Two men allegedly stole $120-worth of carne asada from Vallarta Supermarket on Sherman Way in Burbank on Sunday, police said. At about 10:15 a.m., the two suspects left the market carrying a package of meat, police said. A store employee confronted the pair, demanding that they pay for the merchandise. When they refused, there was a struggle for the package. Eventually, the suspects prevailed and fled on foot with the meat, Burbank police Lt. Eddie Ruiz said. The men were both described as 23- to 24-years-old Latino men. One reportedly had a thin build, wore a gray hooded sweatshirt and was about 5 feet 8 inches tall.

A 44-year-old man was hospitalized for chest pains Tuesday after he allegedly attempted to flee a Burbank Vons with $864 worth of meat and cleaning supplies stuffed in a shopping cart, police said. The man, Artur Khalatyan of Glendale, had entered Vons on Pass Avenue at 2:30 p.m. and allegedly tried to make off without paying after filling his shopping cart with 21 packages of “expensive cuts” of meat and 11 bottles of cleaning detergent, said Burbank Police Lt. Eddie Ruiz. But a store employee who recognized Khalatyan from a similar stunt he allegedly tried to pull off just days before had already alerted loss prevention officers, Ruiz said.

DAVID SILVA Shortly after I broke up with my girlfriend, Angel, I took a job as a clerk at a health food store in Costa Mesa. The job paid slightly above minimum wage, and my weekly hours were always kept slightly below the number at which the owners would have to provide me benefits. But the store was just a couple of blocks from my apartment and offered me a big employee discount inside its full-service restaurant, so I was happy. I've never been a big fan of health food, and never less so than when I was in my early 20s. Raised in a Puerto Rican household, I found the very thought of putting anything in my body that wasn't fried, pork-based or heavily salted almost offensive.

Remember that commercial, featuring Clara Peller's plaintive query, "Where's the Beef"? Clara would have been in heaven, Brazilian-style, at Gauchos Village. This enormous all-you-can-eatery features swords filled with all things beef, as well as chicken, lamb and pork, carved to order. Vegetarians might want to take a pass, as meat certainly takes center stage in a constant parade of protein. Dining at this churrascaria (spit-roasted barbecue eatery) is quite an experience.

Animal Planet. Discovery Channel. Food Network. Three great channels to watch if you are hungry. I have all the respect in the world for animal lovers, vegetarians, vegans or any other form of non- or semi-meat eaters. But I am a carnivore. I love meat, any kind of meat. I salivate when I watch documentaries about salmon runs in the Northwest or albacore migrations off the coast of Mexico. “Deadliest Catch” is not a show about crab fisherman; it is a show about angels on Earth doing God’s work.

Without a doubt, barbecue is the national comfort food of the United States. Whether you are grilling hamburgers and hot dogs over a backyard charcoal grill or smoking baby backs in a smoker the size of an RV, barbecued meat, poultry, fish and vegetables are an American staple that dominates, especially during those hot summer months. Kansas City, Texas and North and South Carolina each claims to be the barbecue capital of the U.S. When you talk about barbecue, every place has its own distinct ideas and flavors, including Downtown Burbank.

Tucked away in a small corner between Glendale and Montrose, Schreiner's Fine Sausages is easily accessible to the regulars who know the establishment well. Just walking to the front entrance, my senses were assailed with the smoky aroma of specialty meats, promising more delights inside. Schreiner's has been in the area for more than 30 years and is like an old friend, always happy to see you — judging by the very friendly staff, dressed in dirndls, the traditional dresses worn in Austria and southern Germany, to match the atmosphere.

People must not treat meat cavalierly Last Sunday’s recall of 143 million pounds of beef by the U.S. Department of Agriculture should provide a loud and clear wake-up call that federal inspection is not adequate to ensure a safe meat supply. This largest meat recall in U.S. history was actually brought on by an animal rights organization’s undercover video showing a California slaughterhouse workers using kicks, electric shock, high-pressure water hoses and a forklift to force sick or injured animals onto the kill floor.

Responding to reports that investigators in the Czech Republic found equine evidence in the chain's frozen meatballs, Ikea said that all meatballs sold in its U.S. stores are sourced from an American supplier and "contain only beef and pork from animals raised in the U.S. and Canada. " The affected product was sold as a packaged beef and pork item in more than a dozen European countries, but not in the U.S., the L.A. Times reported . The Czech State Veterinary Administration confirmed on its website that samples of the meatballs, which are made in Sweden, contained horse DNA. Shipments of the meatballs have been suspended, according to the agency, which said it sent its findings to European Union authorities.

Frankenstorm Sandy is one more dramatic demonstration that climate change and its extreme weather patterns are now part of our future. Although we're unlikely to reverse climate change, we can still mitigate its effects by reducing our driving, our energy use and our meat consumption. Yes, meat consumption. A 2006 United Nations report estimated that meat consumption accounts for 18% of man-made greenhouse gases. A 2009 article in World Watch magazine suggested that it may be closer to 50%. Carbon dioxide, the principal greenhouse gas, is emitted by burning forests to create animal pastures and by combustion of fossil fuels to confine, feed, transport and slaughter animals and to refrigerate their carcasses.

This has not been a banner year for the meat industry. A study of more than 120,000 people by the Harvard School of Public Health confirmed once again that meat consumption raises the risk of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Margaret Chan, director general of the World Health Organization, warned that routine use of antibiotics to promote animal growth in factory farms is causing “the end of modern medicine.” No wonder U.S. per capita meat consumption has been dropping by nearly 4% annually.

San Francisco Sub in Glendale might be the ?little sandwich shop that could.? Several factors during our visit indicated they are still working out the kinks but the signs are quite promising that they are moving in the right direction. The décor, ambience and layout of toppings are no different than any of the national sandwich chains but there?s a definite earnestness in their desire to please. They offer two sizes ($4.50 small and $6.50 large) for most of the sandwiches. They used to offer a size in between but that is now covered up on the menu board.

There are mysteries in life that I will never be able to explain. The imagination of a child. A man’s fascination with baseball and grilling meat. And the fact that virtually every main street in Burbank is in a continual state of road repair. It’s Saturday morning, which at our house means food. And SpongeBob. And gym class. And tantrums. And doodling on my ridiculous mug shot in the paper. And food. By 9 a.m., I’ll be daydreaming about what choice cut of beef to purchase at the Handy Market today.
