Re: Cooking A Good Steak

Nit,

I'd still tear those up. Go back and look some of the aged ribeyes I did. The drier surface gave me more GB than I expected on a few of them.

Going to do a Vegas hotel room butter basted ribeye (spreadable butter ftw!) for Father's Day tonight.

Foo,

Yum.

AA,

Looks tasty--how does bison ribeye compare? Never had it.

A hulking, awkwardly cut ribeye I'm about to cook in straight butter in my copper chef in my hotel room. The aim here is function vs. aesthetics.

Low cook complete. Resting until temp evens out. One final kiss in butter on Med hi should do it.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak



Not bad for a Vegas hotel room steak, but below what I usually do.

Full disclosure, this steak was cut pretty unevenly. The thinnest part of the eye was straight up well done. For uneven, awkward cuts I think SV is the way to go.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

Ribeye fans,

Stopped by WF again and the $11.99/lb sale was still on. This guy was right at a pound:



About 2.5 min per side on 6/10, then maybe 45s per side butter sear on 8/10.



Was a little concerned because it was cut with one side significantly thicker than the other, but things worked out just fine:

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

That's beautiful El D! Also, that ribeye was probably cut from the chuck end, which explains the large and delicious cap.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

How do you guys get the fat on the ends of your steak to melt in your mouth when it's medium rare? I basically have to cook my steaks well done for that to happen. If I cook it medium rare, the fat is usually tough like gristle. It's annoying because I like a medium rare steak but hate when the fat is tough to chew.

Wait am I doing steak wrong if I don't eat the fat and gristle?

So this is a copper chef pan that we got as a present from my wife's mom:

http://www.copperchef.com/shop.php?g...FQS1wAodMTEBgA

A solid multipurpose pan--does many things well (steak, grill cheese, pancakes) but nothing elite. Cast iron is superior for steaks imo. But it does well enough to use when I'm a bit lazy (clean up is breeze).

Next time you make a steak, cut a small piece with fat on it and cook it well done. Try the fat part. It literally melts in your mouth when you chew.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

As mentioned previously it's my opinion that ribeyes should be cooked about medium for fat to be delicious. You would have to overcook the heck out of a ribeye for it not to be juicy. Other option is obv low and slow reverse sear to render or cook a big hunk like a prime rib in oven. I almost always grill my ribeyes and love them just can't really walk away from grill because of flare ups (especially the prime ribeyes) those babies go up in flames within minutes!

RV,

Doing pan cooked reverse sear, the fat gets nice and soft for me around medium rare.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

Cooked a choice steak tonight using my new favorite technique of warming to 124 in a 200 oven, then searing 1m/side over a charcoal chimney starter. Sear was decent, but noticeably less impressive than previous efforts with prime cuts.

Is this technique execution variance or is fat content known to affect sear?

Related: rub some medium sized trimmings from the fat cap of a brisket and lay across the top of the brisket for the duration of the smoke. That's good eats.

mostly execution variance, probably surface moisture. But this isn't the first post ITT pointing out the same issue between prime and lesser steaks.

Gaming,

Marbling level of steak can def have a big impact on sear quality.
