The most wretched steak I have ever eaten.
As the temperature has been above 90 for the last 5 days, I decided not to cook yesterday evening and went in search of food at a local establishment. My usual being co-opted for a graduation party, I went afar and to a place I have seen but not tried. I will not mention the name as I am sure they must do something right to remain in business, but I will not eat there again.
On entry the smell was quite enticing, and soon had me in a seat awaiting my New York Strip steak, medium rare.
What I was delivered was more like shoe sole. While the center was a nice warm pink, the overall mouth feel of the meat was like chewing a Gucci loafer, and I am sure the loafer would have had more taste. Absolutely, 100% undesirable.
It is quite simple to produce a tasty steak, and quite simple to produce shoe sole.
Now steaks are the most popular cut of meat to throw on a grill. They are flavorful, tender, and expensive, so you want to get the most out of your steak. Most folks are confused by all the different steaks there are , the best way to grill a steak and exactly how do you know when it is medium rare. (BTW well done is NOT cooked, it is CHARCOAL..)
