Philly Cheese Steak Video

By

Oh, wow. This video shows us how amazingly easy it is to make our own Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches at home.

Seriously. It’s so easy it’s embarrassing.

Our Aussie friend takes boneless ribeyes in the video and slices them up really nice and thin.

BUT . . . you can make it even easier on yourself and use this beautiful Top Sirloin that’s already sliced for you. No cutting!

When you watch the video — which is less than two minutes long — see if you can keep your mouth from watering.

I couldn’t. The sight of that melted cheese and sizzling beef got to me.

Happy videoing!

Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale?

By

Your dad likes bacon, right?

Father’s Day is coming up so why not treat him to some tasty Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale?

You like him, you say? And you want to keep him around?

Okay, maybe not then.

But help me understand the thought process here. Breakfast in a bottle?

Did someone say, “If only I could bottle this taste” and then a lightbulb went off?

I’m not sure I’ll ever understand bacon in liquid form. But maybe that’s just me.

What do you think about this ale? Would YOUR dad drink it even if he really loves bacon?

Great Spread for a Sandwich Steak

By

Mayonnaise as a key ingredient is popping up everywhere these days.

It seems, the condiment is making a comeback — with a vengeance.

And, it has been suggested that Empire Mayonnaise’s walnut mayo is the perfect complement to a steak.

Perhaps a sandwich steak is in order? How else to enjoy this nutty spread that seems to please more and more meat eaters recently?

Click here to read Tasting Table’s take on the classic spread’s comeback.

And after you try it for yourself, let me know how you like it!

Fresh vs. Aged Beef

By

Here’s an informative video about the benefits of choosing aged beef (think flavor and tenderness) over “fresh” beef.

The term is misleading because, sure, we all want something that is “fresh” but aged is definitely the better way to go when you’re talking steak.

It’s cool to know the science behind it all. And dude is wearing a lab coat so you know he knows stuff. ;)

Check it out and then YOU will be in the know!

Has your dad been patient, valiant and kind all year?
