Barbecue – Zac Efron Style

Okay, it’s really Santa Maria style, but with a Zac Efron twist.

The actor was recently featured in Parade magazine and asked to share a family recipe. Here is what the cutie, er, um, gentleman said:

“Growing up, we had a nice family dinner every night, and if we had people over, Dad would get on the grill. He is a bit of a chef, so he would always whip up something besides basic hot dogs or hamburgers. We liked trying different things, but this was a staple.”

This fantastic recipe features Top Sirloin marinated in salsa – yes, salsa! – and features a sweet and spicy flavor.

It’s National BBQ Month – so now is the perfect time to try this out!


And, hey, if this gives you sweet dreams of Zac Efron … it’s not my fault.

Adam Levine+Steak=Yum Yum

What do the band Maroon 5, honey and an amazing ribeye have to do with each other?

Don’t go there. Some of you were going THERE.

The answer is lead singer Adam Levine’s recipe for his Signature Steaks.

Drizzled in honey, he likes his ribeyes seasoned with Dijon mustard as well as some other goodies.

Mwah! Sounds fantastic.

If he cooks as well as he sings, this one’s a winner. I’m counting on it.

Click here to see Adam’s full recipe. Now, if I could just get Adam to come over, make us some steaks and serenade us – THAT would be excellent.
