Everything Ribeye!

By

Oh, the glorious ribeye! How I love you!

It’s my absolute favorite cut. It’s tender, but rich and hearty. Just the way I like it!

With or without the bone, it’s sliced from the prime rib. And so, so succulent.

The bone has been rumored to give the meat even more flavor, but for me, I prefer the simplicity of boneless. Beauty is, you get to decide for yourself!

Want to pair a ribeye with a nice wine? Try a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon for maximum impact. This wine pairing chart is fun to peruse when cooking a beautiful steak dinner.

Trying out a ribeye soon? Watch the ribeye video on this page. It’s a wonderful resource for chef tips and advice on cooking your ribeye perfectly. Check it out and heed this advice! :)

And when you’re ready to dive in, the ribeye recipes here are to die for! Try your hand at whipping up some Chipotle Buttered Ribeye Steaks or even Spicy Ribeyes Topped with Blue Cheese. You’ll be a pro in no time!

All this ribeye talk is making me hungry. I know what I’m having for dinner. How about you?

My “Final Four” – 4 Ways to Top Your Steak

By

It’s down to the Final Four.

Oh, yeah, and there’s basketball on TV, too.

MY Final Four while you’re watching all those games?

Easy! Steak toppers!

They’re a fun way to dress up a steak for a different twist. So here we go:

#1. Steak Butter.

Delish. Flavorful, fresh and drizzled just right. Mmmm.

#2. Fruit.

You heard me. Fruit. Mango, lime – just try it! You might be surprised!

#3. Salsa.

Spoon some on top of a piping hot steak and just think of all the spicy flavors that will come alive.

#4. Cheese.

It’s not just for Philly Cheesesteaks anymore. No, siree! Blue cheese, gorgonzola, feta. Something that crumbles works well. Although I’m not opposed to the melted, gooey variety either.

Want to know more about my Final Four? Click here to get some great tips for using these delicious steak toppers.

They’ll help fuel you up to root on your favorite basketball team as it comes down to the wire!

2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

3. In a preheated skillet, add enough oil to coat the bottom of the pan, and then add the 2 T of butter. 

4. Just when you see the first wisps of smoke, add the steaks to the pan, making sure to not overcrowd the pan. When the steak is properly seared flip and let sear for one more minute.

5. Add the shallots to the pan, and then put the pan in the oven. When the steaks are cooked to their desired temperature, pull them out and put them on a plate to rest, while they are resting. Divide the herbed butter into 4 and place one piece on tope of each steak. Serve after 5 minutes of resting.

Food Superstitions

By

This Friday is a Friday the 13th. So what better time to plan ahead for that superstitious day than now?

Of course I relate everything to food so here’s what comes to mind for me…

Garlic!

The old thought goes that garlic will ward off bad spirits and prevent someone from giving you the “Evil Eye.”

Want to keep away demons, werewolves and vampires? Get a little garlic.

So for me, I’ll make it easy on myself and just cook with the stuff. How about Garlic Steaks? Yes, please!

This steak recipe makes the most sense on a day filled with superstition. And, hey, it couldn’t hurt, right?

Try it – just to be sure you won’t be visited by any vampires this Friday. :)

Steak Taste: Is Less…More?

In this thought-provoking post, Mike tells us about his minimalist theory when it comes to steaks.

And he (like me) definitely knows that no matter what, his own grill makes the best steaks.

I’m pretty sure if Mike and I ever met in real life we would have lots to talk about.

He dabs a luscious amount of steak butter on this beautiful strip steak. It’s the perfect combination of substance and flavor.

Read here how he prepared this eye-catching piece of beef to perfection. Muah!

Oh, gorgeous ribeye, you excite me.

My favorite cut. Pair it with a great glass of wine and I’m in heaven. Literally. Heaven.

Recently, a wine panel in Dallas made recommendations for the perfect pairings of wines less than $25 with herb-garlic buttered ribeyes. That sounds like a dream job to me. But I digress.
