Oh no doubt, I always combine a post simmer anyway. It never comes out of the pressure cooker right since moisture is retained.
Yep! When you make a ton of stock it's essential to reduce it, if only for storage purposes. All flavor is retained but it takes up a fraction of the freezer space!
I frequently reduce the stock a lot and then freeze in ice cube trays. The last bit of stock in the pot goes into different ice cube trays and becomes dog treats.
Kyser seems pretty excited about this batch. [cheers.gif]
What a great idea, might need to do this for my Oreo. He loves his ice cubes.

Skirt steaks from Rain Shadow Meats, using The Pioneer Woman - Ree Drummond’s fajita marinade. Fantastic recipe (see below). Couple of thoughts - don’t let it sit overnight; the citric acid in the limes will cook the meat (think ceviche). Also, the marinade has quite a bit of olive oil, which makes it taste great, but know that it is one step short of pouring gasoline on your fire. Be careful putting the meat on and the first time you flip... and use your vents aggressively to manage the fire and smoke for the first couple of minutes. Cook direct over a mix of lump charcoal and wood chunks. As always, more on my Instagram at @AKGrill

Flannery 28-day NY Strip (it was raining, so I did it inside on cast iron, with the reverse-sear method). I salted it overnight on a rack in the fridge which is why it's so bright red.

I made it up, obviously (patented)

I did about an hour, 250 degrees, pan-seared. Awesome. Next time, with a cut that thick, I’ll do same temperature but high smoke for more flavor

You sure you didn’t get the recipe from your junior high school girlfriend? You know, the one no one ever met, b/c “she didn’t live around here”....... cheesehead

If you’ve got the time, try the low and slow method on the lowest possible heat setting of your smoker. Gives you more time to sear the beef in the cast iron.

Approximately how long would that take? 2 hours? Why would I want to sear the beef more in the cast iron?

Depends how low you can go with your rig. As much as the Traeger is maligned, the fact that it smokes best at low temps is perfect for my style. On a cool night or day, it will chug along at 125 degrees +/- 5, with spikes to 160-170 degrees when pellets get chewed up/ignited.

Lower internal temp when you pull the protein off the smoker means more time you can spend searing it in the cast iron. 15 seconds more per side may not sound like much, but it can be the difference between a solid sear versus a moderate sear.

Say hi to your Canadian super model GF for us...... neener

You can sous vide up to the temperature of boiling water.

Joule says 147 degrees is well done and 154 degrees is very well done.

You can sous vide to any temp you like (max on my Joules is 208°F, I've gone as high as 203°F, but not for steak!). There may actually be an advantage, if someone is insisting on a higher level of doneness, that the steak will be more tender than if it was cooked traditionally at that same temperature. Since sous vide is slow, it gives more time for connective tissue collagen to convert to gelatin and for endogenous proteases to tenderize the meat (although they will loose activity at higher temps), and also for fat to render on the interior.

Re: Steak Porn

Posted: June 19th, 2020, 8:56 pm

Cooked at 350 to 115 internal, cranked to 500 and pulled at 128. In hindsight, I should have pulled the steak when i turned up the heat so I could have driven a better crust. First time on a Traeger, so I’m ok with it :)

Also would probably have cooked at 300 and taken longer on the front end of the “reverse sear;” we started late and kids were complaining about being hungry.

I also would have pulled at 123, personally, but my friends wanted medium/med rare.

That's my only issue with reverse sear at 225 degrees - doesn't render the fat on some cuts of meat. Works great for filet and less fatty cuts.

If I’m trading off between rendered fat and driving the steak up to a medium temp, I’ll take the former. We usually cook to rare, especially on a prime/dry-aged cut.

Either way, was fun to try out the Traeger, but I’m a much bigger fan of open flame / cast iron skillet for steak.

Hahaha, "Flannery Defender!" I love it. And, yes, I too do the same thing. I love my kids but, at seven and ten years old, they can eat "normal" steak when we serve it. Don't get me wrong: it's still nice stuff, but not the Flannery (every time). I gladly share the hangers (their favorite) because one package is enough for the whole family. However, when it's a NY or ribeye, one steak is perfect for me and my wife, but I'm not willing to thaw another for them to eat some of it.
