Me too, GB -
I've never, ever liked them, but I'm really trying now. The only ones I can handle are the portabellos. I will say, though, they are really fun to slice with my new knife set!

The way I started was by throwing them into my spaghetti sauce because everything tastes good with tomatoes.

Then I tried them with chicken and alfredo pasta, because everything tastes good with cream and butter on top.

Now, I'll be grilling them a la Bucky, because everything tastes good when it's grilled.

Marinate cubes of steak, along with vegetables, and/or seafood in this marinade and grill until desired doneness. Just use the marinade portion of this recipe:


Yield: Approx. 6 - 8 oz Portions


3 lbs. Flank, Skirt, or Hanger Steak
1-2 Fresh Jalapeno or Serrano Chiles
6 Medium Cloves of Garlic
1 cup loosely packed fresh Cilantro, rinsed and dried
2 Tbsp. Fresh Thyme
1/2 Medium sized Red Onion OR 4 Shallots, coarsely chopped
2-3 Tbsp. Honey
Juice of 2 Limes
3/4 cup Corn Oil
Kosher Salt to taste


Combine all ingredients except for the steak and salt in a food processor or blender, and blend until ingredients are well incorporated. Use just one of the chilis, then add in another if you want it hotter. For one chili, use 2 Tbsp. Honey; use 3 Tbsp. Honey for two chiles. In a ziplock bag or shallow dish, place steak and approx. 1/2 cup of the marinade. Massage marinade into both sides of the meat, and marinate overnight in the refrigerator, turning the meat at least twice.

Prepare Grill to Medium-High. Remove meat from the refrigerator, and let it sit at room temp. for at least 30 minutes. Season both sides of the steak liberally with the Kosher salt and place on the grill. Cook to desired doneness, approx 4 minutes per side for Medium Rare. Using a sharp knife, slice steak on a bias to approx. 1/8"-1/4" slices. Drizzle the remaining marinade over the meat and serve

Thanks for responding everyone! Sorry but somehow I overlooked the responses until now. I love mushrooms bucky. DH can tolerate them but he's not a big fan. Oh well, just means more for me.

Is 2 hours enough for the chuck to get tender bucky? Isn't that a pretty tough cut of meat if its not cooked for a long time?

I bought some of Emeril's original not long ago and tried it but I'm not a big fan of it.....it had a real woodsy taste. Had I been able to smell it before buying it I could of known I wouldn't care for it just by the smell. I really thought it would have a spicy taste with him always saying BAM! Oh well I'll just pass it along to someone else in the family.

the BF, my brother and my friend tina and i made some good ones.they were made with marinated sirloin cubes, bell pepper, hunks of portabellas, oyster mushrooms, and cherry tomatoes. we broiled them but i have had grilled kebabs that were great.
i imagine tenderloin cubes would be delish instead of sirloin!.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
