    Default Steak

    We had steak last night. Choice, boneless strip steaks we bought at
    Sam's (old meat). 4 steaks in a package, $6.39 per pound, 3.5 pounds total.

    Heated the gas grill (gasp!) to 600 degrees, cooked mine 3 minutes on
    the first side and 2 minutes on the second. Came out rare to
    medium/rare... just the way I like it. Cooked the boss's steak to
    medium well... just the way she likes it. Both steaks were very tender
    and delicious. Seems like Sam's is the only place we can get good meat
    like this any more.

    Sides were cucumber salad, corn on the cob and steamed broccoli. Early
    yesterday, Becca made a peach and plum cobbler and we had that for
    dessert... delicious!

    Sounds great, George.
    My favorite steak meal is steak - medium rare and side of shoestring french
    fries and a pile of sweet white corn. B&B is necessary too.

    Oh...and I forgot. Once the steak is cooked, remove from pan and deglaze
    with a bit of water, the add in some sliced white mushrooms and sliced
    onions. Put the mushrooms and onions on the steak and pour a little of the
    liquid over steak, french fries, and the corn. YUM!

    Sounds good, George! Did you grill the corn on the cob, too? Roasted
    corn on the cob is wonderful stuff Soak the corn in water for a few
    hours. Peel back the husks, brush the corn with a little oil or butter.
    I was told to make a "whisk" of a bundle of herbs for brushing the
    corn with butter. (You may also tuck some fresh herbs in there. Basil,
    marjoram, thyme.) Pull the husks up and roast it on the grill. The
    husks will blacken but the corn will roast nicely. Turn every 10
    minutes or so. This is another "Fair Food" moment but unlike corn dogs
    something I've done at home

    I discovered grilled corn more than a decade ago and rarely cook it any
    other way. I live in the country and can pick up freshly picked corn so
    I can usually skip the soaking step. I have a love hate relationship
    with the people who peel back husks to check the kernels inside because
    it spoils them for grilling. I can usually tell by feeling the tips of
    the cobs through the husk to make sure there is some undeveloped kernels
    there, so I can be sure it is not too yellow and over ripened. I prefer
    it on the pale side. To their credit, their having had time to pick
    through so many cobs tells me that it has been there for a while.

    Butter is out for me. I hate margarine, though Becel is almost
    acceptable. I usually end up having it with a little freshly ground pepper.

    Sam's Club is Walmart. I buy the same USDA Choice beef at the local
    Super Walmarts:

    Possibly, but it is cheaper at Sam's. The same strip steaks at Walmart
    are usually $8.99 a pound vs the $6.39 we paid. There are usually 4
    steaks to a package... we cook two and freeze the others for later use.

    There's no possibly, Sam's IS Walmart. And prices for most products
    vary by store, and at different times, especially for perishables...
    says so right at the web site. I shop both Sam's and Walmart, the
    meat is the same and varies by pennies up or down depending when I
    shop. The people who complain about Walmart obviously don't shop
    Super Walmarts... and regardless there are very noticeable differences
    by neighborhood, the stores in lower level socio-economic hoods are
    lower quality, that's true for all retailers. The only steaks I find
    cheaper at Sam's are those packaged in bulk, Super Walmart doesn't
    sell 12-packs, the price differences I've seen is nowhere close to
    what you claim... you'll have to show me.

    George Leppla,

    Flank steak, salt and fresh cracked pepper on both sides.

    BBQ-grilled. Served with a mountain of caramelized onions.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    And hi Becca [Waving!]

    Best,

    We have 3 grocery stores here. You go to one for spectacular meat, you
    go to the second one for produce (never ever buy their meat lol) and you
    go to SuperWalmart for frozen and packaged goods. For bakery I have to
    drive to the next town to the SuperTarget. I am tired of wasting so much
    time buying groceries!

    I've heard of going to Super Target for diapers and paper products (I
    buy their resealable bags), but this is a first for bakery items.

    Unfortunately, corn isn't something I can eat. But I have never peeled
    back the husks just to check the kernels!

    So skip the butter and brush on a little olive oil instead. It works
    just as well. I miss grilled corn. I miss corn chowder. I miss corn!

    The other day I came across another method. Boiling with husks on. Says it
    preserves fresh taste ?

    Never bought strip steak, except the whole t bone. Prefer ribeye or
    porterhouse.

    Try this: Mix some mayo with some chipotle and lime juice and at the
    roasting stage, slather corn with the mayo mix and let it char. Sprinkle
    with cotija or other slightly tart crumble cheese.

    It would be a waste of good Scotch to put a twist in it. That would rank
    up there with mixing a premium liquor with Coke or ginger ale. If it is
    a cheaper Scotch, a twist is nice.

    J&B is a cheaper scotch. What's a waste is Johnny Walker Black on the

    I don't think so. It would depend on how much ice you use. I have made
    the mistake of ordering drinks on the rocks in bars and I get a glass
    full of ice with a little shot of liquor. When I have Scotch at home I
    usually have one cube, maybe two if they are small.

    Lou Grant had it right when he told Mary Richards how to drink Scotch.
    You get a nice glass and put a little ice in it, pour some good Scotch
    into it and swirl it around and take a sip. Swirl and sip a few times
    until it is just right and then knock it back.
