Actually, for me, a good steak needs only salt and ground black pepper and a good 3-minute sear on both sides. Perfection

We're doing smoked ribs, grilled potatoes and a green salad. For dessert, I'm going to make individual cobblers - blackberry for me and peach for DH.

Whenever I travel I like to leave my kids with enough to pick on to last a few days...

I made chicken parmigiana, sausage and peppers, spaghetti, garlic bread and a huge tossed salad. Giant fruit salad, too.

There is still plenty of corn bread and chocolate bread pudding around. Still lots of rabbit ettouffe, too.

I need inspiration - so far I'm inspired to lie about my age and see if Vera will adopt me!

Kadesma....my mouth is watering! I WAS excited about my steaks until I read your post......

And GotGarlic I agree with you when you have a top quality cut of steak but this time I just bought regular chuck steaks, but I bought them because they had beautiful marbling this time, so they should be good and tender. I don't want to drown the flavor, but add a little spin and help with the tenderizing

Dee - if I want to do something different to steaks I will marinate in equal parts of teriyaki, pineapple juice, and white wine. The Pineapple juice will act as a tenderizer too.

Another thing I have done on occasion (it won't help with tenderizing) is brush on some BBQ sauce right at grilling time. Certainly changes up things.

You are about to inspire to make steaks tonight!!!! There's nothing better than a good ol' steak and baked potato - or yukon gold potato packets on the grill!!!!

Ah. I don't think I've made that cut before, so I'm glad KE came through for you

It certainly was. I have to have a tapering joint as dw and eldest son like well done meat. Youngest and myself like our meat much more pink. This worked very well today. The gravy was lovely, had used red wine to cook the beef and this translated into the juices and I mixed this with an apple gravy, I made last week. DW even complimented me on the gravy (wow wee)
