Juicy Steak and Loaded Potato

Sometimes a gal just wants some meat and potatoes, ya know? I love me a juicy steak every now and again. Mmmmm...tonight I made a steak and a sweet potato and cheesy cauliflower. Yep, all just for me. :) The steak was so good. I just added a little McCormick Grill Mates, which I totally love. You should really try it the next time you have steak. It is that good!! I usually like my steaks rare. The redder the better. I like it still mooing. Ha! I know some of you may be vegetarians and so I am sorry if I am offending you, but I am all carnivore. :)

The sweet potato was so yummy! You know how they make them at Outback or Texas Roadhouse or Lone Star Steakhouse, where they are loaded. Yep, you know the ones, butter and brown sugar. OMG!!! So incredibly good. And they are so easy to make at home. I just poke holes in the potato with a fork (all over) and then wrap the potato in a paper towel and put it in the microwave for about 6 minutes and then good! They are so good and good for you too!! have you ever tried them at home??? If not, you so totally have to. Tomorrow really, you should go out and buy some sweet potatoes and make them tomorrow night for dinner. Trust me, your family will think you are the bestest!!

What is your favorite cut of steak and how do you like yours cooked?


  1. "Me love steak!" Can you hear this being spoken in Cookie Monster's voice? Cuz, that's how much I LOVE steak! My favorite is Fi-let Mig-non and it's got to be medium rare...nice and pink in the middle. I had steak at Longhorn Steakhouse last week and it was delicious! Thanks for the share Nina.

  2. Ohhh, that looks good. Kevin and are going out on a date tomorrow, and I might have him take me to a steak place.

    For steak, I like filet mignon, well done. I don't get it often because of the price. I like mine with sauteed mushrooms on top. I can taste it right now. :)

    I've never been a big sweet potato fan, but I might have to try one again.

    Texas Roadhouse is a good place. Ours is always so crowded though, so we rarely go.

    Have a good weekend!
