What's a pre-game night without a steak, gotta stock up that energy to cheer on the Bronco's. This hearty meal will get you through tomorrow's game.


What You'll Need:

Any great steak at least a half inch thick, butter, a heavy pan, season all, garlic powder, ground pepper, a can of beef broth and a dash of red wine (optional).

Putting It All Together:

set the defrosted steak(s) out on the counter at least fifteen minutes before you plan to cook them and sprinkle seasoning's to your liking on both sides, don't use salt as the season all has salt in it, set a heavy bottomed pan or even grill pan on the stove top and turn the heat to medium-high, let the pan get hot then add about a Tbsp of butter to the pan, let it melt and then add your steak(s) two at a time if cooking more than one or one at a time if your pan is too little and your steaks are too big. :) Cook for 3-8 minutes on each side, it all depends on how you like them cooked. Use your tongs and feel the steak, if it is 'spongy' it is more red inside, if it is firmer it is closer to medium to medium-well. Don't cut into the steak as you will lose yummy juices and the steak can end up tasting dry. Let the steaks rest for 10 minutes before serving, just set them on a plate and loosely cover with foil while you are getting the other dinner elements together.

Once you take the steaks out of the pan add a pad of butter, let melt and beef broth, get all the little bits stuck on the bottom of the pan up and stir, bring to a boil add about a 1/4 cup of red wine, completely optional but if you do, let boil for another minute and then simmer on medium-low, again while you pull together all of the other dinner elements together.

-If you'd like ranch roasted potatoes with your steaks, pre heat the oven to 425, before cooking the steaks, cube about 3-4 potatoes toss in oil and one ranch dressing packet. roast for 30 minutes or until potatoes are golden and tender. (I usually start the steaks halfway through the cooking time on the potatoes)

-Cutting carbs this New Year? Cauliflower makes a great substitute for potatoes, par boil them for 6 minutes first and then follow the same process as you would with the potatoes.
