Costco Adventures I

My family loves to eat good beef and steaks are no exception.  We have tried out numerous brands and types of steaks over the past three years and we have finally found the one awesome brand of steak to have for dinner!

Surprisingly, we all love Costco’s AAA steaks.  They are superb in their moisture and tenderness.  It is a definite must-have if you are a steak fan with a budget!  Priced at approximately $20 for three steaks (packaged), they are quite economical for those that want to have steaks on a daily basis.  In addition, the steaks are fresh and do not need a lot of seasoning for them to come out absolutely perfect!

I recently bought a pack from Costco for dinner with two of my very good friends in University.  We went all out on this one!  We even bought sparkling juice and ice cream desserts to celebrate!

Pan Grilled Steak


  • Costco AAA Steak
  • A pinch of salt
  • Oil (I use safflower oil)
  • Soy sauce
  • 1/2 clove of Garlic (chopped)
  1. Marinate the steaks an hour prior to cooking.  In a medium to large sized bowl, put in the steak(s).  Pour soy sauce over the raw steak, carefully flipping them over with a pair of chopsticks (or whatever utensils you choose to use).  Make sure they have all more or less been generously exposed to soy sauce.
  2. On a chopping board, chop the garlic up into bits.
  3. Turn the heat on your stove to medium, set the frying pan down, and add a tiny bit of oil.
  4. Add the chopped garlic into the pan as the pan begins to heat up.
  5. Carefully place each steak onto the pan and flip twice so both sides turn a nice shade of brown.  Cover the pan with a lid and let it cook for about 5 minutes (this step really depends on how you take your steak.  I take mine medium)
  6. Remember to always monitor how well cooked your steak is.  You don’t want it to be overcooked or undercooked!
  7. When finished, remove the steak from the pan and let it cool for about 2-3 minutes.  This will allow the steak to retain it’s moisture/juice so when you decide to have your steak, it’s still moist and tender.
There you have it: the perfect steak dinner!
