Zach's Yak Attack (RECIPE): (Manly) Turkey Bacon Yak

Thanks to Zachary "Mountain Man" Faulkner for this delicious and manly yak recipe.

So, this is what a manly dinner looks like before I ingest it.

A pound of turkey bacon, cooking next to a pound of delicious yak.

I don't recommend eating all of it in one sitting, the yak lasted two meals and the bacon made appearances for four meals.



Now, my cooking style is on the fly and with little to no measuring of any kind - I like to see what happens with a pinch here, a dab that, a top coming off...well, that's just too much.

Anyways, in the yak I added (to taste, after some "testing"): Garlic Salt, Onion Powder, Cayenne Pepper (me likes a little heaaat), and two eggs.

After it was all mixed together, I patted own the outside of each burger (on both sides) with an even ratio mix of ground pepper and salt (again, to taste).

Cook to you own liking, apply carb exterior with bacon, and I enjoyed garnishing it with some Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ Sauce - pro tip: add in some honey for some custom honey bbq action.

That about sums up my cooking adventure.

As always, a nice cold one goes well with red meat, and a manly pose while eating is quasi optional, meaning you should at least strike a pose initially for the first bite, or raise an arm in triumphant delight on the last bite.

Bon App├ętit!

Yak Rodeo for Fall 2011: Jonah Jumps The Gate



Nope.

We'd never seen a 1200 pound yak bull jump a fence gate either.

Until today.

We've entitled this photo "Jonah Jumps The Fence."

Other than this moment, yak rodeo proceeded as normal.

Which is to say, never a dull moment when you are yakking.
