Grilled Banana with chocolate sauce and vannila ice cream

On Friday night when I review my blog, I’ve just realize that I’ve never posted any desert recipes before. So far I just concentrate on main course recipes. But now, I’ll try to start posting desert recipes on this blog. But of course, it has to be grilled! For the beginning I’ll post a very simple recipe. All you need is just a banana and various additional topping (it’s up to you, you can put anything you want). In this recipe I use chocolate sauce, almond, vanilla ice cream and strawberry. So simple, isn’t it? It only takes less than 20 minutes. And here’s the complete recipe.


2 bananas, unpeeled

Chocolate sauce


Vanilla ice cream

Honey (optional)


Slice bananas in a half lengthwise and crosswise. If you like sweet, you can brush honey on cut sides of bananas.

Preheat grill for low heat.

Grill bananas for over 2 minutes each sides, or until grill marks appear.

Put grilled bananas on a serving plate. Top the bananas with two scoops of vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce. Sprinkle almonds on top of ice cream. Place strawberry or cherry for the final touch.

Remember, this is a basic recipe and it’s customizable. You can change the ice cream with whipped cream, or change the chocolate sauce with melted cheese. Just let your imagination lead your way!

The most expensive beef ever...

It is believed that the most expensive beef is the Wagyu beef. Originally, the beef are harvested from wagyu cattle which breed in Kobe, Japan. In Kobe, the cattle get special treatments from the farmer. Everiday the cattle are fed with beer, massaged with sake, brushed to set their fur, and fed in grain fedder.

Due to the popularity of wagyu/kobe beef in United States and Europe, its make people try to duplicate the beef. They crossbred the domestically-raised wagyu with Angus cattle. They also apply some of Kobe traditiosn, like fed their cattle with beer and massaged with sake. However, there's still differences between the original Kobe beef and "Kobe style" beef. Some said that the "Kobe style" beef have darker meat and a bolder flavor.
