Hey, did you know that there really is a difference in how you make your beef and the end result? Yea, really! If you want to chew on leather, put your New York Strip Steak (or any steak for that matter) on the the grill for about 15 min. per side. It works….. I tried it! We didn’t know better and our friends had a hard time chewing it! There is a better way. Some cuts do better cooking it slow and long, and others will be best on the grill for about 5 minutes per side. (if they are about three-quarter inch thick) For more information you really need to check this out.

Our favorite steak marinade


This is a great marinade for any cut of beef, but I use it mostly for steaks.  It contains basic ingredients that, when combined and allowed to blend, will give you a juicy piece of meat every time!  Makes 2 cups (approx. 20 servings).

1 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup red wine vinegar

1/4 cup fresh lemon juice

3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons dijon-style prepared mustard

1 onion, sliced

2 cloves garlic, minced


In a medium bowl, combine the oil, soy sauce, vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, ground black pepper, mustard, onion, and garlic.  Mix together well, and use to marinate your favorite meat.


Tasty Roast Beef


1 onion, chopped

1 can cream of mushroom soup, optional

3/4 soup can water, optional

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup vinegar

1 Tablespoon mustard

1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce



1 (4-5 lb.) roast

Mix the sauce ingredients well and pour on roast.  I usually rub the salt and pepper directly onto the roast.   Sometimes I add raw potatoes, carrots, and celery for a delicious one-dish meal.

Bake in a covered roasting dish at 350 degrees for 3-4 hours, or put everything in your slow cooker and cook on low for 8- 10 hours.
