"No guy required" grilled steak

Sprinkle kosher salt on a good cut of meat (I like rib eye). Toss onto a superhot grill. Avoid pushing down while grilling--it forces juice (and flavor) out. For medium rare, cook a one-inch rib eye about 2 or 3 minutes per side, more if thicker. Let sit 10 minutes before serving so juice redistributes.

Delicious fried rice

Dump that carton of leftover cooked Chinese rice and 1 tbsp. vegetable oil into a hot frying pan. Add 1 cup peas, 1 cup diced scallions, 1 tbsp. each soy sauce and sesame oil, and 1 egg. Fry until egg is scrambled and rice crackly.
