Dinner Tonight: Black Pepper-Honey Rib Eye

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 16 comments

While I like dressing up some neglected cuts of beef, I'm not much for drowning a beautiful rib-eye in a sauce. That's why I love this recipe from the The Splendid Table's How to Eat Supper. The steaks are dipped into a mixture of red wine, honey, and black pepper for just a few minutes, and then cooked. You don't really need to worry about anything other than whether the steaks are perfectly cooked. More

Alright, gastrosexuals.... More

From beef to veggie, tuna to mushroom, mini-slider to double-decker, I love burgers of all kinds. The one patty that can prove problematic? Turkey. It's hard to keep ground poultry from drying out. Even carefully cooked chicken and turkey burgers... More

If, like me, you live in a small city apartment, turning on your oven in the warmer months can be unbearable—the whole place heats up like a sauna. And even if you live in the spacious suburbs, who wants to... More

Cook the Book: Iced Cantaloupe Soup with Jalapeño and Basil

Serious Eats Lucy Baker 4 comments

My boyfriend's mother has the uncanny ability to choose flawless melons—perfectly ripe, luscious, and dripping with honey flavor. I, on the other hand, often end up with tasteless watermelons and mealy cantaloupes. My oh-so-professional method of selection? Tap lightly on... More
