Protein…mmmm

Ever since I started this huge lifesyle altering workout and diet regime, I haven’t had a big delicious, juicy, tender, slightly charbroiled, smothered in a marinate glaze… STEAK. 

To examplify this lust, my friend just called and invited me to a BBQ this Friday; my RSVP is dependant on the presence of the guesof honor, Steak.  Also, for the past 3 days, I’ve been trying to find a Steak-like asatiation during my dinner.  Maybe a chicken breast’s protein would equate, maybe a grilled Salmon with Montreal steak sauce? Nope… still salivating at every The Keg commercial.  Omg, I am even writing a BLOG post about my need for steak.  It’s disgusting. 

Personal justification: It really doesn’t even make sense why I am avoiding steak.  Part of this new healthy-diet of mine is minimizing fats and maximizing protein. With the right cut of steak (Round, Sirloin.. Fillet… etc etc), grilled on a flame (not the amazingly yummy flat top) and marinated with minimum sodium content.  It’s actually super healthy, the protein will help me build muscle and with mroe muscle, I burn more calories and fat.  The important thing is to order a side of veggies instead of mashed potatoes or fries.   Ok.. I am convinced.

So I’ll see you at the friendly neighborhood Steakhouse, k?

Speaking of Steak houses.  Everyone knows Outback was my ultimate fav.  And since it’s shut-door in Ontario, I’m like a baby without it’s favorite toy…. or a carnavore without meat.  I’ve also befriended a lot of the ex-managers, cooks of the restaurant, hoping they will recreate the steak greatness for me.  One day… maybe…  I have gone as far as dating an ex- Steak chef.  (he hasn’t made me very many steak meals… last time was Feb I think)  Anyhow, through a grape vine, I heard the ex restaurant manager is Opening his own franchise in place, with the exkitchen manager as…. kitchen manager….THE GREAT CANADIAN STEAKHOUSE In the same location.  I’ve already contributed to the new menu.  Calamari, glazed salmon with sesame thai glaze.   So it’s going to be awhile until it opens.  But I’ll definately be there opening day!

    oh my stars.. i want that steak with the mushrooms on top. Drooools galore. i actually had steak today too but it looks sad compared to yours. hahaha!

  2. I know, it’s bad right?! For the longest time I had the same craving, so I bought two great steaks, marinaded them, sauteed some onions/mushrooms, and served me and my hubby! Now my cravings have subsided, but now that you bring it back up…haha. Hope you have a great time at the bbq!
