Loaded Quesadillas On Steel

Randy1Randy1 Posts: 373
edited May 2013 in EggHead Forum
I have a brother-in-law that is a welder. He cut a steel for my large 16" by 1/4 . I seasoned it and wanted to try my signature dish....quesadillas! I seasoned the chicken and cooked it. Next I assembled the Quesadillas. I have been perfecting these for years. I use Monterey Jack cheese, real bacon bits,green onions , and tomatoes. I have learned to melt Crisco then let the tortillas cook in it ,for a flaky texture. The steel did great, no sticking. It being a home made one I wondered if food would stick. These turned out great! imageimageimageimageimage

    Jesus 5/8ths of an inch thick? how much does that thing weigh?  Nice looking quesadillas!!!!

    @Scottborasjr I don't know what I was thinking. I had 5/8 in my head for some reason it is just under 1/4.

    @randy1 looks great- did they pick up any good smoky flavor off the egg?

    Thanks. @Wolfpack come to think of it, very little if any smoke taste.I put a chunk of mesquite in before cooking the chicken so it would.

    Thanks for the info Randy1, thought i had it covered, but the Prudhommes product i have is blackening seasoning, but i'll pick some up this afternoon and try it - that looks interesting and i know the wife will go for it!!  Your cooking the dillas slow to get the insides cooking and melting - right?

    Great cook!  I could see 'dilla's being done often around the house if they turned out like that!

    @henapple I just wiped some canola oil on it and fired the egg to 500 and set on in my spider.I let it stay on it for an hour or so. It turned from grey to black.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but I haven't followed any of the "steel" threads.

    How is doing it on a steel plate any better than doing it on a CI skillet.  Here, I'm doing shrimp quesadillas in a skillet.  Worked well.  

    (Sorry Focker, I know it's not innovative and I probably stole the idea from the experts on your forum)

    Your ignorance is forgiven. One is cast iron and the other is steel. The same, only different. Why does it have to be your way all the time?
