Beef, It’s What’s for Lunch

Sam Elliott called, they’re retooling the “Beef, it’s what’s for supper” campaign. Now, it’s “Beef, it’s keeping America big and big.” We don’t think it’s going to work, but we’ve got some great workings in the kitchen at week’s end: hamburger steaks and mashed potatoes and barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boys! 

What We’re Cooking for You at Week’s End

Thursday, October 1

Hamburger steaks, mashed potatoes, gravy, and pan-fried cabbage. Who is cooler with a big mustache and familiar grin that our friend Sam Elliott? He loves beef, and his handlebar mustache is dropping by the house to get soaked in some gravy. He won’t look as cool, but he’ll still sound great when he says, “I don’t want to be known as a sex symbol. There’s a great stigma that goes with that tag. I want to be a Sam Elliott, eater of beef.” Well, with gravy on your mustache, the sexy thing is out the window.

Friday, October 2

Barbecued shrimp stuffed po-boy and a house salad. Take a half-size po-boy, hollow the bread to make a bread cave, stuff it with our own New Orleans style barbecued shrimp (prepped in loads of butter, white wine, and saucy spices), cover it with barbecue sauce, and grab the napkins. Aristotle once observed, “In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” Well, he was right about these gulf shrimp we are cooking just for you. And, it reminds us of a much later philosopher of the 20th century named Billy Crystal who said, “Darling, you look maahhvalous, simply maahvalous.” Obviously, he’d eaten the shrimp.
