A quick three-minute fry in some hot oil and we are ready to eat. When we...

Surf N Turf Steak and Lobster

One of the most combined proteins is known as Surf N Turf, now this combo can include many variables of protein, but for this, we are doing Picahna and Lobster. When lobster goes on sale my wife quickly tosses them into her cart and leaves the beef option to me.

Roasted Garlic Chimichurri NY Strip Steaks

Chimichurri alone is one of the freshest and enjoyable sauces I love to enhance my steak eating experience.

The recipe typically calls for minced garlic but this is where I like to have fun with my cooks, so I decided to roast some garlic and add it….
