Steak and Potatoes
A couple weeks ago, we sat down to a nice light pasta and veggie dish.  Mark turns to me and tells me "This is girl dish".  I kind of look at him weird, as if to say "Did you seriously just say that?"
It's not really that it's a girl dish per se (especially since at one point he asked for more pasta nights), but more that we hadn't had a good Man's dish in awhile.
To make up for that, I made this simple Steak and Potatoes. A true manly mans dish.
(it would appear I deleted the photo, so sorry)
2 small steaks, your choice of cut
Wildtree's Basil Pesto Grapeseed Oil
Wildtree's Rancher Rub
4 medium potatoes
Garlic Pepper Seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Rub about 1-2tsp Rancher Steak Rub into each steak. Making sure to cover both sides. Set aside.
Chop potatoes into bite sized pieces. In a large bowl, toss with 1/4 cup Grapeseed Oil and Garlic Pepper Seasoning to taste.  Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.  Cook for 10-20 minutes until potatoes are soft and starting to brown around edges.
Heat 1TBS Grapeseed Oil in  a large skillet over medium heat. Once oil is hot, add steaks.  Cook on both sides, until your desired "done"ness.  We went medium well - just a slight bit of pink on the inside.
Add some green beans, peas or corn to the side, and enjoy your manly man's dish.

These both look and sound so yummy!

Mini Fritata's with Aspargus Hollandaise

Words have left me. I want this, and I want this now. This would make a great Christmas morning breakfast.

Holly Topped Cupcakes

These would be perfect for setting the fetive mood at any holiday party.



  1. Thanks SO much for the feature!!!

  2. What I find so funny about the steak and potatoes dinner being manly is that health wise it is probably more beneficial for woman who can use the iron.

  3. Thank you so much for featuring my recipe. And I'm sorry I am just responding to you now, it's been a busy month! I love this link-up and had no idea you did it with Diane- I will be sure to stop by here more often!
