Steak, New Potatoes, Corn on the Cob & Long Stem Broccoli.

Friday 26th August 2011

I’m not sure if I like steak anymore. I’ve gone off it. In fact, I can’t remember the last good bit of steak I had.

I like my steak with a bit of fat on it so I tend to go for an entrecôte. Over the last few years, I’ve realised this doesn’t always turn out to be as good as I expect. When eating out, even in a good restaurant, you never know if you are going to get good quality meat. I’ve eaten over-cooked, over-priced shoe leather in high end establishments. As a result, I never order steak when I eat out anymore.

When eating at home, I still don’t seem to get the results I’m looking for. I go to a good butcher where she assures me that the meat is from a local farm & I pay good money for what I believe to be high quality meat. (Anywhere between 6/7€ for a 300g entrecôte.) I cook it for 2 minutes either side & then leave it for further few minutes to stand before eating. But still, it’s just ok.

What I’m looking for is a rare piece of meat than cuts like butter & melts in the mouth. It does exist, I’ve had it before.

My wife favours the filet & she has urged me to switch allegiance, which I have on many an occasion but alas the results were equally mediocre.

I may have to cut my looses & move on.

Tofu steaks here I come. 😉

Zephy, on the other hand, rather enjoyed this piece of steak & ended up eating a good three-quarters of it.

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.
