    Followup to steak request: result

    We ate at CUT, at The Venetian.

    Those were the best damn steaks I've ever had, in my life. They are slow cooked to temp, then seared at 1200* for the finish.

    We chose an appetizer of prime filet mignon “carpaccio,” celery hearts, truffle hollandaise, and white truffles from Alba, Italy. Holy heck. That was unbelievably savory. Taste, texture, look, everything.

    Salad, we chose a Pink Lady and Fuji apple salad, with walnuts, dates, and cheese. Just beautiful.

    I chose a dry aged 8oz American Wagyu New York strip from Snake River Farms, Mrs chose a dry aged American Wagyu 9oz ribeye. Both steaks were unbelievably succulent. I ate with my eyes closed to concentrate my senses on taste. I cut small pieces so that there would be more of them, and it would take longer.

    For sides, we chose mac & cheese and sauteed baby spinach. The mac & cheese was good, but not as good as a well made crack & cheese. The spinach was excellent. But who cares about the sides.

    Expensive, and worth it. You might not want to go there once a week, or once a month, but you should go there once.

    Mosca ...

    It sounds like you and the wife had a great meal. Hopefully you had a great bottle of wine too.

    I only order steak at a restaurant when I'm out of town away from my grill. I'd rather spend the extra money on an exquisite cut of meat and reverse sear it myself.😎


      Mrs doesn't drink, and I'm a beer guy. I had an outstanding German Pilsner that I can't remember the name of.

      Dining out is entertainment as much as it is the food. If the restaurant staff do their job, the value goes up considerably. Most casino steakhouse dinners are either comped or expense accounted, we were neither which affected the value equation for us. It's kind of like having a hospital visit with no insurance.

      Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

      The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

      This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
