Today, my family is out of town. So I said to my self, why should I suffer? I was going to treat my self to a manly steak (no offence to women). Of course, I’ve been planning this for a while. I went to Costco last weekend and picked myself up a 21/2 pound Strip steak (beef top loin). I let it age in my refrigerator for the last 7 days (noticed the marvelous fat marble lines on this steak). The steak weighed at 43oz when I picked it up, now it weighs about 36oz after aging.

Aahhhh…perfect!

The steak was crusted with the following ingredients: Kosher salt, black pepper, cumin, Aleppo chili pepper, granulated onion powder, white peeper, paprika, and coriander.

Tomorrow, my family will be back, and we’ll have the big Memorial Day BBQ.
P.S. I’ll tell them that I had a T.V. dinner while they were gone (may be they’ll feel sorry for me).

Sure,
Here is a link to the steps you need to age a steak :

Note: this was not considered an individual steak (due to its thickness and weight), you cannot use these steps to age thin individual steaks.

Z,

You might be able to get your family feeling sorry for you with that T.V. dinner story, but you certainly won't get anyone who's seen those pic's feeling sorry for you!

That whole meal look's absolutely delicious!!! Hat's off to you! Sure you don't want to relocate to Va. instead of Ca. :wink: YB2
I'll eat anything that won't eat me first !!!

Don Marco,
I always have to log on twice before it registers me. Is that the same problem you have logging on? Does anyone else have that problem?

bbcue-z,
That steak looks great and the whole meal presentation looks very professional. Although all that matters is that the steak tasted good as I am sure it did.

Z, I'd start braggin' on how good that looks, but I've come to expect no less from you. :wink: You always impress me. BTW, I did a chuck roast with the chili sauce today as you recommended. We'll be having it later on in the week.

smokyblues I also have to logon twice from home. Never have to at work though. I still haven't figured it out. Tried messing with the securety setting and the cookie settings but nothing has helped so far. I up-channelled the question so we'll see if they can firgure it out.
