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. ;-)

I'm glad ya’ll enjoyed it, although I do have some bad news... I finished off the rest of the salsa...

Lea forgot to mention, the salsa was so incredibly hot, it made my nose bleed!!!! Very good stuff!! I WANT MORE!!!!!

And thanks for the kind review. Coming from someone who is obviously more food savvy, it means a lot!

hahaha true story about that nosebleed! I'll have to make a bunch of it and create a label and call it "Angry Nosebleed Salsa"

who says I'm more food savvy? I'm just a food nerd. =P

Did he share his marinade recipe with you? And bacon on the outside of the potato? Truly the work of an evil genius...

Habaneros make everything better!

And what's better than a nice steak? Except maybe for a nice steak accompanied with a bacon wrappy potato, yum.
