Sear and blast is foolproof and makes for VERY good steak

I am not much of a "beefeater", but IF I was going to eat a steak it must be a tender cut WITHOUT any chunk of fat, gristle or bones (like tenderloin), and must be cooked thoroughly, no pink part remaining in the middle. I know it is a horror for real beef fans, but if you are not, it goes the other way around!!

When it comes to cooking up a slab of dead cow ... on the grill over a bed of hardwood charcoal, or actual hardwood, is my favorite - although marinated in peach brandy and cooked over red cedar was an interesting experience.

Next to the grill comes - in the oven under the broiler.

After that - a good sear on each side in a cast iron skillet and finished in the oven.

A lot really depends on my mood, the weather, the cut of meat, and my menu.

Here is the true test of this statement:

Mike, what do you do to a Texan who loads their chili up with beans?

To me the question becomes; what do you like to serve with the steak. I like the chop-house traditions of creamed spinach, potatoes, mushrooms etc Since Im usually grilling steaks (or barbequing dont want to get mixed up in that debate) I like to do the sides on the grill as well. My family demands grilled garlic bread every time were doing steaks. Im sure someone out there can be more creative than that though so what goes with steak?

LOL - Licia - the Greeks, Romans, Celts, Scots, Picts, some Gremanic savages, and the other mess mixed up in my ancestral pool were all cooking meat over an open fire long before they got to Texas. But, yeah - I do like a good old fashioned Texas BBQ, too. As Rainee pointed out - "grilling" a steak and a "BBQ" are different critters.

Simple SilvrBck - we call 'em heretics, infadels, Yankees, or Californians!

Yeah mish ... we're just moo-ving along.

Hey, hey hey you. Who's an infidel!

The first crime this Yankee witnessed in California, was putting mayo on a hamburger. EWWWW!

It's a fine line, Mish ...

It's ok to put chili over yor beans ... but never to cook your chili with beans in it.

Mayo on a burger? Only in California ...
