Eating the Enemy: Cal Golden Bears edition

RevOrange emailed the other day to suggest a tantalizing idea for a new feature: Game Day Cuisine. Because I am all about food, I thought it a glorious idea. I figured I'd do the post on Tuesdays at lunch time while you're hungry and so you'll have plenty of time to get to the Kroger for the fixins you'll need come Saturday.

Cal week presents a bit of a challenge, but here's a little something to get you started.


Start Game Day off right with some VITAMIN POWERED Sugar Crisp (or whatever they're calling it now that it's taboo to advertise that your cereal actually contains sweetness) because you know you "[c]an't get enough of that Sugar Crisp . . . Sugar Crisp . . . Sugar Crisp . . . Can't get enough of that Sugar Crisp. It keeps me going strong!" Sugar Bear

Pre-Game Meal

Don't eat too much for breakfast, though, because you'll need room for the Barbecued Bear!

Barbecued Bear

- 3 lb bear steak cut in 2" cubes
- 1 sl salt pork, cut up
- 1 c catsup
- 1/3 c steak sauce
- 2 tb tarragon vinegar
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 tb lemon juice
- 1 ts salt
- 1 tb chili powder

Trim all fat from bear steak and cut into 2 inch cubes. Sear meat on all sides with salt pork in a heavy fry pan. Place meat in casserole. Add rest of ingredients to fry pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour sauce over meat in casserole. Cover and bake for at least 2 hours in a 325 degree F. oven, stirring occasionally until meat is tender.

Mmmm. A nice touch, don't you think? We're taking the 'cue to Cali.

So what're all y'all bringin' to the party?
