Necessity is the mother of invention..so what's on sale?

Pin It I haven't had a porterhouse steak in about 30 years..really. The other day I received a flyer from Milam's (IGA) here in Miami, with their porterhouse and ribeye steaks on sale for $6.99/lbs... so away I went. Now, let me tell you... I lived in North Carolina in the 1970's and all we could get there were ribeyes, so after I left that lovely state I never looked back, particularly on ribeyes. For the next 20 years all I ate were NY strips, until tonight... OMG, if you, like me have forgotten about this cut of meat, get one! Just marinade for about 10 mins in Worcestershire Sauce and Webber's Chicago Steak Seasoning and off to the grill! French fries or baked potatoes and a salad, and you died and went to heaven. I was also lucky to have a bottle of Chateau Roquefort 2005 which I opened for the occasion. Chocolate, chocolate chip ice cream for desert, anyone??

  2. It’s true. I never had a Porterhouse or Ribeye for the same reason. Until I moved to Georgia. I had a GREAT Ribeye last night. I know it may have more fat in it compared to the strip, but shamefully... that was what made the meat so much tastier. Not as good cold as the strip or the London Broil. But certainly a meat that can take pan-frying better over grilling which is not always the most convenient thing for me. I wouldn't do that to a strip. but it's great for both the Porterhouse and Ribeye. Best results came from a cast iron skillet and a touch of butter. I know I know… FRYING?? BUTTER?? You just gotta do what you gotta do.
