I Heart Steak

By

There are so many forms of love, so it’s only fitting on this Valentine’s Day to express our love for steak – or anything else for that matter.

Someone beat us to it with this wall mural professing sweet, sweet love to all things steak.

I can think of no greater art form than this.

I know, I know – Michelangelo and everything. But this is STEAK we’re talking about!!!

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! I hope you have steak in your life today.

Groundhog Meatloaf

By

It’s Groundhog’s Day!

And Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow, signaling 6 more weeks of winter.

If you believe in that sort of stuff.

Either way, it’s fun to get into the spirit of a seemingly meaningless holiday, so why not make a Groundhog Meatloaf in the shape of our favorite rodent?

See, if you didn’t like his prediction your mind can go all sorts of places while you’re eating this meal. And if you did like it; well, it’s a cute way to honor the little guy who brought you some hope and enlightenment.

Click to see this groundhog ground beef recipe here. And get creative! This winter’s going to be long, people, we’ve gotta do something to spice it up!

Christmas Steak

By

Steak is perfect for ANY meal – even Christmas dinner.

Apparently, Uncle Eddie (of Uncle Eddie’s Theory Corner) thinks so, too.

Here, he gives us explicit instructions on how to make the best Christmas Steak Dinner EVER.

He uses ribeyes in his recipe which makes him A-OK in my book. Enjoy Uncle Eddie’s facial expressions and descriptions, too. He’s a hoot!

And after you click here to see Uncle Eddie’s tips, let me know how your Christmas steak turns out!

Hanukkah Beef

Tonight Hanukkah begins.

It’s a gorgeous celebration with wonderful traditions.

For me, the food is what I like hearing about the most.

And this beef brisket is a traditional recipe that is sure to please. You can do it in the crock pot so it’s hassle free! And it creates its own gravy. Genius!

Holiday Beef Tenderloin

By

Oh, how I love the holidays!

But if you’re like me, you stress about family and friends coming to your house and making a big meal (or mess – whatever the case may be).

I think two turkey holidays in a row may be a bit much. That’s why this time around a beef tenderloin roast is in order.

It’s elegant. It’s tender. And it makes the whole house smell divine.

THAT says “holiday meal” to me.

Here’s a fantastic recipe with a full menu suggestion, including sides and dessert. You can’t go wrong with this meal.

And here is where I get my beef tenderloin roasts so I don’t have to worry that the beef might not be up to par. I KNOW it is.

There are all sorts of roasts to choose from – from Chateaubriand to prerubbed beauties. Choose what you like! It’ll all be good.

And let me know how your holiday meal turns out – minus the scene Aunt Edna made in the living room.

So, one holiday is down.

One to go.

Now’s the time to start planning for an amazing holiday meal that will surpass all others.

Wow.

Another Steak Convert

By

 

With Thanksgiving inching ever near, I always wonder about the poor souls who hate turkey. And I have found yet another personal narrative from a Thanksgiving steak eater that warms my soul.

In “Skip the Turkey, I’m Having Steak for Thanksgiving,” Russ shares his meals of Thanksgiving past – and lets us know that steak is on the menu this year.

I think this phenomenon is larger than we might have thought. And there may yet be secret turkey haters at even your family table.

They just haven’t summoned the courage to ruin the mystique of “Turkey Day.”

Read here to be regaled by Russ’s take on this traditional holiday meal – and the new traditions he’s started.

And what about you? Are YOU a steak convert?

Steakburgers Make Me Happy

By

This was the scene on Labor Day. Grilling. Chilling. Peacefulness.

Except for the minor mishap with that burger in front. Not sure what happened there. It somehow got split in two.

I got to eat that one. That’s what moms do.

But it tasted fantastic all the same.

Those other delights on the grill are bratwurst. We had ourselves a little combo going and our friends who came over thought they had died and gone to heaven.

We had a little football on TV, some meat on the grill and all was well.

THAT’S something to be thankful for. And that’s what we’ll be thinking on Sunday as we remember what happened in our country 10 YEARS AGO.

I can’t believe 9/11/01 was 10 years ago. It feels like yesterday in my mind. My kids weren’t even born then. But they know about 9/11 and we’ll discuss it again.

Just being here is something to be thankful for. And we’ll remember those who aren’t. I hope you will too.
