restaurant steak

Had $100 gift card to Longhorns so we went out last Saturday after the week from hell. I ordered the LG filet.. "and how would you like that cooked"...I said a perfect 125. It came out perfect. I started to take my thermapen but Sher-bear threatened me. Lesson, order to temp.

    Man, I would have a tough time telling them what temp as i'd be scared they would spit on it.

    Next question, do you think any of these guys use thermometers anyway?  If cooked steaks for a living, I would probably never probe it.  Eventually, you just know by feel and what it looks like.  I did a butter basted CAB Rib-Eye on a cast iron pan with no Thermapen and nailed a perfect medium-rare so it kind of proved to me my pen wasn't needed.  Could I have done that 3 years ago, probably not.

    When I cooked at a restaurant as a kid we went by feel. I've seen a lot of the restaurants I work at use thermometers. ..I always ask for temp on pork chops so I'm not eating jerky.

    Yes cazzy...they had restaurants back then.

    Ha. We too had a gift card to longhorn. Went last Thursday. Ordered a med rare ribeye. Within a few minutes the plate was covered in oil. It was the greasiest, saltiest steak I've had in a while. And they didn't have yuengling. [-(

    I wish I could get that feel thing down, it seems like every cut "feels" different. I never ordered pork chops out.

    Was there color TV too?  Did you invent BBQ?

    That's sad. I have hair on my head so the only hat I wear is the foil one to keep the government from stealing my thoughts. You might see some of those in Sochi in a few weeks. I hear the US Men's hockey team will be wearing them. Heh heh heh
