Romantic Steak

By

Why is a steak dinner considered such a romantic meal?

Perhaps it’s because it fuels the heart which, when in the presence of a love interest, tends to beat non-stop.

Or, maybe it’s because it’s such a beloved, special dinner. I know I ALWAYS feel special when I eat a steak.

Whatever the case, Valentine’s Day dinner is NOT complete without a steak! It’s a must-have!

To celebrate this upcoming day of love, check out these Top 10 Valentine’s Day Recipes – everything from Herb-Crusted Filet Mignon to Lobster Tails to a homemade Steak Sauce!

Treat your sweetie – and yourself – to a steak this Friday and you won’t go wrong!

Today, class, we are going to focus on that beautiful cut we call the Top Sirloin.

Why?

Okay, you know the answer, but in case you’re running a little slow today – it’s D. :)

No one can predict the future . . . or can they?

The editors of Eatocracy are making some food predictions for 2014 that are raising some eyebrows.

Okay, maybe just one brow – my left one.

Things like breakfast for dinner? Cool.

Rice making a comeback? Yes, sir.

But beef in the raw? Well, I’ve never really been a tartare kinda gal.

The beef part I’m onboard with.

Read on to see all of their predictions for a tasty new year.

I’m looking forward to MOST of it!

Resolving to Eat Lean Steaks in the New Year?

By

The New Year is always a good time to reevaluate things we’re doing and making shifts where needed.

So many of us need to watch our waistlines. So how can we do that as steak lovers?

Lean cuts of steak!

Some of my faves are these steaks and beef certified by the American Heart Association to be extra lean.

There are Top Sirloin steaks, steak tips, ground beef patties and more. A great start.

So, you’ve got some lean beef. Now how do you cook it?

Here are some fantastic ideas from Chef Richard Chamberlain – Great Grilling With Lean Beef.

He’s got Mushroom Merlot Burgers for you. And Dijon-Wine Steak Kabobs.

Delish!

Try these out and let’s all have a healthier 2014!
