Grilling the Perfect Steak

Does your grilled steak look as good as this one? It can.

It took us a while to find a fool proof time table for cooking steaks, but we did. We've used this time table for years now, with every cut of steak we've cooked and they've turned out perfectly.

I once had a guest comment he couldn't believe he asked for a medium-rare steak and his wife asked for a medium steak and they were served that way. It seems that at a lot of backyard barbecues the steaks are cooked all one way - overdone.

Believe me when I say you can cook the perfect steak every time using this time table.

Visit our page with a grill timetable for grilling and broiling steaks.

Once you've grilled the perfect steak enjoy it with homemade original Henry Bain steak sauce.

The Perfect Potato for Potato Salad.

In an issue of Cooks Illustrated they did what they do so well, the reinvented classic American potato salad. What they found along the way was that the russet potato actually absorbs flavors from the dressing better than other types of potatoes, enhancing the overall flavor of the salad.

Try our tasty potato salad recipes above and use russet potatoes for the best flavor!
