Meat Grades…………………..

Meat grading is a voluntary system used as a guideline to identify the tenderness, marbling and overall palatability of the meat. Lower grades of meat are not less nutritious and often tend to be leaner and better for you. In order of best first, here are the common consumer grades:

* U.S. Prime – best grade of beef which comes from steers, heifers or young bulls. This is a small percentage of the meat that is produced in the U.S. Most of this goes to restaurants.
* U.S. Choice – Less marbling than prime, choice cuts can come from steers, heifers, cows or young bulls. Used in restaurants as well as consumer retail.
* U.S. Select – The least expensive of the common grades, usually leaner, less marbled meats. Select cuts come from the same animals as choice cuts.

One of America’s Favorites – Booyah (stew)

American-style booyah stew

Booyah (also spelled booya, bouja, boulyaw, or bouyou) is a thick stew, believed to have originated in Belgium, and made throughout the Upper Midwestern United States. Booyah can require up to two days and multiple cooks to prepare; it is cooked in specially designed “booyah kettles” and usually meant to serve hundreds or even thousands of people. The name can also refer to a social event surrounding the meal.

In cooking booyah, one makes a base or broth derived from meat bones, to which vegetables are added. Beef, chicken, and pork are popular varieties of meat for booyah (with all three often in the same kettle), with vegetables such as carrots, peas, onion, and potatoes also in the mix. A wide variety of seasonings are used, sometimes lowered into the kettle in a cheesecloth bag. Typical large-scale booyah kettles can hold more than 50 US gallons and are made from steel or cast iron to withstand direct heat and the hours (or days) of cooking.

The term “booyah” may be a variant of “bouillon”. It is thought to have derived from the French language words for “boil” (bouillir) and “broth” (bouillon). The spelling with an H has been attributed to phonetic spelling by Wallonian immigrants from Belgium. The Dictionary of American Regional English attributes the term to French Canadian immigrants; others attribute it to a derivation from the Provençal seafood dish bouillabaisse.

An article in the Green Bay Press-Gazette on October 29, 1976, speculating on the origin of the spelling and related fundraiser event, reads:

Booyah seasoned with peas, granulated vegetables and chicken

Lester (Rentmeester) relates recollections of his schoolteacher father, Andrew, probably the “pioneer” of the word “booyah” . “At the old Finger Road School where he taught, funds were always in short supply,” he recalls. “So my father hit on the idea of a community picnic to raise money for the school. He went around to parents and neighbors, gathering up beef and chickens for the traditional Belgian soup that would be the main dish at the benefit affair. And he also went down to the office of the old Green Bay Gazette, looking for publicity.” The writer handling the news of the benefit picnic, so the story goes, asked what would be served. “Bouillon—we will have bouillon,” came the reply, with the word pronounced properly in French. “The young reporter wrote it down as he heard it,” Rentmeester relates. “It came out ‘booyah’ in the paper. It was booyah the first time it was served at Holy Martyrs of Gorcum Church—an affair my father also originated–and that’s what people have called it ever since.”

A November 19, 2015, Press-Gazette article repeats Rentmeester’s claim but also suggests that the dish “could have erupted as a tradition in multiple places at once”. The article notes that there are several variations on the name “booyah” around the Upper Midwest that “appear to be attempts to phonetically manage the hard-to-spell word ‘bouillon’, and they all are pronounced roughly the same”.

Booyah is still made in northern and northeastern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula at county fairs, VFW gatherings, at booyah cooking contests, and in smaller amounts at private gatherings. In a 2018 article in the Post Crescent, Booyah was reportedly sold at church and other non-profit fundraisers for $20 (U.S. dollar) per gallon. The Green Bay Booyah baseball team was named after the stew.

Green Chile Bison Burger
Take a trip to the Southwest with this juicy green-chile cheeseburger made with rich-tasting ground bison. You could make these with freshly roasted green chiles, but canned green chiles, which you can find near other Mexican food in most supermarkets, keep this recipe a snap to make when you’re in a hurry. Serve with a sliced tomato salad………………………..

Hand-Chopped Steak Burgers with Caramelized Fennel
Chopping steak instead of using ground beef to make these healthy burgers gives them a more toothsome texture. Come summer, give this a cooler spin by tossing the raw fennel with 2 tablespoons vinegar and 1 tablespoon oil to serve alongside……………….

Jalapeño Popper Burgers
We’ve taken a simple burger recipe and made it pop with an easy three-ingredient jalapeño cheese topping. Ground sirloin is lean ground beef made exclusively from the center loin cut. It has less connective tissue than regular ground beef for a super-tender burger……………………..

Cold Water works………………..

To ensure more of the meat winds up on your grill than stuck to your hands into cold water before molding your meat. Heat from your hands can make the ground beef stickier and more difficult to shape into patties.

Steak Enchilada Bowls with Sweet Potato Rice
You won’t miss the regular rice in these hearty bowls, which feature sweet potato “rice” that’s quickly made in your food processor. The simple swap means a welcome burst of color and flavor, plus way more vitamin A, vitamin C and potassium. This quick and easy recipe is sure to become a weeknight favorite. It takes about half an hour to prep, but you can make it even faster by swapping in store-bought sweet potato rice…………………………

Chipotle Skirt Steak Tacos with Smoky Tomatillo Salsa
Here’s a pro tip from chef Rick Bayless, who shared this skirt steak taco recipe: puree a can of chipotles in adobo sauce and keep it in your fridge. Adobo is a vinegary tomato sauce, so along with the chipotles (smoked jalapeños), it becomes an all-purpose marinade that’s spicy, smoky and salty, all in one. In this recipe you brush it on the steak before grilling but Bayless also does the same move on eggplant, chicken and fish. And having the sauce on hand means you’re ready to whip up this easy grilled dinner at a moment’s notice. Source: EatingWell Magazine, June 2019………………………….

Dressed-Up French Dip Sandwiches
This makeover French dip recipe adds taste and zing to the traditional sandwich. Slow-cooked sweet onions and beef still steal the show, but our mustard spread and roasted pepper relish add taste and color that will make these sandwiches a hit with any crowd.
