Salisbury Steak Surprise


Let me just be the first to say that I don’t normally like recipes with the word “surprise” in them.

It conjures up images of mystery meat or something sinister.

But THIS surprise is a GOOD surprise.

This Salisbury Steak recipe includes bleu cheese in the center.

A burst of unexpected flavor that says, “Hello, taste buds!”

But in a good way.

Check out the recipe here and let me know what you think. Can you really ever go wrong with ground sirloin?

I think not.

Enjoy this surprise!

10 Best Beef Accompaniments


We all have our favorite garnishes, sauces and the like when it comes to beef.

Our friends at Shortlist have put together a list of “The 10 Best Accompaniments to Beef” – and there’s not a bottle of A1 in sight.

Granted, they are British, and tastes are just slightly different from the States. But I’ll have to go with them here. These are all pretty tasty.

And I never liked A1 anyway. But YOU be the judge. What do you think of these beef accompaniments?

Maybe you’ll find the perfect meal for this weekend among them. Check them out here!

Ultimate Steak Manual


Shortlist.com has created an “Ultimate Steak Manual” so that we can all prevail in the “battle of the beef.”

Translation:  You can one-up your friends when it comes to cooking the best steak dinner.

And that’s a cause I can get behind.

But, in order to create the ultimate steak experience, one must first educate oneself on all matters beefy.

Here, the Shortlist provides us a guide so that we can get a leg up on the competition. From knowing your cuts of beef to pairing the perfect wine, this guide has it all.

An educated competitor is one to be reckoned with. So read up, my friends – then get out there and win the battle of the beef!

Yes, A Bacon Coffin


So if you’ve been following what’s going on in bacon news (and I know that you do), you’ve no doubt seen the new bacon coffin on the market from J & D’s.

If not, you’re in for a treat! The above beauty can be all yours for a mere $3,000 and you can be assured that you will rest in heavenly bacon glory for all eternity. Amen.

There’s even a Facebook page dedicated to bacon coffins.

Could this possibly be a case of taking things too far?

Like going to a job interview decked out in Lakers gear? Or painting your house Boise State colors? Or naming your kid “DIRECTV” so you’ll be sure to get free satellite service forever?

I mean, my family can attest to the fact that I LOVE BACON. Just come over on Sunday morning and see if YOU get the last piece. Hint:  It’s mine.

But there is a limit. And I think spending the afterlife in a bacon-themed casket goes well beyond it.

What do you think? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Do you think people should get a life and let people have their fun?

I wanna know!
