Week 14, Meal 2: Steak and eggs with purple potatoes and asparagus

Maybe it’s just me, but there’s something sexy about slightly-bloody grilled beef covered in gooey, golden egg yolk.

I’d describe it to you, but why waste words when the picture above says everything I would have and more.

Without further ado, here’s the next meal in our series of dishes with aphrodisiacs: Week 14, Meal 2: Steak and eggs with purple potatoes and asparagus. Continue reading Week 14, Meal 2: Steak and eggs with purple potatoes and asparagus

Week 7, Meal 1: Grass-fed beef burger with bacon, caramelized onion compote, arugula and over-easy egg

Only I would seek out a healthy version of a bacon and egg burger, but it looks like Chef Brian has gone above and beyond yet again with Week 7, Meal 1: Grass-fed beef burger with bacon, caramelized onion compote, arugula and over-easy egg.

Brian says: “When I make a burger it is easy to get carried away with sauces and cheese and tons of bacon. On this one you have compote with a great bacon and onion flavor that the red wine will enrich. The egg takes the place of the sauces and cheeses, which can make the calories get out of control.”

I wrangled whatever the calorie count is down a little while increasing the healthiness of the meat by using grass-fed beef instead (about 250 calories for 4 oz.; Read: Benefits of grass-fed beef). I also went with a reasonably low-cal roll, at 170 calories per piece.

Learn how to prepare this beastly burg after the jump. Continue reading Week 7, Meal 1: Grass-fed beef burger with bacon, caramelized onion compote, arugula and over-easy egg

Week 4, Meal 3: Huevos Rancheros

I’ve gone through many highs and lows in the kitchen in the four weeks since this blog’s inception.

I think back to night one when I spent nearly four hours getting the hang of prep work, cook times, burner sensitivity, etc. That was a frustrating day which made me question the stupidity of launching a blog where cooking nightly is mandatory.

I remember Week 3’s Chilean sea bass and the triumph I felt with each buttery bite of fish, each sweet sip of tomato. Putting together Week 4, Meal 3: Huevos Rancheros gave me that same great feeling.

It’s the first time I’ve made any Mexican dish at home that isn’t a quesadilla or doesn’t have this stuff in it. Legit Mexican at home — another notch in my kitchen’s belt.

Speaking of highs and lows, only a handful of times in these four weeks have I not wanted to cook — last night being one of them — but as always my loving wife made me put down the Call of Duty, get my ass of the couch and get to work.

And it’s always worth it in the end. Both in taste, and on my waistline.

Now let’s cook some huevos y’all. Continue reading Week 4, Meal 3: Huevos Rancheros

Week 4, Meal 2: Cinnamon French toast with blueberry compote

This might surprise you, but I’m not a huge fan of French toast. It’s simple really — pancakes are just better, hands down.

But I’m no pancake magician. Chef Brian gave me a cookbook for Christmas a few years back with his recipe for pancakes, and it’s a recipe that I’ve never been able to replicate.

On the other hand, it was a simple affair putting together Week 4, Meal 2: Cinnamon French toast with blueberry compote.

So, now, because I can actually make this, I’m choosing French toast. Screw you pancakes. Continue reading Week 4, Meal 2: Cinnamon French toast with blueberry compote

Week 4, Meal 1: Frittata with spinach, mushroom, tomato and feta

I got home a later than expected from work last night and decided that Huevos Rancheros — originally planned as Week 4, Meal 1 — was just not happening.

So I switched gears and decided to whip up Week 4, Meal 1: Frittata with spinach, mushroom, tomato and feta.

I’ve only ever had one frittata — essentially a baked omelette — and I wasn’t too happy to see this dish on the menu because my previous experience didn’t go well.

As always, Chef Brian came through with a simple, easy-to-prepare dish that whipped the pants off any restaurant egg dish I’ve had in recent memory. Continue reading Week 4, Meal 1: Frittata with spinach, mushroom, tomato and feta
