Picked up a tray of rib eyes @ Costco this afternoon. So dinner was two of those rib eyes grilled along with roasted red potatoes and steamed broccoli. Mr. Samuel Adams provided the beverage.

That sounds really nice Jab, it will be so nice and tender after soaking in milk

I have some beef tenderloin that has been in the freezer for a long time so I decided to make steak au poivre (Steak au Poivre Recipe). I was shocked to find that I didn't have any shallots, so I substituted red onion and garlic. I decided to use red wine instead of cognac, because we have found the cognac to be a bit much. I didn't crush the pepper, I used the Magic Bullet.

It was wonderful. Even though I could see pink bits on the thicker end of Stirling's steak, he found it cooked enough (he prefers well done. ). This is very encouraging. I like my steaks anywhere from blue to medium rare, so it's a real nuisance to cook his steak 2-3 times as long as mine.

We had boiled potatoes with butter and a salad. I added freshly grated pecorino Romano to the salad dressing. That was tasty, but this steak and sauce has so much flavour, that next time I hope to remember to make a blue cheese dressing. It isn't likely to wimp out by comparison to the steak and sauce.

That all sounds lovely Taxy

We like our steaks medium rare too

I used to like well done, but over the past few years Steve has cooked them medium rare and it is surprising how much nicer they taste, the flavour and the texture, so juicy too
