I've read all about seared steaks, but was a bit unsure about it. The mustard thing also left me a bit suspicious.[p]Well, please forgive me for all of my doubts. I got my Medium Egg up to well over the 750* mark and placed two NY Strips on her (one with brown mustard and seasonings, the other with a little seasons). The results were GREAT! Girlfriend (not much of a meat eater said they were fantastic. Also, the mustard coated steak was better than the plain one.[p]Again, sorry for not believing the forum and all of its members.[p]Smokey

    Smokey,
    Don't be sorry for not listening, it took Bob about, what, 2 years to try mustard rubbed on meat. He is since a convert.[p]And you tried it, didn't you?? That is the important thing.[p]Congrats

    Smokey,
    I, too, was in the same state of mind at first. But as time went on..took more and more sugestions, and became so happy with the results. And the beauty of it is that it doesnt stop at steaks..these members can give great pointers on almost anything..from baking to cooking wild animals. I can't think of any online family to be associated with. These people are my heroes!
    Heeeee!

    Char-Woody,[p]I'm saved! I'm saved! I see the light! (and saw the flame) There was no "Back Draft" thing, but I was ready just in case![p]Smokey
  • Smokey,
    Here's the deal...it's like some kind of "epiphany" the first time you make those mustard-rubbed steaks! They turn out incredibly tender & juicy.
    QUESTION/THEORY: Since the mustard does not seem to add its own flavor, do you suppose that somehow it seals the "pores" of the meat, thereby locking in more of the flavor & tenderness?
