A simple filling of steak and cream cheese makes these Steak Stuffed Jalapenos wrapped in bacon a popular appetizer.

Steak Stuffed Jalapenos


I challenged Big Daddy, aka Wesley, aka my other half, to create one recipe each month for His assignment? A manly dish.

Lord knows, when it comes to meat, I could really care less. But, considering this is the most searched for recipe on Call Me PMc and steak and more steak are also very popular, even with the craptastic photos are very popular, I realize the demand for beef, hearty meaty recipes. I’m just a scared of whay he may come up with. The last time he made something he stuffed pork in pork and threw it on the grill! I don’t know about that, but readers like it!

So what category should I put his recipes in? Big Daddy’s Dishes, Wesley’s grub, Manly food, Real Men Cook, Hunting camp food?? Leave a suggestion in the comments.

For those of you that love a little spice, but need a little hearty as well, these  Steak Stuffed Jalapenos are perfect. We used chuck eye steak, but any cheaper cut would work. I wouldn’t use filet, but you certainly could.

Chuckeye steak is the more fatty end of a ribeye, but it’s much cheaper. It’s often referred to as the ‘poor man’s ribeye’. It’s a good alternative to a ribeye with a little more fat and a little less tender. Most people can’t tell the difference though. Give them an extra beer before serving and they’ll never know it’s not a ribeye.

But where does it come from?

A ribeye is cut from the 6th rib to the 12th rib of the cow. A chuck eye is cut from the 5th rib. I don’t know these things, I asked my butcher.

  1. Works so much better in an air fryer you don’t have to turn them and the cream cheese doesn’t run out
