I love to grill steaks. And my no-so-secret place to buy quality meat is Costco. Of all the grocery stores and butcher shops I’ve been to, rib eyes and New York strips from Costco are the best. Plus, I can get 104 ounces of peanut butter, a tub of pretzels and 24 Coronas if I choose.
But seriously, I love the steaks at Costco.
And when you get high quality meat, you can skip the crazy seasonings and marinades. When I grill the marbled strips, all I use is a little salt and pepper. No goofy recipes. No drenching marinades.
They go together.
When you do a few things, you can do them well. When you do a few things well, you don’t have to dazzle them up with secret sauces. The simple quality can speak for itself.
In life, business, church or steak, when you have high quality stuff, you don’t have to dress it up to make it palatable. So a church service with good music and a good message doesn’t need the hype from putting a bed on the roof for 24 hours. A product that does what it needs to do better than all the other products doesn’t need a blue inflatable monkey and a Ferris wheel to attract customers. A quality comedian doesn’t need to drown the message in profanity laced cheap laughs.
Maybe simplicity and quality go together like Ribeyes and 104 ounces or peanut butter from Costco.
