Summer Steak Salad and Shrimp Flatbread

By

Now that’s a gorgeous flatbread full of shrimp and other delights.

Pair that with a summer steak salad and you’ve got a winning combination!

Angie McGowan over at Eclectic Recipes created these beautiful dishes – so why not try them at your home?

They’re light and perfect for those warm days outside. Plus, they’re really flavorful!

Visit Eclectic Recipes for the full lowdown on how to make these fab meals. For me, I’d serve the shrimp flatbread as an appetizer, then dig into the summer steak salad as my main dish.

BUT, you just might do the opposite! Have fun!

Basketball Bites

By

This Garlic Bread Steak Sandwich (otherwise known as Pittsburgh Cheese Steak) was pinned on Pinterest under the title “March Basketball Bites.”

I couldn’t agree with this representation more. You absolutely NEED something hearty and delicious to carry you through the awesome basketball going on right now.

Even if you’re a spectator.

Made with thinly sliced sirloin steak for ultimate flavor, this is much like the beloved Philly Cheese Steak, but with a twist.

Check out the full recipe for Garlic Bread Steak Sandwiches here. And be sure to savor every bite.

Your team needs you!

One bite and you’ll know this one is a slam dunk! (Yeah, I went there.)

Delicious Skirt Steak Recipe

By

Looking for something new and scrumptious to try at home? Look no further!

Try this decadent recipe for Skirt Steak with Garlic Confit and Broccoli Rabe from Chris Robertson, a New York sous chef.

I like the flexibility of his recipe because you are not limited to just skirt steak. Try another cut if the mood strikes you!

But the red wine marinade? Well, THAT is a must.

Have fun trying this one at home – you’ll be eating just like a sous chef! And this is a man who knows his food!

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!

Disappearing Menu Items

By

Some favorite dishes are fading fast from restaurant menus. But why?

Apparently, tastes change over time and, as is the case in this day and age, we simply don’t want to take the time for complicated recipes and cooking techniques.

An article at TheDailyMeal.com tells us about 11 menu items quickly disappearing. Two of which are Beef Stroganoff (yum!) and Salisbury Steak (double yum).

Sad, but the beautiful thing is . . . we can still make these dishes at home! And I don’t know about you, but I still do!

I love to use this Sweet Vidalia ground beef when I make Salisbury Steak. I mean, come on, the onions are already in it! Of course, you can use regular ground beef also and add your own onions to make it just the way you like.

Don’t depend on restaurants to dictate what “trends” you’ll be eating. Cook your favorites and let these classics live on!

Here’s one Beef Stroganoff recipe to try at home and here’s another.

Need to know how to cook a fab Salisbury Steak? Try this yummy recipe.

Read about all the disappearing menu items here and resolve to keep them alive in your home! I know I will!
