Boys Night Out: Cowboy Steaks!





I love cooking. Yesterday i made steaks for my two buddies. 3.25lbs of aged rib eye and new york sirloin steak. 2 inches thick steaks, cowboy style! Always, medium rare!! With a nice glass of some Oregon and California merlot and Syrah. Vodka Red Bull for dessert! Wish you were there.

hey stewie,
I really like your blog charts--
zee
I had IWM puts yesterday, going into today---I did ok--
changed to IWM calls intraday--
hero or zero--I'll see on Monday

I think I better raise my target price on GDX--
0.75% rate cut might propel GDX higher than $57

Damn that looks good!! Did you grill those bad boys? I like the parsley garnish, candlelight and wine. Where were the women?!!! You had a babetrap set up and you didn't even know it! ;)

BD. No girls that night. It was boys night. Girls will get their turn this weekend. hahahaha!
For those steaks:
I started off by letting those bad boys come to room temperature by letting them sit on the counter for about an hour. Then I used lots of sea salt and ground pepper and pressed it into the meats using my palm. Then i cranked the oven to 500 degrees and let it create a furnace like heat. Meanwhile i got out the grill pan and cranked it to high heat on the stove top. I used a touch canola oil and once the canola starts to smoke a bit, then i seered the steaks for 5 minutes on each side, DO NOT TOUCH THEM, let them seer and let that salt turn into a crunchy crust on the steak. Then you throw those bad boys in the 500 Degree oven and let them roast baby! depending on the thickness, I threw those 2 inch steaks in the hot oven for about 8-10 minutes. comes out medium rare and let those steaks rest once of the oven for about 5-10 minutes. let the juicy relax and redistribute. Then carve and enjoy with a good merlot.
I wish you were there.

Holy crap, Stewie, those look GOOD! Love the west coast wines, I'm right by Napa but am on a Syrah kick right now. You have lots of good stuff up there too! I'm looking you up on my next trip to Portland! --DougSF

I'll have to try that. I usually grill my steaks. I do the same salt and pepper combo, sometimes basting with beer. I'll turn the grill to 400 or so, throw the steaks on, and time it for 2 min. At that mark, I move the steaks 45-90 degrees to get that nice diamond grill mark. After another 2 min., I'll flip it over and repeat. It takes 8 min. total and comes out perfect (med. rare).

Cheers,
BD
