A visit to the new Cooper’s Meat Market revealed so much more going on than providing giant haunches of beef for home cooks. The new addition to Sylvan Thirty also offers a variety of take and bake dishes, an excellent wine selection and other retail purchases such as Yeti coolers, but is also a 50-seat steakhouse with a full service bar.

Cooper’s is owned by Michael Johnson, whose family runs the legendary Cooper’s in San Antonio and is now an Oak Cliff resident. “I wanted to share what my family has been doing in San Antonio all these years,” offers Johnson during a recent visit, “I am excited for the community to know that we provide the very best quality meats.”

Eat Me: TJ’s Yacht Club Burger

tj3by Steven Doyle

Do you feel the Earth rumbling just a tad? It could be that the annual craveDFW burger list is making its way to you very soon. The journey is long and arduous, filled with Kraft slices and pre-formed burger patties that have long expired in the depths of their freezer banks. But then there are the gems, the holy grail of burgers. Not many, maybe a dozen in toto found around our fair city. These are the burgers we hold dear, and we love to share with you month in and out. And we plan not just one list but two. One for chef driven restaurant burgers, and the other will be filled with burger only restaurants. Fun! Continue reading

This Father’s Day CraveDFW has partnered with The Meat Shop, the sole outlet for the Rosewood Ranches’ certified all-natural, hormone-free, antibiotic-free, grass-fed, and grain-finished Wagyu Beef. This beef makes for a terrific day by the pool, sharing with friends and family, and certainly to celebrate Dad.

Before our party started we stopped in at The Meat Shop, located in a tiny European-style market at 4410 West Lovers Lane. Here you will find freshly butchered cuts of glorious beef, Droc pork (typically found on better menus at your favorite restaurants), all-natural chickens, house-made charcuterie and smoked meats, and a selection of cheeses.  Continue reading

Knife’s John Tesar Brings Romance To Your Home (Recipe)

Steak-au-poivreby John Tesar

A pan sauce can’t be made completely ahead of time; it requires the cooking of the meat itself to provide the integral flavoring. It’s a classic fundamental technique, though, that should be in every home cook’s arsenal. At Knife, we make the pan sauce from France (poivre is French for “pepper”)—but you can use the technique with shallots, garlic, mustard, cognac, or whatever you want. Continue reading
