I would have to say that the household regular here, is a NZ Sauvignon Blanc. I do like a nice red, but not if I'm outside!


I do like your choice! I used to be more into the whites, preferring either an SB or a Johannesburg Riesling. I still use an SB for my cooking recipes or a Pinot Grigio. :D

Great way to get things started, BC! They're kind of like satays without the skewers!

So by default is this month's party about beef steaks? Or do pork and other kinds of steaks qualify as well?


Sorry - we should have clarified that. Yes, it`s beef steak. :oops:

I thought about that today as I saw both a nice pork steak and two gorgeous fish steaks (salmon and halibut) in the supermarket today. :D

Incidentally - very nice appetizer, BC, and Angela, the steak and mushrooms look fantastic! :cheers:

Many thank you's, CG. Well I guess we are settled now. I am inclined to call in and commission Wierd Al Yankovic to do a parody of Adam Levine and Maroon 5 going something like, "We've got to moove like cattle, moove like cattle."

Blatantly ripped off from "Happy Endings": Steak Me Home Tonight.

After seeing the first 2 submissions I know I'm definitely going to have to bring my "A" game!

OK - I cooked two steaks this weekend so here they are (sorry for the crummy smartphone pics - it was getting dark):

I started with a simple one - this was a medium-sized bone-in rib-eye steak.

Image

There's nothing on this steak but EVOO, Hy's Seasoning Salt and cracked black peppercorns. In fact, I would have just lit a chimney of charcoal and used one of my Outlaw's cast-iron grates, but it was getting dark and ist would have been too much trouble.

Image


This is half-done.....


Image

And here's the finished product, once again on the vintage GrannyWare plate (circa. 2007 :twisted: )


Image

This steak was thick enough but it cooked quite quickly and shot past medium-rare in a flash. Even so, the medium and medium-well parts were still great. This steak didn't even make the table, as you see.


And now - Steak # 2. This was supposed to be a London Broil but I had that steak for lunch. It wasn't pic-worthy anyway. And the store was all out of them so I had to try something different.

Image

The supermarket butcher looked at me like my head was on fire when I asked him to cut me a thick sirloin steak. He also cut it too thick (2 1/2 " instead of 1 1/2 ") but the smaller piece was still good. This is the smaller piece, with Lone Star steak rub and more ground pepper.


Image

And halfway done again.....


Image

I don't often put barbecue sauce on my steak and I only had one that worked well with beef as the others were too sweet. (Yes, it's from a Christmas gift of Tony Roma's sauces). I figured I'd doctor it up a bit so I added one teaspoon of the Worcestershire sauce. and 3 teaspoons of Denzel's Dangerous Goods hot sauce. The result was just right - not too hot, but with lots of habanero and roasted garlic taste.


Image

Here it is finished.


Image

This steak was for lunches, and it turned out a perfect medium-rare. It also sliced very nicely too.

Well, the party continues, so I'm sure I'll have one or two more to post soon. :D

CG, I get the chance to visit you at your pit, and look what you do to me. You just gave me the fiercest craving. Goodnight, your steaks look fabulous! Ribeye is also my favorite cut, a real treat. I :heart: your distinction there between a half-finished and finished one. That's funny :lol: My own tastes are such that I can enjoy eating any steak that is just past rare to well done. Though I can appreciate looking at the beauty of a rare one. Speaking of rare, it is a rare treat that I get to indulge rib-eye. Must rectify that occasion quickly. And nice touch with the Granny Ware... I, too, like to make use of mine, especially whenever I make my homemade stew. Your gourmet sirloin looks heavenly! No need to save that for lunches with me around!

Your're killing me, Brad! Image Image

Talk about appropriate party music! You should be DJ at next month's chicken event.

Seriously, from what I have previously seen, you have a lot of "A" game in you! Steaks per se, served as steaks, are not my particular forte, as you will see when I post again later a conventional one. I can get the flavor/taste, but the looks...?

I pulled this out of my freezer on Saturday and forgot about it. It came pre marinaded from the butcher in "Whiskey River" marinade. I brought it to work with me yesterday and forgot about it again :oops: Today i went to grab my lunch and saw it. Figured it was now or never. It was labeled as Beef Shoulder. Sorry for the sloppy pics. I didn't have time to plate properly. I thought the paper plates added to the block party theme.

Wolfpack-- Marvelous looking specimen there! That "Whiskey River" marinade sure gave your shoulder steak a nice coloring. The shape of it in a way reminds me of a tritip. I wonder what the flavor of that marinade is like. Nice thought on your part to plate to paper. Image
