This post is for all the meat lovers out there or should I suggest to please the man of the house (I don’t want that to sound chauvinistic). There is nothing more All American than steak & potatoes.
To digress first, I was wondering about both the origin of steak and also assumed that readers might like a little more insight into the doneness of steaks. Did you know that people domesticated cattle as far back as 8000 years ago to make it easier to get meat? This next link to The Food Timeline provides both information on doneness and gives links to the origin of a number of other foods that I thought you might find useful.
So I begin our meal with a steak appetizer? What you say, there is no such thing as a steak appetizer. I guess carpaccio would count but I am going with these heartier Steak Fingers with Gravy from The Pioneer Woman.
Lest you think this post was going to be all dinner, who does not love a Philly Cheesesteak created here by my friend at Center Cut Cook. (Check out her many great recipes)
Moving into the main dish, allow me to share a variety of main courses. I present to you Hawaiian Marinated Flank Steak from The Clever Carrot.
Sticking with the marinates, try this Brazillain Grilled Flank Steak from My Man’s Belly (see, it wasn’t me being chauvinistic).
Now getting into the partner of the steak, the potato. The first offering is a healthy side dish of Roasted Potatoes from Me and Three (and counting).
If you are looking for a fancier side, then try these Duchess Potatoes from The Endless Meal. Enjoy!
