Opinions

Potter: This dinner was pretty much your typical steak. Not a whole lot special done to it so not a whole lot to critique on. I will say I was amazed by the flavors when you were able to get a bite with everything. Orange, and really citrus in general, was never something I thought would go great on a steak but boy were those bites delicious. Something that might be fun to try with this dish is to cut the steak into bite sized pieces and just mix it in with the orange and avocado to make a weird salad.

Katie: This steak was good. The flavors were terrific and I especially liked a good bite with orange, avocado, and steak! The only thing I would have preferred was a bit more tender meat.
