In our video this week, we review the various types of beef we have talked about and offer our Steak Week menus for your consideration and answer our final trivia question, “What is the difference between prime and choice?”
What’s the difference between dry aged and wet aged steak, grass and grain fed beef or bison and beef?
During steak week, which takes place from May 16th through May 19th, Harry Caray’s will offer four side-by-side steak comparisons with wine pairings. Each selection will be accompanied by detailed tasting notes comparing and contrasting the characteristics of the two different steak options, and explaining how the qualities of the meat influence the choice of wine.
Harry Caray, one of the most highly recognized and beloved play-by-play announcers is best remembered for his tradition of singing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” during the 7th inning stretch and for his famous exclamations: “It might be, it could be, it is! A home run!” and “Holy cow!”
In my blog post last week, I introduced you to Steak Week at Harry Caray’s taking place May 16th through 19th. During that week we will be featuring a different side-by-side steak comparison and wine pairing along with steak and wine tasting notes describing the characteristics of the two different steak options and explaining how the qualities of meat influence the choice of wine.
When faced with the vast array of steak choices in restaurants and upscale grocery stores, do find yourself wondering: Is Prime really better than Choice? What’s the difference between Grain-Fed and Grass-Fed? Bison or Beef? Dry Aged or Wet Aged? What wine should I choose for which steak?
