That’s one steak you don’t want to overcook – its juiciness and tenderness are essential to this particular cut.

Snow Steak!

By

Will this be you this weekend? Grilling in the snow?

I’ve done it. Nothing stops me from a juicy steak when I’ve got a hankering.

If you’ll be snow grilling this weekend, try one of these awesome steak rubs.

Because if you’re gonna trudge out in the snow you’d better make the steak go-o-o-od! And these rubs just might do the trick.

Have a great weekend, everybody!

BBQ Christmas Cheer

By

A bit of levity for your tree – and it’s got steak on it!

This glass ornament from TJ’s includes a BBQ grill with corn, a burger, steak and something green that is unidentifiable.

Anybody know what that is?

No matter. The burger and steak are what’s important here.

Don’t you want to hang them on your tree?

This officially qualifies as totally awesome.

Merry Steakmas?!?!!!

Musical Steak

By

This commercial makes me laugh. I always feel like there should be music and maybe fireworks and stuff when I cook steaks. It always feels like a celebration so why not put it to music?

Sometimes my husband serenades me – but that’s really not the same. Really.

Beef. It’s what’s for dinner. Check it out!

Steak At Home

By

I love it when this . . .

…and this…

…is the evening’s entertainment.

Seriously, give us a ribeye and a Kansas City strip steak and my hubby and I are occupied for hours.

Preparing a marinade, letting them sit, grilling and anticipating, eating and THEN talking about how good the steaks were.

That takes, what, all day long?

Oh, the joy of eating a beautiful meal! It’s one of life’s best gifts. And when I can enjoy it at home – it’s even better.

Here’s to simple pleasures!

P.S. Do you like the blue lights on the grill? They don’t do anything but they sure are cool at night!

Steak Joy

By

 

This is the sight that made me happy last weekend.

Gimme a steak on a grill and I’m a contented gal. A ribeye and a couple of Kansas City strips have such an effect on me.

What is it about the prospect of eating a beautiful steak that just sends me into orbit? Maybe it’s because I’m pretty much guaranteed I’m gonna like it.

That’s something I don’t find in my everyday life very often.

Plus, things just don’t bother me as much if I’m eating a steak. My kids could be chasing each other around, making extremely high-pitched noises – and I just don’t care as much as I would if I were eating, say, a Lean Cuisine.

I’m looking at this meal as an investment in my mental health. And it’s doing the trick.

Whatever gets you through the day, right?
