Searing Unthawed Steaks

By

This cool video from NYTimes.com. instructs us how to sear a steak that hasn’t been thawed. They even use a blowtorch!

If you have one handy. If you don’t, don’t sweat it. :)

This is a great way to prepare a steak if you like it rare. It seals in the flavor and keeps the steak crazy juicy.

Check it out and try it this weekend!!

Philly Cheese Steak Video

By

Oh, wow. This video shows us how amazingly easy it is to make our own Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches at home.

Seriously. It’s so easy it’s embarrassing.

Our Aussie friend takes boneless ribeyes in the video and slices them up really nice and thin.

BUT . . . you can make it even easier on yourself and use this beautiful Top Sirloin that’s already sliced for you. No cutting!

When you watch the video — which is less than two minutes long — see if you can keep your mouth from watering.

I couldn’t. The sight of that melted cheese and sizzling beef got to me.

Happy videoing!

Fresh vs. Aged Beef

By

Here’s an informative video about the benefits of choosing aged beef (think flavor and tenderness) over “fresh” beef.

The term is misleading because, sure, we all want something that is “fresh” but aged is definitely the better way to go when you’re talking steak.

It’s cool to know the science behind it all. And dude is wearing a lab coat so you know he knows stuff. ;)

Check it out and then YOU will be in the know!

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!

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!

Steak and Eggs Song

By

Family Guy is a funny show to me and it never ceases to create catchy phrases – and songs – that stick in my brain and won’t leave until I do an hour-long class of bikram yoga.

This is one of those.

Yeah, you’re welcome.

Steak and eggs and eggs and steak . . . just watch – you’ll be singing it for the next six weeks.
