith’s App, I am able to see what steaks are on sale for the week, and suddenly picking the steak becomes simple. This week, the New York Strip Steak is on sale. With just a few clicks it’s added to my cart and I’m almost ready to check out. If you have never tried the deli at your Kroger store, you are missing out. I can always trust their meat to be high quality and safe.
Shopping with their weekly ad on the Smith’s app, helps me get the job done fast, and save money at the same time. Usually when I go grocery shopping, I just throw things in my cart that look good, but with the ability to make my own grocery list on the app, I know exactly what I need and it saves me extra trips to the grocery store.
These Asian Steak Skewers would go great with any cut of steak, but we recommend a strip steak or a sirloin steak. For the best flavor results, we also recommend cutting your steak into bite size pieces before marinating so the steak can soak up all that flavor.
SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE… YOU DESERVE IT
Every year I tell myself that life will slow down in the summer and every year, life seems to only speed up! With kids out of school, summer barbecues and swim days every week, all while trying to work and keep the house clean, my sanity and life is close to impossible most days. Whenever one of the sisters finds a shortcut or something that helps busy moms, we like to share it with each other!
Today we decided that we shouldn’t keep these shortcuts and time savers a secret anymore! We want to share them with you. Which brings up my new favorite life hack. the Smith’s App. The Smith’s App isn’t just another app on your phone that you have just in case, it is your go to app!
Grocery shopping can be done from your bed, or kitchen table as you feed your kids breakfast! And with Kroger’s Family of Stores app, you can pick up your groceries and be on your way to your next summer adventure.
Not only is ClickList a blessing, but you can put together recipes and shopping lists, look at coupons and sale items, order your prescriptions,view the weekly ad, and just about anything you need when it comes to groceries and goods.
If you haven’t downloaded the Kroger Family of Stores App… what are you waiting for? It’s completely free! Save yourself time, money, and stress just by downloading the app. I used the app for this recipe and got coupons, planned my weekday meals and snacks around sale items (which helped me save even more money) and it only took me a few clicks!
The app helps me find food that my family loves. Including side dishes which is always a struggle for me. The app tells you whats on sale or what coupons are available for the week which is super helpful when I am trying to plan ahead. Just looking at the ad or recent purchases this week, gave me dinner ideas.
With the app, not only do you get the ins on all the sale prices and discounts happening at your nearest Kroger Family of Stores, but you get money with your next purchase, right after downloading the app! Download a Kroger Family of Stores app now through August 1, 2018 and you can save $5 off your next $50 purchase with an App-exclusive digital coupon.
However, the $5 off $50 digital coupon will only be available to new app download users and the digital coupon will not be visible in the general coupon pool on Kroger Family of Stores website.
Utilizing the app also allows you to engage digitally and build your lists when it’s most convenient for you: at work, on the go, etc. Kroger offers you dozens of digital coupons worth hundreds of dollars in savings on the mobile app (over $400 worth).
Other in-store app benefits include: aisle locator, barcode scanner and so much more. What did I ever do before the Smith’s app? I knew where every item in the grocery store was and it’s sale price, all from the app. It made grocery shopping a breeze, and I made record time today!
Using the Kroger Family of Stores, I was able to locate the nearest Kroger store from me, Smith’s. From here I was able to see the weekly ad, find coupons and deals specific to my store, find specific items in my store, and create a shopping list all while using the app.
Kroger brings together all the time-saving and money-saving features in one seamless experience. It’s an invaluable tool for all customers to have when shopping at the Kroger Family of Stores.
