Flank steak was Sunday's dinner. Another simple meal since Mrs. Pittard and I were exhausted from the Eggfest. Also, flank steak is something I've done successfully many times in the past, so I could achieve two results. 1. Test how much better/easier a tried and true recipe is on an Egg vs. my firebox smoker/makeshift grill, and 2. Learn how to control the temp of the Egg while not having to worry about making good food since this recipe is on auto-pilot. The flank steak was marinated in Dale's, W-sauce, and lemon juice for about 4 hours.
I fired up the Egg again, this time attempting to not let it go nuclear from the get-go. I really undershot it this time, so it took a while longer to get up to temp. Things finally stabilize around 450° dome and I threw on some baking potatoes and began to enjoy a few beverages.
Guess those beverages go to me as I forgot to take pictures of most of the rest of the process. Once the potatoes were done, I took them off and brought the temp down to around 325° dome and took out the plate setter to go direct on the flank steak. Cooked it to 110° in the thickest part, pulled it off and opened up the Egg again to get a little bit of a sear on the steak.
Pulled the steak at 130° in the thickest part and let it rest for a few more minutes. Simple plating, but a perfect doneness. I prefer not to flatten out the thicker parts of the flank steak when the in-laws are eating with us as they like a more medium to medium-well. So the thicker part is perfect for me and SWMBO at the same time the thinner parts are good for the in-laws.
Mrs. Pittard wasn't feeling great, so she rested for the evening. I enjoyed me dinner date with the other lady that stole my heart though.
She's definitely my kid. She couldn't get enough of the steak and potatoes!
Another simple meal, but a good experience with the Egg. All around this meal was much easier to cook and I love being able to go from 325° to 550° in just a few minutes. I certainly learned a lot about temp control and knowing how long it takes the Egg to fully heat up.
