Dinner Plans for Saturday the 21st

I'll be grilling a couple of pork chops tonight. Sesame noodles and a salad with complete the meal.

Just remembered, I have to brine the chops!

Sounds good Andy. By the way, I brine all my pork chops together, and then pack them by two's in Zip Locks for the freezer.

We get to play with adorable Cheyenne and have a burger cook out their house. I made Cheryl's southwestern corn and black bean salad, and also an Asian cucumber and white onion salad. I don't think Cheyenne will like either, but she sure can put away a big burger for such a tiny little girl.

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Oh forgot, mascarpone brownies for dessert. Enough mascarpone left over for tiramisu.

Half sandwich of Liverwurst. I am only eating because I have to, not because I am hungry.

I started out with a 2#, boneless rib eye, 3" thick.

Set the BGE up for Indirect Grilling, for a reverse sear at 250F.

Let the steak come to room temp, veg oil, S&P. Put the steak on and cooked to an internal temp of 120F. Removed and covered. Took the cooking grate out, removed the plate setter and put the grate back. Closed the lid and brought the the temp to 650F. Seared the steak for 30 seconds, rotated, another 30 seconds, flipped, another 30 seconds, rotated and cooked another 30 seconds. Removed, foiled and rested for 10 minutes.

Sliced and ready to serve!

The plate.

Dessert to follow!

Nothing very exotic in our house tonight. It was a "clean out the fridge or it turns into a science project" night tonight. We had a smorgasbord of assorted vegetables and I broiled up a kielbasa to have as our protein. Birthday cake for dessert. It's very rich and may last until my next birthday.

Gorgeous steak, Craig! medtran, I think I gained a pound just looking at that scrumptious brownie.

We cleaned out the fried fish, mac and cheese, and coleslaw. I made big salads for before hand since there wasn't all that much. Still had plenty, though, so it all worked out. Here's my "garbage" salad. Oops, forgot a bit of cheese.
