Grilling Tips Video

By

It’s National Grilling Month! To make sure we get the most of out this most sacred month, here’s a video from the corporate chef at the Kansas City Steak Company.

He shows us the best way to grill our steaks, keep our grill clean and create a fantastic meal.

I know I’m going to need this advice because we’ve been grilling up a storm this month – steaks, burgers, kabobs – and I see no stopping ahead.

Check out the video and celebrate National Grilling Month in style! :)

Ribeye is a Bone-In Beauty

By

Have you ever experienced this slice of heaven?

I mean, a bone-in ribeye. Have you ever had one?

It’s slightly different. Meatier, more flavorful. The bone gives it a boost.

Plus, it’s just a really beautiful piece of beef. Just look at how elegant it looks plated like that.

A beautiful sight to behold.

This gorgeous treat is the Kansas City Steak Company’s June Item of the Month.

It might be the perfect time to step out of your box and try it if you haven’t.

Or indulge again if this isn’t your first rodeo.

Whatever the case, this beaut is calling you. And me.

We might as well get them while they’re on sale!

Enjoy!

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!

The Steak Debates

By

What do the ongoing political debates have to do with steak?

EVERYTHING.

See, in my world, everything has something to do with steak. And, it seems, I am not alone.

Case in point:  This excerpt from a CNN.com article about the recent debate between the Republican candidates…

“This was Rick Santorum’s first debate with front-runner status. That means it was his time to get grilled like a fine Kansas City steak. And I wouldn’t say he came out of it like a filet.”

Gorgeous word imagery. I’m getting hungry just thinking about how Santorum did.

And yes, all things lead back to steak. This was a hilarious analogy. And oh so fitting. But this is not the first time steak has played a part in the political landscape. Far from it.

All steak and no sizzle? Seen that one before. Steak dinners shared by heavy-hitters? Check. Celebratory steak barbecues? Every time.

It just goes to show you, steak is all around us – and you don’t have to look very hard to find it. Especially in the political arena.

And frankly THAT’S the kind of world I want my children to inherit. Let’s just see who plays the steak card best this time around.

Beefy 12 Month Plan

By

I’m thinking this might be for me. It might take all the guesswork out of meal planning and ensure that I have something tasty on hand at all times.

It’s a 12 Month Plan with pretty awesome choices like Beef Wellington, T-bones, Prime Rib Roast, Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon…

But…I am going to send them to myself. It’s a gift to myself that will keep on giving.

Seems like a smart way to make sure I’m ready to go with some amazing menu items. I’m all about making life easier for myself this year and this seems like a great option.

Pre-planning. What a concept! I wish I had fully embraced it before. I might have saved myself a whole lot of heartache – and scrambling. Check it out here if you want to try it, too.

Here’s to a less-harried 2012!!!

Steaks On Your Phone

By

 

So THIS is where I get all my meat – the Kansas City Steak Company. My beloved ribeyes always taste better when they’re from KC Steaks.

And I told you a while ago about their cool free iPhone app that has a steak timer and cooking instructions to help you make a perfect steak.

NOW, they have a new mobile website that makes it so, so simple to order steaks right from your phone.

Did you hear that? You can order steaks from your phone! What kind of world are we living in? I feel like we should all be wearing aluminum foil suits and driving around in flying cars like in “The Jetsons.” This stuff is so cool!

Plus, that iPhone app now has this new mobile site incorporated right into it. I love it when people make things easier for me, don’t you? It doesn’t happen very often.

So, if you’re on a smart phone, go to this website right now! Every steak imaginable is there. Even Kobe beef. Then, download the free app and all the tools you need for a dinner party that’s da bomb will be right at your fingertips!

Technology certainly does rock!

Cooking Filet Mignon Video

By

Filet Mignon from Kansas City Steak Company on Vimeo.

The corporate chef at the Kansas City Steak Company has some great tips for us on how to cook a fantastic filet.

Thank goodness. I’m going to be listening up because I don’t always know what I’m doing at the helm of a grill. Any advice he has would be a good thing for me to pay attention to.

And I certainly wouldn’t want to ruin a perfectly beautiful filet mignon! That would be a crime.

Check out the video here and get the perfect filet to grill while you’re at it!

Happy grilling, everybody!

Oh Kobe You’re So Fine…

By

THIS is where it’s at.

Or so I’ve heard.

You see, I haven’t actually had the pleasure of immersing myself in a Kobe steak yet.

I think it’s because I get stuck in my ways. When I eat a steak I end up cooking my go-to cut.

And, I guess I just haven’t gotten around to trying Kobe. It’s just inertia, really.

I’ve heard such amazing things about it you’d think I would have rushed out and tried it.

I’ve heard about its incredible marbling, flavor and tenderness. This photo is of boneless ribeye. Mmmm.

I should treat myself. Okay, I will. Yeah, thanks for the encouragement!

I WILL!!!

Have YOU tried it? If you have, is it the only steak you’ll eat now?

Top 10 Steak Recipes

By

If you’re here, you love a good steak.

But we all have our own ideas about what makes a steak great. I like a ribeye, thinly cut, medium well with Teriyaki sauce. Don’t judge.

Some people like A-1 sauce on a thick, very pink Kansas City strip.

I don’t mock them – just like I hope they don’t mock me. There’s room for all of us, right?

Check out this list of “Top 10 Steak Recipes.” This list includes greatness like herb-crusted filet mignon, carne asada and marinated London Broil. My mouth is watering right now.

Now, I’m not sure what qualifies these particular ones as THE top 10, but it’s a good place to start.

And if you want really good meat, get it here.

What are YOUR top 10 steak recipe favorites???

Wagyu Kobe Beef – Oh My!

By

So, this stuff is truly high quality. It’s for serious, serious beef lovers. Luckily, that’s me!

And YOU – if you’re reading this! *wink*

The story goes that there is a specific line of Wagyu cattle bred in Kobe, Japan, that is out-of-this-world tender. There are all sorts of stories (possibly tall tales) about them being brushed several times a day by their handlers and being fed a fine quality beer daily.

I don’t know about all that, but I do know that this beef has been a delicacy for many, many years. Someone was bright enough to bring some of the line over to the U.S. to breed it here. And the rest was history.

My fave place, Kansas City Steak Company, now has this Wagyu American Kobe beef so now I can enjoy it at home rather than some steak joint where they won’t have my Teriyaki sauce.

Hey, that’s the way I like it and it’s my house.

I cannot wait to get my hands on a Kobe ribeye. The intense marbling is what makes these steaks so tender and flavorful. Really, a higher stratosphere of quality. Just what a steak lover is always looking for.

You can click here to see their selection and try some for yourself. Take pictures and let me know how your experience is!

And if you’re in the giving mood this holiday season, these babies make quite an impressive gift.

My mouth is watering now just thinking about it . . .
