Omaha Steaks for the Perfect Meal at Home

Now that the holidays and all of our large family get-togethers are behind us, I’m looking forward to planning and hosting some much more intimate dinner parties over the next few months.  While I want to wow dinner guests with something truly special when they come over, I really hate the idea of spending the entire visit cooking, preparing, and cleaning, thus missing out on all the great conversations with our guests.  Because of this aversion to cooking an elaborate dinner, I usually would end up doing something rather boring and simple or suggesting we just go out to dinner instead.

Cmb45605 But not anymore.  I was just recently given the opportunity to check out Omaha Steaks and was incredibly impressed not only with the food itself, but also how easy it was to cook, serve and clean up after.  When I first heard I was going to be trying out some gourmet gifts handpicked by their experts, I was a little nervous that I might be spending all night in the kitchen stressing about how to cook everything at once but that wasn’t the case. 

Since I’m horrible at timing even the simplest meal, I was doubtful I was going to be able to handle a gourmet feast, but even I did okay with an Omaha Steaks appetizer, two sides and steaks all ready at the same time.  Part of this is because the included instructions are so easy and clear, and part of it is because almost everything was able to cook in a special tray for baking.  Yes, that’s right, most everything cooked in the oven {aka hands-off cooking} and all but one dish came in its own oven-proof tray {aka easiest cleanup ever}!

Fm109 If I hadn’t been impressed with Omaha Steaks as I prepared the meal, I certainly would have been once I took my first bite of the best Filet Mignon I have ever had and its accompanying sides.  In fact, the meal was so delicious that I completely forgot to take a picture of the gourmet feast as we began to eat.  No worries, I thought, I will just snap a picture of the leftovers.  Unfortunately I didn’t realize that a meal that centers around Omaha Steaks Filet Mignon is not likely to have any leftovers at all, something I figured out later as the last dish was completely emptied.

While most people would expect a company that has “Steak” in their name to give you a premium Filet Mignon, we were all really impressed by how great every dish, side and dessert was and how well they went together.  Something I probably would have never picked out but that we all {kids included} ended up loving was their Jumbo Bacon-Wrapped Scallops.  We served them with the meal itself instead of as an appetizer and paired them with the delicious Steakhouse Potatoes and some broccoli.  Perfection. 

D057 And, just when our guests thought the feast couldn’t get any better, we pulled out Omaha Steaks individual New York Cheesecakes and drizzled blueberries over the top.  Can you say ‘delicious’?  It pretty much was the best dessert ever and we were all raving as we savored them in our post-feast euphoria.      

Now that we’ve seen how great Omaha Steaks are for intimate dinner parties and how easy it is to cook up a gourmet meal at a fraction of the cost of going to a steakhouse, you can bet I will turn to them again for our next party or dinner in with hubby.  It is easy to order a meal or two and save it in the freezer for your next dinner date, or to do as we did and cook it right as it arrives because you are just dying to try it.  Simply browse the delicious steaks, seafood, side dishes, and desserts at Omaha Steaks and choose your perfect meal and extras.

  1. I would choose the Steak & Potato platter that includes:
    4 (5 oz.) Bacon-Wrapped Filets
    4 Cheddar Cheese Hash Browns
    2 (6.5 oz. trays) Green Beans With Red Peppers
    thanks for the Delicious Giveaway

  2. We like the Omaha Steaks burgers and filet mignons, so we would probably get two 6 oz filet mignon steaks and apply the rest of the gift certificate toward the purchase of burgers. We might add a Tiramisu Cake or Chocolate Lovers Cake, though, since both are good

  3. I would add a little cash with my order and get a value custom combo order for $69.
