Last Friday night the Husband and I didn't know what we wanted to eat. I didn't really want to cook on such a hot day, and he didn't want any of the take out I suggested. At 7pm, while we were putting the Toddler to bed, I just decided to run up to my new favorite grocery store and look at what the butcher had. Thankfully it wasn't busy and one of the butchers was able to help me pick something out. He suggested the bone-in rib eye steaks that were on sale.
I love rib eye steak. But I am afraid of cooking them. I mean, this is a serious piece of meat and I usually cook steak until it's dead. Since it was almost 7:30 by that point, I took the steak, grabbed some corn and fresh mozz and headed home.
I ended up with this:
All I did was let the steaks come to room temperature, salt and pepper them and then grill them. I lucked out too - they were a perfect medium, just how we like it!
Unknowingly, I had pretty much replicated a recipe in the current issue of Bon Appetit magazine. I looked at the cover while the steaks were cooking and saw the recipe inside. I had some scallions in the fridge, so I grilled those up and re-created the BA cover photo!
The steaks were divine. And even though I didn't follow this recipe exactly, I am sure you would get excellent results if you did!
