Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013, In : Cooking 
I know you've had salisbury steak before. We all know how it's typically made; floured hamburger patties smothered in cream of mushroom soup. Yeah, yeah. Good but not great. The same old same old dish you've had since you were in grade school. But this is going to be MUCH different! I promise.

We've tried plenty of recipes for salisbury steak with no improvements. Then one day, I decided to do it a little bit differently and try it with a version of the way I make my meatloaf. There's no mushr...

Secrets for Tender Steak

How do you cook tender steak? Why is it that some steak almost falls off the bone whereas other meat is tough and stringy and could be a close twin to old shoe leather?

Best Ways To Cook Flank Steak

Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013, In : Cooking 
It used to be that flank steak was one of the more affordable steaks and people thought of it as less than gourmet.

However, today, it is a culinary basic ingredient for many chefs and home cooks as well. 

Why? Supply and demand is the only explanation for why this relatively tough piece of beef has become so popular.

Flank steak is extremely popular for an ingredient in fajitas but it actually got its start in popularity with the famous dish London Broil. It seems after this culinary delight ca...

Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013, In : Cooking 
One of my favorite things in the whole world is a hot, thick, juicy steak. Seared golden brown and tasty on the outside, juicy and pink on the inside just waiting to be devoured. While we are dreaming why not add a thin beefy pan sauce ladled on top for just that extra bit of deliciousness.

As you can see I love steaks and up until recently I have been a straight up "griller", if I cooked a steak at home it was on the grill. Not this is a bad way to cook a steak, quite the contrary, but I was ...

Are Omaha Steaks Worth the Cost?

Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013, In : Cooking 
Who mail orders meat?  Well apparently Omaha Steaks – a company that has been in business since 1917 – has a pretty fanatical mail order business. Omaha Steaks also operates a number of retail outlets across the country.

Omaha justifies their prices with the claim their steaks are “Gourmet Quality”… and at $20 a pound for sirloin I would hope so!  I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy the occasional steak, although I am not usually a red meat eater.  And yes there is definitely a diffe...

How to cook a flat iron steak

Posted by on Saturday, July 6, 2013, In : Cooking 
The flat iron steak is a relative newcomer in the butchers counter, and it wasn't until a few years ago at a university of Nebraska program looking at undervalued cuts of meat that anyone even realized the potential this cut of meat had!

The flat iron steak comes from the blade roast of the beef shoulder or chuck. There is a thick and ornery looking piece of connective tissue that runs smack dab through the center of it, and this connective tissue was the very reason that nobody had ever reall...

We would have roast potatoes, mashed potatoes and three vegetables with the stuffed steak.

Mum could only afford Round Steak most of the time but occasionally she made it with strip loin or sirloin...

Well, to answer that question there are a couple factors that need to be discussed first, because it depends. It depends on the thickness and weight of the rib-eye steak, temperature of the fire, and how you like your steak cooked. Lets first go over the "doneness" of a steak.

There are two standards that you can base your opinion off of. There is a Chef Standard and a USDA Standard. I personally like the Chef's Standards, you will probably have more chances of food born...

For summertime grilling and specifically with the 4th of July right around the corner, many of us naturally reach for pricy steaks--rib-eyes, filet mignons--but they aren't the only cuts in the case.

In the Kitchen, Use The Meat Mallet or Pounder for More Than Tenderizing Steaks

Posted by on Monday, July 1, 2013, In : Cooking 
Before I go any further, I want to be sure to mention a couple of things. The first is that the meat pounder is mainly known as a meat tenderizer, or sometimes it's called a meat mallet.

When you search "meat tenderizer" online, though, you'll see results for both the pounding type tenderizer, and mixes or marinades that will break down the meat through food and other chemical reactions.

So, instead of calling it a meat tenderizer, I'll call it a meat pounder or mallet.

The other thing is that i...
