Is it necessary to marinade a top round steak?

Exactly!! Why want this misconception go away? It's almost as bad as the old avocado seed in the bowl, and the guacamole want turn dark myth.

My cast iron Dutch Oven

One or two+ of several pieces of iron used everyday. Hard to choose just one.

Well I wasn't 'tipsy' when I read it, and knew exactly what you were saying! :)

How do you clean stone ground grits?

How about you throw them in the garbage. Get your money back.... if you can, and buy grits from a reputable mill.

Chuck Eye Steaks

Used to eat a lot of chuck-eyes back before the general population knew what they were...Now I don't see them that often, and when I do they are as expensive as rib-eyes used to be. Anyway, I always treated them just like a rib-eye. Sometimes in a soy based marinade for 30 minutes or so...for flavor. Then used the "Russian Race Horse" method(Fast & Furious)to grill. Cooked only to med rare. Anything past that and they will toughen up. I've had some awesome ones, and I have some so-so ones. HTH.

Have Fun & Enjoy!

For about the price of a chicken, you can have something like this. There are other inexpensive ones out there that will put you in the ball park.

You add a pinch of salt. How much is it?

I have measuring spoons for a 'Smidgen' a 'Pinch' and a 'Dash'
According to several 'tests' It takes 8 Pinches to fill up a Teaspoon. Based on that, I would say a pinch is 1/8 teaspoon. This was using Diamond Crystal table salt.

Tiny Cast Iron Skillets

About a year ago I bought a new Lodge 6"OD/5"ID skillet to prove a point... (to myself) after reading it took "forever" to make them non stick. My wife just rolled her eyes as I already own a dump truck full of iron cookware. Anyway, I seasoned it the non rocket scientist way twice, Cooked a little bacon in it three times. Later I cracked a single egg in a little butter...let it set...swirled it around...flipped it and slid it out on a English Muffin. It mostly sits in the cabinet. I will fry an egg in it tonight just for fun :) ~~ Like Gio's idea of dedicating it to toasting spices and nuts.

Sunday dinner after Church will be: Grilled Chicken Salads with the "Mother Sauce" of Mississippi on top. Peach Cobbler and Coffee for dessert.

The Egg -- Why Is It On Top of Everything?

A couple of poached eggs on on top of Red Beans & Rice can be a sometime good thing.

1/2 half dozen broken on top/in a pot of gumbo to poach is good when the notion strikes. ~~~ Also adding a hard boiled egg to a big bowl of gumbo can be a nice addition at times.

Runny egg on a sandwich.....No
Runny egg on a plate.....Yes
Runny egg on top of Grits....A Must! ;)

bologna..?

Two thick slices fried...Dukes Mayonnaise....sliced Vidalia onion...sliced home grown tomato...on lightly toasted bread. ~~~ About twice a year is awesome.
