Kristi is arguably one of the most talented cooks on our forum and she continues to inspire me to try to do better with every entry she makes.
She has been in Alberta Canada this week enjoying the scenery and food.  Most of the posts on her Facebook, however, have been of food  (I love a woman who posts a picture of six slices of bacon when the Canadian Rockies are just outside her window).

Yesterday, she posted a bison steak with caramelized onions and mushrooms.  It looked yummy, so I gave it an attempt with a bovine ribeye steak.

I didn't get my fire hot enough for TRex before time, so I did the cowboy approach and seared it directly on the coals.

But, things went well after that and I pulled at 140˚. Perfect medium rare.  I put the caramelized onions on top of the steak and the mushrooms on the side, because my wife doesn't care for mushrooms.

Excellent meal.  Thanks Kristi !

    Oh yeah?  Well, she offered to fly me to SF to speak at a seminar she's giving for some Chinese culinary delegates. I am to teach them the proper methods of stir frying.  I told her "first class" or no go.

    Nice looking meal.  Love caramalized onions especially for French Onion Soup.  Here is a spread that I have recently made from trying to duplicate a gift from ennie meenie as my elfster this past Christmas.  Worth the effort and great with cheese and crackers.








    Condiment, Spread, Onion, Balsamic, Caramelized
     





















     
































    INGREDIENTS: 
    4-6 Medium  Onion of choice, Vidalia or other sweet best, Chopped fine 
    1-1 1/2 Tbs  Crushed Red Pepper 
    2 Tbs  Garlic, Minced 
    1/2 Stick  Butter 
     




















    5 Tbs  Turbindo Sugar 
    1 Tbs  Lemon juice 
    10 Tbs  Apple Juice 
    5 Tbs  Balsamic vinegar 
     












    PROCEDURE:
    1Take the onions and dice fine. Add butter to cast iron pan
    and then the onions. Now the finely minced garlic and the crushed red pepper
    flakes.
    2Over low heat stir for about an hour until they are wilted
    and starting to turn brown from caramalization. Add the sugar and stir for
    another 15 minutes. Then the rest of the ingredients and stir until a medium
    thick paste forms.
    3Cool and serve with crackers, cheese, hamburgers or whatever
    sounds good to you.

    How can you sear directly on the coals without getting ash and grit all over the steak that does not seem like it would be very good. Has anyone else ever done steaks this way.

    Sure, a lot of people do it that way.  For some reason, the ash doesn't stick to the steak.  In this case, one large (about 2") piece stuck, and I just flipped it off.

    None of the fine ash that would cause a problem are sitting on top of the coals, at this point of the fire.

    seems really weird and would be scared to ruin a good steak by throwing it on hot coals might have to try it on some cheap meat to see how it works

  • GriffinGriffin Posts: 7,066
    I haven't done a steak, but I've done veggies directly on the coals for a salsa. Tomatoes, onions, japs and I thinnk there was something else. Everything just brushed off.
