Ahhhhh, yet another of my many simple pleasures of life !!
Now, I really have in the past several years eaten a lot less steak then I used to. It has just become far to expensive to have as often as I would like to have it.
But in this case, due to some good shopping skills and good luck, I was able to get this steak for only $4.00 instead of the packaged price of $8.00.
And as luck would have it, I found myself alone for dinner, and decided it was “Steak & Potato” time.
A nice bone in Rib Eye, nice and marbled. Hard to believe that this steak goes for over $10 lb !!!
Real simple prep.
Black pepper and some garlic salt
Too lazy to go outside and fire the grill up, I think it would require cleaning the garage to find the grill anyway.
So, the kitchen mainstay of the cast iron skillet will do very fine indeed.
Ooooooohhhhh, a very nice sear and delightful crust !!!
Oh yeah, I said something about potatoes being involved.
Now at one time, those things may have been connected to a potato, but they get shredded, processed, pressed into a shape and “VIOLA”, Tater Tot. I suppose that there is enough potato DNA there to legally call them potatoes for this post.
Also made a little compound butter with fresh garlic.
There were no survivors.
