Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Prime Rib at Golden Nugget Buffet

One of our traditions before going to Las Vegas is watching the movie Vegas Vacation with Chevy Chase and Beverly D'Angelo.  There is a great clip of Cousin Eddie (Randy Quaid) and Clark at a Las Vegas buffet.  As horrible as they portrait the buffet in reality most buffets in Las Vegas range from good to excellent even offering cooked while you wait items like omelets, eggs or stir fry.  Most also offer roast beef, pork, or turkey sliced the way you like it.  While there are fast food restaurants in Las Vegas, the buffets tend to be a better value for your food dollar.  They are all you can eat and include your drink of choice with some even offering complimentary beer and wine with the meal.  The food choices are considerably healthier for you than fast food.  There are appetizers, salads (make your own, pre-made), several choices for the main course, and a delectable array of deserts!  The only drawback is buffets encourage over eating.

Las Vegas is a city where you can eat like a king for next to nothing and even sometimes for nothing by getting the meals comped.  Casinos will give you free complimentary meals, reduce or eliminate room charges and other free perks based on your play.  In addition to comps there are coupon specials for 2 buffet meals for the price of one and similar restaurant savings.  All drinks both alcoholic and non-alcoholic are free when playing.  If you don't feel like playing there are bars within the casinos when the price will range from cheap to expensive depending on the casino.

We stayed at the Golden Nugget, one of our favourite casino and resorts.  Their buffet is quite good!  Pictured is the prime rib at the Golden Nugget buffet.  The chef graciously posed for the photo shoot.  He was very friendly as was the majority of the staff throughout the casino and resort.  The dinner buffet costs $18.99 per person which is not a bad price.  However, my husband was able to get a comp so we ate free!  The Golden Nugget buffets offers a seafood and more dinner Friday through Sunday for $21.99 per person as well as breakfast ($10.99) and lunch ($11.99) buffets daily.
