'Cos it comes in ahead of perfection, see?
Tam scrubbed the grill proper down this afternoon and we grilled a couple of steaks tonight, filet mignon, over the fancy hand-blown charcoal from Fresh Market ('cos we had plenty left from last year). I didn't do anything much with them, just a slathering of Irish butter (why? Because I can) plus pepper and a little salt. Butterflied mine and left Tam's a big thick slab'o'beef.
They were wonderful. Spot-on in done-ness, mine medium and hers rare, with that fine grilled taste and melt-in-your-mouth tender. A good green salad and Indian spiced rice on the side: yum!
The grill at Roseholme is nothing special, one of those inexpensive, rounded-cube things; but my, oh my, $32.98 American was never better spent on cooking equipment.
