The Best Grilling Secret You've Never Cooked

Posted by

Ok folks if you haven't tried skirt steak--this is your new jump off--affordable, and with the most amazing chewy (yet tender texture).

Here I've coped an awesome "a-ha" technique from my fellow Artisan author Adam Perry Lang. Make a grilling sauce--any sauce (I used a ChimiChurri). When your hot meat, fish, or chicken comes right off the grill, drag it through the sauce immediately post-grilling; when the meat is still that hot, it'll actually absorb the sauce and add flavor to your dish like nothing else!

The accompanying zucchini and red onions grilled are dipped with Labne (or thick yogurt) that's mixed with chopped fresh dill. The whole dish is then topped with toasted pistachios or almonds-- it's SICK!! And the best thing is with the Big Green Egg--the grill is going with the enough room for the cast iron skillet to do its thing.

And if that isn't enough--we threw on some whole mangoes while we were eating and scooped out the juicy hot mango sauce onto vanilla ice-cream. WHAT!!! Happy Independence Day folks. Liberate yourself from the norm!
Best,
LSQ

We loved how Christopher Gomez brings his spurtle everywhere! According to him, he only had “three ‘must haves’ for a trip down to Costa Rica in January: 1) my spurtle, 2) diamond crystal kosher salt, and 3) sunscreen.”

We hope a new set of spurtles will help Tina Knezevic who showed us her melted spatula and damaged pan, which she described as “burned, scraped, and cut.”

With a spurtle in every pot, Chrissy Abercrombie Warren says she’s “constantly washing in order to use the two I have!” We know she’ll put her new spurtle set to good use!

Spurtlemania Contest: Have You Entered Yet?

Posted by

Hi Everyone,

Since we announced the return of Spurtlemania, I’ve been thrilled to see so many devoted spurtle users in the photos we’ve received so far. I’ve also been surprised and a bit horrified to see all the destroyed pots, pans, and utensils! It looks like you all need some spurtles in your lives. One of the big reasons I love my spurtle, besides how versatile it is, is how it keeps your cookware scratch-free and your food far away from chemicals (unlike other utensils). With the competition well underway (and with only a few more days to enter), I want to share some of the entries we’ve received and encourage you all to keep sending us your submissions. Here are a few of the photos we’ve seen so far:

Think you can do better with your beat up cookware and utensils or the way that you use your spurtle? Submit your photos for your chance to win one of the FOUR free spurtle sets we’re giving away. Send your photos to us at MadHungryLSQ@gmail.com by 6PM EST this Sunday, June 23rd and stay tuned for the winner announcements on Tuesday, June 25th.

Don't forget, LSQ will also be selling her spurtle set on QVC, a week from today (6/26) around 8PM EST on In The Kitchen With David! These spurtles sold out in under 4 minutes last time, so you want to tune in early to get one for you and the cook in your life!

Spurtlemania is BACK and YOU can win a set of Spurtles!

Posted by

Hi Everyone,

When I began my television show, I kept hearing from viewers, "what is that utensil?" and "I need to have it!". With a lot of buzz, I happily created a Mad Hungry-branded spurtle, my tried and tested all-purpose kitchen tool, to share with my fans. We premiered it on QVC back in February, it completely SOLD OUT in under four minutes, with thousands on back order. Shortly after when I was out on the Mad Hungry tour, I was asked over and over by everyone I met, "where can we get your spurtle?" , "it sold out too quickly and I didn't get it", and "I finally got and LOVE mine, but want to buy more for family and friends!".  I, too, am only down to a spurtle or two, since I've gifted mine away after friends and family have asked what it was or saw me use it and loved it. It was so much positive  feedback, I knew Spurtlemania was real.

 

This is why I am psyched to tell you Spurtlemania HAS returned! We will be back on QVC's In The Kitchen With David, Wednesday, June 26th, selling my set of Spurtles. For those of you who don't know, my spurtle is my ultimate kitchen utensil. In fact, I consider it an extension of my right hand. There's nothing this trusty tool won't do: stir, scrape ,stir fry, serve, frost-- you name it, it does it, all the while without scraping your pots or melting and getting weird chemicals into your food, like other silicone and plastic utensils do.

To celebrate #QVCSpurtlemania, we are giving away FOUR sets of spurtles and you have TWO options of entering: 

For those of you that have  and love your spurtle, we want you to show us HOW you sprutle: what do you use your spurtle for? What's your favorite way to use it? Take a picture of your favorite way to use the spurtle (with the spurtle in action) and send it to MadHungryLSQ@Gmail.Com.

For those of you that don't have one, but do have the scars of not having  a spurtle: Send us your photos of your most scratched up pots and pans from years of using metal and non-bamboo cooking utensils on your cookware and those dinged-up-pieces-missing-burnt-and-melted rubber and silicone spatulas, wooden spoons other cooking utensils.  Send your photos with a short explanation of why you need a spurtle in your life to: MadHungryLSQ@Gmail.Com.

If you have  Twitter and Instagram, you can enter by first following Mad Hungry, and then tweeting and instagramming your photos with @MadHungryLSQ #QVCSpurtlemania.

All entries MUST be submitted by Sunday, June 23rd at 6PM EST. Winners will be chosen on Tuesday, June 25th. 

Best,

LSQ & The MH Team
