Steak Kabobs @ Dakota Co. Fair in MN


For years, My best friend and I would spend way to much time & Money at this
stand. An older gentleman who only sold steak kabobs and could smell them
from the other end of the grounds.

Nice chunks, perfectly cooked, asked for many years what he used and got
nothing but a wink & smile. Then we came up with a plan !

I'd go and buy 10 of them to keep him busy while my buddy walked around the back of the
tent to peek. it turned out it was nothing but Cavenders Greek Seasoning...That's It !

Each year after that we still continued to stop by and support him, he remembered us and
shared that this would be his last year and offered not only his seasoning secret but his
prep and cooking method.

To this day when I make them using his first name people always comment on how good
they are and what my secret is, being true to my word all they get is a wink and a smile

The Alaska State Fair starts next week! Mine are Pork Chop on a Stick, Steak Tacos, Pretzels and we always grab a bag of Becky's Kettle on the way out.
The wife goes for the Reuben Haus Reuben Sandwich and the hand dipped ice cream bars.

I don't go for all this fried "anything you can" food that is the current trend. I'm old school. Sausage, peppers and onions hero with fresh lemonade followed by freshly fried zeppole with as much powdered sugar as they will hold.

My favorites are the local foods - walleye fingers, wild rice, Norwegian lingonberry ice cream sodas, honey and sunflower seed ice cream.

But I also like to share a giant juicy peach from Washington State in our Horticulture Building or have a macaron from the downtown French bakery. The Mexican fruit palettas are good on a hot day and a rare treat the rest of the year.

There's a family who sent all their daughters to college with the money made by their onion ring stand and I will stand in line quite a while and pay quite a lot for those perfect delicacies. It's just fun to get up that close and have a good look at what a major, messy operation those folks put themselves through each year.

My favorite old-time fair food is a corn dog with yellow mustard on it. It's hard to get a good one. The last one I ordered had such a hopeless piece of meat inside that I couldn't eat it.

Oh, did I mention Tom Thumb donuts fresh out of the fryer dusted with cinnamon and sugar? Eat 'em fast. They won't taste very good when they cool off.
I agree a good corn dog is hard to find. I bought one at our local fair, and when I ate it I was so disappointed. They didn't use corn meal at all, just the same batter they dipped all of their dessert confections in. I was not happy!

And I am a sucker for donuts, they didn't sell any at our fair, but the ones you describe sound delish!

I forgot that last year we went to the East Idaho fair and they sell Utah Scones there. So freaking delicious! For those who don't know a Utah scone is like a dough ball that's deep fried until cooked through, it's warm, fluffy, and served with honey butter, or it is coasted in cinnamon and sugar. 1,000 times better than those scones you eat with tea or coffee in my opinion. 🤤
