couple of Costco prime strip steaks.

Grilled over charcoal

And here's one from D'artagnan (though not labeled prime).

With apologies to Santa Maria natives, here is a major bastardization of Santa Maria Barbecue. Sadly not grilled over charcoal (would if I could), nor a tri-tip, nor pinquito beans...

Done to the level of doneness my dining partner enjoys. I prefer a minute or two less fire, but since we share a 12 ouncer, I try to take the less cooked areas for myself, as well as the fatty weird bits...

Subbing for the pinquitos, well cooked @rancho_gordo Christmas lima beans. And some broccoli raab, because...healthy.

No comment on the meat. Ya have to smell the tri-tip from across the parking lot.  I do like your bean sub. Pinquitos are cute and don't need all that gloppy doctoring up, but sure the Christmas (how seasonal) limas were tasty.

Thought about cutting it before cooking and putting your piece on a little later (or pulling early)?

They really call those porterhouse down there?

Apparently they do! Gives new meaning to the phrase “divided by a common language”.

Look like strip steaks (NY or KC)

Unless you are Australian in which case they look like Porterhouse  steaks. 😂

Where in Yorkshire were you? I worked in York for a couple of months in 1980 and I don't recall any Indian or Greek food there. I suppose it's possible I was too enamored of the fish and chips I could get from the street stands anyway.

 

Even more importantly: how did you make that moussaka? I've taken to an Egyptian version, but yours looks so good I'd like to try it.

@SmithyApologies for delay in responding. We've been running back and forth to Winnipeg Health Sciences Centre for day surgery on kidney stones for hubby. Life is slowly getting back to pandemic normalcy. Manitoba is still under Covid level RED until late January.
We were doing gigs in and around Middlesbourough. Of course the fish 'n' chips were the main draw, but we needed some variation when we are there for 2 months. The best fish' n' chips was at Whitby. Must have been the sea air!
The recipe I have used for years is in a book called Eastern Miditerranean Cooking by Roger Debasque - part of the Round the World Cooking Library 1973.


Moussaka for 4 servings:

Basically, it's 1.5 lbs of lean ground beef (or lamb) browned,  2 chopped onions, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 2 ripe tomatoes peeled, seeded, and chopped ( I just chopped!), -parsley, salt pepper. Bring to boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

Have ready  6 tbsp bread crumbs, 6 tbsp grated Parmasan cheese

4 small eggplants, sliced, salted, rinsed, drained, and browned in oil

Sprinkle 1/2 of the bread crumbs into a buttered dish.  Add 1/2 meat mixture. 1/2 eggplant slices, sprinkle with 1/3 of the cheese.

Repeat with remaining meat, eggplant, 1/2 of remaining cheese.

Make bechamel sauce with 2 tbsp butter,  2 tbsp flour,2 cups milk, salt, pepper. Beat in a few tbsp of sauce into 3 egg yolks, then add to the rest of the sauce.

Pour sauce over the dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bake at 350F for 45 minutes.

So many lovely meals since I'd been AWOL for a few days!

After day surgery, hubby wanted comfort food.

Ginger Chicken and Rice in a small cast iron pot

And Egg Foo Young with beansprouts and Chinese sausage

Next day, hubby was feeling better, and the lamb chops made him even better! I cooked the lamb chops in the oven to avoid creating smokey lingering haze in the kitchen, which is open to our upstairs bedroom. The chops turned out lovely.

Curry Beef and lots of onion with Chinese curry powder. It's fragrant without as much heat as Indian.

Tonight,  I picked up 2 $25.00 gift cards for gifts, and got 2 six-inch subs free. Easy supper as I had been making holiday snacks for gifts all day!

Quail have been very scarce around here for a lot of years, but Ronnie went hunting and was able to get three--a perfect meal for us.

Did them in the CSO with mushroom risotto and stewed tomatoes to go with.

My mom started a tradition years ago that we have soup for the first day of winter, so I follow in her footsteps.  I bought myself some cute Christmas bowls and we had lasagna soup last night.
