  1. I am looking for your steak knife that has your logo on them they are a very good steak knife and would like to buy some so could you please help me. We used them at the Bear Bottom Inn in MacKay Idaho

  2. This is not a reply but a question, with which I hope you can help. My family and I are not crazy about rare or even medium-rare roasts. For Christmas, I have been making a strip-loin roast – 8 to 10#s – without much success. We enjoy our beef roasts pink and warm in the center. I believe that’s considered Medium well. Yes, I know. Heresy! Blasphemy! But we just don’t like it red/pink and bloody. Recently, I tried the 500-degree 5 mins/lb, then shut down the oven and let it sit for two hours without opening the oven. I did it for 7-1/2 mins/lb and let it sit 2 hrs. 15-minutes and it was still at best, medium rare. (It was great the following day, by the way.) So, before I blow $100.00 or so on a strip loin roast, any suggestions to get it, “medium-well”, i.e., pink and warm in the center? I’m fine on the seasoning. I am only interested in time and temps. Help! Please?

  3. Not long ago Tony Biggs posted a photo on LinkedIn of an Asian steak tartare. Is there a recipe?
