Here’s the second installment of our Cooking with Christian Music weekly feature: a quick and easy recipe forTeriyaki Steak & Brown Rice from NFL Superbowl Champ new recording artist Ben Utecht (tight end for the Cincinnati Bengals) and his wife, Karyn.
Karyn says, “We love this meal because it is healthful, but not labor intensive. So, when the football season is in full-swing, we’re busy, and Ben needs complex carbohydrates, good protein and lots of nutrients… this meal is a perfect fit.” (“Dare I call it a touchdown?” she adds with a laugh. Yup, it’s a touchdown!)
