Tonight Mr. Egg did me proud. My friendly butcher cut me some 1 3/4 inch sirloins (NY strips) As the Little Woman doesn't appreciate too much spice in or on her food I ground up a tablespoon full of GOP and covered half of the steak for me. Wasn't really sure about the cook time so I guessed and dang! Mr. Egg did it! 4 min. per side at 650* then a 9 min 'rest' everything closed.
When I removed my steer meat it was perfect. Warm and red on the inside.
The GOP weren't quite as spicy as I had thought they might be though they gave me a wonderful "zip" (it's the only word I can think of) and the flavor was so different I was pleased beyond reason. The Little Woman tried a piece of mine and wanted more. She, like me, had anticipated a lot more "spice"...
I'm a happy Member of the Cult of the Egg.
Thanks to you all. Hope the weekend was as good for you as it was for me and TLW.
