After watching just a couple of cooking shows I realized that I was cooking all wrong. It seems like all the pros use “EVOO” or extra virgin olive oil when they cook-up their meals. Not only is EVOO considered the “healthier” cooking oil, but it’s also high in anti-oxidants and monounsaturated fatty acids (which may reduce your risk of heart disease.) If you’re not familiar with how to cook with EVOO, you can download the new Let’s Cook! iPhone/iPad App to get cooking tips from Top Chef contestant Fabio Viviani.

I’ve been trying my hand at cooking for awhile now, but I’ll be honest when I say I haven’t really ventured into serious meat cooking. After a horrible “lemon chicken” debacle a couple of years ago, cooking meats has pretty much been heating up a sausage or cooking a burger. I decided to be adventurous and try the totally delicious sounding Skirt Steak with Polenta recipe. Unfortunately, my plans were thwarted almost from the start when I discovered my grocery store doesn’t carry polenta, but I decided to swap it out with garlic Parmesan risotto, which came conveniently in a box. Plans back on track.
I chopped up the parsley and garlic, then mixed it with Bertolli Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil to create the marinade for the steak. I had never marinated with olive oil before, so I wasn’t sure how the results would turn out. After marinating, I cooked up the steak, filling the house with a wonderful aroma of herbs and meat. I’m happy to say that I did not overcook the steak and successfully served a delicious meal.
