Big Green Egg - EGGhead Forum - The Ultimate Cooking Experience...
We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

My wife got some Ribeyes (not very thick, about 1 inch) that I thought I would try the TRex method of cooking. So here we go.
Started out with the temp cranked higher than my dome thermometer could go (700 degrees). Let that baby rip for about 10 minutes -- really did have the "lava" look in the egg. Put the steaks on for 90 seconds each side. Here's how they looked coming off the Egg after the sear.

DSC_0056.jpg[p]Then put the steaks back on the Egg (had been resting off Egg for about 20 minutes. Here they are coming off the Egg after about 6 minutes (they aren't very thick so shouldn't take too much time).
