O:T G.O.A.T Foods

Submitted by MichiganFan1984 on July 16th, 2018 at 12:59 PM

With Big Ten Media Days next week and Fall camp after that, I’m guessing OT season is finally going to end so I wanted to squeeze in part 6 of my GOAT Series. Not sure if this will be last for this offseason or not.

What do you believe are the G.O.A.T Foods. Criteria is the following, 1. 1 item, not a meal. That’s it... it’s pretty simple.

Here are mine in order. Let’s do top 5.

1. Ice Cream Cake

2. Prime Rib... slow roasted and cooked medium rare to medium

3. French Onion Soup baked with cheese

4. Bacon wrapped onion rings

5. Pizza

Morels are fantastic, certainly.  Not sure where you are, but look for hedgehogs (mushrooms).  They are known locally (Oregon) as gems of the forest.  We get both morels and hedgehogs, and its hard to say which I prefer more.

I haven't found good local harvesting for morels, yet, but I live about 30 minutes away from very good "hunting" grounds for chanterelles, hedgehogs and truffles.

You have never had good burnt ends.  Many places that serve "Burnt Ends" are just using fatty cuts from the brisket instead of actually using, you know, the burnt ends that naturally result from properly seasoning and smoking brisket.

In my experience, they can be especially amazing when they are the ends of pastrami.

I can kind of agree, because filet is an inferior cut of meat and I am baffled why people like it.  It lacks the fat that makes steak taste great and has no texture it's just mushy.  A good NY strip, ribeye, or cross-cut short rib(think galbi or tira de asado) beats it everytime.

#1 is a toss up between Canadian Walleye that was swimming less than an hour before its breaded fillets hit the hot oil.

and Venison tenderloin rolled in flower, fried in butter, on the night of the kill.

follow both with a Woodford Reserve Double Oaked, neat.

A few that come to mind...

  • Ribeye, Ribs, and Bacon in the meat category
  • Italian Subs, Burritos, and Gyros in the "sandwich" category
  • Coleslaw, bbq baked beans, grilled corn on cob in the sides category
  • Caprese in the salad category
  • Cheesecake in the dessert category

And now I am salivating.

Maybe not top 5 all-time but every time I come home to MI I have to get certain foods.

1.  Whole #15 on white at Intermission Deli (I'm from Saginaw)

2. Tony's steak sandwich grilled with pizza cheese (Still from Saginaw)

3. Mackinaw Island Fudge ice cream.  Superman 2nd.

4. Jonny's (RIP) chicken wing pizza (back 'home' in Nashville).

5. Any of the meats.  Wings, steak, ribs.

I've bought the same bread directly from Hamilton Street Bakery and tried to make my own.  Just not the same.  Close but it's all ingredients.  Certain type of deli meat, condiments.  Store bought just not cutting it.  Cannot beat their price either, for as much sub as you get no one comes close.

Also Maria Elena's bakery, which used to be in Carrollton, but I think its in the Township now...???  That place had the best pork carnitas, my mom used to buy a few pounds after church on Sunday and we'd munch on it all day.  God I miss that place, all of their food was amazing!

I'm appalled that steak has three votes for being cooked medium in only 24 posts (so far).  Steak should never - NEVER - be cooked further than medium rare, or you've ruined it.

/step stool

  1. Steak in all of its flavors (rare to med rare, no 'sauce')
  2. Prime Rib (rare to med rare)
  3. Walleye/salmon
  4. Caramel
  5. Creme Brulee'
