what’s your beef?
People’s eyes usually glaze over at the mention of filet mignon, that small end of the tenderloin. It is by far the most tender cut for dry heat cooking. It is lean and has a satisfying flavor. Chateaubriand comes from the larger portion of the tenderloin and is a popular and romantic dish for two complimented by a good bernaise sauce. Rib eye (Delmonico) is another desirable cut as the meat is marbled with fat to give fabulous flavor right off the grill. My personal favorite, is the flank steak. Not as tender as filet and lacking the melt-in-your-mouth of rib eye, flank steak offers the most flavor bang for your leaness buck. Tonight Jeremy grilled a marinated flank steak for dinner.
and then we paired it with those roasted vegetables…
Ever have one of those days when you remember what you are having for dinner that night and that is all you can think about for the next 4 hours? That’s what happened to me today. Ever reach the point where there are so many things going on in your life and in others’ lives that it becomes overwhelming and you suddenly stop giving a shit? That’s what happened to me today too. Ever feel like you are ready to walk away and flip everyone the bird? Me too. woot!
