A Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Beefsteak Go Down

We had flank steak, naturally cut into thin strips, for dinner last night. My older boy doesn’t care much for steak in any form, and particularly disliked the flavor of the marinade Jane used. We consequently teased him about some of the things he does like. There’s an ice cream place we’ve been to on vacation, for example, that sells Twizzler-flavored ice cream. David’s been known to order it with Reeses Peanut Butter Cups mixed in. We suggested that if he liked that, he might also like his steak better if he dipped in sugar.

He tried it.

He actually tried it.

On the other hand, he also actually ate some of his steak….

    Oh, that’s funny! Some marinades have sugar in them, so he’s probably not that crazy, right? (Ketchup is full of sugar . . . )

    Not to mention barbecue sauce….not that he likes either ketchup or barbecue sauce.
