N.Y. strip, caveman style.

After the eggfest last week, I got curious to do a steak caveman style. Mine was an inch thick prime N.Y. strip. I wanted a leaner cut than a prime rib eye to avoid a complete fire.

Man, it cooked quick - 3 minutes a side and it was medium. I buttered right of the fire to break up any char.

Very good flavor, unique texture that is different from a reverse sear. Salty fo sho.

    Great cook. 

    They do go fast.  I usually do 2 minutes a side for my wife for filets that are the same thickness and it comes out to the rare side of medium-rare.  I go a little longer on my own steak to make it medium. 

    They go especially fast when done in an egg because the ceramic holds the heat above them and they are cooking on all sides.  I've cavemanned (is it s verb?) in a variety of vessels (home firepit, campground firepit, wheelbarrow, XL BGE, Weber kettle, ProQ smoker) and the surrounding temperature can significantly affect cooking time.  For example, on a 35 degree night with the charcoal on the ground at a campsite, the steaks take 2 or 3 times as long to cook because the coals are not as hot (poor airflow from below) and the surrounding air is near freezing.   But, the steaks still taste great.

    @Foghorn... don't hear of many cases like your's where the wife prefers her meat less "cooked" than her husband. She sounds like a real "keeper".  ;)

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    Her dad was an MIT grad who had a subscription to Bon Appetit.  I grew up in a family where it was hard to tell the grilled meat from the briquettes that were used to cook it.  I've worked my way down the doneness scale over the years. 

    And after 20+ years of marriage I'm definitely keeping her.
