So, old college friend coming over with her husband. They were arriving at 8, it was my first day off in over a month. I wanted a meal i could start an hour before they came over.
We had a sausage hanging in a kitchen for about a month now, we brought it home from Paris. And we have had this pork pate they told us not to but in the fridge.. Needless to say, i ate a buch of both a couple hours before people came over. I figure, if i get sick, then better me than them. if not and it tastes good, I tell them the story and they can decide to eat it.
Steak is perfect. And the steak was perfect. dry aged ny strip from Paisano's. little less than 2 lb each.
and some bone marrow
Stopped at the greenmarket and picked up some kale for a salad with the steak and some squash to roast.
With the marrow bones, I made a salad of watercress and a few different types of mustard greens. two purples and a green. make a salad of lemon and olive oil. Served with beautiful toast from Ben Cuit, grilled and rubbed with garlic as well as a Blood Orange Marmalade.
We started with a really nice 02 Rioja and then moved to two really nicer Barolo's that my friend brought. Needless to say, i had no trouble sleeping last night. This is an action shot after order had been dissolved.
Cooked on a burning hot green egg. temp was 125 when i took it off.
