Perfect Steak With a Cooking Simulator


Researchers in Japan have come up with a brilliant way to practice your steak cooking skills – and never risk burning a great piece of meat again!

It’s a 3D cooking simulator that lets you feel the weight of the food as you move it around the pan. You can mix onions and a beautiful steak with a digital spatula.

So cool!

It lets you decide whether you want your beef anywhere from rare to well done and shows you how long it might take you to achieve your desired results.

Sounds like the only thing missing is the smell of a sizzling steak.

And the taste.

Check out the video of this awesome simulator here. Happy Friday, everyone!

Is Prime Rib Prime Beef?


…and other burning questions answered.

Have you ever wondered this yourself? (Answer:  Not necessarily. And probably not.)

The prime rib name refers to where the beef is cut from, not its grade.

But this article is a good refresher on beef grades and other beefy distinctions if you need a quick guide.

It always helps to brush up on your beef knowledge so that you can make the best choices for the recipes you try.

10 Most Expensive Burgers


Love burgers?

Well, after you read this article you can decide just how much you love burgers. How far are you willing to go for a to-die-for burger? Or, more accurately, PAY for such a burger.

The article compiles a list of the “10 Most Expensive Burgers in the World.” The kind of burgers set aside for royalty, heads of state and, maybe, unicorns.

Would you pay, say, $5,000 for one? That is, if it had foie gras and a bunch of other expensive goodies thrown in?

The Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas is betting you will.

Or somebody will.

Some of these concoctions on the list come with Kobe beef and are topped with Maine lobster and paired with a Dom Perignon.

But that one’s only $777. Your lucky number!

Sound tempting? Read on here for more jaw-dropping burger offerings. And, tell me, would you partake?

Meaty Discovery


A new study based on the discovery of an ancient child’s skull fragment suggests that man was a meat eater MUCH earlier than we thought – like 1.5 million years ago.

AND that he needed meat to survive.

I can tell you that I need meat to survive. I cannot imagine a vegan diet. It just wouldn’t work for me. I’d be starving and unfulfilled.

But this fascinating discovery suggests that early humans died from anemia if they did not eat enough meat. They actually had to have it to survive.


Read more on this interesting research here.

Then go enjoy yourself a meaty steak. It’s good for you!

I mean, I LOVE a man with style and sizzle.

Couldn’t you just eat him up?

Okay, I’m done with the meat puns now.

Well done, that is. *Wink*

Happy anniversary, James. You haven’t aged a bit. But if you had to, would you choose dry or wet aged?
