You Call That A Knife....This Is A Knife

Hey Cats,

Suckered you in with the hopes of crocodile Dundee didn't I? Well if you have been following my Instagram lately you would have seen a sea of lovely food. We are real foodies in the Kaos household and Mr K loves to cook. We get bored of eating the same thing again and again so try and get creative with our ingredients. A big part of cooking is having the right tools for the job which can make preparation so much easier. Lately we have had lots of meat dishes and a great example is when we had steak two ways. Meat can take a fair amount of prep as it needs to be trimmed and cut down especially when you work with large cuts or even joints, 


A good knife is so important when cooking steak Mr K had to prepare the steak by trimming it down to make it leaner and as we didn't have a meat tenderiser so he had to go rouge with a rolling pin to make the meat more tender. That way when coated and chicken fried it ensures that it cooks throughout. That job would have been easier with the right utensil but luckily that is a tool that can be improvised. With steak there is no getting around a good knife especially for how he next served it. 


Yes, that delicious sandwich you are looking at is a Phillie cheese steak sandwich with mustard grilled onions, Steak can be a beast to cut sometimes so a good knife is essential in any kitchen. We made sure we invested in a good one and even when a decent knife gets blunt you can sharpen it with ease and it will last you for years. Carlson Knives have an amazing selection of knives and sharpeners for all your cooking needs, If you are more adventurous and like the outdoors they also have a wide range of survival knives get ready for that zombie apocalypse.

What have you been cooking lately?
