When you feel like feeding your inner carnivore, there’s nothing quite like a butter-basted pan-seared steak. Paired with an easy to make Gorgonzola sauce, it can also be a perfect dish for Steak and BJ day.
For Valentine’s day we posted our Beetroot Valentine’s day cake. While I’m sure the guys could have appreciated the cake, the cute heart-shaped decorations, were probably not quite their thing. Which perfectly illustrates the problem with Valentine’s day as a whole. It should be about celebrating romantic love. In practice however, it’s the day when men show their love for their female partner, by buying stuff that women find romantic. Because, let’s be honest, Valentine’s day is for the girls.
So it’s only fair that there’s a special day for men too. Conveniently, such a day already exists: Steak and BJ day, for women who want to do something special for their man. Steak and BJ day probably started as an internet joke, so who “invented” it exactly is kind of unclear. There are people who really dislike this holiday and think it’s distasteful. I can’t say I understand them. If Valentine’s day has a right to exist, so does this holiday. Besides, it only started as a joke. So my advise would be to not take everything so seriously.
In any case, Steak and BJ day is a simple holiday. No cards, no flowers, just a steak and a BJ, not necessarily in that order. We will only be providing directions for the first part of this celebration. Sorry to anyone who was expecting a video-tutorial for the second part…
Our recipe for steak with Gorgonzola sauce is both delicious and simple to make. Cooking the steak is the only part that requires any real skill. Some people don’t like cooking steak because they’re scared of not cooking it “right”. Firstly, you’re not the head-chef at a restaurant, so there is no need for your food to be “perfect”. If it tastes right, you cooked it right. Secondly, don’t be afraid to try again. There’s no shame in not getting things quite right on the very first try. And thirdly, he’ll forgive you as long as the second part of the evening is to his liking.
