Happy Holidays! Looking for a gift for someone who has everything? Give the gift of Omaha Steaks combos. Tastes great. Priced right.
I grew up in Iowa, and for many of those years, lived on the Iowa Nebraska border near Omaha. I remember Omaha Steaks as a rare treat. Of course back then, Mom pan-fried the beef until it was charred and well done.
Yeah, I know, I have issues.
Today, my culinary adventure has strayed slightly to a tender and juicy, medium rare, thick cut of good filet. Or sirloin. Or tenderloin. Okay, beef anything.
When Omaha Steaks provided me with the following product for a review on my blog*, well, I kept watching and waiting for the FedEx guy to deliver my package.
When the package arrived, the sealed boxes were individually packed safely in dry ice inside a hard-sided styrofoam cooler. It was a Wednesday in December and I had just come off an intensive, schedule packed, 6 day trip to Puebla, Mexico. A great trip, but an exhausting one, so the convenience of having a dinner planned, all ingredients at my fingertips was almost as freeing as a glass of wine.
Oh yeah, this was destined to be a holiday gift enjoyed by me and my family.
We invited our adult daughter to join us — and it wasn’t too hard to entice her with the tantalizing Omaha Steak Holiday Indulgence Combo. Who could refuse a mid-week Omaha Steak Triple-Trimmed Filet Mignon with Seasoned Butter, Maine Lobster Tail, Stuffed Baked Potatoes (borrowed from the The Holiday Helper Combo Gift Package)?
We seasoned the filet, readying them for the grill. I poured myself a glass of wine. And then our house became an episode of culinary Christmas Vacation.
The grill wouldn’t fire up, so we took the Stuffed Baked Potatoes out of the oven 10 minutes early, turning the oven broiler on. I quickly lined the broiler pan with foil and transferred the Lobster & Filet. Thankfully, Omaha Steak provided a cheat sheet on how long to cook all items so there was no guessing and overcooking.
So we’re good to go, right? As I removed the sizzling steak from the oven, our house fire alarm went off. We slid the patio door open, laughing all the way. The best news is that, by using the suggested cooking times, the filet was a perfect medium rare, seasoned just right. (Shhh, don’t tell my father-in-law, who runs cattle in southeast Parker and gifts us with a home-raised quarter beef every year, but these filets were as good as his.)
The brushed-with-butter lobster (per instructions) couldn’t have been more sweeter and not overcooked, despite the fire alarm. Stuffed Baked Potatoes, hello, we’re talking butter and cheese and other potato goodness! We pushed ourselves from the table after demolishing the entire meal for 3 (with one filet, lobster and potato tucked away to share with hubby the next day).
The finale? The individual Salted Caramel Brownie was gooey goodnes after a mere seconds in the microwave and I LOVE hot and gooey!
