I am thankful for a lot of things...my family, health, but one of the top thankful things of 2013 is my discovery of the Big Green Egg and this forum.
It's been six months that I've had the egg and I just love this new addiction!
Yesterday was my birthday and I wanted a treat. I've always eyed those USDA prime steaks at Costco but never had the balls to spend $40 with the risk
of over cooking them. Well, now with the help of my little green friend I know I could nail it. I have been utilizing the reverse sear technique but instead went for the T-Rex technique and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I also usually get the NY steak, but wanted to try the Filet Mignon, Peppercorn crusted style with a butter/blue cheese topping
Warming up the peppercorn in olive oil, which softens the taste of the peppercorns to not overpower the meat
Peppercorn put in filet and had the filet stand for 30 minutes as I got the BGE going
Final part of the T-Rex method
Resting, here I added the butter/blue cheese mix
