Mad Hungry with Lucinda Scala Quinn

Recipes From Today's Show: Steak Night Menu

Posted by

TODAY on MHTV: There’s a reason steakhouses are so popular; juicy cuts of meat and awesome sides make for a great meal and it’s easy to recreate steak house magic at home. Buy an inexpensive cut of meat like hanger steak and marinate it—it’ll  give the meat a flavor boost and make it really tender. Creamed spinach and bistro-style pommes frites are the perfect sides and for dessert, try my velvety chocolate pudding. More from the show.

  • Hi Lucinda,

    You are such a smart woman! I watch your show and enjoy it so much. I grew up with a mother, great aunt and grandmother who loved to cook and unfortunately, they passed away many years ago. I miss all of the great meals we shared together.....the love that is shown by preparing meals with/for the people you love. Your show reminds me of cooking with my wonderful relatives. I can tell you love what you do so much. It makes me want to cook more for myself.

    I learned quite a bit about cooking from my mother, grandmother and great aunt, but they have been gone for quite some time. It's so wonderful to have someone so down to earth to learn from once again. I'm watching your show right now and your discussion about why, when you cut potatoes, before you fry them, it's wise to dip them in cold water and let the starches release in the water before frying.....it makes perfect sense. Also, your discussion on tempuring, when you were making the chocolate pudding, once again, made perfect sense. Thank you for the explanations you give while cooking. I really appreciate it! I love your show and would love to visit your set or cook with you, if you ever have viewers on your show. If not, I'll just continue to be content learning your clever cooking techniques from the comfort of my home. Thank you, Dana

  • Thank you so much for making the steak in the skillet on your show. I use the technique with the butter in the pan and then you out the steak over top of it. My husband was really impressed. He said it was really good. He is very particular about his steak so I was a little nervous but it turned out perfectly medium rare just the was he likes it.

    I like the food that you make because it is not the same ol' thing but it is just different enough that you are not bored. Thanks again Vickie

  • Lucinda, I love your show. So easy to follow the recipes and you are a delight. I especially enjoyed your Christmas dinner show. Lucille

  • Lucinda, I've never been a very good cook, but my New Year's Resolution is to find recipes that keep my family happy at meal time. You are a great inspiration for family meals, and I have learned a lot while watching your show. My family is eating out less, which is great with a horrible economy!
    I made the Grilled Hangar Steak, and my family loved it. The only thing I would do different next time...I would use less pepper to season. I didn't have fresh pepper, so I might have overdone it a little with pre-ground pepper. Again, the family enjoyed it, and I appreciate you "bringing back the family meal!"

  • Just watched what must have been a re-run of this episode. I'm just wondering what the heck happened to the french fries? You never plated them.... Did I miss something?
