Have you ever stood atrepparttar butchers counter and wondered, what isrepparttar 143301 difference between a top sirloin and a porterhouse. If you find a good beef cookbook often times it will have a diagram ofrepparttar 143302 different cuts of meat. If this is too ordinary for your taste find yourself a couple of young FFA (Future Farmers of America) members. They will be all too happy to tell you all they know about beef. In my experience you will know far more than you ever wanted to aboutrepparttar 143303 inner and outer workings of a steer after meeting with FFA members. In case neither of these options is readily available here is a break down of some common cuts of beef.

Rib-eye; this cut is a top choice because it has abundant marbling. Asrepparttar 143304 rib-eye cooks this marbling melts intorepparttar 143305 meat and creates a juicy, rich tasting cut of meat.

Porterhouse; this cut also has plentiful marbling. The porterhouse has a top loin that is moist and flavorful and a smooth buttery soft tenderloin. This cut is a popular choice in restaurants featuring deals such as eat all of our 26 ounce steak and your entire meal is free. Be forewarned this is a lot of meat, I have seen many brave souls try and only one succeed. He had a stomach ache for two days.

Written by Anthony Tripodi

The best part of camping has nothing to do with being outside. Think back torepparttar last time you slept inrepparttar 143193 woods and you will agree with me. Take awayrepparttar 143194 mosquitoes,repparttar 143195 unexpected rainstorms and going torepparttar 143196 bathroom inrepparttar 143197 bushes and what's left? Not much you say? Well then you forgotrepparttar 143198 best part because nothing is more fun about camping than making s'mores. If you don't have time for camping anymore but melted chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers still sounds tempting, don't worry. We'll show you three ways to skiprepparttar 143199 great outdoors and cook up some s'mores inrepparttar 143200 comforts of your own home.

A great way to cook s'mores indoors is to userepparttar 143201 Casa Moda S'mores Maker. It's a lot like cooking smores outdoors. The S'mores Maker replacesrepparttar 143202 campfire with a sterno and instead of passing aroundrepparttar 143203 bag of marshmallows, there are neat places to stack all of your ingredients. The Casa Moda S'mores Maker is great for those of us who are trying to set a mood. There are people who don't mind their guests digging in a box of graham crackers or standing overrepparttar 143204 oven with a fork. But if you're trying to create a warm and cozy environment and have an enjoyable evening, thenrepparttar 143205 S'mores Maker is something to consider.

The second way to make s'mores indoors is alsorepparttar 143206 easiest. With a microwave and about 30 seconds you could dig right into a delicious plate of these chocolaty marshmallow graham treats. Withrepparttar 143207 same amount of time outside, you probably won't be digging into anything except maybe a hole inrepparttar 143208 ground to put your campfire. On a microwave safe dish, place a graham cracker, a piece of chocolate and a large marshmallow. Place another graham cracker onrepparttar 143209 dish to use asrepparttar 143210 top. The marshmallow will puff up while it's cooking so don't bother trying to make a sandwich at this point. Cook for 30-45 seconds. Wait a few seconds whilerepparttar 143211 marshmallow deflates, then placerepparttar 143212 second graham cracker on top like a sandwich. What could be easier than that?
