As you know, we are carnivores. Tonight I prepared something I’ve made before: Oh My Steak!  It’s a recipe I found on Pinterest, from a pin by Lauren at Lauren’s Latest.  I also made baked potatoes, the way my hubby taught me.

Ingredients for Baked Taters:

3 baking taters

3 egg whites

kosher salt

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAPreheat oven to 350 degrees F.  After scrubbing your potatoes under cool water, poke holes in them.  I typically poke two holes on each “side” and one on each “end” of the potato.  Then, give your tater a bath in the egg white.  Make sure you completely get the potato wet.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAh!  Okay, into the hot oven for two hours.  Now for the steaks:

Ingredients for Steaks:

3 ribeye steaks

Morton Season-All Seasoned Salt (for hubby’s steak and mine, too)

McCormick Grill-Mates Montreal Steak Seasoning (for Daniel’s steak)

butter…..lots of butter

Take the steaks out of the fridge about 20 minutes before you’re going to prepare them; season according to taste.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAGrab a cast iron skillet.  I needed my cast iron skillet plus another skillet because my steaks were so big!  Lauren uses olive oil, but I start with butter; in each pan, put about 2 tbsp. of butter and set the skillets on burners that are turned to medium-high.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFlip the steaks and add some butter to each steak, maybe a couple of tablespoons.  Set the skillets into the same oven where your taters are baking; mine fit on a rack below the potatoes.  Let them bake for about 6 minutes.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATake the steaks out and let them rest for 5 minutes before diving in.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYum!
