Steak Tips From Your iPhone!


Okay, this is so cool. Technology absolutely rocks.

The Kansas City Steak Company now has a free iPhone app that lets you select your favorite cut of meat (you know, T-bone, filet mignon, etc.), choose a thickness and how well done you’d like your steak and then the app’s timer will tell you how long to cook it and when to flip it.


Besides that, it has tons of recipes, grilling tips and a steak reference library. How awesome is that?

Go here, check it out, then download the app on your phone and have fun playing with it. It’s free and it’s my new obsession. 

Let me know what you think. I’m dying to know if you try it out this Labor Day weekend!!

Wine With Your Ribeye?


Oh, gorgeous ribeye, you excite me.

My favorite cut. Pair it with a great glass of wine and I’m in heaven. Literally. Heaven.

Recently, a wine panel in Dallas made recommendations for the perfect pairings of wines less than $25 with herb-garlic buttered ribeyes. That sounds like a dream job to me. But I digress.

Read all about their choices here. Then get your ribeyes and steak butters here for your own feast.

And . . . check out these wine pairings, too. You’re sure to find something that strikes your fancy!!
