Filets on Cast Iron

Been awhile, but finally remembered to grab my camera. Simple cook, but one of our favorites. Forgot to get a sliced shot, but it was a perfect medium rare with a great crust.

    Nice, hard to beat a good steak cooked using cast iron.

    You are so right @Skiddymarker. Screaming hot cast iron + BGE = perfection.

    Cut shot?
  • DredgerDredger Posts: 1,453
    Sorry @Eggcelsior, I forgot to get a cut shot. I'll do better, I promise. However, it pretty much looked like this one from a previous cook.

    Looks great. I like the salad too. Hard to beat a nice baked potato and salad with a great steak.

    Thanks @Duker15. I agree about the sides for a great steak @GregW. Now fettuccine alfredo and steamed broccoli are great for prime rib, but not a steak. At least not at our house.

    Thanks @JohnnyTarheel. You can only get that crust using CI as far as I know.

    Thanks @SMITTYtheSMOKER. Steaks on the egg is one our favorite cooks. @theTrim, as you know, the egg makes it easy. You're most welcome @YukonRon. The egg makes a great argument about never getting steak out at a restaurant. We prefer to save ourselves the disappointment. @NPHuskerFl, not only do I spin, I also flip, and sometimes, just throw something on there and let 'er ride. Case in point, meatloaf is on deck for later today.
