One Big Steak!

edited June 2012 in EggHead Forum
I stopped into a local market today to find something for dinner. They had some Cowboy steaks for a decent price...$11.99/lb. I picked one up for the wife and I to split. This thing was 2.99 lbs! They were also calling them Tomahawk Steaks. I had to cut the bone down to get it to fit in the Egg though.

I seared it on both sides and, as I was going to be cooking a butt later, I put the plate setter in and let this baby finish up indirect. Stuck a probe in it, and pulled at 125°... let it rest for 10 min. and then sliced into it. I think it turned out very well. Was a nice medium rare. Had a nice salad with greens from the garden to go with it. Plenty of left-overs too.

    Looks really nice...but that's a ridiculous amount of rib bone they left it on.
  • AleBrewerAleBrewer Posts: 555
    Yeah...it is a bit crazy.
  • Ale, Question? Im doing some Cowboy steaks tonight and was wondering how you finished off the steak? Did you put any sauce on it or just salt and pepper? I was thinking of using garlic pepper and some onion powder. This is a first for me, I normally cook just the ribeye but I heard the Cowboy steak was way better?
  • AleBrewerAleBrewer Posts: 555
    I'm a minimalist when it comes to steaks. I salt and pepper them right before hitting the grill. And no sauce for me either, thanks. I will sometimes lay a pat of butter on the steaks while they are resting...depends if my wife is watching or not!

    I always try to get bone-in ribeye... I prefer them to boneless.

    Good luck with the steaks!
  • OK great Ill stick to the basics. Ill let you know how they turn out.
  • looks awsome ! never seen anything quite like that in any markets we have around here

    Don't mean to be a debbie downer but it looks like a bad by to me. if I want to go to bucher to buy a bone I certainly wouldn't pay 12 bucks a pound. But the meat looks good

    Nice steaks, would be great to see steak cut in half to see doneness, good learning tool

    I was thinking the same thing. Basically a way to extract more money from the customer for essentially nothing. I'll pass.
  • I'll pay a little extra for a good spectacle : )

    It is a site to see.
  • c'mon- it's a $36 steak and he paid maybe $1 or $2 for the extra bone at most. It was well worth it to do it once and post some great pics. hell, if he has a dog it's cheaper than going to the pet store and buying one of their "fresh" bones for $7. I wouldn't do it all the time but it was all in fun.

    Thats the true definition of a caveman steak, I have never seen anything like that before.

  • Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos Cooked two great cowboy steaks tonight and they were outstanding. Worth every penny.

    Looks Great

    Anyone know where to buy great meat like this in Orlando?

    I know it quite a way away, but in Melbourne, there is Wassi's meats on Wickham Rd.  Very nice people, plus they are a BGE dealer, and have great pricing on the BGE product line! 

     

    As far as the cowboy ribeye goes, the bone adds alot of flavor, and while it is a spectacle, it also serves a purpose.  I know it is not cheap, but the results are worth it

    OMG that is in a league all its own!  Looks tasty though!  Great job!

    Steaks look great Hopkins!  If you can find a dry aged, bone-in ribeye.....I highly recommend trying one of those.

    As for a bad buy, a couple of bucks for the extra bone sure isn't gonna kill me. And, as Cen-Tex pointed out,  my dog got to enjoy it too. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one from the same place. I've been called foolish for spending $12 on a four pack of beer when I could have bought a 30 pack of something else and had change to spare! Heck....I've spent more than $20 for one single bottle of beer....it's all about what you like.

    Interesting. Never seen a steak like that before.

    I see a business opportunity there. Load your Egg up and take it to fairs and festivals. Cook a bunch of those things up and sell them. Comes with a handle for customers to eat it right off the bone.  ;)

    That's what the butcher said as he was wrapping it up

    @AleBrewer, that's a nice looking knife?  in the background as well. Do you think you could post a better pic of it?  I'd like to see it

    That's no knife....it's a custom made grid lifter. It was made for me by a member on "the other" forum.

    When I get back to my room later, I'll see if I can find a better picture.
  • Is that a brontosaurus steak from the Flintstones???
  • Looks like a "Fred Flinstones" steak. Nice..!!! Going to try this weekend.
