The Butter Steak: What's the Best Way to Cook a Steak?

I'm not interested in carbonizing the surface of the meat. To me that ruins the flavor. - Alain Ducasse It was a bachelor weekend of sorts. My wife mercifully let me pass on attending a wedding of an old family family friend, so I had the whole weekend alone in the apartment to get work done. I had some crazy projects planned including a mad braise of a cow tongue, but the first night alone was all about pure unrestrained male gluttony. I bought a bottle of wine, a potato the size of a shoe, and an enormous rib eye. This should have been a simple meal, one requiring little skill beside turning on the stove and plopping a pan on a burner. My initial thought was to mimic the technique nearly every serious steak house in the Midwest does: broiling it under an inferno. But I was a little taken aback by what I read. And it's science that I don't quite understand. Though I am intrigued by the science, what honestly sold me was the serious food porn on eGullet's site. Still I had my doubts.

Food You Can Make in a Coffee Maker Like so many before me, I was once hungry in college. With term papers looming and the dining hall already closed for the night, food had to come from somewhere. That was the night I learned to make ramen in my coffee maker. At first I was nervous, pouring the hot water over noodles in my bowl, covering them, and letting it steep. Eventually, I became more adventurous: cooking the noodles in the carafe; putting the seasoning packet in the basket that normally holds the filter; adding an egg.

Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper I have a comment on this comment, then I have a comment for the OP. To Amy: Removing to foil is simply a way to keep the steaks warm whilst resting (FOR 5 MINUTES AT LEAST… ALWAYYYS!). When the OP says remove to foil, he/she doesn’t mean to wrap them tightly. They mean to place them in a plate, and form a loose ‘covering’ of foil. Leprechaun Trap Cake This may look like a perfectly innocent cake meant to lure a leprechaun to the top but it has a few secrets.

#Keto Recipe: Chocolate Coconut Cream Cheese Balls (OMGosh!) : Wicked Stuffed I needed something sweet and delectable today. I now get odd cravings for foods I used to hate before, specifically coconut and chocolate. I can’t explain it, I imagine it’s like pregnant cravings because until now I never in my life craved (or even really liked) these two ingredients. Tonight I remedied the situation by concocting chocolate coconut cream cheese balls, which were semi-inspired by CrossFit CatCave. There’s no real recipe, but here are the ingredients:

Take-out at Home: Mongolian Beef Ordering take-out can get expensive and who knows exactly what is in that plastic or Styrofoam container they hand you. After some research* I’ve found that Panda Express’ Mongolian Beef has 1000 mg of sodium per serving. PF Chang’s Mongolian Beef has 1340 mg of sodium per serving. Pei Wei’s Mongolian Beef has 1400 mg of sodium per serving. Its recommended that you do not consume more than 1500 mg of sodium daily. Now I usually don’t pay very close attention to calories or daily allowances (I’d rather just eat fresh, wholesome food) but those numbers are ridiculous. The ice cream you’ve never seen before (32 pics) This is one cool recipe. I would not have enough patience to do this, though I love ice cream. But it can be a great surprise for your friends )
