Sometimes You Just Need A Good Steak

Steak Dinner

Sometimes you just need a really good steak. We normally buy the lower grades of beef you find in the supermarket coolers. Last night, we cooked up a prime top sirloin. Prime is a higher grade of beef and it really does make a difference in the beef. Now, don’t get me wrong, we’ve enjoy a good grade A or AA steak but the Prime is better. So, a good steak dinner was in the works.

We started with preparing a Onion Bacon Baked Potato On the Barbecue from a prior post. I also sprinkled Cabela’s Open Season Whiskey Steak Seasonings on the steak and let it come to
room temperature.

When it was almost cooked, we through our prime sirloins on a medium high grill. I did She Who Must Be Obeyed’s steak to medium well. It was on the grill for about six minutes a side. I did mine to medium rare at about four minutes a side on the grill. I used my Thermapen Thermometer to get them just right! That’s 150 F internal temperature for the missus and 135 F for me.
The steaks were taken off the grill and let sit under foil for 8 minutes. Then, I slice it thin and served. The potato and a green salad prepared by She Who Must Be Obeyed was added.

I had my home made Old Fat Guy Steak Sauce on the table and it went perfectly with this. I will post the recipe in my next post.
The Verdict

The higher quality beef just melted in our mouths. Such a nice moist texture and excellent beef taste. Sigh, I wish I could afford prime beef more often.
