Heirloom Kentucky Beefsteak Tomatoes

by on August 20, 2010

Wow! these kentucky beefsteak tomatoes are fabulous!¬†They’re huge, heavy, juicy and sweet.

We amazed at how silky they are, so little seeds and so meaty. These are the best beefsteak tomatoes we’ve ever had and they’re definitely on our list to grow for next year.

Tonights dinner is a quick tomato salad with Japanese shiso, grilled eggplant and grilled homemade sausage.

The tomatoes are certainly the stars of the meal. Wish you all could have a taste of these amazing tomatoes.

have a great weekend!

What a beautiful color those tomatoes are! Homemade sausage sounds like the perfect accompaniment.

Gorgeous! Dinner sounds like a lovely combination of flavors. I can’t get enough of ripe tomatoes this time of year. Do you grow your own shiso too? I can’t buy it around here and have been thinking of growing some.

We are growing our own shiso. It’s very happy amongst all our Viet herbs. This year we have them in pots on drip irrigation and they are as happy as can be. They’ve done well just straight in the ground, even with our poor soil as well.

Growing shiso here in Ohio in a big pot, too. It’s come back by itself for two years in a row now. Used it for ice cream and as a condiment for sashimi. What do you do with yours? I hate seeing it all go to seed!!!

Right now we are often eating it straight with some fresh tomatoes and a little olive oil and salt. With Vietnamese dishes, we often eat herbs alongside many dishes, so now shiso gets thrown in that mix as well.

stunning! you guys scored! my tomatoes were not as successful this year however my neighbors were! we would pull them of the plant and eat them straight with a little sea salt. perfect little snack. i also love rubbing the tomatoes on to toasted french bread with a little olive oil and sea salt. yum.
