I had been wanting to do a steak night for a while, I’m lucky as a cook because all my friends like their steaks the same way, medium-rare. So when David suggested I cook up some T-bone steaks for the next dinner party I jumped at the chance.
The secret to a good T-bone is to marinate it the night before to get that flavor locked in. I went with herbs, spices, cooking wine and a table spoon of Texan BBQ sauce. Using a dry heat grill is the fastest and most effective way to get a tender and succulent T-bone steak.
My dear friend David arrived with a case of beer, which is the quickest way to get the biggest steak when coming to one of my dinner parties! and he was giddy with excitement. We talked about work and the stresses and joys that come with working with competitive internet based company’s then I remembered that David sorted the content on a popular porn website and I told him to never complain to me again!
Angela, her friend Jess Matthews, and Toby all arrived together, Toby was in charge of the music and played some classic Prince while I grilled the T-bones. I passed around some beers and we shared some dating horror stories.
I told everyone about the time I was in college and a girl I was seeing brought her mom to chaperon us. I was so nervous and I drank too much and the night ended with me being sick all over my dates mom, suffice to say there was no second date!
“That explains so much about you” joked Angela.
I served up the steaks with some sweet mash potatoes, asparagus and steamed carrots. The steak was a tender delight and the flavor was so delicious it made you want to lick the plate. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it, which is the best parts of cooking a meal for friends.
“A toast to Sean’s amazing steaks and his hilarious dating history” said David, raising his glass.
