  • The Secret to Cooking the Perfect Steak

    02/12/2016 11:43:05 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 193 replies
    Drop it like it's hot. That's the secret of cooking a perfectly juicy steak, says Dante Liporaco, owner of Tarquino in Buenos Aires - one of Latin America's top restaurants. He recommends a nice thick cut, warmed to room temperature, then slapped on a sizzling hot pan. It's then seasoned with chimichurri - the Argentinian sauce made with parsley, garlic, oregano, oil and vinegar - and kosher salt. Off the heat, it rests for three or four minutes to allow its juices to settle. Que aproveche!

    I have always been a rib-eye fan. That was my favorite cut of steak.But a few weeks ago, I came across a "chuck-eye" steak at Walmart. It looked like a ribeye at half the cost...so I grabbed it.When I did an interweb search, I found many who bragged about its flavor and low cost.I grill another one tonight.Beautiful steak. $5 total cost.This cut is called the poor man's ribeye. But it is just as good at half the price.Just thought my fellow Freepers might want to know.

    The Streak is over. After winning an NCAA-record 62 consecutive games, the University of Minnesota women's hockey team fell 3-2 to North Dakota on Sunday in front of 2,435 at Ridder Arena. The last previous loss for the top-ranked Gophers (13-1-0, 11-1-0 Western Collegiate Hockey Association) also came at the hands of North Dakota. That 2-1 overtime defeat on Feb. 17, 2012, came in the opening game of the final regular-season series that year.

Biden is scheduled to headline a fundraiser in Iowa Sunday for Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin, an annual steak picnic for the senator who is popular with anti-war Democrats. Even if Biden sidesteps talk of Syria, the issue will be as much a part of the backdrop as the bales of hay and smoke from the grilling steaks, and in a...

    MABANK — For the first time in four years, a gourmet extravagance — authentic Japanese Kobe beef — is allowed back into the United States. The question is whether anyone will care. An American Kobe-style brand has taken its place on restaurant menus. Wagyu cattle began arriving in the United States in the 1990s, often flown over from Japan. They are fattened longer than the average American breed; they live about eight to 14 months longer than U.S. beef cattle. U.S. ranchers often crossbreed them with Angus cattle. The glossy black cows on Meliton Rincon's ranch in Athens are not...

The first bite, in all probability, was juicy and tender. Not bad. A brief hit of beefiness, enough to spur you on to bite No. 2. But by bite No. 4, there was a problem: grease. The tongue gets entirely coated in it. It is at this point that many hands reach for that terrible abomination called steak sauce. It's acidic and zingy and cuts through...

    Prime beef is the highest-quality, tenderest, most richly marbled meat from a small percentage of cattle. Ultimately, about 2 percent of American beef makes the cut and is stamped USDA Prime. Most prime meat goes to high-end restaurants. Only a few retail sources, mostly in major cities - Philadelphia included - and online/mail-order sources sell prime beef to the public. Many butchers will custom-order it. Prime beef and branded products of near-prime quality are available at Wegmans and Whole Foods markets. Branded beef is typically at the high end of its designated grade level. Unless labeled prime, that's Choice or,...
