Aug 11: Japanese; Cross Rib Steak and Burgundy with Egg Noodles


We were shooting another Lunch with Philip and Greg and our guest chose Sushi Roku in Pasadena. The atmosphere was appropriate, and the food – especially the eggplant in our bento boxes – was excellent.

Lunch was $19.60 per serve, with tax and tip.


We had some cross-rib steaks in our freezer and decided to make a ‘beef and burgundy’ style casserole. It was partially successful, but lacked a lot of the depth of a real beef and burgundy.

  • The .69 lb cross rib steak was $5.98, or $2.99 per serve
  • A packet of frozen pearl onions is $1.69 for a 16oz pack, but we used the last quarter, or 21c per serve
  • We used the second half of the baby bella mushrooms from the kebabs: $2.49 or 63c per serve
  • One cup of red wine is around $1.33 or 67c a serve
  • Egg noodles are $1.99 for the pack, but we only used half, or 50c per serve.

Dinner tonight could have had a bit more flavor. It was okay, but lacking excitement, for $5.00 per serve.
