Caught me, charliecompany34. I’m planning on doing rib steaks, my favorite. We don’t have them often, but I haven’t been able to kick the habit totally. I will probably do some asparagus on the side with cheesecake for dessert. It’s just us since hubby is till working—for now. The grilled peach idea sounds fantastic! Pour a little balsamic vinegar over it.

Flank steak that has been marinated in a garlic, olive oil, habanero, pasilla, salt and pepper paste, and another that is marinated with several different secret sauces. I let them both soak for 24hrs, then wipe them clean and grill them up to medium well, after letting come to room temp first of course! I ate a pound and a half by myself last week. Yummmmm.

@stevenb: hmmmm, surprised that you wipe marinade clean. never tried that before, but i, for some strange reason, see your point.

Grilling is my thing.

I picked up a pack of ribeyes and like a simple technique for a good cut of meat like this – just seasoned with kosher salt & fresh-ground black pepper. High heat to sear, medium heat to finish. Medium-rare. A little tiny bit of oak wood smoke and a brush of butter while they’re grilling.

If anyone wants Worchestershire or fresh horseradish, it’s at the table.

16 oz. Rib Steaks (or 16 oz. T-Bones or 20 oz. Porterhouses) shipped direct from my butcher in Nebraska.
Thick slices of jumbo-sized Sweet Vidalia Onions shipped direct from one of three farms I buy from in Georgia
Sweet local corn, roasted on the grill, in their husks

@Charlie it keeps it from burning too soon.

@pupntaco: (sound of car door slamming. engine turns over) Address please.

@ WTF: try grilling the corn out of the husk over medium heat, lightly brushed with butter, seasoned with salt & pepper. Let the kernels get browned all over. You’ll never go back!

@ mitch: LOL

@PnT: Sounds great…I’ll give it a try. I’m good for at least two so I’ll do it up both ways. Thanks and enjoy the holiday.
