Shoe Leather Steak Night

Tonight I tried. I tried to prepare dinner at home for the kids. My husband went to choir rehearsal and I bought some steaks to cook a decent meal. On a normal week night we are rushed and due to a lack of planning we’ll end up driving by a fast food joint for dinner.

I have this gigantic fear of serving meat that isn’t quite done yet. After I cook the meat I attack it until I’m 100% sure it’s not still breathing. In doing so I let out any flavor (another issue I need to work on is seasoning) and it looks like a rabid animal got a hold of it by the time it hits the dinner table.

Back to tonight…for the kids I got a super thin sirloin and two thin T-bones for us. I think “thin” was my first mistake. I “seared” the THIN sirloins in a frying pan and then broiled them to make sure the insides were done.shoe leather6

They were done…

My husband tasted it when he got home and said, “mmm…you made jerky.”

I’m disappointed with my “jerky” but surprisingly the children loved it. Isaiah asked for more.

While eating my share of the shoe leather I did a little more research. I looked up cooking “thin T-bone steaks” on YouTube before going back into the kitchen. A couple of Gordon Ramsay’s videos later this is what I cooked up…

It looked more appealing. It was edible. It was actually really good.

Best part was…my husband liked it too 🙂
