Halloween: Grilled Anti-Vampire Steaks


Today is one of those days where you don’t want to get tangled up with a vampire.

It’s Halloween, man!

So to protect us against those nasty neck-biters, here’s a recipe with lots of garlic – you know, ’cause they hate garlic.

Grilled Anti-Vampire Steak – Halloween Recipe

Prep Time: 8 hours, 15 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 8 hours, 35 minutes
  • 1 Bottle of Zesty Italian Dressing
  • 4 Cloves of fresh garlic; crushed
  • 1 or 2 Grilling steaks
To make the marinade mix together the dressing and garlic. Marinade the steaks in the refrigerator for 8 hours. Remove the steaks from the marinade and grill to your liking, for me it’s medium-well.

Steak Muffins?



I truly had never considered this one before. But now? Well, the possibilities are endless!

This recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Muffins defies all boundaries of what a muffin should be. And yet, it doesn’t.

Why NOT serve tender meat in muffin form?

I am broadening my horizons and realizing that just because I’ve never done something before doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be done.

I’m growing.

Shall we grow together?

The recipe’s author, Gloria Hander Lyons, espouses the view that basically anything can be made into a muffin. Her booklet, Your Favorite Meals in a Muffin, is sheer genius.

Try it and let me know the verdict. Think of how handy these babies would be when you’re on the go!

I’m dying to know what you think!

Cooking Filet Mignon Video


Filet Mignon from Kansas City Steak Company on Vimeo.

The corporate chef at the Kansas City Steak Company has some great tips for us on how to cook a fantastic filet.

Thank goodness. I’m going to be listening up because I don’t always know what I’m doing at the helm of a grill. Any advice he has would be a good thing for me to pay attention to.

And I certainly wouldn’t want to ruin a perfectly beautiful filet mignon! That would be a crime.

Check out the video here and get the perfect filet to grill while you’re at it!

Happy grilling, everybody!
