Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

Steak and taters

I thought I was defrosting a London Broil (didn't really look), and it turned out to be four very nice filets. What was I to do? "The Bandit" was comming over and was expecting London Broil. [p]I franticly looked in the pantry and found some "good ol'" Char Crust![p]I lightly coated the filets with Chili flavored oil and then char-crust. Next, on to a very hot egg (2-2-4). Well, it was one of the best ever, better that steaks with a mustard jacket and juicy as possible. Needless to say, London Broil was not missed. Only thing I need was a few taters. Any cooking suggestions (remember, the egg is 700-800 degrees)[p]Smokey

    Smokey,[p]See Nature Boy's post below for one idea, they come out pretty good. I usually nuke the taters on 50% power with the seasoning on them until they soften up a bit. Then coat with oil and grill.[p]The other is to stop by Wendy's and get a baked potato and side salad for something quick as a side. I don't usually do the Wendy's thing, but I had some extra folks show up for a party and it really saved me. You can take the potato out of the foil and place on the egg to dry out the skin a bit to help get rid of that steamed taste.[p]Zip

    Zip,
    Wow you are organized!
    Great idea about the quick nuke first. That would really help when cooking with the steaks, as the browning time is very short.[p]I have been doing these a lot lately, cuz it is so quick and simple. I find they work best about 450-500, but can be done along with the steak if they are around the edge. They can burn very quickly depending on how much direct heat they get, but usually only one or two slices bite the dust when doing at steak temps. You have to move quickly when flipping, and you won't loose any to the coals if you use 2 grates rotated 90 degrees to each other. Once they are browned they are done.[p]Gonna do some tonight along with some boneless thighs in Stubb's marinade/baste.[p]Cheers.
