Meat is f*cking awesome. It’s a known fact. Have you ever tried to figure out where on a cow a piece of meat is from? Below are a few pictures that can help you understand meat just a little more.
It’s Monday and the kitchen was ON FIRE. After a long day in the pits of midtown, we needed to have a few Miller Lights and make a banging Chicken and Cashew dish. This was inspired by the infamous Chicken and Pine nut plate from Englewood, NJ’s Baumgarts Cafe.
What did I learn from this? – I’ve never actually fried anything with corn starch before. I gotta say, it was pretty good.
Without further ado, the recipe.

I get it – it’s easy to order pizza, Chinese, and burritos from seamless on rotation – you’ve even got them queued up for 1-click to your door. BUT – if you have a little extra time on your hands, are looking to save cash, want to impress your girl, and eat something a little better than 2 Bros….I’ve got some serious BRO recipes for you right here on omg Let’s BBQ!
Today’s recipe involves beer, cheese, and bacon – definitely BRO worthy ingredients right? This is my recipe for a bangin’ beer cheese soup – perfect for enjoying some football while crushing beers with your bros.
10 Step Instructions:
STEP 1: Making Bread Bowls
Take a serrated knife, cut around the top in a circle and remove. Keep the top for later.
STEP 2: Prepare your vegetables
Mince up that pepper, onion, and garlic cloves. I use a food processor, but you can use a chef’s knife or invest in one of those convenient food choppers that cost around $20. Throw the ingredients in a strainer to reduce some of the water.
STEP 3: Prepare your cheese
You can buy cheese in blocks like I did and use a grater, or go about this the BRO way and buy shredded cheese from the grocery store.
STEP 4: Ready the Bacon
Take a large stock pot, turn up the heat to medium, and throw in 5 slabs of bacon, chopped into 1 inch by 1 inch bites. Feel free to cook more than 5 – you can’t ever have enough bacon. Once it’s cooked, take the bacon out and drain on a paper towel – be sure to leave some of that awesome grease in the pot to build a base of bacony-flavor for the soup!
STEP 4: Cook the Veggies, add butter and flour
Toss in your garlic, pepper, and onions. Let these cook until transluscent bro. (about 8 mins). Then toss in the butter, and once that’s melted – throw in the flour and stir.
STEP 5: Get your bread bowl ready
Take your bread bowl and put some olive oil on the inside of the bowl, and on the underside of the top. Throw it in the oven at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes or until the bread has hardened. #thatswhatcheesesaid
STEP 5: Add BEER! (2 cups). Let the alcohol cook off (about 5 mins.) After, toss in the half and half. It helps to make it creamy. #thatswhatcheesesaid
STEP 6: Add the Cheese! Put it in nice and slow. #thatswhatcheesesaid
STEP 9: Add about half the bacon back to the soup, and stir.
Toss in some salt, pepper, maybe even some crushed red pepper to make it hot. #thatswhatcheesesaid
STEP 10: Serve it!
Fill up your breadbowl, add remaining bacon to the top and garnish with a handful of cilantro. Serve with a side salad and a craft brew BRO!

Crushing a few of these cookies and adding even more deliciousness to form what might be the best childhood snack into an acceptable Christmas Eve dessert. Epicurious has the deets.
There is just something about Pasta and Meat in the same dish that always looks and tastes amazing. Never fails when cooking for a group. Our friends over at Full Belly Blog went over the top with this mouth-watering recipe. If you have some time on your hands, give it a go!
I’ve seen some crazy dips before, but this one for sure caught my eye. Pepperoni Pizza Dip. Woah. Check out how to make it at Chow. Hat tip to Alicia for the tip!
Loaded French Fries from the hidden gem in NYC’s East Village, Black Iron Burger. They deliver mouth watering burgers and fries, keeping it simple. Above we have a picture of their “Loaded Fries.” Bacon, chives, shredded cheese and the most important ingredient- horseradish mayonnaise. Unbelievable.
