Carnivores Unite! (#217H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

We get it: most of America runs on beef, pork and chicken. So today, Sara's got meat and lots of it. Sara marries the juicy burger marries with Korean barbecue for her special Korean Burgers. She'll even show you how to grind your own meat, no special tools needed. Hey "porkitarians," Buttermilk-Fried Pork Chops have two great things going for them - they're super juicy on the inside, extra crispy on the outside. And you'll love Sara's Polenta Lasagna - with crispy polenta cakes in place of traditional noodles, it's even easier and much quicker to make.
