How were you planning on cooking the steak if not on the barbecue? It's surprisingly easy to do it on the barbecue, about 4ish minutes on either side for a medium rare, depending how thick. I cut mine about 2 inches thick and it's more like 5 minutes on each side, or thereabouts...

(Given circumstances I appreciate you may not want to barbecue it!)
Unless you're desperate for that burnt charcoal favour, I find cooking steaks on a bqq dries them out, especially a gas one. You want to pan sear one side in some oil/butter then flip it over, place a knob of herb better on top and pop it in 360F oven for ten or so minutes. When you take it out, rest it on some chop sticks or kebab skewers to rest to minimize surface contact so the juices are resorbed back into the meat. And apart from tenderloin, you always want to give it a bash to tenderize it.

They can go dry on the BBQ if they are cut too thin, I've never had the issue though. But I do like the idea of resting them on chopsticks, I will try that next time! Thanks for the tip!

Oh yes, I use that too...just not with the mustard rub.

Roasted.

Montreal steak spice works very well with cheap pork sirloin which is otherwise pretty tasteless.

And I sprinkled some on a flattened chicken just a couple of days ago.

Chicken is the only thing I'm not nuts about Montreal steak spice on, but it's great on everything else including vegetables!

If we're having chicken with all the veg and gravy, then I don't.

But I occasionally like chicken with a baked spud and something like asparagus or snow peas and no gravy, so the MSS may come out then.

One of my sisters makes her own and it's at least as good or better than the brand-name at a fraction of the cost. I can't be bothered but they bbq a lot (snowbirds).

There's a Montreal Chicken spice too

Both of them keep me awake for hours, so I have to use them sparingly.

What are they doing, bickering? A bilingualism dispute?

Went to Superstore yesterday to get some $10.99 a lb Beef Tenderloin. They didn't have any left.

Stepdaughter called in today (she works 50 yards away) and bought one.

One of the "small" ones at $75. I thought split it in two and then thought, no, three. Keep forgetting we're now 4 and not 5.

Once I'd cut it I realised I could probably have done three and a bit left over as part of something else.

It's not on the menu yet. Lamb tomorrow.

One of the stores has some sort of pork tender loin for 3.98/lb, may check it out after work, its frozen though, so not really very feasible I'd assume, always been told not to defrost and then re-freeze meat.

Not much on sale this week meat wise, ground beef 3.98 pound for the family pack size (too big for 2 people without enough freezer space) and some sort of steak for either 6.98 or 7.98 per pound.


I've noticed less and less meat going on sale in advance, but a lot more clearance meat $2 off 1-2 days before their best buy date. Seems prices are keeping people away from meat around here.



California corn on the cob 66/ear but you have to buy a 6 pack of ears for that price, just nice to see corn already out, several summer fruits are out early this year, warm winter and spring brought early season for California farmers.


Wife is on weight watchers, and oddly I have been eating not much these days, so we have been saving some money by reduction....lol

After not seeing any good sales on cheese for a long time I spotted some reduced goodies in Wholesale Club and took the plunge. Picnic at Caretaker's place this afternoon.
Suggestions on pairing? I have Rose', Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and some portish Emu 999. I'm not popping the good stuff until someone dies, is born or gets married. I'll have 2 or 3 Ouzos or whiskeys an hour or so before for the appetite.
edit: gotta make a run to the LB before I start any trouble, that few inches of reddo isn't going to get me far and I think I need Screech too.
edit: Yikes, $78.23 later I'm all stocked up. Took a chance on Mission Ridge Cask Select plonk at $14 something/1.5L. I forgot I had the Delectables app on my phone to check reviews but turns out it's so new it isn't on there yet. Oh, I hope I don't insult my delicate palate!
edit: Und prepare zum nice vurst to go mit dat too, no half measures!
