Barbie all set up

Recommended Posts

Sorry, but I had to go with a real barbie that cooks with charcoal. Gas or electric won't cut it for a country boy from Texas. The good smell coming from Frenchs Forest will be from my backyard. Come on over but bring some beer!

Sounds good! Did you decide where to go for tomorrow? Hope you have a good weekend! Myself and the OH are about to treat ourselves to a Teppanyaki dinner....


And the end of all our exploring will be to arrive at where we started, and know the place for the first time.

About to cook some New York Strip steaks myself.

 

Not sure on tomorrow yet with the chance of rain. Might just stroll the nature reserve by our house if it looks nasty. Don't mind getting wet but would rather not burn the diesel to do it.

Well, I don't know about American recipes, but I certainly know Texan recipes. :-)

 

My steak tonight was perfect. New York Strip is a particular cut. Got them at Costco today. Pulled them from the fridge and seasoned with course salt, fresh ground pepper and dried garlic. Then I started the heat beads (we call them charcoal brickettes in Texas...but I'm not in Texas any longer). Takes about 20 minutes for them to be ready to cook with....so the steaks are out at room temp during that time. For me that is a very important part, the steaks need to be at room temp when they go on the grill (barbie). For steaks that are 4cm thick (about what I look for) you go 5 to 6 minutes a side to be cooked medium. They have to be at room temp for this timing. Let them sit for about 5 minutes after you pull them from the grill. No steak sauce needed for these...they are that good! Sounds simple, and it is, but if you follow the method you'll have a better steak than you can buy at any restaurant.

 

If anyone is interested in genuine Tex-Mex fajitas I can lay out a full dinner recipe for that....but you have to be able to smoke the meat. So good you'll want to slap your mama!

Aaron, I've been pondering what kind on bbq to buy and I think you've convinced me to go charcoal. I was leaning that way anyway but my mouth is now watering at the thought of charcoal cooked steak. It's early morning but I could eat steak for brekkie right now! Amazing.

 

Can't wait to get a bbq going when we move into a big house next weekend, I'm sick to death with pushing snags and burgers around a frying pan!


She'll be right!
