Summer Grill Fiesta

By

How was your Father’s Day?

Ours was pretty good, I must say! And I wasn’t even the one being celebrated!

My dad and the hubby got sufficiently feted and fussed over. And steaks were on the menu as you can see. It was a regular SUMMER GRILL FIESTA!

Someone was using his noggin when setting the permanent date for Father’s Day in June when the sun is shining and the grill is smoking.

I hope all you dads out there felt as cherished as ours did. A steak always says “I love you” at our house!

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!

Kansas City Strip Steak Video

By

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!
