October was my first month as a guest blogger for Omaha Steaks and, of course, I wanted to share my first two posts with all of you! While I'm technically not getting paid to do this, I do get free product of my choosing based on the topic themes of the month. That being said, I would never write anything I didn't enjoy or believe in and to be honest both my parents and I have enjoyed Omaha Steaks on occasion for years and years. So when the opportunity presented itself it felt like an authentic way to get SavoryGirl a bit more awareness and visibility.
For my first month, I wrote two posts, which I've shared below. To be 100% candid, I absolutley love their Rapid Roast technology. Both the teriyaki pork tenderloin and the beef wellington goes straight from the freezer to the oven, stay in a vacuum sealed pack and cook up with making zero mess at all. Does it get any easier? And they both cooked perfectly according to the directions. I really enjoyed the Beef Wellington and would buy these again on my own...steak cooked perfectly and the mushroom pate and flaky crust felt decadent just as Beef Wellington should! The pork tenderloin cooked up well, but to be honest the teriyaki glaze was a bit too salty for my taste. And you all know how SavoryGirl feels about salt! So next time I make it I would likely pair it with a sweet glaze or dipping sauce to counterbalance the teriyaki marinade. Since my pineapple fried rice that i served along side it is also a pretty salty the overall meal was a bit much, despite the sweetness of the pineapple. So I'd also likely choose a different side dish to balance out the flavors...maybe a sweet potato pineapple bake or something along those lines.
So, here are my very first guest blog posts for Omaha Steaks' SteakBytes Blog...check them out and let me know what you think!
I'll continue to share my monthly posts here on SavoryGirl, but if you want to keep an eye on them yourself my page on the Omaha Steaks SteakBytes Blog can be found here.
