Grilled Sirloin Steak

11140107_10152773601730759_5564632257978717176_nMy boyfriend’s specialty is steak. Over the years, he’s gotten more creative with cooking (no more Ramen for this guy!), and steak is his favorite thing to cook. I must say, I am super impressed with his steak skills. We can thank Gordon Ramsey for that on YouTube.

He knows I’m a snob for really tender steak (I usually order a filet mignon, even though the cut lacks flavor). He’s gotten me to enjoy a sirloin, which definately has significant flavor.

He uses a big blend of spices, and creates almost a crust on the steak (WARNING: spicy!). I don’t know how he gets it perfect everytime, but this is one dish I know I can sit back and wait for.

Black Bean Burger – Skinnytaste

11181815_10152793767000759_1460618886155592203_nOne of my favorite gifts this past Christmas that I received was the Skinnytaste Cookbook. I have yet to make every recipe, but not one has dissapointed me yet. This recipe is so simple, and delicious, that I double it, and freeze them individually for later use. It’s been a life saver, to just grab this out of the freezer, and have dinner ready in 5 minutes (and it’s not processed #WIN).

 

Grab her cook book, and get this recipe! It is gold.

I even put it on top of a hard corn tortilla to make tostada’s for lunch.

Warning! – Expensive. But totally worth it.

We don’t usually spend a ton of money on eating out, but we like to splurge when it’s a special occasion. (Birthdays, anniversaries, etc.)

We came here on our 1 year anniversary and spent nearly $200!

Our meal:

Lobster Bisque (Rich and big chunks of lobster)

Oysters Rockefeller

Filet Mignon

Pan Roasted Salmon
