Beefy Billboard

This is hilarious!

Why not have some fun with your marketing?

And, hey, it’s probably true. You know, if you believe in that sort of thing…

Beef. It’s what the aliens are having for dinner.

Black Friday Beefathon!

By

Here we are on Black Friday. And you either love it or hate it.

But one way to save big on the beef you want and need for the upcoming holidays doesn’t require you to pitch a tent, stand in line – or even leave your house.

My favorite steaks are on sale and you can see some awesome Black Friday specials here.

Shop for steaks online and give ‘em as gifts this holiday, plus stock up for incredible meals over the holiday season. If you’re going to have houseguests these are always a big hit!

Seriously, it’s one of my top 10 favorite days of the year. A chance to save on my favorite beef without a stranger breathing down my neck in the checkout line.

Happy holidays, indeed!

Bacon-y Thanksgiving

By

Is this a work of art or what? It gives new meaning to “turkey bacon.”

How have I never thought of this before? I put bacon on top of my meatloaf, why not my Thanksgiving turkey?

What beautiful smells and flavors this will give forth!!!!

I hope you’re having a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with good food and good cheer. There is much to be thankful for!

And bacon is one of them.

Biggest Bacon Burger!

By

Check that out!

Recently, the Black Bear Casino Resort in Minnesota broke the world record for the largest hamburger. It is, in fact, a bacon cheeseburger weighing in at more than a ton.

A ton!

I don’t know if I’m enticed or really grossed out.

Can I be both?

A CRANE had to flip that bad boy. Now that’s a serious burger.

But the best part of all (besides the incredible teamwork and culinary skill that went into this feat)? After the world record was verified spectators got to eat that amazing creation.

At least none of it went to waste. THAT would have been a real tragedy.

“Tasteful” Art

By

Amazingly delicious meal, right?

Look closely, and you’ll discover that it’s not a photo but a startlingly life-like oil painting.

Above is a roast that’s good enough to eat. Among the Dutch artist Tjalf Sparnaay’s exquisite collection is a juicy burger and an overflowing sandwich.

Pray tell, where does he get his inspiration? :)

Well, I know. They’re the meals that keep people like you and me going. They’re the difference between a good day and a GREAT day.

If I had any artistic talent, I could easily take inspiration from them, too.

Click here to view these amazing works of art. They’re truly “tastefully” done!

Mmmm, Beef Island

By

There is a magical place in the British Virgin Islands named BEEF ISLAND.

I imagined in my mind it would be shaped much like a meat loaf. And, well, it kind of is. Check it out above.

The island earned its name during the plantation period when cattle were raised there. But the real reason I stumbled upon this treasure is that Beef Island does not observe Daylight Saving Time so they will not be “falling back” this weekend with most of us. I was trying to find out when I should set my clock back.

Seems they dance to a different drumbeat on Beef Island. And I dig that.

In fact, Beef Island just may be what dreams are made of. I’m daydreaming about eating a Porterhouse on a seaside veranda looking out on that water.

That’s paradise!

Post Halloween Comfort Food

By

It’s “The Day After.” Maybe you trounced around the neighborhood all night last night and your feet still ache today.

Or perhaps you stayed up all evening answering the door to ghosts and goblins.

Either way, it’s November 1st and this date is officially in the “comfort food zone.”

If you want to make it easy on yourself, you can go the bake and serve route with a lovely Beef Wellington (see above) that you can simply pop in the oven and serve.

Or . . . you can try this recipe for a Beef Pot Pie that’s even gluten free! Click here for more details on that.

Come down from that Halloween high with a beefy meal that’ll bring you back to earth. It’s a great place to be . . . the holidays are just around the corner!

Enjoy!

Perfect Steak With a Cooking Simulator

By

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!

Beef Question of the Day

By

This is something to ponder on your busy Thursday.

Or, if you’re like me, you’re just hungry and anything with the word “beef” in it catches your eye and makes you salivate.

Either way, this is a question worth exploring.

Carry on, beef warriors!
