Most weekends, we also stop by Fred the Butcher, a local butcher store that has won numerous ‘best butcher store in the area’ awards. In fact, they’ve won the yearly award so many times that it’s almost not worth counting ’em up! Fred the Butcher carries an incredible selection of Certified Angus Beef ® brand products…no wonder they keep winning that award! Last summer, I had the opportunity to visit Certified Angus Beef’s Culinary Center in Wooster, Ohio. I came back armed with all sorts of knowledge and ideas – like these Hatch Green Chile Burgers. I also came back armed with stress steers.
I gave Robbie a ‘stress steer’ when I got home, and now he brings it with him every time we go to “the meat store.” Fred the Butcher has a huge steer out front, and Robbie wants to make sure his stress steer gets to say hello to his larger friend. (Look at that top middle photo. He’s “introducing” his stress steer to the Fred the Butcher steer!) So every weekend, we stop by and pet the steer outside of Fred the Butcher. At some point, I started taking photos of this ritual. It’s amazing to look back at how much Robbie has grown! It’s also really funny how Robbie associates his stress steers with the larger steer outside of Fred’s. He wants to make sure they’re all friends!
Steak and Gorgonzola Pizza
Robbie and I stopped by Fred the Butcher last weekend to pick up a good ribeye steak for this Steak and Gorgonzola Pizza. We do pizza nights almost once a week here (typically on Saturday nights), and this time I wanted to include steak with dollops of gorgonzola and mozzarella cheese. Delicious!
I had initially planned on using blue cheese for this pizza. After all, one of my favorite hamburgers involved bits of blue cheese mixed right into the patty. However, Laura astutely pointed out that the larger amount of blue cheese required for the pizza could overwhelm the other flavors. So I backtracked slightly and used gorgonzola cheese instead. Gorgonzola is technically a type of blue cheese, but it falls on the milder end of the spectrum. It worked perfectly for this Steak and Gorgonzola Pizza!
You might notice that this pizza is a bit more “rustic” in shape. (Note that huge crust bubble!) This was our first time making a pizza in the new house, and we’re still adjusting to the new kitchen. We have an electric oven now, so we realized that we’ll need to preheat it a bit longer when we make pizza. That’s ok. We’re learning! In the meantime, I can say with 100% certainty that this “rustic” pizza was still quite delicious! If you do pizza night at your place, then put a good ribeye steak and gorgonzola on the shopping list. If you don’t do pizza night at your place…then start! Cheers, friends!
