Ready for Steak This Weekend?

By

If you’re looking to cook something a little different this weekend, try this flavorful boneless ribeye steak recipe from Chef Marcus Samuelsson of Good Morning America.

It would seriously be a good morning if you served this up with some eggs and fixins the next day.  Just sayin’.

Try this paprika-y, garlicky seasoning and tell me what you think. This just might become your favorite new way to cook a steak!

Steak Teaser

By

This poor guy is getting teased by a steak on a string. Sad. Just sad.

This may qualify as “cruel and unusual punishment.” LOL.

But, judging from how well-done that steak was, they may have done him a favor by just teasing him with it.

You know what I mean? Give it a little juice, guys – it enhances the flavor!

And, really, let him eat it please . . . he works hard for our country!

Springtime in Steakland

By

This weekend, the sun teased us where we live and gave us some gorgeous, spring-like weather.

Here’s what we chose to do with it. . .

Uh, huh. We grilled out. It turned into this. . .

And soon after, the weather yelled, “Psyche! Just kidding!” Then it turned back into nasty winter.

I’m SO glad we took advantage of it when we had the chance. I just hate sending my hubby out to grill in the snow. I’ll do it, but I just hate it. ;)

Here’s to more springy weather. It puts me in a fabulous mood – and keeps me well fed!

Coffee-Crusted Beef Tenderloin

By

Sandra Lee is famous for knowing what she’s doing in the kitchen. That’s why I defer to her and anyone else with an authority in that area. I need to follow directions in the kitchen.

If I don’t, the results are disastrous.

So…this recipe for coffee-crusted beef tenderloin appeared on Good Morning America and it sounds absolutely divine. Get your beef tenderloin here for optimal results.

You won’t be sorry.

Thank you, Sandra Lee, for saving my kitchen from an explosion. I owe ya one.

Let me know how YOU enjoy this!

Be Still My Heart-Shaped Steak

By

Many of us will be celebrating Valentine’s Day this weekend – even though the actual date is Monday. Why? Because Mondays are hectic and soccer practice is not romantic.

So today’s post is dedicated to all you lovers out there who will be celebrating/drooling this weekend . . . steak lovers, that is!

I give you: HEART-SHAPED STEAKS.

Celebrating With Steak? You’re Not Alone

By

So, according to a recent survey done by the Cattlemen’s Beef Promotion and Research Board, 62% of us want BEEF! for Valentine’s Day.

Self-serving? Maybe. But most definitely true.

Here’s more of what that survey found:

When you’re cooking up romance for your Valentine’s Day dinner, the numbers indicate you should pony up for the tiny but tender filet mignon. The Cattlemen’s survey says 53 percent of Americans associate this cut with candelight dinners, and 50 percent with saying “I love you” over a meal.

Still suffering a little bit from that big holiday spend? The less expensive ribeye got 35 percent of the vote, with a tasty T-bone grabbing 32 percent of American tastebuds for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner. And you can always cook it at home to save some cash, and up the romance.

Seriously, go here if you haven’t already and order some steaks. Apparently, your sweetie is expecting it.

And you don’t want to disappoint.

Valentine’s Day Secret? Steak!

By

If your sweetie is anything like mine, a steak dinner will go a long way toward saying, “I love you” this Valentine’s Day. You know that old saying about the way to a man’s heart, right?  Well, it works for women also.

Trust me.

I subscribe to the “Say It With Food” theory. Create a beautiful meal and someone will feel loved. It’s cause and effect. And the effect is just right for Valentine’s Day.

Check out this pepper-crusted filet mignon recipe and try it out on Feb. 14th. There will be no question how you feel. It’s even a Martha Stewart recipe – so it has to be good.

You still have time to get the most tender, beautiful filets delivered to you by V-Day from here. Believe me, THIS is good stuff.

Oh, and tell me about your successful steak venture. I like to live through others sometimes.

Bon appetit!
