A steak story

Post by biglove » August 2nd 2018, 3:58pm

For Conjurer...

"This is a story about me and a steak. A 24-oz. A5 Wagyu ribeye steak, to be more specific..."

No foody here.

I'm good with whatever they have at the supermarket , a bottle of A-1, and a beer or 4.

I liked it.


I liked the article too. I'm not sure I like being mentioned in the same sentence as Dave Barry, but then, Barry's made a whole lot more money on his writing than me, so what the fuck do I know?

I do know that Wagyu is the shit. It will fucking ruin you for regular steaks. I've only grilled Wagyu steaks from Snake River Farms in Idaho, which run about $25 a pound; I grill it on very hot coals for a couple of minutes a side, and let it rest for about ten minutes. Granted, it wasn't as purty as the shit in the article, but I'm not Warren Buffet, either, and it's not a $250 steak. In my experience, Wagyu goes from medium rare to shoe leather in the blink of an eye. After you eat it (and a one-pound ribeye will easily feed two normal adults, or in the case of me and my wife, one normal adult and one abnormal one) a regular ribeye will taste like something at fucking Sizzler.

Oh, Jaysus. I see a few things I'd like for Christmas, although I'm highly unlikely to get 'em.
