No reservations needed for a fancy restaurant…instead spend the day being ‘king of the charcoal pit’. So, I’ve got some great ideas to help fulfill the grill master in you to get inspired and fired up come meal time!
You gotta love living in Texas! There is a rodeo almost every single weekend at Tejas Steakhouse & Saloon, just north of 1604, not to mention the best steak in all of Texas! That’s according to Texas Monthly and thanks in large part to the brand — HeartBrand Akaushi.
Breathtakingly beautiful…tranquil…just a few of the words used to describe the Houstonian’s 18-acre property in Uptown. It’s home to an award-winning spa, fitness club and unforgettable fine dining at Olivette! Recently I recently linked with Executive Chef Neal Cox for the scoop on some brand new menu items centered around quality beef from Augustus Ranch in Yoakum, Texas.
Treat yourself to an afternoon, an evening at one of the finest steakhouses in the entire country! I’m talking about Bohanan’s Prime Steaks and Seafood, run by Executive Chef Mark Bohanan in historic downtown San Antonio.
Executive Chef Michael Pearce is out to save you time and money with these value-added option meals from Ben E. Keith. Their Southwest Chopped Salad is so easy to do, and as an added bonus makes such a beautiful presentation…the vibrant mixture of veggies is stunning!
When was the last time you visited a true Texas Roadhouse right in the center of town? There’s a little gem on the side of the road (and on the way to the rodeo) that locals have known about for years and visitors to San Antonio are always glad to find—Josephine Street Café.
Fire up that backyard grill of yours and get it nice and hot. Texas this time of year can only mean one thing: it’s time to tailgate! Season your steaks with salt and pepper or kick it up a notch with some Cajun seasoning. Everything but the steak: Slice the onion, tomato and mozzarella. Coat […]
One part wine bar, one part humidor, and all parts boutique, the Boerne Wine Company is known for sourcing those hard-to-find wines that not just anyone can get. Experience them by the taste, half glass, or full glass.
Whether it’s hot or cold outside, as Texans, it is pre-ordained that we spend lots of time at the grill! This is an amazing, year-round steak. The key is that it is dry-aged. Over time, the flavor builds to a delicious grade. You can’t find this at every supermarket.
This dish has the Southwest flair Boudro’s is famous for. You can enjoy it on the beautiful River Walk – or, it’s easy enough to make at home!
Beringer Vineyards in Napa Valley is in a nationwide search for the best steak recipes. The Great Steak Challenge divides the country into 10 regions. The winner of the Texas region is from Wimberley!
This fiery steak from Zinc is perfect for a rainy day. Enjoy! Season steak with salt and cover both sides with black pepper. Use a meat tenderizer to pound in the peppercorns. Be sure not to pound too hard. In a sauté pan over medium heat, add canola oil. When the oil begins to smoke […]
I adore the charm and warmth of Little Rhein Steak House. Nestled into historic La Villita, it’s as lovely inside as the perfectly positioned patio on the Riverwalk is outside. Next time you dine there, take a minute to look around and think about The Little Rhein’s place in the history books.
This dish is from one of my all time favorite San Antonio Riverwalk restaurants, and probably yours too, Boudro’s. The marinade for the flank steak is one of the secrets to this dish, and then there’s the savory Chimmichurri sauce to top it off! Pure Bliss.
Robert Mondavi’s vision of making fine wines and establishing Napa as a world-class wine making region is still celebrated today. The marketing genius made the name Mondavi synonymous with the word wine. I had the pleasure of meeting Rob Mondavi, Jr., Robert’s grandson, during last Fall’s crush.
