Binging with Babish 6M Subscriber Special: Turf N’ Turf from Parks & Recreation

Want to cook second breakfast with me in New Zealand? You could win the ultimate Lord of the Rings adventure in New Zealand thanks to my friends at Omaze. Support Action Against Hunger and enter here:

With the exception of Ben Wyatt’s likely fandom, however, Lord of the Rings has nothing to do with the subject of today’s episode: Parks & Rec’s Ron Swanson. In wishing to celebrate the big 6M, Ron’s favorite order at Charles Mulligan’s Steakhouse seemed fitting: prime, dry-aged beef with a side of prime, dry-aged beef. Forgive me, for I have sinned. Thank you all SO MUCH for helping me reach 6 million subscribers!!

    JUST SO YA KNOW: We put out our cigars as soon as the cameras stopped rolling. Smoking is bad. Juuling is bad. Quitting is hard, but I did it, and so can you!

    There’s a carnivorous diet, and then there’s Ron Swanson, whose carnivore level currently sits at “master”. His level of meat consumption is not meant for mere mortals.

    “Which tastes like a delicious tire fire.”
    I’m glad even you seem to think so. Allegedly it gets better once you’re past the first bottle, but so far I’ve only met one person who managed to drink an entire bottle of it and then decided to buy another.

    • Alexander Moorehead says:

      Peated scotch is an extremely acquired taste. I didn’t get it until I’d started my night with a dirty martini and a friend poured me some Laphroaig. I’d tried it before, but the taste buds previously saturated with one flavor were then able to taste the more subtle notes behind “tire fire.” Now I always have a bottle, though I do love the non-peated stuff too.

    • Mitchell Gillett says:

      Islay scotch is really something to work into. It’s usually better to try something with less smoke like Highland park and worm your way towards the smokier stuff. Once you acclimate you can pick out lots of stuff behind the smoke and it’s amazing.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      I like a Laphroaig once in a while, but it’s an acquired taste for sure. I made my mum (who loathes whiskey) try some one once, and she complained that it was like drinking kippers.

    • fnordpojk says:

      You guys should really stay away from the Bruichladdich Octomore series, then..

    • Chris Offutt says:

      Islays are a mood dependent pour for me. It’s good, but if you aren’t in the mood for it then it isn’t enjoyable. A nice cold night and an Islay is just the right thing to sip on for the evening.

  6. Sarah Danvers says:

    Congrats on 6 mill, Babish!!! I was watching back when you were still using “Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs”. You’ve come a long way and you certainly deserve it. Keep up the awesome work.

  7. GentlemanPenguin says:

    *Realtor:* So what are you looking for in a house?
    *Babish:* Well, it’s gotta have a big kitchen.
    *Realtor:* Anything else?
    *Babish:* …Second smaller kitchen.

  8. Michael JM says:

    Bob Marley shirt says “I’m cool”.
    Giant gold watch says “I’m a lawyer”.

  9. R.I.P Geno Cultshit says:

    You know you’ve got a big ass steak when it can stand on its own unassisted.

  10. Tom McMorrow says:

    When your attorney is wearing a Bob Marley t-shirt you know you’re in for some Fear and Loathing shenanigans.

  11. crazypoptarts09 says:

    Your attorney dresses like my school’s resident drug dealer.

  12. TheDeadPoet says:

    “I just bought a HOUSE”. Babish sounds like he hasn’t quite come to terms with it yet.

  13. Armoured Bobcat says:

    “I can’t wait to show u the kitchen”

    *points at the whole house*

  14. SpaceyBoi 64 says:

    Try making: “Liam’s Loaded Lasagna” from I Am Not Okay With This

  15. Azizi XIV says:

    “Stroking beef with our fingers”
    God, I love the fact I grasp the meaning immediately.

  16. Wheelspin Productions says:

    Ron Swanson: How did you cook my steak?

    Chef: We pan seared it I vegetable oil

    Ron Swanson: In *WHAT* oil?

  17. Old School Prince says:

    Babish: “let’s celebrate 6M subscribers.”

    Babish: *has 6.34M subscribers as of a few hours ago*

    Me: 👀

  18. xXIICausticIIXx says:

    I would love to see a “Bartending with Babish” series. I’m sure a lot of people would enjoy it.

  19. Jeff says:

    Babish: Who needs drugs when you got steak

    *Drug overdose rates decline by 99%*

  20. Scott Anderson says:

    Me: “Who is your spirit animal?”

    Gordon Ramsay: ” A lion.”
    Tom Colicchio: “An eagle.”
    Eric Ripert: “A shark.”
    Babish: “J. Kenji Lopez….”

    Me: Stop.
