Recipe for the Playoffs

Terri asked for my blue cheese and garlic encrusted steak recipe a few days ago and I'm hesitant to give her the details on how I normally prepare it because I think this recipe would turn out much better! That said, all I do is tenderize the steak a bit (don't go crazy), brush on some A-1 steak sauce ( your choice of flavors) and then brush on some minced garlic. After the final turn on the grill, I put blue cheese on top of the steak so it melts. It's tasty, but not truly "encrusted".

(update: I tried the Ruth Chris recipe tonight and it was awesome!)

By the way, I read that meat marinated before grilling accumulates something dramatic, like 75% or so, fewer carcinogens, so make sure you marinate your meat before you grill!!

The Bears have to play another Monday night road game, which seems a bit unfair. It's undeniable that the home team on Monday night has a bigger than normal advantage. Now we have to play Philly after they destroyed Dallas at home. It's ok though. After Philly we play Detroit and San Diego at home. If we win two of the three games, we will be 6-4 going into the last six games which are against mostly sub-par opponents. Over that stretch we should go 5-1 or 4-2 at worst, so we should be 11-5 or 10-6 and either record should be good enough to get into the playoffs. This Philly game will be a tough one, but don't lose hope!!

still warm enough to grill or do you mean inside in the oven?

It's hard to believe that this is the same person who trashed me years ago on my obsessive foodie-ness but now posts his own cooking instructions!

Need more examples of my nefarious influence.

Oh, definitely outside Alexis.

Better late than never... thank you for sharing the details on your steak! We just bought a bunch of angus beef. (Mark's cousin raised the cow. I try not to think too much about the process.) I'm going to give this a try soon, I hope!
