こんばんは。Mariko had a simple request for Mother’s Day: please feed me and let me watch my tv shows. 😆
With that in mind, Bay was tasked with preparing breakfast, and Koa would help with the grill at dinner, and also make sure Mariko had mimosas on-demand. 🥂
First up was breakfast, and for this, Bay made deluxe breakfast burritos with eggs, cheese, chorizo, jalapeño sausage, bacon, and hashbrowns. Since we couldn’t find super-gigantic tortillas, Bay divided them into smaller burritos, but they were still awesome. 🌯
For dinner, Bay prepared garlic mashed potatoes in the Instant Pot, while Koa grilled the sirloin steaks on the deck barbecue. This was Koa’s first time grilling, so I helped him with the meat-thermometer and seasoning the 4 Top Sirloins from Omaha Steaks. They turned out nicely, with perfect medium-rare doneness. I threw in some broccoli for good measure, plus some rolls that Mariko had baked earlier, and it was a yummy dinner! 🥩
And as a little bonus, we also gave her a bouquet of fresh flowers. 💐
I hope you had a nice day!
p.s. We ordered a bunch of food items from Omaha Steaks, and if you’d like to try the Top Sirloin steaks like we had, please click on the delicious-looking steak photo (affiliate link) below.
The other night for dinner we ate our bacon-wrapped filet mignon steaks which we bought from Omaha Steaks. I cooked them on a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, for about 6 minutes on one side, then 5 minutes on the other, and finishing up with a couple minutes on the edges to make sure the bacon was cooked. The internal temperature (checked with an instant-read meat thermometer) read about 130 when I took them off the heat, and they were a nice medium rare when we cut into them.
Being filet-mignon meant the steaks were very tender and anything wrapped with bacon is going to be extra-special. We added a pat of butter on each filet (because why not?) and the juicy steaks did not disappoint – we were all satisfied!
We rounded out the meal with a spinach salad and homemade fries, which were great compliments to the steaks. Steak Frites – so good!
This was the last meal that we cooked from the special order we received from Omaha Steaks. I have to say, these were the best of the bunch, without a doubt.
