Prime Ribeye Cap Steak on the Minimax

bgebrentbgebrent Posts: 19,726
Costco had these on sale for 14.99/lb. We picked up a pack and cooked it. Roasted at 325 and then seared on the MM. I pulled them at 130. I believe ribeyes are better with a little more rendering, MR-M. Roasted the broccoli on the egg while the steaks were resting.  N made sautéed mushrooms and bakers.  The wine took it to the next level.  Cheers brothers.

    Pete, for me and my family it’s as good a cab as you can get.  It’s got all the complexity and depth you want in a fine cab but it has super smooth nose and finish.  It’s my favorite Cab.  FWIW.

    Fine cook, sir. 

    Almost cooked the same meal. Pops is visiting, so I did ribeye caps too. With braised cabbage and ‘shrooms. Baked taters too, since he loves them.

    Yes sir that is a great meal right there, and looks fantastic!
    Have you tried unrolling and cooking?  I do kind of a mini reverse sear.  I go, indirect to about 90F to get some smoke on them. Remove, then go really, really hot to desired doneness. I prefer rare steaks, but for the cap, I like medium rare for the reason you state - it renders a hair bit more of the fat.  Opening them allows more crust and a bit more space for that fat to escape.  There is plenty on this super rich cut of meat. After I opened and cooked it the first time this way, I doubt I will ever cook it tied again.

    As always, it looks mighty fine brother Brent. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    Checked out the Jordan Cab. Reviews. Bravo indeed! That would have to be a treat for this schlep. Of course given the looks of the cap steak, it was warranted.

    Great cook and result.  Nailed it. Way to celebrate Ground Hog Day.  ;)
    I'm with @Sea2Ski regarding unrolled vs rolled but either way a true banquet.

    Beautiful cook. I'm jealous that your caps are at least 5 bucks a pound less than here in SoCal. I love them but I  have a hard time justifying them when they're more than king crab legs, lobster tails, or Ahi.
