Bourbon-Marinated Flank Steak

@wheatster only matters on size of the steak. regular frying pan is great if the flank fits in it.

Michelada

Here in Texas, all my original experiences with micheladas had a tomato base spicy mix similar to a bloody mary mix but with almost 50/50 lime juice, served over ice with a salt rim in a beer mug, with a cerveza of your choice on the side. the occasional variation is the solo lime juice with a dash of tapatio or valenciana, served the same way. When my friends do it we use zing zang, lots of lime juice, ice, salt and pacificos....

Bourbon-Marinated Flank Steak

This was great. I used fish sauce and a tsp of vinegar and a tsp of stubb's bbq sauce instead of worcestershire and deglazed the pan with some old chianti to reduce to a sauce. any rules on mixing your wine and whiskey?

Best Places to Eat on S. Padre Island?

Wanna Wanna has good ceviche and their fried shrimp and tilapia is good - but it is def a fry em up with little freshness. I had the blackened redfish at Scampi's and it was good as well. If you're looking for fresh light summer food you are on the wrong island - the food is fried and heavy but you are in south texas baby!!!

Indian for lunch in Dallas area

taj mahal on 75 and meadow is my favorite. nothing fancy though - it is in a strip mall off the highway. their daal makhani is the best i've ever had and the chef guards the recipe like a freemason.

Chinatown dim sum?

I had Chinatown's dim sum for the first time last weekend and I think it is the best in Texas. If you know of better - please post because I want to try it. AustinNYCer - what did you have that was bad? I've liked (often loved) everything I've had there but only been there a few times. I'm a big fan of the beef stock in their wonton soup.

Best local-to-Texas beer

Go for Rio Blanco Pale Ale - a lot like Sierra Nevada Pale Ale but with european "noble" hops instead of cascade - more subtle flavor and #1 on my list for that type of beer.
