CI seared filet

One of my favorite steaks is a pan seared filet.  Used to do them on the gasser and side burner in a CI skillet, and tonight decided to try on the Egg.  Fired her up to 600 and heated up the CI griddle direct (will need to re-season the flip side).  Applied a generous dusting of Texas Roadhouse Rub to the steaks, added a few tablespoons of clarified butter to the hot griddle, then seared the steaks for 2 1/2 minutes a side.  Removed the griddle (be very careful, as it's got a lot of hot grease and not much of a lip to hold it in), then finished to 125 IT direct on the grid.  Some of the best steaks I've ever cooked.  Great crust, melt in your mouth tender.  The Texas Roadhouse Rub and butter gave a great flavor.

    Ask and you will receive.  This was after setting for a while.  The one I ate was a bit rarer.  These will be tomorrows sandwiches for lunch.

    Those do look great TJ!  I don't have a CI grid...but I do have a CI skillet!  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg wing.

  • Good idea, TJ.  The only time I've used a skillet with a steak is when I make Steak Diane, and I need the steaks to be in a skillet when I burn the brandy off.  I like your idea of searing them in the pan, then cooking them on the grid.   =D>
