    Grilling steak... the right way

    Post by shabbs on Thu May 14, 2009 11:56 am

    Well, summer season is here... and that means grilling season. Mmmmm steaks on the grill. For those that love to grill, here's a great step-by-step guide to grilling the best steaks...

    http://bbq.about.com/od/steaks/ss/aa110108a.htm

    This is the method I use and it works very well. Oiling your grill is very important - use an extra light Olive oil. I use Montreal steak spice to season my meat.

    Now, go forth and grill away and enjoy steak the way it's supposed to be. Why pay crazy money at a steak house when you can do just as good a job at home? Get a good cut from your local butcher and get the same results at home.

    Amen!

    And if you want a great steak without the fuss of bone and fat, look for sales on tenderloin roasts. Tenderloin is the stuff that Fillet Mignon's made of, and you can often find it on sale in the roast form, for as low as $22-28 /kg. Considering that it is *all meat* with no bone or fat, and then considering also that it will be the most tender steak you will ever eat, that's quite a bargain. A nice, sharp knife to cut the roast into steaks is all that is required.

    The beef tenderloin at Costco is surprisingly good. It's big but you can cut it up and freeze what you don't need right away.

    Their striploin is also very good, and a bit on the pricey side.

    They also carry Montreal Steak Spice in 50-gallon drums.

    +1 on Costco. I was there just a couple of days ago. A nice size tenderloin (good for at least 10 nice-sized steaks) is around $40-45. A fillet mignon of that size would run you a good $15-20 with a side of potato and some veggies. Here you can get it for under $5, so long as you have a nice, sharp knife.

    I got the Montreal Steak Spice from Cotsco. It's *not* that big. I use it for steak, sauteed mushrooms (with a little sour cream -- excellent as a side for your steak), and to top off a baked potato (another steak side).

    My only faux-pas is that I have a pretty bad barbecue (well, it's alittle better since swapped out the old burner) and I cook on a grill/griddle (one side for pancakes, the other for grilling) on top of the gas range. Cooking times are a bit longer because I cannot close the lid.

    Costco literally has everything now, they seem to be expanding into everything under the sun. And their products are top notch (or people wouldn't continue to buy).

    People like to buy there because they like the feeling of having access to merchandise on an exclusive basis. It's a class thing.

    Their meat is by far the best looking I've seen in any store. I long for the day when I can be enough of a big shot to actually taste this forbidden delicacy.

    It's important to keep your grill clean. Clean after and before for best results. Sometimes, I'll leave the BBQ on "high" for a while after I cook to burn off some of the "left behinds" and then I'll brush it with a wire brush to keep it nice and clean.

    I've got a natural gas BBQ hooked up to the house so I never run out of gas. No more "running out of gas" when you have a bunch of people over for a bbq.

    I am in your bbq awe, no more buying propane tanks? now that is convenience, thanks for the tip on keeping the grill clean, mine is horrible, but I want to upgrade to a stainless steel bbq, maybe this way I can convince my better half of it, by letting it get dirty that is? lol
