Man Pleasing Dinners?

I have a DH that gets tired of the same things over and over again. He's not big on spaghetti, and is happy with a meat and potatos kind of dinner. Oh and he likes my chicken stirfry.

So what are your favorite "man pleasing" dinners?

I made DH happy with this one the other day... (he accused me of having his mother make it. he liked it that much.. lol)

Take a sirloin steak place in baking dish... Cover with diced tomatoes(large can), diced peppers and onions... Cover with lid and bake at 350 for 3hours..

And take a few baking potatoes (washed) slice 3/4 way through about 1/4 in apart and press down on either end to spread apart a bit.. Place in another baking pan melt half a stick of butter and mix in some garlic and pour over potatoes.. Cook at 350 for an hour..

Re: Man Pleasing Dinners?

I think my man would be pleased with any dinner..
he makes his own ;D

DS and I are vegetarian, DH is not. So therefore, he makes whatever he wants to eat, because he's a meat and potato type guy too, and will not eat my tofu ;D

Re: Man Pleasing Dinners?

My hubby LOVES this meal.....

Permasan Tillapia

1-2 filets per person
rinse and pat dry, season both sides with s&p
saute each side for a few mins, untill almost cooked through
transfer to a baking dish
spread some mayo on them
sprinkle generously with mix of 2 parts parm 1part seasoned breadcrumbs
broil untill nicely browned

Super easy, especially if you serve with microwave ready-rice and steam-pac veg or bag of salad. But it goes great with anything really and is a huge kid pleaser. Even my super picky 3yo nephew likes this.

Re: Man Pleasing Dinners?

My DH and yours are opposites -- mine will happily eat the same food day after day, if it's one he likes! And what he likes is toast with spaghetti, toast with stir fry, toast with chicken (are you seeing a pattern? <g>).... basically anything meat-heavy with no/minimal vegetables. Or pizza. It's hard to get inspired to cook well here!
