It’s that time of year again-time to hop on out to your backyard for an EGG hunt. If you’re lucky, you’ll only have to search as far as your patio! Planning on cooking Easter Sunday? Check out our Easter Menu. If you’re looking for a sweet treat to enjoy with the whole family, try at least one of our sweet treats, if not both: Grilled Peeps & Carrot Cupcakes. Lastly, if you’re having company, our Pinterest page has lots of ideas for entertaining. We hope you have an EGGstra tasty holiday!

  • Re: Evolution of a table, enter the Blackstone

    Nice job on the set up! 

    I have one of their flat top grills (griddle) and it is extremely well made and cooks like a commercial flat top.  If this pizza cooker is as good as that flat top I know you'll be happy with it.

  • Re: London Broil ... Low and Slow or Sear? Tender ???

    Part of your confusion is probably the fact that "London Broil" isn't a cut of meat (it's a recipe/technique) although a lot of stores sell different cuts of beef labelled as "London Broil".  There's no telling what cut you're getting, it could be top sirloin, flank, top round, etc. 

    So what one person says works for London Broil might actually be using a different cut of beef than what you have.  If it's flank steak, I just do a quick cook (450-500 x 4-5 min per side).  If it's a cut from up on the shoulder, it's going to take longer to tenderize so I'd do a slow roast or reverse sear type of cook.

    Another one to go onto my "cook this soon" list.  it is growing faster than I can cook things off of it.

  • Re: Reverse Sear Question

    For best reverse sear results, I like to cook tri-tip up to 5 degrees less than my desired final internal temperature.  Then I'll let that rest, uncovered, on a raised rack so the tri tip isn't resting on a flat counter or plate (doing it on a flat surface kind of steams the surface of the meat touching the plate, causing more juices to flow out).

    For me, the key is letting the meat rest until the internal temperature stops rising.  Then I'll put it back on to sear for just 1-2 minutes per side and the temp rise is negligible at that point.

  • Re: The Better Upgrade

    I got a Sous Vide Supreme and it works well but after a few uses, it found its way back into the basement closet.  I don't use it often at all, I'd much rather have a reverse seared steak. 

    So if I had to pick, I'd go for the AR :)
