Cheaper than ground beef....

I hate to freeze it, but I'm almost getting tired of steak for dinner every night.:eek::D

For a slight change of pace we'll be having beef stroganoff tonight. Life sucks eh?

Paul.......take out a couple of steaks for your meal about an hour and a half before you want to cook them. mix up 4 T. garlic powder and 4 T. basil and 4 T. Rosemary together.....get a cup of kosher salt....
1 hour before cooking, rub both sides of the steak with at least 1 T. of the spice blend...both sides, both steaks. Then pack salt onto both sides...don't sprinkle it, pack it on......let sit....45 minutes to 1 hour.....

While that is happening, crush 2 cloves of garlic, add 1 tsp rosemary, and mix it into the softened butter. Spoon the butter onto some plastic wrap and roll it up about 3/8ths inch in diameter and place it in fridge.....

Wash off the steak, really good, pat dry....dry...dry....really dry.......now cook it the way you like, when you remove it from the heat, drop on a pat or so of the seasoned butter on the hot steak.....

Report back...how bad was it?

Is it Australian? Australian beef is sold a lot around here, at prices like that. Its gamy, and no fat in it, even a tenderloin is no bargain. I would rather search out a US, Choice grade chuck filet, than eat the australian filet.

Filet mignon, tenderloin, to me is not a great cut of meat, if its not the highest quality, it does not have enough fat, its so tender its downright mushy, and as I say, there is a lot of foreign beef now being sold in the US thats a completely different animal from US grain-fattened beef, its grass-fed, and thats fine, as long as you know you are getting something that will taste more like game than american beef, it has that slightly sour, gamy taste, and no fat. I'd rather stew some good US American chuck, with that great rich beefy flavor, than grill an australian tenderloin.

Chuck is the best steak..... Ya just gotta know how to cook it, and cut it. Tenderloin/fillet is like a tutu on a poodle.

1 pound = 454 grams
2.2 pounds = 1 kilo

Paul's $2/lb. = $4.40 (USD)/kilo

My personal favorite cuts are Flat Iron, NY Strip or Porterhouse. Sometimes flank steak. More flavor. I'll eat a filet, but usually find it needs some more flavor and the texture just isn't there....

Because we tend to like to eat on a budget, London Broil finds its way in there, too. :o

We're going to have beef Wellington for Christmas - local butcher reckons a whole filet of Scottish Aberdeen Angus will cost about 75.

:::Doing quick math:::

$122!!! :eek::eek::eek:
