Show Him Steak


This one will take some concentration. After a good night's rest, you should rise a little earlier than your party goers to get this one right. Choose a good steak, Rib Eye or a T-Bone. We need some good fat to make sure it melts in your mouth. Salt, Pepper, Seasoning salt, garlic powder, onion powder, olive oil, butter. 


A cast iron skillet would be so awesome for this. If you have it, use it. If not a good pan will do. Coat with olive oil and let it warm to high heat while you season up the room temperature meat. When the oil moves back and forth in the pan like water when you pick it up, the oil is hot enough. Throw that meat in there! It should sizzle! 


Rare, medium rare, medium well....well done? Well after the meat is seared on both sides, turn down the heat. The steak should cook another 4-8 minutes depending on how thick the steak is and how you prefer it. This is trial and error young cooks. It is better to take it out early and see red and adjust from there. There is no coming back from a dry gray steak! 


Once your guests wake up from their slumber due to the aromas in the kitchen, be ready to cut and plate accordingly. They are not getting a whole steak honey! Too much else on the plate to overindulge! Those potatoes...well check out my dad's home fries recipe!
