    There is, not far off 412, a place up in the edge of Missouri called Strawberry's, in Holcomb, Mo., which does a pork steak that is a thing of beauty, and if you eat one for lunch, you likely won't want dinner. They're massive.


    Would absolutely recommend Strawberry’s if you’re in the area.  Concur that pork steak is awesome.  Also recommend the ribs, which i normally order dry then add sauce.

  2. I am absolutely fascinated by this entire thread.  I was raised in NE Arkansas, attended college and law school in NW Arkansas and have lived and worked most of my life in the Ozarks.  My wife and I and are now retired and still live here.  When I was a young man, my father and I would have dinner (lunch) with my great aunt and uncle every Saturday.  Dad was fond of wilted lettuce which was hot bacon grease poured over lettuce.  We would often have squirrel and dumplings, roast duck, deer chili or summer sausage. As far as veggies, most were fresh from the garden or home canned, including greens, green beans, tomatoes, etc.  My favorite dessert was strawberry or blackberry cobbler.  We would occasionally kill a hog and butcher it.  This would usually last all day and was a good excuse for a family get together.  Another favorite which comes to mind is crackling (deep fried pig skin) cornbread  and chow chow (corn and tomato relish).  Good luck with Bulrush.  We hope to try it the next time in StL.

  3. New guy here.  I’m looking forward to participating in the forums and have learned a lot from just browsing.  I don’t have any connection to the restaurant business other than as a customer.  I would say that the best meal I ever had was at Charley Trotters in Chicago,  my favorite restaurants are Commanders Palace in NOLA and Husk in Charleston.  My wife and I are both fairly recently retired, and are looking forward to spending some time together in the kitchen.  Anyway, that’s enough rambling from me.
