Yet Another Lady Gaga Meat Dress?

By

She wore a meat dress to the Video Music Awards in 2010.

And now she has taken it on tour. To Tokyo.

In yet another stab at beefy couture, Lady Gaga performs not only clothed in meat, but surrounded by it also.

I have my doubts as to whether this latest round of costume is real.  Look closely in the photo and it all looks pretty plasticky.

The last couple of dresses didn’t fit quite as snugly and had the appearance of real meat. This one? Not so much.

But you decide. Is the meat for real this time? Or is her dress a beef imposter?

Meat = Masculinity?

By

So, a new study has found that men equate meat eating with masculinity.

What does this mean for us meat-eating women?

Not much.

I don’t think I’M particularly manly because I love red meat. But I do feel it gives me nutrients my body needs. And if that’s manly — so be it.

I do like that the study found that meat eating was associated with strength and power. Yes. I’ll toast to that.

Keep in mind that this study was what was in the “male” mind. No women were included as study subjects.

I have to admit I do agree that there is something inherently powerful about eating a steak. It must appeal to our base instincts as a mammal.

Click here to read more about this meat-eating study.

But what do you think? Is meat eating manly to you?

And the Steak Jumped Over the Moon

By

A little chart for ya on this educational Friday.

For the older kids, this chart’ll help you learn where each cut of beef comes from on the cow. Take notes, because there WILL be a test later.

And for you younger ones, well, just enjoy an age-old nursery rhyme involving a cow jumping over the moon.

That’s enough learning for today. My head hurts now.

And I’m hungry.

Happy Friday, everyone!

Kansas City Strip Steak Video

By

Oh. Yum.

It’s time to get outside and grill! Here’s a great video to help you get the most out of your Kansas City Strips.

It’s amazing how different cuts should be cooked slightly differently to enhance the cut’s flavor. You can really take it to a whole other level if you take the time to really know your beef.

Follow these instructions and see how it works for you!

Or…just watch and enjoy the beauty of a gorgeous steak. I just like to watch it sizzle and cook and imagine the smell.

Then, of course, it makes me want to go grill one.

Happy grilling!

Mom’s Favorite Steak Is…

By

Mother’s Day is over. Did you treat her right?

If there was a steak involved, I say a resounding YES!

Now, we traditionally think of steak as being Dad’s favorite, but if your mom is anything like me – Mom gives Pops a run for his money on this one.

So, tell me, what is your mother’s favorite cut?

I’m a mom and my kids know my favorite is a ribeye. Yummy, yummy ribeye.

But I’ll tell you MY mom’s favorite. Filet mignon. She likes hers butterfly cut.

But everyone’s different. So what’s YOUR mother’s ultimate cut of beef? I’d like to know. Tell me in the comment section!

Steak Fan Club

By

You know, in the age of the Internet, you can find just about ANYTHING you’re looking for – good or bad.

In the “good” department, I have found a Steak Fan Club that just might be something you’re interested in.

They have fun polls (ribeye is the favorite steak) and comment threads – and purty pictures of beef.

Everything a meat-loving girl or boy could want.

If that kind of thing strikes your fancy, head on over to FanPop.com and check out the steak club.

You just might find kindred spirits – or even your soulmate – over there.

Hey, common interests are important!

So check it out and let me know what you think!

Barbecue – Zac Efron Style

By

Okay, it’s really Santa Maria style, but with a Zac Efron twist.

The actor was recently featured in Parade magazine and asked to share a family recipe. Here is what the cutie, er, um, gentleman said:

“Growing up, we had a nice family dinner every night, and if we had people over, Dad would get on the grill. He is a bit of a chef, so he would always whip up something besides basic hot dogs or hamburgers. We liked trying different things, but this was a staple.”

This fantastic recipe features Top Sirloin marinated in salsa – yes, salsa! – and features a sweet and spicy flavor.

Click here for all the details on Zac Efron’s Santa Maria-style barbecue.

It’s National BBQ Month – so now is the perfect time to try this out!

Enjoy!

And, hey, if this gives you sweet dreams of Zac Efron … it’s not my fault.
