You Have a Huge Box of Various Omaha Steaks

November 18, 2009 by

Have you ever seen those ads for Omaha Steaks?

To me they always looked too good to be true.  I mean really.  Frozen meat delivered to your door?!

But about two years ago I ordered box for my parents, as a thank you gift after my wedding.  We thought it was a clever gift because my husband is from Omaha.

Well I've been on their mailing list ever since, and finally a few months ago I broke down and ordered them for myself.

Talk about a cool gift!

Not only do I love that everything is packaged in normal single-serve sizes (which makes eating healthy super easy!), but I always have various meats on hand.  So no matter what we feel like for dinner, I'm ready to roll.

So lately I've been able to try out a lot of new recipes - thanks to my freezer full of meat!

And this latest recipe I found is perfect for a day when it's raining, scorching, (or snowing!) and you don't feel like battling the grill and the elements.

It involves cooking the steaks on the stove of all places, and includes a glaze made out of pomegranate juice.  And let me just say, the end result looks and tastes like something you'd order at a fancy restaurant.

Plus, the cooking style and sauce will make even an average quality piece of meat like top sirloin, into something extraordinary.

So the next time you have a huge box of meat from Omaha Steaks, or simply feel like a good steak dinner and don't feel like firing up the grill, pull out your good knives and get ready for a treat.  You have the perfect recipe for a delicious steak dinner that will make you feel like you're eating at a fancy restaurant, from the comfort of your own home.

Until our next meal,

    This steak was delicious. It's the type of meal that you would expect to pay $40 or more at a fancy restaurant. I know a lot of people wouldn't dare put a pomegranate glaze on a really good steak but believe me, it's worth it.