Check them out on 5th Street between Ave A and B. They frequently have Groupon specials, so it’s worth a check before you head over.
Drones were definitely the talk of the internet in 2013.Drones, AKA “Mini-helicopters,” “Unmanned air-crafts” are small remote controlled Amazon announced they were looking into using them for shipping and everyone freaked out that they were being watched. OMG Let’s BBQ is not interested in either of those two uses for drones. We compiled a list of some of the more “Bro” ways that people found a use for drone.
You gotta love food rumors, especially ones that target massive food chains. You might have seen this picture float around the internet, showing what a McNugget looks like before it’s cooked.
The OMG crew was shocked at this accusation, given that one of the writers recently sucked down 36 of them in 20 minutes during an eating contest.
(Yes, this is what 600 chicken nuggets look like)
Now onto how this is not real. Snopes did a nice in-depth recap of exactly how they are made and why this pink goop is mostly not true. Since it’s a long, boring article we kept poking around for more information on it. We uncovered the video below which is a nice look behind the scenes at McDonald’s.
So yeah, chicken might have a pinkish color, but not bubble gum pink. Maybe that image is from the factory of Hubba Bubba?
Super Bowl 48 was yesterday and the entire country is still full. It’s almost as good as Easter, Thanksgiving or even Christmas Eve (my personal favorite). The OMG crew is currently compiling a list of all of the amazing food that was cooked over the weekend for a massive recap post. In the meantime, we wanted to share a really unique Shooter Sandwich that was created by TheGreenShepard on Reddit. He created not only a Sandwich Shooter, but themed the ingredients for NY/ NJ Italians. Check out his photo recap below.
Cut avocados and mash. Cut onions super small. Everybody always thinks they are putting too many onions in their guac, WRONG. This is the key to the guac and you can never have too much. Cut tomatoes like tomatoes.
Put everything in a bowl and mix. Then, twist the salt and pepper mill over the guac for about 12 seconds. You should be able to see a the salt and pepper on top visibility to know you’ve got a solid amount. Pop the mustard and soy sauce in and mix it up.
Now, for this go around in the Super Bowl spirit I decided to utilize the guacamole as the football field on top of my seven layer dip football field!!! I put some cheese for the end done, and put some sour cream in a ziploc. Use a needle to create a small whole in the bottom corner, and you’ve got yourself a neat way to draw on the field.
Eat and enjoy. After all, it ain’t a Super Bowl party without either A) Frohli, or B) GuacaFrohli
Here on OMG Let’s BBQ we love writing about our food experiences. Whether it’s going to Philly for cheesesteaks or dipping Oreos in milk with a fancy stick – we write about it. Today we bring you Pizza Hut’s Stuffed Crust Pizza. If you watched TV in the last 3 months, I’m sure you have seen the mouthwatering Pizza Hut commercials promoting the cheese-stuffed crust pizza.
Since the first time I saw this, I knew I needed to get my hands on it.
I’ll be honest, living in NYC for the last few years I have been spoiled with the best pizza in the world. This weekend I rolled out of bed after a long night and knew today was the day. For some reason, Pizza Hut only has two locations in NYC, Times Square and Harlem. I’m not sure why that is. Do they know their pizza can’t match any of the 35 million Ray’s Original Pizza, or are they playing hard to get? So, hopping on the subway hungover, I was ready. Got up to the counter and ordered a large stuffed crust with pepperoni and two waters. $30. 20 minutes later, I opened the box to this.
Looks pretty good right? The actual pizza part was bearable – your typical pizza. Once I got up to the crust, things went downhill. The cheese was not cheese. I don’t know what they used but it tasted and looked like salty goo. I not only needed both waters to keep down the two slices, but I needed a solid 15 minutes starting into space before I had the mindset and strength to leave. 4 hours later and I think I’m almost fully recovered. I needed a few beers to forget about what I just ate. I will not be back.
Have you tried the stuffed crust from Pizza Hut? Let us know how your experience was in the comments.
