Steaky goodness


I just had the third best steak I've ever had - and it wasn't even well done!

Shocking for me, I know.

LYC went to The Boathouse Restaurant for their $11.95 prime rib special night, and the waiter said the chef would refuse to cook it well done, so I said to get it to me as well as the chef would let me. It came just brown all the way through, but it was oh so tender - melted in my mouth I tells ya! Dipped in the au jus it was like buttah! Yum. Must go back.

For the record, the #1 best steak I ever had cost me $175, and was worth every penny.

Prime Rib IS like buttah. Melt-in-your-mouth goodness. It's usually the cut of beef that I get at steak houses.

I prefer to dip mine in horseradish, though. Yum.

I've heard of chefs refusing to serve meat rare but never well done. That's really odd.

And $175 for a steak? That's what... $1000 Canadian? :P (Actually, it's about $220.) I wouldn't pay that for a dinosaur steak, much less a slab of beef. Was it encrusted with precious gems, or something?

Prime rib is slow cooked for hours, and is rarely (pardon the pun) cooked any more done than medium. To cook it any more would be sacrilege and an insult to the prime rib.

And yet, I've gotten it well done in other places no problem. I like it so thoroughly cooked (all steak, any cut, that is) that I often ask them to butterfly it to make sure it's the way I like it. Shoe leather - yum! :D

Amen to that
That thing better have been served on an incredibly beautiful young man with parsley dipped in 24carat gold as a accent. Or have been carved from a Bull named Sven who was raised on sake and the best foods that slave labor can provide, Nightly massaged in barley beer and given as many lovers as he could safely handle before the farmer got him drunken on golden mead and slit his sleeping throat with a gold scythe while virile young men danced round him drinking his lifes blood from a gem encrusted platinum goblet. Then served on one of those young deciples of Priapus like above. Then you get the disciple for dessert!

It was actually a new year's even seven course prix fixe dinner of which I liked 2 courses, one of which being the beef that was, without a doubt, the finest piece of steak I've ever had. Delicious.

Oh and I think he wouldn't serve it well done because it was the special and they were cranking them out - it gets very busy on their prime rib and their Maine lobster nights.

FYI, the longer a piece of meat is cooked, the tougher it gets. If you like your beef tender, you may have to learn to eat it less well done. I did, and I'll never go back.

JOhn.

Not true.

How long or how well a piece of meat is cooked are only two variables among many when trying to produce a tender, juicy piece of meat.

I worked in meat for a few years.

Now I know why you said it's the third best steak...

If you had said it was the third best piece of meat innumerable ex-es would have been offended...

Sadly dear nazcr is being forced to be a vegetarian by virtue of living with her parents, specifically her mother, who is a vegenazi. She sneaks out with her dad to have a burger now and then, and she used to come over our house for Thanksgiving to have real turkey rather than the tofu her mother cooked up. :)
