In the summer, there is nothing better then a great juicy burger out on the patio. These Oklahoma style fried onion burger, there is a layer of fresh onions that are fired into the beef then flips over as the onion juices seep into the burger. Frying burgers in a cast iron skillet gives the exterior of the burger a great browned exterior and a juicy interior.The burgers come out juicy, messy and absolutely delicious served on a toasted buttered bun. It is hard to just have one.
Every family is always looking for a quick and easy recipe that is also inexpensive. Sloppy joes is a favorite with everyone of all ages and is a classic americana meal that almost everyone has enjoyed. Sloppy joes is a great midweek dinner that is inexpensive and extremely easy and quick to make. The meal can be made ahead of time and reheated in a pan and tastes just as good. If you are looking for a healthier option, serve the sloppy joe mix over lettuce to cut the additional carbs from the bun.
When you think of an old time diner one of the first dishes you think of is a patty melt. A patty melt is the perfect blend of a cheese burger and a grilled cheese. A patty melt is a great sandwich which puts a beef burger, caramelized onions and melted swiss cheese in between two slices of toasted rye bread. It is not a great meal if you are trying to stay low fat, but everyone needs to cheat meal every once and awhile. Aren't I right?? Check out the recipe below in post.

The Porketta sandwich has deep ties in Minnesota. The dish was made by Italian immigrants that came to northern Minnesota to work in the iron mines and has been a staple ever since. Porketta is a take of the Italian dish Porchetta, which is a whole pig that has been de-boned and stuffed with herb and slow cooked until tender. This porketta sandwich is a great meal, the pork is extremely tender and packed with flavor from the herbs and spices that the pork marinates in and cooks slowly with. The cooked fennel is tender and is tamed down and almost sweet like caramelized onions flavor. The fennel is one of the most important part of the dish. Top it with your favorite dressing, a typical one is a creamy horseradish sauce. Check out the recipe below.
Right now Mardi Gras is happening down in New Orleans and Fat Tuesday being this coming Tuesday. I decided to make one of my favorite dishes from the area, a shrimp po boy. My favorite part of the shrimp po boy is how how simple but delicious the sandwich is. It is a classic sandwich that consist of lettuce, tomato, pickle, mayonnaise based sauce with meat, typically fried seafood. My recipe is close to the version that you could get down there, but I have added my own touches like adding additional spice to the standard remoulade sauce that would normally go on the sandwich to give you a bit of a heat which goes great with the fried shrimp.
My two favorite hoagie style sandwiches are a meatball and a italian sausage sandwich and with this sandwich you get the flavors with it. For this meatball sandwich, the meatballs are simple to make and are juicy and full of flavor and the simple tomato sauce is something anyone can do.
All of my life I have had this fascination with the steak sandwich. There was a time in my life if i saw one on a menu of a restaurant I would order it, well that still is true!! I love the taste of the steak that a simple burger doesn't offer and with the addition of the great taste of grilled onions and peppers on this one it is just amazing favor in your mouth.
Preheat and oil your grill. In a bowl, add the garlic, worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and vegetable oil. mix until combined. Add the steak and let marinate for 10-15 mins, you can marinate longer if you desire.
Cut the pepper into sections and the onions into 1/4-1/2in rings, keeping the rings together. Oil both sides of the peppers and onions.
Once your grill is hot on high, add the steak and vegetables until the vegetables are tender and the steak has reached 130-140 degrees internal. Let the steak rest for 10mins.
Preheat the broiler on your oven, mix the ingredients for the Aioli in a small bowl. Spread over each of the hoagie rolls. Slice the steak across the grain in 1/2" slices. Add to the hoagie roll equally and top with 3 slices of cheese. Place under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly and bun begins to brown.
