  • Stir-fried pepper steak is a most colorful and flavorful dish

    Lean and boneless, a flank steak is one of only two steaks cut from the underside of a steer, the other being a skirt steak. A thin, oblong-cut mingled with tough meat fibers, a flank steak is loaded with great flavors and responds well to marinades and to high-heat cooking, if only for a brief amount of time.
    It’s best when eaten medium-rare, so be sure to take it off the heat while it’s still rare and allow it to set for a few minutes to retain its juices. For maximum “chewability,” flank steak should be cut into thin slices across the grain.

  • Jeanne Maxon: Good golf and good dogs

    I first met Jeanne Maxon 10 years ago, when I wrote a column about our local club champions. That meeting became the first of many because Jeanne has won the ladies’ club championship at Ocean Ridge Plantation for nine out of the past 10 years. (Karen McClosky won in 2009.)
    We’ve become friends during this time and have played golf together several times. That’s really fun because Jeanne is right down the middle and we only have to search in the lakes, creeks and forests for my errant golf balls.
