Favorite meal

Just food talk, like the forum says.
This has to be one of my favorite meals; Steak, grilled potatoes, something green and some garlic bread.

Today I picked up a couple fresh ribeyes at the place I bought a front quarter from last fall. Also some broccoli. Here's one of the ribeyes resting with some salt, pepper and very little montreal steak seasoning (one side only).


I fixed some potatoes for the grill. Cut in half, scored, nuked for a couple minutes, then seasoned with some salt, pepper, garlic powder and chile powder. EVOO in the foil pan and butter on top.


The potatoes coming along


Time for the steak, too. I got that first flip in and it's ready to strain the broccoli and add some EVOO and slivered almonds. The potatoes were on cruise control by this time.




Dinner is plated. Along with some bread I spread EVOO on, grilled while the steak was resting, then rubbed with a fresh clove of garlic.


It wouldn't be right not to show a cut piece. Pink, just like I like it.
(sans flash)



Keepin' it simple

Picanis,
I need to thank you for making my favorite meal just the way I like it. However, I do feel the need to complain about the service as it still has not arrived!


This WILL be effecting your tip if it does not arrive soon, with a good stout red ale to go along with it!

Ain't that the truth, but this one is my standby meal, so it gets made the most, though not usually with a steak that thick
It wins by sheer repetition.

You'll love the potatoes this way, sattie. You can season them so many ways using anything you would put on your steak, grate cheese on them, with or without sour cream.... they are like thick potato skins and I always make extra to nuke the next day.
