PREPARING THE PERFECT STEAK

»Posted by on Sep 1, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

STEPS TO PREPARING THE PERFECT STEAK 1. Make it Marbled The best steaks for home grilling are perfectly marbled beef rib eye steaks or bone-in rib eye steaks (often called Cowboy Steaks). The marbling, flecks of fat shot through the meat, enhances the flavor of the steak while basting the meat to ensure a juicy end result. 2. Oil it Use a canola/olive blended oil to coat the steak before seasoning it. By lightly coating the meat, you’ll get a quick sear, ensuring a juicier final product as well as greatly aiding the charring. Save expensive olive oils for salads, where their subtle flavors will shine brightest. 3. Season Simply A well-marbled steak needs only coarsely ground black pepper and kosher salt to bring flavor perfection. It really is a case of the sum being greater than the parts. Be sure to season a bit more than you might regularly season a sautéed item, as some of the steak’s seasoning will be lost in the grilling process. You want to be sure to have enough on the steak to get the job done. 4. It’s All About Heat High heat sears the cooking surface of the meat, allowing for the perfect combination of charred outside and juicy inside. Keep two sides of the grill hot and move the steak to the second hot spot if the first grilling area is aggressively flaming up. Dousing with water is a last resort; you want to keep the grill as hot as possible, while keeping safety in mind. 5. Don’t Flip Out Flipping the steak too often can sabotage the charring of the meat and eliminate most of the seasoning on the steak. Don’t drag the steak over the grill when turning. Pick it up in one motion and place it back with the same motion. 6. Rest and Relax Once you have achieved the desired temperature, remove the steak from the heat and allow it to rest for at least 5 minutes on a grate over a pan before cutting it. Make sure there is air all around the steak to stop the cooking process. The internal juices will redistribute throughout the steak, which will relax and become tender. Cutting it too soon will allow the juices to spill out turning a medium rare steak into a medium plus steak. 7. Sizzle and Salt After the steak has rested, return it to the grill for about 30 seconds on each side just before serving to get a surface sizzle going. A little sprinkle of a grey sea salt on the steak allows for a gentle and focused re-seasoning of the steak. 8. Spread the Magic With the above tips, you’ll quickly become known as a grill master. Buy a couple of steaks (make sure they are marbled), invite some friends over and impress them with your newly found grill skills. It’s up to you if you want to share your secrets. Great advice from Executive Chef John Schenk … I tried it and it works!!...

Experimenting in the Bedroom

»Posted by on Aug 23, 2012 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Experimenting in the Bedroom  Are you bored with your sex life?  If you are, you may want to spice things up a bit in the bedroom.  A great way to do so is to try something new.  Experimenting in the bedroom often brings new life to any relationship.  It can also allow couples to reach new levels of pleasure.   When it comes to experimenting, many individuals and their minds automatically wander.  It is important to remember that bedroom experimenting comes in a number of different formats.  It does not have to involve something that would be embarrassing if it leaked out, and it does not have to involve bringing in a third person.  Experimenting in the bedroom can honestly mean something as simple as trying a new position.  Although many individuals, like you, want to experiment in the bedroom, many are afraid to approach their partner about doing so.  Why do you think that is so?  Because there is a certain level of fear associated with doing so.  What if your partner thinks that they don’t please or satisfy you enough in the bedroom? What if your partner thinks that the sex is just fine the way it is?  What if your sex partner thinks that you have a sick mind?  These are all concerns that you may have, but you should not let that stop you. If you do decide to approach the subject of experimenting in the bedroom with your partner, you will want to be gentle with your approach.  Your partner may automatically believe that he or she is not pleasing enough for you.  Although this may not be what you mean, it is still a likely and natural assumption.  If your partner asks you, be sure to calm their fears.  Let them know that you think that experimenting in the bedroom could not only increase your pleasure and satisfaction, but theirs as well.  This approach tends to work. As I previously stated, when many individuals hear the phrase “experimenting in the bedroom,” their minds often wander to embarrassing and sometimes humiliating experiences.  If you are just looking to try a new sex position, introduce pleasure enhancing sex toys, or romantic movies; be sure to let your partner know immediately.  Do not give him or her the opportunity to think that you mean something different; doing so can change the way that your partner looks at you, both inside and outside of the bedroom. In addition to letting your partner know what changes you would like to make in the bedroom, give them the opportunity to express their wants, needs, and desires.  This is a simple, yet important step to take.  First, it is important to remember that intimacy should involve two people receiving maximum pleasure, not just on; it will help bring reassurance to your partner that you are not just looking to increase your pleasure.  Asking what your partner’s wants and needs are in the bedroom will go to show that you want to improve the overall experience, not just yours. Despite the fact that experimenting in the bedroom may sometimes be a difficult subject to approach, it is one that you will want to talk about.  A healthy sex life is an important component of any relationship and marriage.  By approaching the subject carefully, you and your partner can soon be having wild, yet pleasurable sex in no time at...
