Steak Out


A very long day. There are no words in me tonight. But there is room for grilled steak. :-)

No marinade, no special handling. Just the best quality locally grown range beef, grilled outside on a small, old-fashioned grill, with just a bit of salt.

Sometimes you don't want a meal that needs special handling, side dishes or a teleprompter, you just want honest substance.

Wow, that looks good.

wv:rednes - just a touch of that in the center of the meat.

Sometimes the best singing performance is when the singer gets himself out of the way and does the song simply, and straight.

Compare Beyonce with Allison Krause.

Local beef, hot fire, salt & pepper... reckon I just ran out of leftovers. ;)

Hello Lass,

The steak looks like it is cooked the way I like it. Wish I was there. Take a load off, and have a sip of good Scotch.

A pat, and some scraps for Barkley, please. That steak looks big enough to share with him.

Just as a thought miss - have you tried brining your steaks ever? Makes a nice bit of difference!

Glad you're able to be home and relax some.

Okay. Now ya gone and done it. I'm gonna have to stop at the store on the way home in a couple of hours and buy a steak. That just looks way too good. Beats the heck out of the crackers and cheese snack I just had.

Mind you, I'm not complaining. Really.

Thanks Brigid.

This made me smile - both the text and the meal :)

Having been raised on the local beef from a neighbor's farm (we'd trade a whole hog for a side) I've never had a restaraunt steak that compared except for The Beef House in Covington, IN.

Yours looks good but still a little too rare for me. I like mine very well done.

Damn, those look good. I'll have to do that on my next day off

Mmmmm...that looks amazing. Simple meals are sometimes the best.

Mmmm - meat. Its whats for dinner.

Doc sez too much is bad for you, but sometimes, you just have to block out the advice (and the arteries,lol) and chow down. I guess I am and always will have carniverous tendencies. I prefer my beef cooked rare - just knock off the horns, run it by the stove and serve it up! Sear both surfaces so they seal up, and keep those juices inside. Serve with a simple salad, some saltines and your favorite drink (for me, chilled water with a bit of lemon) and I'm a happy camper.

Hope you get your batteries recharged soon.

Cut off his horns, wipe his butt, and run him across the coals. Serve with a glass of Jack on the rocks.Fine dining.

Don't forget a few bites for bow wow

Hey, that's what we had for dinner last night too! Grilled over black locust and cherry wood coals, with cold beets and frozen peas on the side. The wife said it was too hot for hot sides and the kids love frozen peas.

Bruce B. I've been hearing about the Beef House for years and I've never had a chance to go. They're said to have fantastic rolls too. One day I'll get there.

Honest Substance... always a good thing.

I have two 2lb lean buffalo steaks in the freezer from a local supplier queued up for the 4th. The supplier has a 500 head herd that he uses to supply customers all across the US. He does his own killing and butchering and you can buy from him directly. Just a bit higher than supermarket beef but worth it. Marbled just right.

I have his website URL somewhere and I'll post it if I can find it.

Much love, B. Hang in there.

That hunk of meat put me in a mood to BBQ this weekend. Gives me an excuse to load up the beer fridge after work. I appreciate it.

Hobie said...

That there is some good groceries, yessiree!

BTW, the new banner image at the top is pretty nice...

It never ceases to amaze me how many people ruin a perfectly good steak by "seasoning it" A steak is best grilled by itself with a nice cool ale on the side.

Somerled said...

I'm happy to see that steak still has color to it.
