When we were named the official tailgate bbq ambassadors to the Edmonton Elks, we knew we needed to knock our food out of the stadium! I did some research to find the best and most sensational tailgate bbq food around. Taking my own tastes into account, I decided that philly cheesesteak sandwiches was the answer
Rib cap steaks are one of the most decadent, fatty and delicious cuts of steak on a cow. This decadent morsel comes from the top of the Ribeye also referred to as the Spinalis. This is one of the most tender and flavorful pieces on a whole cow. I was very lucky to have been gifted 2 cap steaks by my friend Jeff Nonay of Lakeside Farmstead. They raise a breed of Wagyu called Wagyu X because it’s wagyu cattle crossed with Holstein cattle. I have been eating Jeff’s beef for a number of years and I have to say that it keeps getting better. His marbling percentages keep getting higher and every year it more closely resembles some of the full blood wagyu cattle that we import from the USA.
When I think of Philadelphia, I think of 2 things: The Eagles and Philly Cheesesteak. The Fresh Prince barely rings a bell compared to those 2 Philly icons. Here, we are not going to teach you about football, we are going to teach you how to nail the best sandwich in the world, the Philly Cheesesteak. I made this for the staff at You Need a BBQ for lunch last week, and they loved every bite of it. I made mine with sirloin, but you could use any cut of steak to make this work.
Make the Worlds Most Expensive Sandwich at home for less!
The Wagyu Katsu Sando is the world’s most expensive sandwich. It sells on Wall St. in New York City for hundreds of dollars and believe me when I say this, it is worth every penny! But now with our exclusive lines of Wagyu Beef available on at You Need a BBQ, you can make this delectable dish for yourself at home for a fraction of the price. I like to make a couple of subs from the classic Wall Street version to make this sandwich simpler to make at home, so get ready to dive into umami heaven with this sandwich which is sure to excite your taste buds.
Tomahawk steaks are considered by many to be the king of all the steaks. They are without a doubt the most expensive steak that you can buy, partly because you are paying for all that bone, but also because they are worth it! There is something so primal and amazing about a bone in ribeye, and seeing the long bone sticking out and across the grill gives you a fantastic handle for flipping the steak, but also adds flavor. Frenching the bone (cleaning the meat off of it) makes this Steak look like a giant meat sucker on a stick. Do not be intimidated by this outlandishly large piece of meat, it cooks up easily, just like a normal ribeye.
I love steak tacos! Ground beef is my go-to, but on special occasions, breaking out a skirt steak and some fresh flour tortillas, I do not think is a better thing to eat in the hot sun! I like to keep my tacos super simple, beef, avocado, cheese, peppers and onions and sauce. This lethal combination of ingredients will have you crazing more as soon as you are done.
