Best Steak Cuts for Grilling

By

The Huffington Post has a great slideshow with the “Best Steak Cuts for Grilling.”

I always like to see what other people choose for this category. Porterhouse (see scrumptious photo above) was one of their choices.

What are yours?

My all-time favorite is the ribeye. So, so flavorful!

Check out the best steak cuts slideshow here and you can OOOHH and AAAHHH over the photos like I did. Then grill your favorite!

Enjoy!

Snow Steak!

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!

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!

Kansas City Strip Steak Video

Oh. Yum.

It’s time to get outside and grill! Here’s a great video to help you get the most out of your Kansas City Strips.

It’s amazing how different cuts should be cooked slightly differently to enhance the cut’s flavor. You can really take it to a whole other level if you take the time to really know your beef.

Follow these instructions and see how it works for you!

Or…just watch and enjoy the beauty of a gorgeous steak. I just like to watch it sizzle and cook and imagine the smell.

Then, of course, it makes me want to go grill one.

Happy grilling!

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!
