    Yesterday DH was at a civil-war re-enactment so it was just me and DGD for supper. We had mac-n- cheese with hamburger and onions in it. DH had the last of the chili-colorado when he got home. Tonight we will have either bbq'ed keilbasa or steak-don't know what with it yet.

    Backyard Buddies - Finally got rub recipe from my friend. This recipe is from a top catering chef in the San Francisco Bay area. My friend is as big a foodie as myself. He is into the WHOLE gourmet food scene in San Francisco, so if he says this is good then it is. I'm going to make this tonight and try the slow cook process.


    Equal Parts:
    Kosher Salt
    Fennel Seeds - crushed

    1/2 Part:

    Gently massage the rub onto the meat, let it stand for 30 minutes. Pre-heat grill to high. Braise steaks on the grill, 2 minutes each side. Set the steaks aside for 20 minutes.

    Pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees - cook steaks for 1 hour and 40 minutes. If you are in a hurry, 320 degrees and cook steaks for 20 minutes.

    Do not cut or serve for at least 10 minutes.

    P.S. It may sound strange to cook so long in oven, but when you think how restaurants and caterers cook it makes perfect sense; to sear the meat and then slow cook so they can plate a lot meals at once and everything is hot and perfect.

    I'll let you know how they come out. [​IMG]

    Thank you Dragonfly Ranch! I can't wait to try it!

    That is a different way to do the steaks! I do a killer steak on the grill, which is why everyone assigns me to be in charge of them, but I look forward to trying it a different way. This system would be great for those days when you have an errand to run for a bit before dinner or if you simply want to enjoy the appetizers with your guests!

    Did you try it tonight??

    Quote:This is awesome. The steaks were so moist and perfectly cooked. I highly recommend and doubt that I will ever cook a steak the old way. Agree with Backyard Buddies would be a great way to enjoys guests and have perfect steak to boot.

    I should have mentioned in previous post. I went a little heavy on the rub - but still really good. I would apply a nice thin even coat next time, so more of the meat flavor comes foward.

    This sounds like a GOOD METHOD to "adapt" to my "smoker"!!!

    (although I'll likely change the "rub" a little bit to include garlic and hot pepper...)

    I could "sear the steak" on the HOT grill..then set aside.

    get my WET Apple-Wood smoking good, then add my steaks in an aluminum-foil wrap that I have "perforated" and smoke the steaks a little while (not as long as in the oven).

    I will probably try this in about a week.[​IMG]

    We smoked enough meat Sunday to last all week.LOL Our first brisket turned out well. Dh sliced it and we had sandwiches. The ham is delicious, too.

    Tonight, we are having Salisbury Steak, gravy, mashed potatoes and peas. Peach cobbler for dessert. Our oldest DD is working so I'll make extra for her to take home when she picks up the little one.

    I hope to try the steak recipe shared. Sounds good - thanks.
