What’s For Dinner, Bro? Top Ten Things You Can Do To A Slab Of Meat

As men, we all like meat, except for the rare few who claim to be vegan. But even they have succumbed to the call of flesh once. So, in order to answer to the call of meat, here’s a special top ten list today – a top ten list of things that you can do to a slab of meat.

10. Cowboy-Cut Grilled Tomahawk Ribeye Steak

Let’s start with a recipe that’s made of three parts: meat, fire, and testosterone according to “A Bachelor & His Grill” the gent who concocted this manly recipe. If Jason Momoa can throw tomahawks, then I’m sure he is not going to throw these.

9. Perfectly Grilled New York Strip Steaks

Here’s a life skill every man should learn: how to perfectly grill stuff. And if you want to learn, this lady blogger from Boulder Locavore has a ton of good advice – and a recipe to boot!

8. Santa Maria Style Tri Tip

Who says that you need to travel to Santa Maria, California just to enjoy a Santa Maria steak. You can just go ahead and make your own Santa Maria rub which is basically made up of Kosher salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, cayenne, oregano, rosemary, and sage.

7. Grilled Drunk Steak             

Who says you could just drink tequila? You can eat it too, turn it into a steak rub and voila. You can “Wubbalubbadubdub!” like Rick with the Grilled Margarita Steak recipe by Spicy Southern Kitchen.

6. Steak With Mustard Butter

Have you ever tried mustard butter yet? Oh my goodness, it’s one of the best things in the world. Don’t limit its use to steak, but please, indulge.

5. Porterhouse Steaks with Compound Butter

I’m going to start this higher half of the list with absolute classics starting with Porterhouse Steaks with Compound Butter. The blogger from Spicy Perspective said that it’s one of the best things to serve during camping. My opinion? It’s best to serve anytime.

4. The Best Steak Sandwich In The World

There’s nothing like binge-watching the latest season of Vikings with a platter of perfectly cooked steak sandwiches. The secret to these sandwiches? The best quality ingredients. The best steak cut, the freshest vegetables, spices, and vinegar. You see, one of the things that usually ruin a steak sandwich is that we don’t treat it with care because in the end, it’s just a sandwich. So, don’t think like that. Care for this sandwich like it’s THE SANDWICH. Because it really is.

3. Mushroom Smothered Steak

Some claim it’s blanched vegetables. Others, a healthy salad. For me, the best companion for my steak will always be mushrooms. If your dream threesome is composed of you and two Victoria’s Secret angels, mine would be steak, mushrooms, and butter, in my mouth.

2. Seared Steak and Chimichurri

They say that the best steak can be found in Argentina, and the perfect companion for the best steak in the world? Nothing else but chimichurri. Magical, this chimichurri is. Fascinating how parsley, cilantro, garlic, oregano, white wine, and olive oil can come together and make this heavenly green concoction.

1. Filet Mignon With Porcini Mushroom Compound Butter

Of course, nothing still beats the classic Filet Mignon. Ask any gentleman what they’ll have in an evening of elegance and decadence and I bet they’ll answer: filet mignon. Don’t embarrass yourself, it’s pronounced as “minnn-yonn”, silent “g”. Take note of that and you’ll sail through.
