Dudefood tuesday: Breadcups with a ground beef steak

Bread baskets with raw meat |

Here in Holland we have winter- and summertime and this weekend they put the clock one hour back. Which results in shorter days and that signals the coming of Winter.
The days become shorter but it also tells us that Holidays are coming. Holidays in which we invite a lot of people and we have to cook for them.
And often that means we stay for hours in the kitchen to impress our guests in which every Dude wants to also wants to add that prverbial dime in the bag. Bread baskets with tartar |
Don’t tell  me that you don’t care to impress your guests with your cooking, for when you don’t why are you reading this blog anyway?
But on the other hand a real dude also wants to raise the glass (or the beerbottle) with his guests. So in fact he has to be in two places at the same time; the kitchen and the living room with his guests.
And there you have it; real dudes can’t multitask. For, where ladies can do several things at once with mediocre result, dudes excel in doing one thing at a time with excellence.
So it’s about time to reflex on how to hit that two birds with one stone.

Perhaps I’ve found the solution for this standoff.
For you can serve your guests a special treat and brag about it the same time (without working yourself in sweat in the kitchen) whilst drinking a beer. How’s that for multi tasking?

Ofcourse it must be dudey, so this appetizer/snack is served with RAW meat.
Raw meat fires off the primal instincts of every Dude, so here is the showstopper for every party.

  1. A lovely presentation and fantastic idea! Tartar is so delicious and yours sounds/looks amazing.



  2. In Hawaii tartar is called “Poke” pronounced [pouˈkeɪ] and is the Hawaiian word for to slice, cut crosswise into pieces, as fish or wood. There are thousands of recipes for “Poke” and you try to use the freshest fish that is near or at sashimi grade. Most all grocery stores in Hawaii have a section devoted just to fresh “Poke” and there are stores that just sell “Poke”. There is an annual festival dedicated just to “Poke”. “Poke” is made with fish, clams, crabs, lobster, shrimp, limpets, oysters, scallops, octopus, squid, seaweed, and sea cucumbers or sometimes meat. “Poke” can use all raw or cooked ingredients. “Poke” is almost a daily diet resource in Hawaii besides the mandatory 2-scoups of rice. For tartar in Hawaii the chefs turn to very expensive prime Japanese Black Wagyu Beef which the taste and texture just can’t be described because it is so heavenly. The fat marbling within the beef will melt just from the heat of your finger touching it making the beef tender. The Japanese word “Sushi” means sandwich which they place raw or cooked fish, meat or vegetables on a formed block of rice sometimes wrapped in dried seaweed (rice is used in place of bread). Japanese word “sashimi” means excellent best part of the animal or seafood thinly sliced and eaten raw for taste and texture.
