Steak @ Gregs
Yesterday we were invited over to our friend Gregs for his often bragged about steaks. His uber high top secret recipe... which from what I understand makes up the bulk of his diet... obviously means he has had a LOT of practice making these steaks. And ooooh boy did it show.
He marinated the steaks for 30 hours in his concoction, which tenderizes the meat and adds a rich strong flavor. He then cooks them over a high flame... letting the flames lick the meat... making the fat on the edges crisp up oh so yummily.
The meat just literally melted in the mouth with a burst of flavor. Crispy on the outside, soft and buttery on the inside. I wish I had leftovers. I couldnt believe I ate the whole thing. We had his steaks with a family recipe of baked (grill baked in his case) potatoes, which are covered in bacon and salt... which gives the skin a nice flavorful crisp. Bacon on the OUTSIDE of a potato! I'd never thought of that! It worked!
My contribution to the feast was some very very angry salsa made from a couple of the massive mound of habaneros a friend at work gave to me (I'll be making a post about those tomorrow).
All in all, good food, good company. Even the dog was sleepy from a full and content belly. ;-)
