Morning All:

The much better half asked at about 3:30 "What's for dinner tonight?"...I reminded her that there were a few pieces of picanha in the freezer & also saw some Yukon gold potatoes that is what became dinner...mixed the potatoes with a few carrot chunks, coated with Olive Oil & a generous sprinkling of Dizzy Pig Mediterranean-ish into a cast iron skillet then on the Egg...after about 45 minutes added the sword of picanha (along with one small end piece)...

Pulled the skillet when the potatoes were done & opened up the Egg to finish the picanha...just off...

My plate...It was GOOOOOOD!

Best part is some leftover picanha for some meals to be determined over the next few days!

Have a GREAT day!

    Great adaptation to the offering.  Nailed that cook.  Congrats.

    Looks wonderful!  There's something cool-looking, ancient ways or something, about the folded picanha on the flat skewer.  Don't imagine it tastes any different than it would if it were just cooked the regular way, but it just looks cool!  Great stuff!

    Nice.  I agree on the simple part too.

    Morning All:

    Thank you for the comments --

    Theopan -- I agree that the sword full of meat does look cool

    Botch -- The new gasket is because it is a new base section, the other one has had a crack for about a year & I finally got time to replace it...also replaced the hinge/band system on both large Eggs while I was at it.

    Have a GREAT day!

    My friend that’s beautiful. It always seems the meals my family loves the most are the simple ones. I would have devoured that.
