Don’t Try This at Home (Seriously. Please.)


I like to read slightly off-center humor. Not dirty. Demented. There’s a difference.

So, I came across this post on a blog called “stupidramblings.”

Ah, yes, “stupidramblings.” He’s right up there with Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, and that chick who wrote “Sex and the City.”

The blog’s title alone piqued my interest.

Stupidramblings produced this beauty of a post called “Steak You Can Cut with Plastic Utensils.”

Intrigued? I was. So here it goes . . .

171. Steak You Can Cut with Plastic Utensils.
Marinate 5-6 steaks in:

the juice of two limes (with pulp)
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil (now with extra virgins!)
2 cloves crushed garlic
1/2 tsp salt
crushed red pepper to taste (use a little more than you think you’ll need–it gets cooked off)
a palmful of tarragon
two drops of orange extract
black pepper to taste (use a little more than you think you’ll need–it gets cooked off)
1 tbsp brown sugar
a pinch of crushed dill weed
a pinch of crushed coriander
3-4 grains of anise seed
and a pinch of cumin

Mix marinade well and pour over the steaks. Marinate overnight.

Cook (BBQ preferably) on very high heat until the inside is slightly pink.

Invite your neighbors over and throw the steaks at them…

It was that last part that had me scratching my head. Throw them at your neighbors? Huh?

But the recipe looks amazing. And people actually commented that they tried it and thought it was perfecto.

Can you really cut the steak with plastic utensils? You be the judge.

Just don’t throw them at your neighbors.
