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!

Dancing Steak

Ever wonder what happens when you turn your back on the grill after you put your steak on?

First of all, NEVER turn your back on the grill!

But here’s an artistic interpretation of what goes on if you do…

Enjoy the weekend – and watch those steaks!

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!

This informative video shows us a simple method of how to grill a great steak. This guy is a purist and I really like that about him.

Sometimes you just want a simple, great steak. If so, this is your video.

Check it out and let me know how your grilled steaks turn out!

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?

Perfect Steak Cooker

By

There is something in the U.K. called the “Steak Appreciation Society.” I must delve into this more deeply.

But for now, here is something they have unearthed that may revolutionize your steak cooking from this day forward. . .

Or not. You decide.

It’s called the Perfect Steak cooker and it has a grill and timer to help you cook – you guessed it – that perfect steak every time.

It’s available on Amazon.com here:  http://www.amazon.co.uk/Perfect-Steak-temperature-vegetables-perfection/dp/B001644WLM

Note the U.K. URL. Apparently they have really good stuff over there that we don’t have. Jealous.

Check out this device and let me know what you think. In the meantime, I shall investigate this Steak Appreciation Society and report back.

Is it weird that I’m starting to talk like Harry Potter now? Hmmpf. I can’t help myself.

Keep Your Steaks Safe This Labor Day!

By

Don’t let this be you . . .

Keep your steaks and other grillable goodies safe this holiday weekend.

Because a steak is a terrible thing to waste.

Have a safe and relaxing Labor Day, everyone!

Steaky Labor Day Choices

By

I like great quality meat. But I like a good bargain, too. And I have to start planning for Labor Day now. It will sneak up on me.

So this Labor Day holiday I’m going to stock up on some of our neighborhood favorites – because inevitably, the neighborhood ends up in our back yard.

I really love that because I like being in control. I’m neurotic that way. We have burgers, steaks and chicken. Everyone’s happy.

We eat the food I like, listen to the music I enjoy – you get the picture. So why wouldn’t I want the festivities at my house? What’s a few crumbs on the counter among friends when I can make sure I have Teriyaki sauce for my ribeye? See how that works?

I’m looking forward to Labor Day because it’s that last grasp at a summer feeling. People are off work, it’s still warm out where we live and folks are in the mood to have fun. I like that.

So come on, Labor Day! I’m ready for ya!

I’m just not ready for you to be over.

Steak on the Water

By

 

We went to the river with family this weekend. And as we do not happen to live anywhere near a river, that required a five-hour drive.

With two boys.

Under the age of 10.

Plus a dog.

Once we arrived we felt we deserved something yummy – and to us, that means steak!

We fired up that old charcoal grill down by the river and grilled away while the kids and dog frolicked.

Paradise.

And, as we were on a RIVER, the serveware left a lot to be desired. A piece of aluminum foil had to do as our platter.

Because we’re classy like that, we set it on top of a cooler.

Come and get it!

What we learned is that we don’t care what it’s served on as long as we cook it ourselves and we can fix it up the way each of us likes it.

It was heavenly and we didn’t want it to end. But, alas, summer always does.

We made some great memories while it lasted.

And we’ll always have the steak . . .

Steak Success

By

Here’s some eye candy for ya . . .

. . . and some more . . .

We had fun this past weekend just grillin’ and chillin’ – doing what summer means to us. I’ll bet you feel the same way.

Those simple pleasures are what I live for.

We sat around and didn’t think once about what we didn’t have. It was all about the here and now. What was in front of us. And it seemed pretty good.

A nice steak cooked exactly the way I like it takes me to a place where everything is awesome. At least for that moment.

Until a beach ball hit our heads or our drinks were spilled by a flying Frisbee.

But you know what I mean.

If I can be happy just sitting and being – that’s success to me. And it felt good for the time I had it.

Thank you, summer. And thank you, steak.

Humidifier for Steaks?

By

Have you seen this gadget?

It’s a grill humidifier. You pour in any liquid whose flavor you’d like to see infused in your meat, set it on the grill next to your steak – and voila!

It flavors the meat while you grill.

I can see so many possibilities with this. Orange juice. Beer. Vodka steak?

I don’t know, would the vodka explode?

Anyway, it’s an interesting theory. I wonder if it truly does work in reality.

Has anyone ever tried this? It sounds yummy!

Did you have a great Father’s Day?

We did. You know why? ‘Cause we did this . . .

. . . and this . . .

It was a full-on frenzy of beef-eating magic.

The dads in my life were quite pleased. And stuffed. And celebrated.

I hope you had a fabulous one, too!
