Tonight I gave steak a shot. This is a meal I eat very rarely, because I feel guilty spending that much money on myself, but we’ve had several “short” food weeks here recently due to all the travel, so I figured what the hell and bought two Choice NY Strip steaks at a total of 1.5lbs, plus some potatoes and green veggies.
Searing in a rocket-hot cast iron skillet with crushed garlic, thyme, rosemary, oil, and butter, basting and flipping on the regular.
The finished product with a twice-baked potato, the steak itself, some roasted asparagus (only slightly overdone), and some toasted Italian bread with Kerrygold butter.
I also made my partner a ziti bake–Ziti, shredded Italian 5-cheese blend, and some Classico 5-Cheese red sauce, plus olive oil and red wine, all mixed together, then topped with provolone and baked. She doesn’t really, you know, eat beef, so yeah >.>
No money-shot of the cut, because after the initial 6-7 minutes of cooking, my steak was much rarer than I prefer, so I cooked it again (yes, cut!). The result probably wouldn’t have been to Qt3s liking, but I enjoyed my dinner very, very much.
