    Steak!

    I just had my first steak in a year or more, and DAMN was it good. Asia is not a good place for red meat lovers, and beef is not a big part of my diet, but I was in a foreign supermarket tonight and couldn't resist.

    Sorry to all the vegetarians out there (some of whom are my friends, though a chef friend of mine once asked how I could be friends with vegetarians...), but you just don't know what you're missing out on.

    I bought a nice sirloin steak, and, on the advice of the same chef friend, rubbed some (not much) butter into it and let it sit for a while on my counter for a while. Then I just pan-fried it in a bit more butter and olive oil, and put it straight onto the plate, with just a bit of kosher salt sprinkled on top. A bit of couscous and broccoli on the side, and a Black Sheep Ale to drink. Just fantastic.

    Steak! So hot right now. Steak!

    I like cows, they taste good! I grilled up some t-bone steaks and shrimp this weekend. Marinated the steaks for a few hours in a mix of orange juice, worchestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar and garlic pepper. They were excellent. Paired the steak and shrimp with fresh asparagus spears in a honey dijon glaze. Yummy!

    Mine were medium-rare on the rare side. If I'm going to be a carnivore, I want proof that it was an animal

    Man, you've totally desensitized me. I read this as "that's how I like my children", and found myself thinking "Ok".

    Just buy a cow and toss it on the fire. Then go up and just carve chunks off. I am positive you will know it was and is still an animal. This is how Pup cooks most of his meals, if he even bothers to cook. I have heard he will just run up to a cow or chicken and take a bite.

    Yeah, there is kobe beef, but it's the exception to the rule -- and it didn't exist in Japan until the country tried to westernize itself after 1868. There is beef in Asian cooking, but not as much as pork, chicken, or fish. And getting a good steak, even if there is beef available, is really hard.

    Sweet! I'm totally trying that. Unfortunately, I don't live in my old neighbourhood anymore, where there actually were chickens walking around.

    Life is about hanging onto what you think is important and finding out what really is important.

    Bloody, yes -- but the Black Sheep was just lucky. I saw it at the store and decided to give it a try. Will definitely be buying more!

    When I was in H.S. we had an exchange student from Japan. The first night Masanori was here we thought we'd have a typical American dinner: t-bones, baked potatoes, green salad. At the time, we were a serious red meat eating family--every year at the county fair we bought a pig and half a steer--so it wasn't a big deal for us. Mom put the plate down in front of him and he jumped up and ran out of the dining room. We thought maybe we'd offended him, maybe he was a vegetarian and we didn't know.

    He came back with, wait for it, wait for it, his camera!

    I remember a few such dinners as a kid. Dad's employer sold to lots of foreign customers and he would being people home for dinner sometimes.

    Once he brought home a guy from Germany with great table manners. Dad grilled burgers for us, wanted to do the typical American dinner thing. The guy ate his burger with a knife and fork while my brother and I ate with our hands and stared!

    On another occasion, we took a Brazillian customer to a local steak house. Remember, this is in small town Oklahoma, where you can have anything you want to drink as long as it is iced tea or water.The guy orders his steak and orders orange juice to drink and when the steak is brought to the table, he asks for mustard. I am pretty sure the waitress thought he was crazy. Again, my brother and I just ate our steaks (using forks this time ) and stared.
