5 Links to Read Before Grilling Steak

June 11, 2014

Each week, we’ll be sharing a comprehensive list of links to help you master something new in the kitchen. Culinary greatness, here you come.

Today: Show dad how much you care -- with grilled steak.

Raise your hand if you made reservations at a fancy steakhouse for Father's Day. You know what sounds better, though? Staying at home -- far away from the overpriced prix fixe menu -- and recreating the meal yourself. All you have to do is head to your local butcher, pick out the perfect cut, and grill it like a pro. He (and every other guest) will be so impressed that he won't even notice that you forgot a card.

YOUR reciepe does not say if the RIB EYE is cooked or nont! It says, "...COOK in skillet for 5 minutes"! That could be RAW RIB EYE or a COOKED RIB EYE! Coem on dudes get SPECIFIC! Alton Brown is kicking yer azzez! RIB EYE TACOS ARE KICK ASS ..... BUT YOUR WAY IS SO ABBREVIATED WE CAN'T TELL UP FROM DOWN~! GET Yo' CHIT TOGETHER!
