Happy Valentine’s Day! Cooking a nice steak dinner!
This Blog entry is about FOOD. Good Food! Food that’s good for you!
If you’re not into reading about a nice steak dinner, please move along.
It was a beautiful Sunday in the San Fernando Valley today. The weather was great! The first Sunday after football is always the hardest… but a beautiful day makes it easier.
Valentine’s Day is such a rip-off holiday. So, instead of going out and paying triple for dinner, I decided to cook a really nice holiday feast.
On the Menu: Teriyaki bone-in ribeye steaks, baked potato, steamed broccoli and carrots, green salad with ranch dressing, challah bread, red wine and a coke.
Defrosted a couple of bone-in ribeye steaks, prepped the potato, yam & vegetables and then made the salad. Timed it out perfectly and everything was done just right.
Nothing fancy, just a nice dinner at home.
Green salad with iceberg lettuce, celery, carrot and cheese.
Sauteed the red onions, marinaded the meat and pan cooked the steak. One steak cooked rare, one cooked medium rare. (leftovers for tomorrow: steak and eggs maybe?)
Baked potato and yam, coated with olive oil, salt & pepper and cooked wrapped in tin foil. Topped with a little butter, salt & pepper and I left the sour cream in the fridge…
Steamed carrots and broccoli (don’t overcook!) cooked to slightly crunchy.
Very happy with the final results! Better than most restaurants and a lot less expensive.
Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert. Happy Valentine’s Day!
p.s. The feast was appreciated.
