When I was in Appleton (WI) last weekend I stopped in at Haen Meats to see what they had. The building is pretty modern and nicely organized.

I picked up some brats, brat patties, andouille sausage, ribeyes, and twice-baked potatoes. The sausages went into the freezer but a couple of nights ago I grilled the steaks.
Image

At first I was going to use just salt and pepper but decided to add some soy sauce and garlic powder because I hadn't seasoned any steaks that way for awhile.
Image

The potatoes were made with bacon and cheese and I added a little more cheese and some butter. I used one of those individual American singles and in hindsight it was a bad choice because when the potato cooked it became very gooey, and while Mrs. Chicken likes it for her grilled cheese sandwiches she didn't like it in the potato.
Image

I cooked them by color instead of checking for doneness, since I'll eat beef anywhere from raw to medium. :lol:
Image

The beef was of very good quality and I'm looking forward to cooking the sausages. I like to check out local products when I'm away from home and Haen's was well worth the stop.

Yeah, they were quite rare but I just couldn't bring myself to cook them very much!

Definitely...soy and garlic is one of my favorite flavor combinations for beef. I can't remember where I got the idea but I saw an episode of "Julia & Jacques" where Julia Child put some soy sauce on a steak, and that would've been around the turn of the century.

Brad-- Well I'm here to join you. You know, when I make my marinade for beef jerky, I use soy and garlic, even Worcestershire as well. Speaking of which, a few days ago, I made some out of tritip. Best jerky I ever mzde! :cheers:
