|Plump, Delicious Breasts...yeah that will draw some fun with keywords.|
|Check out the texture!|
|The Kobe Rib Eye......a taste explosion.|
|The fat was like butter....so we threw it back on the grill as I like my butter soft.|
Got together last night for the much awaited grilling of the Kobe Steak. With a light dusting of seasoning and a quick braising on the grill with almond and pecan smoke to infuse the meat we went full bore as I also picked up a nice cut of Lamb and a bottle of Marques de Caceres Reserva Rioja.
The steak was fantastic but it was odd as the 1/2 meat 1/2 fat marbling of the steak had a taste/texture that was unique. I likened it to driving a Celica your whole life and then allowed to drive a Lamborghini. Even when you have a top notch steak, the fat tastes like butter but its not completely marbled to the extent the Kobe was.
One other dish I made I wanted to report was grilled french fries....yes you heard that right Grilled French Fries. I took a couple of thick Russet Potatoe's and cut them into thick Steak Style Fries as to not fall through the grill, put them in a ziploc with olive oil, parsley, Penzey's Season Salt, and some minced garlic. To say they were a hit was an understatement. I had made them thinking it would be a good snack for the Kids to munch on but much to my surprise all of the adults loved them as well. Served with a squeeze of lime and a side of Japanese Mayo was a wonderful appetizer and use of the grills Hot Time.
All in all a wonderful evening with wonferful food and wonderfull people. Wonderful.
