What Should I Cook?

By

Well, folks, Valentine’s Day is almost here again and we’ve decided that we don’t like going out to a restaurant anymore to celebrate the day.

There are too many other sweethearts clogging up our favorite places on that evening. And, ahem, we don’t like to wait.

Besides, we like cooking something perfect at home. Just the way we like it.

Here’s what we did last year. Steak and lobster. You can’t go wrong with that. And it was fabulous. But I’m wanting to change it up at least slightly. You know, keep it fresh.

So what should I cook? Here are the parameters:

  1. It must involve meat. And I don’t mean pork or poultry. Beef.
  2. I have to be able to cook it in my humble kitchen. I do not have a convection oven or restaurant-grade gadgets. Just the usual tools, plus a smoker.
  3. It can’t be too “out there.” We’re simple folk.

Got any cool ideas? Send ‘em my way!!
