Complements for Steak

No, I don’t mean, “Hello, steak, you’re looking delicious today.” That’s a compliment.

Complements for Steak

I mean things that complement a steak – like a luscious steak butter melting on top or a mushroom garnish.

One of my favorite things to do is grill up a bunch of filet mignons and serve them with different steak butters – like roasted garlic, tomato chipotle or Tuscan herb flavors.

Everyone can choose their favorite taste!

Filet with Finishing Salt

Another delicious complement is a nice finishing salt.

Now, when my dad taught me how to grill a steak, he never said anything about finishing salts. But sprinkling on a salt flavored with rosemary or garlic gives your steak an edge that kicks your grillmaster status up a notch or two.

Filet Mignon with Sauce

Then, there’s the almighty steak sauce. A perfectly blended steak sauce brings out the richness in your steaks and makes sure it’s a steak you’ll remember.

These are my favorite complements for steak. What are yours?

Yummy Homemade Steak Sauce

If you’re like me, now’s the time you really get going on your grilling and experimenting.

Warm weather always makes me want to try new things with meats – especially steaks.

One of the ways to mix it up is a good sauce. Sauce can change everything.

So here’s a great recipe for a delicious homemade steak sauce. Try it on your next creation and let me know what you think!

The summer’s heating up and the food is getting G-O-O-D!!!

Nicki Minaj – Bad Steak Taste?

Musical sensation – and new “American Idol” judge Nicki Minaj visited a steakhouse in Hollywood last night and faux pasd all over the place.

Or did she? You tell me.

The Nickster sent someone out to fetch her some A.1. Steaksauce for her tasty steak.

In a nice restaurant. In Hollywood. California.

Is that tacky? Or is it just having her steak the way she wants it?

I, personally, do not care at all how anyone eats their steak. You enjoy that bad boy the way you like, I say.

But, chefs are notoriously offended by the addition of outside steak sauces.

So . . .  did she fall down in the etiquette department or do you subscribe to the “live and let live” notion?

Nicki, just know that if you had enjoyed that steak at home no one would be the wiser.

Just sayin.
