Curry’s Culinary Corner: Steak for Dad!

By | Angus Meats, Buy local, Grilling, Holidays | No Comments

In last month’s Culinary Corner you learned that I have a mother. Well, guess what, fans? I have a father also. And since the dawn of time dads have been asked, “What do you want for dinner on Fathers Day?” And I’m guessing the number one answer to that is, “Steak! A nice big juicy tender steak.”  Now, how do we get that juicy tender steak for Dad?

Here are some things to consider:

  • First is the grade of the meat.  Choice or Prime?  Spoil Dad and go Prime all the way!
  • Second, marbling.  Marbling is the white fat in the meat.  Fat is where the flavor is – so the more fat, the more flavor.
  • Third is the cut.  Steaks from the loin and the rib will be very tender and juicy.

So now that we have the steaks pick out, how do we cook it to perfection?

Get your grill on! Need I say more?

Heat grill to medium high. Lightly oil the grates and let them heat up.  Now it’s time to get your grind on. Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper. Yes, salt and pepper…kosher or sea salt as well as black pepper. Fresh ground salt and pepper are a must in this case.  Finally, place steaks on grill and let cook about 3 minutes per side (for rare).

Grill temperatures vary, but in general, a 1-inch thick steak will take about 3 minutes per side for rare (140 degrees). Add about 1 minute per side per half inch of steak and another minute per side for desired doneness (rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, and well).

Happy Fathers Day, Dad!

February 29th – National Surf & Turf Day

By | News | No Comments

Now, we must ask: Why would anyone make Surf &Turf Day fall on February 29th? Should we celebrate this tasty holiday only once every four years? Perhaps it’s put on Leap Day because of its ostentatiousness—it is, after all, a dish that combines the two most expensive dishes on the menu, lobster tail and filet mignon. We like it.

Of course, mankind has been combining meat and seafood in meals since the dawn of plenty. Fine dining establishments served both lobster and steak on the same plate in the last quarter of the 19th century. Diamond Jim Brady was just one of many gourmands whose table was laden with both beef and lobster. But the disk known as Surf and Turf (or Surf ‘n’ Turf, to be even more vulgar), is an American invention.

Not just for the 29th, consider Surf and Turf for a scrumptious Valentine’s Day dinner paired with a lovely bottle of wine.
