Father’s Day is coming and your Father deserves something delicious and unique to eat. Make him a Himalayan Salt Seared Steak this year; he will be overjoyed from the delicious flavor. Subtle salt brings out the beefiness of the sirloin steak making for a most tender bite. This will win you uber-points and makes the perfect gift for Dad, much better than a BBQ themed tie for sure!

Sous Vide Steak

Sous Vide Steak

with Red Wine Reduction

Posted on January 17, 2017
If you’ve been keeping up with the latest and greatest, you have probably heard of a cooking technique called Sous Vide. It’s 2017’s biggest kitchen trend. Thanks to my portable Sous Vide cooker, Joule, by ChefSteps, I have been able to keep up with the latest and greatest in gastronomic trends. Using a grill in conjunction with cooking Sous Vide just makes sense. Cooking anything using this technique means some very tender and tasty food, however, meats will need caramelization on the outside for a really toothsome flavor. That’s where the grill comes in. It’s perfect for giving you a caramelized crust on the outside! Using the infrared side burner to sear off the steak after cooking Sous Vide just takes this Sous Vide Steak with Red Wine Reduction to the next level.

Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet

Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet

With Squashed & Crispy Roasted Potatoes

Posted on January 21, 2016
When I visited the Water Buffalo Festival in September I got my hands on a bunch of great cuts of buffalo meat. The filets have been languishing in my freezer since then, but I felt the need to whip out a good steak recipe. That's when we had Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet With Squashed & Crispy Roasted Potatoes. The intense pepper and the succulent meat paired beautifully. The pepper didn't overpower the unique, beefy-gaminess of the meat; which can happen often if you're not careful. Serving this with a dollop of sour cream on the crunchy potatoes helped too. That little bit of sour cream mixed with the juices and you got a sauce that instantly cooled the heat of a rogue peppercorn. Naturally the tenderloin (filet mignon) melted in your mouth too. Such a simple and decadent meal.

Water Buffalo Strip Steaks

Water Buffalo Strip Steaks

With Double Baked Potatoes

Posted on October 22, 2015
Water Buffalo Strip Steaks come from a water buffalo, not a man in a unicorn mask, he was selling bath stuff. They're lower in cholesterol and higher in mineral content than beef. This is good. They're flavorful, slightly gamey, but not overpoweringly so. Water Buffalo steaks are just plain good. (So is their milk by the way). At the Water Buffalo Festival in Sterling, I had the intense pleasure to try smoked Buffalo ribs, and other interesting substances. I was immediately hooked and bought some of everything. When it came time to grill these steaks up, I wanted the meat to shine, so I seasoned simply, as you know I love to do when it comes to steak, and went to town. Check your specialty butcher for interesting meat like Water Buffalo.

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks

With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

Posted on August 18, 2015
I wanted to make something special for my friend who came to visit our house. So we went to the farmer's market downtown for some special food. We found bison at one booth, and all of the fresh produce at the others. I even got a basket of peaches that are totally blowing my mind right now. For dinner we made Mushroom And Onion Bison Steaks With Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes. Everything came from the farmer's market. It was glorious.

Grilled To Perfection

Posted on December 02, 2014
Imagine, if you will, slicing into a Dry Aged, Wet Rubbed NY Strip Steak, grilled to perfection over high heat and flame. It was rubbed in a wet rub and allowed to soak in that flavour before being kissed by flame and served over a bed of grilled asparagus.

Marinated Flank Steak

Marinated Flank Steak

With Steak Cut Potatoes

Posted on September 16, 2014

It's always good to try something different. That is what I did with this recipe. First, I purchased a cut of steak that I don't often get. The flank steak is usually mis-cooked and often tough and not so great. But like many things, just needs some tender loving care. Flank is porous and benefits from the marinade treatment. The other thing I tried was some different photography techniques. I'm not sure I like how the dark and moody thing came out. But the photos make the food look tasty. I guess that's what matters.
