The amazing steak at Casa Escobar in Antigua, Guatemala. 

Three of us shared a platter that included Sirloin, Strip Steak, Short Ribs, and Tenderloin. The steaks came to the table still sizzling, the wine was good, and the service was incredible. The meal debuted at #2 in my all-time restaurant meal power rankings. As my manager at work would say: “That’s STRONG!!”

Bison Strip Steak and Potatoes with Blue Cheese.
The Browns actually won while I was eating this a few Sundays ago. If all I have to do for us to win is make this, I can get on that bandwagon…

Steak Bowl at ShopHouse in Washington, DC.
Made my return to the lone location of Chipotle’s little brother today. Still a huge fan of the spicy corn. And I remembered from a previous visit that I did not like the noodles, so I went with Jasmine rice.

Boneless Ribeye I made for Sunday dinner on the weekend of my friend’s birthday. Because I’m a good friend like that.
Also, I’ve got to say that Sunday dinner is becoming one of the highlights to my week. A random cast of characters comes over each week and I have all day to think up and create some good eats. For the first few weeks, we had a vegetarian among us so I made everything except one protein meat-free, and it was a cool way to kind of expand our horizons.

How to make the prison feast from Goodfellas
One of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies. Now I think I have to set three hours aside this weekend just to watch this one again. Come to think of it, that sounds like a perfect amount of time for the sauce to cook…

fudehouse:

flip the script.  the best steak of your life.

I’ve used this cooking method twice now. Great results both times. And just like he says, it really does give you the best steak of your life. Pair that with good friends, beer, kale salad, potato and three-pepper hash, corn, and Mally’s chocolate-covered Oreo’s; and you’ve got one hell of an evening.

Phở tái nạm gầu at Superior Pho in Cleveland, Ohio
Noodle soup with Eye-Round Steak, fat Brisket, and Flank
I’ve only been here once, as opposed to the three times I’ve been to #1 Pho. But I’d have to say that this broth was more flavorful, and that there was more (albeit smaller pieces of) meat.
So I’ll give Superior a slight edge over #1; but I’m easily swayed by whatever I have last, so don’t put too much faith in that. Just know that they’re both good and that you can’t really go wrong.
