My Steakcation

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central Consulting for LongHorn Steakhouse. I received a gift card to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank-you for participating.

My family just got back from a great trip to Disney. I discovered the best way to recover from a vacation- I took a “Steakcation” at Longhorn Steakhouse. Joining me in my journey to enjoy the “perfect steak” was my neighbor.
We usually grill out on Father’s Day. As a matter of fact, my wife recently surprised me with a brand new gas/charcoal grill for my birthday. I love grilling, but it was nice being able to just sit and chat and enjoy some good food.
The service was excellent. We started off with an appetizer – the Wild West Shrimp. This shrimp had some kick! It also came with a ranch dipping sauce. There was an ample amount of shrimp definitely enough for more than two people, but we polished it off pretty well.
For our main course we ordered the Porterhouse For Two. This steak is not for the meek and mild. It was 30 ounces of pure steak delight. We ordered it medium well and it was cooked perfectly. It also came with a signature steak sauce which was prepared at our table.
My neighbor ordered the sweet potato ( a signature side) while I ordered the loaded potato. And because we couldn’t get enough spuds, we also ordered a side of season fries. Salads are not pictured because we were preserving them for any vegetarians that may accompany any steak eater at a later time.
It was nice having the time to catch up and enjoy a great meal. The steak was so satisfying (and did I mention it was 30 OUNCES?!?) we got our desserts to go.
I am looking forward to grilling out this weekend and using my Longhorn signature steak knives – they make cutting pretty easy. If only I could get my hands on a 30 ounce porterhouse…
