Beef and Broccoli

Let me begin this post by dispelling the notion that a man who cooks is in some way feminine! On the CONTRARY, a man who can cook to many women is extremely attractive! With that said, let me just put something out there I’ve been saying for some years now; “A man who can cook is the new modern day Mr. Right!”

To the single ladies — While wining and dining you is a sure way to make you feel special, there is nothing like a man who will take the time, energy, and effort to cook you a nice meal. I mean most men can read instructions right? They know how to put a bicycle, desk or TV stand together by reading instructions! What would stop their success when reading a recipe? Don’t forget that the way you start out the relationship is the way you will finish!

To the married women — Let me just say WUSHA! That is how I feel when my wonderful Mr. Right husband decides on his own to surprise me by cooking our family a meal (hence the photos of of him cooking us a wonderful dinner in this post)! Whether you are a stay at home mom who is exhausted from all the laundry, cooking, cleaning, grocery shopping, etc., or the working mom who is having a hard time at work and needs a break at home, it all leads to the same modern day joy; a man who can cook!

To the single men — If you want to find and keep a good woman you’ve got to come correct! Have you met someone special you feel you could really be serious about? By cooking her a nice meal, you show her just how wonderful her life would be with you in it! It screams independent, self-confident, loving, patient, and considerate!

To the married men — If you want to make your wife happy, cook her a nice meal. Make it a surprise! Next, sit back and watch your wife pamper you 100 times over! It is something simple that would mean the world to the woman you love!

A MAN WHO CAN COOK IS THE NEW MODERN DAY MR. RIGHT! BEEF & BROCCOLI DONE RIGHT!

INGREDIENTS:

3 cups of frozen broccoli florets
1 lb. beef stir fry strips
1 cup of long grain white rice & two cups of water (rice is always 2 to 1 ratio)
¼ cup hoisin sauce
¼ cup Catalina Dressing (I used Kraft)
1 tbsp. crushed garlic
6 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
Sea Salt to taste
Ground black pepper to taste
Dried thyme to taste

READY, SET, GO:

Boil the water and add a little sea salt and unsalted butter
Add rice to boiling water, turn the heat down to medium, cover and allow to cook for about 10 – 15 minutes or until rice is al dente (done ~ smile)
When rice is done add 2 tbsp. unsalted butter and ½ tbsp. sea salt and stir
NOW LET’S MAKE THE BEEF
Heat extra virgin olive oil in large skillet on medium
Add beef strips to the extra virgin olive oil (it should sizzle sizzle baby)
Allow beef strips to cook for 5 – 7 minutes or until beef is fully cooked
NOW LET’S MAKE THE BROCCOLI
Add frozen broccoli to a Pampered Chef Vegetable Steamer or medium pot with a cover
Add 1/3 cup of water to broccoli
If you are using the Pampered Chef Vegetable Steamer cover and place in microwave for 8 minutes or until broccoli is tender – if you are using a medium pot with cover, put on stove and turn heat to medium/high cover but lift the cover just a little so a very small amount of steam can come out and cook for 10 minutes or until broccoli is tender
After broccoli is done, drain, and add unsalted butter and sea salt to taste
NOW LET’S PUT IT ALL TOGETHER
Add broccoli, hoisin sauce, Catalina dressing and crushed garlic to the cooked beef and stir, cook for 8 – 10 minutes and serve over the white rice.
ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!

    I have a husband that has never minded flexing his culinary skills. There’s nothing hotter (to me) than being poured a glass of wine and ushered out of the kitchen.

      this just happened to me last night! my sweetie has had a rough week at work; i have too…and he called me while i was at the gym. he said “after workout, come over, i have dinner for you.” the surprise was caldo…which is mexican soup and tortillas. (sooooo yummy!) i walked in, asked if i could help, he said “no, sit, relax and enjoy your beer.” i love this man! even though we both had tough weeks at work, he put his stress aside to cook for me and ask about my day! nothing is sexier than a man that can cook 🙂

    That’s like a requirement. My boo has made some fancy meals for me and he’s a great cook. He boots me out the kitchen when I try to micromanage him. I can appreciate that!

Sweet Corn Pudding Just Like Grandma Makes It

BMWK Secondary Corn Pudding bowl and baking dish (600x390)

When I think of corn pudding I think of Grandma. It’s funny I made this for a birthday party and one of the gentlemen said “OK, whose Grandma made the corn pudding”! I boasted I made the corn pudding Mr., but I am not a Grandma just yet — smile! I was given this recipe years ago by my Mother’s best friend Burdette’s daughter in-law Burnetta. How ironic is it that Burdette’s son married a woman named Burnetta, ok I digress. The first time I had the corn pudding was at a cook out. Well you know that dish you taste that’s so freakin good you have to ask or beg if you have to for the recipe, this was it! Then when she gave me the recipe, I thought something this good could not have been this easy to cook. But it was and OMG every time I make this sweet corn pudding it gets rave reviews! Hope you enjoy!!!!
