Did you know that one out of seven adults live alone? As of 2012, according to The New York Times, there were more than 30 million people living alone.

What are 30 million people eating for dinner? I bet it's not steak they cooked themselves! But, I asked myself, why not? So I picked up a 5-ounce strip steak for less than $3, added some leftover mushrooms, a splash of red wine and some leftover Gorgonzola cheese -- and I knew I had dinner. Altogether, my dinner, including the leftovers and the baked potato, cost only five bucks, and it was amazing!

I, for one, am tired of feeling like I have to eat blah food because it's just me in the house. What's wrong with sizzling up a steak every now and then?

No special occasion is required, unless you are like me and celebrate the fact you get a good deal at the grocery.

Of course if you are cooking for two, it's easy to sizzle more than one steak. Either way, don't wait another minute. This recipe is classic, fast and easy.

Suggested menu: Steak for One with baked potato and red wine of choice.
