The kids and #1 son were down this week….They and the other half played while I had to work..Bummer! 
My consolation for not playing with them… #1 son had dinner was on the table when I got home…what a reward! 
He treated me to his red cream pasta sauce over Ziti with egged pork tenderloin, peas with egg-roasted carrots. 
The next night was pork scaloppini in a white wine reduction, served with the leftover pasta, , garlic bread and leftover veggies  (If I wasn’t already married I would marry him.).
Friday night I thought it was time to treat him to a great egged steak served with his signature creamed spinach, grandma cabbage casserole and egged baked potatoes. 
The veggies

Veggies for the cabbage were roasted on the egg until tender and then thinly sliced. 
To the sliced veggies added a dash of rice wine vinegar, Lea and Perrins, Dizzy Pineapple Head (my contribution) and salt and pepper. Added to one tablespoon of bacon drippings and sautéed until coated, added the beer mix and sautéed for 15 minutes on low to reduce. Placed in pan topped with panko bread crumbs (we are all pretty sure grandma used crackers) and placed on the egg to finish cooking) 

The steaks…only have two Costco steaks left (we pick up our portion of the cow from the butcher on thrusday). 
All could have been done on large and mini but I was too tired to do stairs 
 Dueling Smoke
The reverse sear
chilling out
plated (yes the grandkids eat their med rare)
#1 grandson had 2 large helpings of the steak… 
3 adults + two hungry kids = no leftover steak 
Everything was wonderful and Grandmas cabbage was delicious….(it was only later we realized we forgot the apple) 
Oh yeah, the taters were sliced partially opened, topped with Irish Cream butter and chives.

    Looks like a real nice Thank You cook.  Love the roasted cabbage idea.  Going to have to give that a shot.

    Very nice cook girl. I sure suggest you get a "handler" on that Egg. Have on both Larges and feel so much safer in moving around.

    Would you accept a live in refugee from Canuckistan? Holy smoke, that's awesome. Like the cabbage casserole idea, never seen that. 
    Have a half head in the fridge leftover from slaw we had a couple of days ago, will try with a pork loin roast tomorrow. Thanks!

  • It was really fun listening to #1 son tell his kids about his summers with his "country" great grand parents.  He told them how grandma taught him how to churn butter and the oldest just ask him why he just didn't go to the fridge.  Ah, the modern connivence's.

  • @ Mickey Do they make a handler for the small?  I am really careful when I roll it around....The only eggs I want to break have yellow centers.
