It’s been 25 years since I have done a lot of holiday cooking. On Black Friday this year I was browsing at Bed, Bath and Beyond and came across the Bake Pop Baking Pan and Accessories kit and decided to give them a try. I found this official instruction video on YouTube:
I was surprised to find there were an abundance of videos on the subject and discovered several cooks had hand-rolled their pops, using pre-cooked cakes. When you watch this particular video on YouTube you will see many of those videos included as additional viewing recommendations.
Picked up some london broil on sale for $1.99/LB yesterday at Safeway and decided to Google for a good recipe. Came across the Barbecue Pit Boys YouTube video and decided to try their recipe with a few substitutions:
1 12 to 16 oz bottle beer
(I used Blue Moon Beligian White Wheat Ale)
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
1 T. Garlic Powder
1 tsp. Onion Powder
2 T. Worcheschire Sauce
1 T. Peppercorns (Substituted 1 T. Weber Grill Creations Black Peppercon Marinade Mix)
1 T. Prepared Horseradish
Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon (Substituted 1/8 cup bottled lemon juice)
Mix ingredients thoroughly, split mixture into 2 half-gallon Zip-Lock bags, placing two steaks in each bag. Marinate steaks between 4-6 hours minimum. Since this cut of steak is tough, marinating overnight produces even better results. Preheat grill to 375 degrees (roughly medium); cook each side approximately 8 minutes for medium rare. For best results use a meat thermometer. Temperature desired for medium rare steaks is between 130 and 135 degrees. Cut steak across the grain in thin slices.
