They stole 3 freezers worth of a Whole Cow meat, steaks, etc. We get a cow slaughtered every year, worth around $1,500 or more by the time you pay for processing and the cow.

On a side note, my friend's dad's house was broken into at night. All they stole was meat from the freezer. This was a year or so ago.
lol at a couple thugs carrying away 600 pounds of frozen beef. Talk about a jackpot. Do you even report that kind of thing to police/insurance? Who is going to believe it?

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

20 oz of marbled prime ribeye goodness:



With the stove being used for various and sundry tasks, I decided to put the cast iron on the grill and cook it there:



Let the steak come to room temp for ~75 minutes. No salt or pepper. Patted dry, then rendered the fat strip for 5-6 minutes:



Cooked on medium heat for 3+ min/side with a few crushed, un-peeled garlic cloves. After the first 2 minutes of cooking, I added a hunk of clarified butter. After the first flip, I salted the steak liberally with kosher salt and basted with the butter. Repeated the salt/baste process on the other side after 3 min.


Took the steak out of the cast iron, then turned the grill to high and got the cast iron screaming hot. Seared each side for exactly 1 min, then let the steak rest for 10 min:



As usual, I always forget to photodocument as I eat. But here is the first "cut." Steak was excellent, but unfortunately closer to medium than medium rare. Still, it tasted fantastic:



My girlfriend made Eggs Sardou and Dauphinois Potatoes for herself:



Dessert: Baskin Robbins ice cream cake. I'll update later with pics.

It seemed to work out better than the stove top. I feel like I had more temperature control, if that makes sense. I think it gives the cast iron a more even distribution of heat as well. It definitely gets hotter than my stove, so it's good for the quick sear.

I'll definitely be using the cast iron/grill method again.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

ribeye, brought to room temp. Salted heavily with coarse salt, rubbed off prior to cooking, and then re-salted and done with cracked pepper.




The filthy martini I drank while making up the steak.




The dog approves of both the steak and martini.



After resting. Cooked 4 min per side on a propane grill, full flame.



Served with asparagus (salt, pepper, olive oil, also grilled)


Spoiler:


This was closer to medium than medium rare, but was delicious. I think the heavy pre-salting worked some magic.

I'm gonna get crucified, but I think I'd rather eat what the girlfriend made. The steak looks awesome, but the eggs and potatoes look incredible!

No arguments here. It's Eggs Sardou, and it's insanely good. The potatoes were ridiculous also.

LOL, i'm not sure. We never called the police to report what we found, or not found I guess. Of course we only found this out 5-6 days after the police came and took a report/pictures.

Re: Cooking A Good Steak

Your kids have it good. I was eating chuck steak wrapped in bacon my dad bought out of the back of a truck when I was a kid.

That plate looks perfect. What kind of mac?
