And I didn’t take a picture.  I laid down on the floor, took a nap the wife pulled my dinner out of the oven.

It is really easy and fast if you can make a white sauce

We picked up an air fryer,  it’s been a good addiction to the cabinet


Tonight we did some cod fillets and put them in tacos, with fresh avocado, tomatoes, cheese n what not.  Pretty good for fast meal

So let me start out with a little information for you to read before the next post:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piedmontese_cattle

There is a company here in lincoln called certified piedmontese and has what they consider a high end steak house.

This beef is considered to be above kobe/wagu

So tonight i had my very first dry aged steak.

This slab of 20oz bone-in ribeye was dry aged 100 days and served medium rare with a house made aujus reduction.

I will admit that either i am completely oblivious or very misinformed on how a steak should be served.

1. The steak was served just above lukewarm....as in not even hot enough to melt the gorgonzola compound butter.

2. Large portions of the exterior were quite crispy.

3. If dry aging gives the flavor of what i had this evening.....they can keep it.

All in all....i cannot say that my experience was worth it.

     They rested it too long, server was slow to pickup, don't know what they're doing
2. Large portions of the exterior were quite crispy.
     Meat guy did not trim properly, HARD portions should be removed entirely exposing a tighter, denser, but still soft interior. Also, could have been under the salamander too long on one side
3. If dry aging gives the flavor of what i had this evening.....they can keep it.
    I'm sad your experience was like this. El Gaucho if you're in town will change your mind, (and empty your wallet)

You can do much better sir, which is why I don't go out to each much anymore. Get you a porterhouse and get cracking. I expect a full report.

Not sure when I'll be heading back down to Nebraska. If I get a promotion at work I'll probably be coming down to take some training in Omaha. I'll let you know.

i will be the first person to honestly say that i never believed in what Japanese MISO and dashi could bring to a recipe/dish. 

well, last night i gave it a try and all i can say is "where have you been all of my life?!" I HAVE NEVER tasted a steak the good in my life!!!!!!

last night for dinner (i was using my newly modified towels :grin:) i made grilled T-Bone steaks with miso sauce and some roasted potatoes.

here is where i got the miso sauce recipe from:  https://andrewzimmern.com/recipes/grilled-ribeyes-with-miso-sauce/ 

Miso Sauce:
- 3 egg yolks, 4 if your eggs are small
- 1 cup Japanese blond miso paste
- 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup sake
- 1 teaspoon dashi no moto instant dashi powder

instructions
1. Mix together all of the ingredients for the miso sauce and whisk over a double boiler until the the sauce is thickened.  (bring it up to 160-165 temp)

You've set the bar pretty high for the coming suitors to those young ladies of yours. No one is going to be able to cook like dad did. Gonna be tough on those young men...I should pray for them!
