Bistecca (Beef Steak)

This is a sirloin steak meal that will make your mouth water!
For mild flavored steak (enough steaks for your family), rub lemon juice, olive oil, fresh ground pepper and light sprinkle of salt. A small amount of Old bay is good, too. 
For more flavorful steak, add to the other marinating ingredients white wine vinegar (not much), rosemary and basil.
Rub on marinating ingredients on both sides and place in refrigerator for 1 hour. 
Meanwhile peel and cut enough potatoes for 2 each person in your family (for instance, there are 4 people in your family; cut and peel 8-10 potatoes). Chop potatoes in small pieces.
Heat 1/8 cup lard in a skillet, then add potatoes. Generously sprinkle rosemary, oregano, salt and pepper over top of cooking potatoes—enough to bring flavor. Sauté until lightly browned. Put in oven-safe covered dish that has been greased with butter. Bake at 400 degrees until tender and slightly crispy. Once potatoes are done, keep warm on top of stove while you fix your steak.
While potatoes bake, fix a good Italian salad. 
Rub bowl with an opened garlic clove then put into the bowl:
~2 heads lettuce, shredded
~5 oz. fresh spinach, chopped
~2 sliced tomatoes
~1 cup sliced black olives
~1 thinly sliced bell pepper (red, orange or green or a little of each color)
~1/2 thinly sliced red onion
Toss all of these together, then stir in 1 cup Parmesan cheese, a tablespoon olive oil and tablespoon red wine vinegar.
Put steak on broiler or a grill. Cook to your taste: rare, medium rare, medium or done.
Grape juice, berry juice, chilled water with lemon or chilled punch is good with this meal.
