Friday Night Surf & Turf

Decided to do steak and lobster for dinner tonight. Very pleased with the results. Had some wet aged New York strips in the freezer (set out this morning to thaw) and went to the local grocery store this evening and bought a couple of 2 1/2 lb. Atlantic lobsters. Did both on the egg and served with a baked potato and caesar salad. We only ate about half the lobster so plenty left over for some lobster salad this weekend.

Cold beverage to enjoy while egging

Boiled lobsters for about 5 minutes and then put in ice bath. Split in half and brushed with a mix of butter, lemon juice, s&p and minced garlic


image

Flipped lobsters over about 7 minutes into the cook. Steaks were flipped every 2 minutes or so


image

Steaks were at IT of 130* at about 20 minutes, lobster needed another 6 or 7 minutes

Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    I got to ask because I'm a lobster fanatic. Do you prefer your lobsters boiled, steamed or grilled? Just curious my friend.

    @SGH, not sure I have a preference as I love lobster! This was actually the first time that I've grilled it myself and it turned out really well. Once I got those 4 halves on the the egg I barely had room for my steaks but, in the end, everything worked out really well.

    Go for it @Dawnl. We weren't not celebrating anything special; just had a hankering for steak and lobster. $65 for the pair at Sobey's but, boy, were they ever delicious!

    Excuse my ignorance, i am new to this egg (mine hasn't arrived yet, only ordered it yesterday) but very keen to do some lobsters when it arrives. What temperature was the egg at when you flipped them after 7 minutes? They look amazing!
  • TexanOfTheNorthTexanOfTheNorth Posts: 3,917
    @therealhaddock, I was cooking raised direct at around 375*.
