Ok single men listen up! You know as well as I do that all men are genetically wired to barbecue. It’s just part of our DNA, so why fight it? Roll with it brothers and eat well at the same time! I am here to share with you the single greatest meal on earth EVER! Eat it alone if you must but I recommend pulling it out to impress your date. She and you will both thank me for this. 🙂
Meat. Specifically beef. Cow on the grill. We all love it, but when you top it off with grilled ‘shrooms and onions we’re approaching Heaven on Earth. Men, I think you’ll all agree with me there’s only one thing we’d rather have more, but for tonight let’s just talk about steak :-0
So here’s the recipe – it’s so damned simple any man can do this! First, head to your local supermarket and buy steak. Don’t skimp here gentlemen; you know you should never fool around when it comes to your meat. Go to the butcher counter and tell the dude on the other side you need a good cut of meat to put on the grill for you and your date. Trust him – he’s a professional. And a brother’s gonna steer you right.
Go to the produce section of the supermarket. Grab one big yellow onion and (2) 8 oz. packages of sliced mushrooms. So what if the sliced mushrooms cost a few pennies more than the unsliced ‘shrooms- isn’t that worth your time for someone else to scrub them and slice them for you? (Hint: answer yes here).
OK, now you’re home. Thinly slice the onion any way you wish: I prefer a mandolin slicer if you’ve got one, or you can use a knife – whatever. Put the sliced onions into your 5-quart stainless steel bowl. Then throw your sliced ‘shrooms in. Slather some Olive Oil, ground sea salt, and freshly ground pepper atop and toss the whole shebang until it is thoroughly coated. Transfer the mixture into your skillet and set it on the side burner on your grill. Using your non-metallic tongs sautee the mix to make the magic happen.
While the veggies are sauteeing, throw your meat on the grill. I’m gonna leave you to your own devices here: you’re a man and if you can’t grill a steak to perfection, I’m here to tell you that you suck. Sorry brother – make it work.
When the steaks are cooked to your’s and your date’s preferences (might I suggest medium rare?) set them onto your dinner plates and smother them in the ‘shrooms and onions. Serve with red wine and my most favorite hot sauce. Put on her favorite music genre, dim the lights, and the rest is up to you.
Gentlemen, if you can perfect this meal (not hard – trust me) your date will be most impressed. Treat your date to this meal at your nest with appropriate lighting and music and if you can’t seal the deal don’t blame me. Go forth and conquer!
