Steaks come in all shapes and sizes and depending on the section of the cow they originate from can have a huge influence on price and cooking technique. According to Jimmy, “You may want to choose a cut like Flat Iron or Flank Steak if you are serving a larger group.
Consider buying a thicker, multiple serving premium steak such as a Porterhouse or Bone-in Rib-Eye. Return the sliced steak to the bone before serving. It is a very nice presentation for a small dinner party. Thicker boneless cuts such as New York Steak also make great multiple serving steaks.”
MESSY FOOD OF MY LIFE:
I have many passions in my life, being my family number one, medical science second, then not in any particular order: traveling, cats, cars, music, cycling, movies, farming, gardening, blogging, reading, learning languages and food, I love food, it’s one of my true passions, and there’s a special kind of food I love.
Today is a wonderful day to take it easy. It is calming and peaceful, and boy I am hungry! I have been taking care of my calories and exercising, bicycling and jogging for quite a while without a break. Today and tomorrow I rest and it’s time to enjoy the Food Day.
So here it is what I am planning to eat with the family:
Food Dungeness Crab pan roasted in Chermoula Butter
Steak and Eggs….Yummy!
CRAWFISH BOIL with Potatoes and Corn on the Cob
Cake for a Dessert Fun Time!
DELICIOUS LAMB RECIPE
- 4 tbsp rose harissa pesto (see Know-how) or 2 tbsp harissa paste
Finely grated zest and juice 1 lemon
2 tsp ground cumin
2 tsp ground coriander
Small bunch fresh coriander, leaves and stalks chopped
2.2-3 kg easy-carve leg of lamb (see Know-how)
1 cucumber, halved, deseeded and sliced
300g mixed radishes, quartered (or sliced then quartered if using the larger watermelon radishes)
100g whole skin-on almonds, toasted in a dry panSmall bunch fresh mint, choppedHandful fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
2 tbsp argan oil (see Know-how)
2 tsp runny honey
Juice 1 lemon125g
Roast potatoes to serve
Heat the oven to 160°C/140°C fan/gas 3. Mix together the harissa pesto or paste, lemon zest and juice, ground spices, fresh coriander and plenty of black pepper in a bowl.
Put the lamb in a roasting tin and rub with the marinade (see Make Ahead). Roast for 30 minutes, uncovered, then pour 300ml water around the lamb and cover the tin tightly with 2 sheets of foil. Roast for 4 hours, basting with the cooking juices once or twice, until tender.
Transfer the meat to a chopping board and rest for 20-30 minutes, loosely covered with foil. Skim any surface fat off the pan juices, then taste and keep warm (or simmer briskly for 5-10 minutes to intensify the flavour if it’s not punchy enough).Meanwhile, prepare the salad. Put the cucumber, radishes and almonds in a serving bowl and toss with most of the herbs. Drizzle with the argan oil, honey and lemon juice along with plenty of salt, and toss well. Scatter over the remaining herbs and pomegranate seeds. Serve dish, carved into slices, with the salad and crispy roast potatoes.
BRAZILIAN STEAKHOUSE …. Simply delicious!
If there are two things I love about food Brazil style, they are steak and cheese bread (Pao de Queijo).
There is something about Brazilian Steak; it’s meaty, tender, juicy, oozing with right amount of food, and perfectly grilled and charred. It’s so delicious!
The original steak recipe from Brazil
- 2 pounds strip steak, trimmed
- 2 bunches flat-leaf parsley, rinsed and leaves stripped
- 1 bulb garlic, trimmed, peeled and crushed
- 1 lemon, for juice and zest
- 1 lime, for juice and zest
- 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grilling
- To taste flaked sea salt
- To taste freshly ground black pepper
- Combine parsley, garlic, olive oil, lime zest and juice in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.
- Position rack in center of barbecue; preheat gas or charcoal grill to 350°F (180°C). Brush grill with oil to season.
- If refrigerated, allow the steaks to rest at room temperature for 30 minutes prior to cooking
- Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Rub half of the chimichurri sauce over the steak.
- Place steak angled on hot grill for 2 minutes, flip for 2 minutes, turn and flip 90° for 2 minutes, flip to finish 2 minutes.
- Remove from the heat when thermometer reads 5°F lower than desired doneness (Rare = 125F; Medium-Rare = 35F; Medium = 145F; Medium-Well = 150F; Well = 160F)
- Cover loosely with aluminum foil and rest for 5 minutes. The temperature of the beef will continue to rise, approaching desired doneness while resting.
- Serve steak with remaining chimichurri sauce.
…get it out and throw it away. I would throw away all ground beef bought even after the day that the USDA has given (see below the *). USDA inspected and beef was released for sale. Where and when the contamination occurred? Remember, your health is first.
*Recalled products will have the establishment number “EST. 267” inside the USDA mark of inspection.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced a massive recall of more than 6.5 million pounds of beef products that are contaminated with bacteria Salmonella Newport.
The Food Safety and Inspection Service division of the USDA says the health risk is high in the Class 1 recall.
|USDA Recall Classifications|
|Class I||This is a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.|
|Class II||This is a health hazard situation where there is a remote probability of adverse health consequences from the use of the product.|
|Class III||This is a situation where the use of the product will not cause adverse health consequences.|
The establishment JBS Tolleson, Inc. announced the product recall, which includes ground beef, were packaged on various dates from July 26, 2018, to September 7, 2018.
At least 261 types of products with various brand names were shipped to New Mexico according to the list of recalled products.
Showcase/Walmart was the primary brand of recalled meat with other brands being Cedar River Farms Natural, Beef and Gourmet Burger.
Symptoms of salmonellosis usually occur between 6 to 72 hours after you ingest the bacteria. The most common symptoms include:
diarrhea, which may contain blood or mucous
dehydration, especially among infants and the elderly.
