Beer-Battered Steak Strips

This is a quick recipe for a new way of doing steak. It’s great for a finger food while you’re kicking back with some cold ones relaxing. You can pretty much have this prepped, cooked and cleaned up within an hour so why not try it one weekend. Mix up a bowl of ranch with some parmesan cheese and fresh black pepper and you have a great dipping sauce for these as well!

Samuel L Jackson is Breaking Bad

Samuel L Jackson has been doing alot of press for Alzheimer’s Association and as part of the promotion, he’s taken to Reddit for a top voted 300 word monologue contest. The first one he did was pretty good and you can check it out here or at the end of post. This new one he did takes the cake. It’s a monologue original given by Walter White in Breaking Bad, and hearing Sammy L recite it just takes it to a whole new level. It sounds so much like something he would say in Pulp Fiction that it’s unreal. Check out his Donation Site that was setup and make sure to follow him on Twitter.

“Bar Rescue” Episodes and Failures

I’ve been hooked on Bar Rescue since it first came out. It’s another show like Kitchen Nightmares where the host, Jon Taffer, turns over a bar that’s not doing hot and tries to set them up for success. It’s always the same formula: Hidden survellience of the bar. Some screaming at the employees for how shitty of a job they’re doing, introduce new menu/design/drink list and relaunch the new concept.


I always think of what happens with these places after the cameras and hype are gone. They all apparently do pretty well the first month after their relaunch but then the numbers go back to what they were originally. This is a list of the episodes showing which bars went are still open, changed back to their original name or closed their doors. Surprisingly, only a few shut down shop out of a good list of bars, and the majority seem to have stuck with it and gone on.

Sesame Tuna Steaks

You can find tuna steaks on sale from time to time, since they were on special at the store this weekend, I picked some up and made a great glaze, marinated them and threw them on the grill. Made for a tasty lunch along with a caesar salad. Tua only takes a few minutes which is great to make quickly.

Corned Beef Brisket

Nothing says Irish food like Corned beef and potatoes. For St Patty’s day this year, i made up 2 four pound Beef briskets and sliced them up real nice and thin. I’ve had more ruebens in the last 3 days than I have all year. But for the price, a cheap cut of meat like brisket can really be tenderized up by cooking it low and slow. The store had it on sale for about $2.50 a pound so I stocked up and between sides, sauerkraut, bread and meat, it cost me about $25 to make like 8 solid full meals. Not bad at all to help save some money for the Killian’s and Jameson.
