I’m totally one of those people that quietly scoffs when their friends post on Facebook and Twitter every time they sneeze, fart or eat a good meal – but here I am doing the same thing. Call me a hypocrite and justly so, but this was a GOOD meal featuring some BFC sponsor/vendor product.
I found myself in the neighborhood of Paulina Meat Market yesterday afternoon, dropped in, and was inspired to purchase a few serious steaks. Michael came over for dinner and we fired up the grill.
I’d picked up a Tomahawk Chop (almost 2lbs) and a Rib-Eye steak from Paulina. Michael assembled a seasoning mix inspired by some dry-rub recipes he’s been playing with. Both cuts were coated, allowed to sit for a bit, then thrown on the grill. Finished with a chimichurri sauce on the side. INCREDIBLE. Thank you Paulina for introducing us to the epic Tomahawk Chop.
Meanwhile, I had some jalapeno peppers in the fridge. We cored them out and stuffed them with cooked smoked sausage, wrapped them in bacon, stuck toothpicks through them and tossed them on the grill. The Bacon was of course NUESKE’S given to me at my recent visit to Nueske’s Headquarters. Now I’m not one for hyperbole (ok, maybe I am), but these were seriously the BEST EVER grilled bacon-wrapped jalapenos I’ve ever had – EVER.
I’ll let the pics say the rest.
Thanks for reading.
