Steak and chicken on Bob

Postby TX Sandman » Sun Jul 13, 2008 11:23 pm

The MIL developed a migraine, which wiped her out today. Me being at least somewhat appreciative of the outlaws, I offered to cook dinner, which was readily accepted. Menu turned out a little different from originally planned, but was still good.

Appetizer was slices of mozzarella, breaded in seasoned bread crumbs and fried. There was supposed to be a salad as well, but I was too busy to get it ready.

Cheese being breaded, frying, and drained for serving. Good stuff, but you need hot oil and keep the cheese in the fridge before frying. That way you'll get a good crust before the cheese melts all over the pan.

On to the fire. I decided to play a bit with a wood fire, as opposed to lump coal. To that end, I filled my chimney about 1/4 full with lump (from a previous cook) and about 1/2 a chimney's worth of pecan chunks. Lit it like I normally would. Look at those flames! Eventually, though, the flames died down, leaving a glowing bed of coals.

It was still too hot for me, though, so after it burned down a bit, I was ready for the meat. Chicken breasts marinated in a Greek vinaigrette for a couple of hours, and ribeyes seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and onion. Served with a baked potato, butter, cheese, and sour cream.

I still can't cook a steak. These ranged from med-rare to well, but they were all tender and juicy. The chicken, OTOH, was almost perfect. A good flavor from the vinaigrette, with some other touches from the caramelization of the meat. Leftovers of both for sandwiches or other dishes later.

She-yah. That was trying to help out the MIL, kinda repay her for feeding the family while I'm at work all week.

I still feel this cook. Just that small cook took more out of me than I thought.
