What did you have for dinner


#102

Looks great bud, I pan seal on friggen high heat, leave to rest and then cook it to doneness in a cooler pan with butter and herbs.

Or I go other way round. number 4 of 6 on our stove, melted butter and herbs then pop it as close to the griller in the oven as possible.

We just got a gas stove so I am not fully used to the way that shit works yet. But yeah normally, hot pan, fat side for 3-4 minutes to render that out. then 3 minutes each side and then i will baste with butter and thyme for a minute on each side. then rest for 5.

The problem is me and the wife likes our steak very different. she likes it in the medium range and i want mine to still be trying to jump off the plate when i want to cut it. But now i obviously just cook it the way she likes it. But i think last nights came out good.

Thank goodness it was in a bowl, and not layered like a trifle in a mason jar! You never go full hipster!

Yep - I don’t know how I’d eat a salad in a jar though… I don’t like eating the food in layers. I mix it all up to get a consistent mix of textures and tastes with every bite. Just now you’re not enjoying a specific layer and you’re forced to shovel it down your throat just to get the the next, hopefully better tasting, layer.
