My Handyman, aka Grillmaster, loves to grill a steak. Did I tell you about the whole ribeye we found at a meat sale for $2.99 a pound?! We got 22 steaks out of that almost 15 pound slab of meat. That comes out to a cost of about $2.00 per steak!
Handyman does an awesome job. He usually seasons the steaks with some garlic, lemon pepper, and Season All and lets them sit while the coals are getting hot. Then depending on the thickness of the steak, he grills it about 6 minutes or so on each side. That’s all it takes.
The steak he grilled for me Monday was so much better than the one I got a Chile’s a few weeks ago. That steak nowhere resembled or tasted like a Ribeye in any way. I even mentioned it to the waiter and he talked to both managers and they all insisted it was a ribeye. It was the strangest shape and was way too dry. I ate as much as I could around the edge of it, then gave up. It will be a long time before I go to Chile’s again, even if I do love their Chili Con Queso in those little cast iron skillets.
What is your favorite beef steak? Do you prefer a ribeye or T-bone, or perhaps another cut?
