Open Fire Grilling 4

Open Fire Grilling There’s something elemental about an open fire. And no, I’m not trying to be ironic here. It’s a magical thing; which, yes, started civilization, and all that. But to me it’s much more immediate. To me, fire draws me in, it captivates me. Fire, perhaps because of […]

Slow Cooked Rib Eye Steak 9

UPC’s Slow Cooked Rib Eye Steak and Veggies Spring has been teasing us here in the NYC area. It’s playing hide-and-go-seek, or some version. It’s like it shows just enough of itself to get us to be excited, get up, and start chasing it; but it’s a much better runner […]

Saffron Steak Immunity Booster Salad 1

UPC’s Saffron Steak Immunity Booster Salad It’s definitely the “immunity booster” time of year.

I’m sure that the local Jamba Juice is selling out of their little “booster” powders, and probably they’re doing […]

What’s For Dinner? Clove Steak with Caramelized Mushrooms and Onions

UPC’s Clove Steak My wife asked me recently: “How do you avoid repeating yourself?” I hate to admit it, but the truth is that I really, honestly, don’t know if I do manage to avoid repeating myself! That said, I eat somewhere between 18 and 25 meals each week, most […]

What’s For Lunch? Steak Hot & Cold Summer Salad

UPC’s Steak Hot & Cold Summer Salad This was a looong weekend! There are “Long Weekends” where you have an extra day due to a holiday, or perhaps a carefully chosen vacation day. And then there are looong weekends, like this one was for me, where you are still unpacking, […]


What’s For Dinner? Cocoa Steak 4

UPC’s Cocoa Steak I was paid a tremendous compliment yesterday in the comments section. And it got me thinking. Don’t worry, it didn’t hurt; at least, not yet. The compliment was something along the lines of: “You should totally start to sell your meals as a “Weekly Meal Plan and […]

UPC’s Open Faced Steak Sandwich I have been using the Portobello Mushroom Caps for some time as my burger buns in restaurants. I ask for it in almost every restaurant I go to, and when they say yes, I get all excited and often go back! But this past weekend […]
