It’s almost Labor Day. And somewhere it’s written that one must eat beef on Labor Day weekend.

So, why not treat yourself to a gorgeous, grilled steak on your day of rest?

Hurricane Hanger Steak


I don’t normally make requests, but this seems very necessary right about now. So here goes . . .

I would like for Hurricane Irene to leave us all alone and go about her business elsewhere – like, out in the middle of the ocean.

There, I have put my request in to the universe and for extra good mojo I give you this tasty recipe for Hurricane Hanger Steak. Do not use it this weekend if you are in the path of the storm. Please seek shelter!  Save this meal for when you have your “we’re-okay-the-hurricane-didn’t-get-us” story to tell over dinner.

And, when everybody’s safe and ya wanna try this, just remember “hanger” is in the name, but you can use any cut you like, really.

A word of caution about the recipe, the marinade is quite sweet so be prepared for that.

Then, go and cook this meal in good health and may it bring good karma to our friends in Irene’s path this weekend.

Irene, you are not welcome here. But your steak is.

Stay safe, friends!

Healthy Steaks


Love steak?

Who doesn’t?  (Don’t answer that.)

Like being healthy?

Who wouldn’t?

Oprah, over at (via Dr. Katz), gives us tips on cooking a healthier steak.

I like that. I think we’re all trying to find ways to stay healthy and cook healthier.

Hint:  Use beer for your marinade.

Hey, if cooking with beer makes my steak healthier – sign me up!

Check out the recipe and special tips here.

And then go cook that healthy steak!
