Perfect ribeye recipe

1-2Ē thick ribeye. The thicker the better
(I personally do 3-4Ē thick)

Olive oil
McCormick Montreal steak seasoning
Dried tarragon

Cover steak to taste with seasoning and tarragon. Drizzle both sides liberally with olive oil. Let marinate at least 3-4 hours. Longer is better.

Sear on hot grill. Cook to your desired doness.

Thank me later.

The tarragon adds an amazing flavor when you sear the steak and burn the fat.

Everyone I have shared this with swears by it.

Also works wonderfully on my Christmas prime rib.

Fool proof prime rib

10-15 lb boneless prime rib

Season with tarragon, salt and pepper and any other seasoning you like.

Drizzle with olive oil

Preheat oven to 450 F

Put prime rib on rack in roasting pan add water to bottom of pan

Place in oven. Turn oven off in 60 minutes.

*** Do not open oven door. ***

3-4 hours later (you have some flexibility here)
Turn oven back on 350 F. Cook 30 minutes.

Take prime rib out. Loosely cover with foil and rest for 10-15 minutes.

Slice and serve.

End pieces med-well. Next couple slices medium. Center slices perfect med-rare.

This has been my go to technique for the past 15 years. Near perfect to perfect eveytime.

I buy T-bone, filet mignon or Ribeye usually 2 times a week from Albertsons or Walmart(I like the T-bone the best). I lightly season it with garlic pepper. Sometimes I'll add fresh rosemary or thyme(I grow myself) to the pan with olive oil. While it's resting, I grill some onions or mushrooms in the leftover juices with a little butter. Occasionally I will make some au jus or some kinda sauce for it just to mix things up.

Unlike BillRyan, I pay a little more than 99c for my steaks.

I have become a Flat Iron steak guy. They are relatively cheap and very easy to cook. I heat my grill up as hot as I can get it and cook the flat iron for 3 minutes on each side for medium rare.

I have heard it's kinda good, but have yet to try it. I have been turned off by the name for some reason. I like really tender steak. I hear packing them in salt will tenderize any steak, That sounds like too much work and a waste of salt, but I might try it next time I get a NY.

Oftentimes I will fry the filet mignon first for a few minutes on each side untill it caramelizes and then add it to the preheated oven for about 8 min.

Flat-iron steak is something of a compromise. probably 85% as good as ribeye at 60% of the price. But us rich b45tards don't look at the price of food, do we, Axel. $:o) Life's too short.

Thirteen tiny little squares of shredded wheat came out of the package, so I added one more and had milk and cereal for breakfast. Water, then water with lemon juice a few hours later. Lunch was five tablespoons of garlic hummus.

Ramen from Japan - you have to buy in an Asian store or on the web

way, way better than the cheap China ramen you get in Safeway

costs more but still pretty cheap - 5 packages for $5.00. add a little chicken and your tasty dinner will cost only about $3.00

We did a bonfire at a pumpkin patch 2 weeks ago. We cooked hot sausage with onions and peppers and corn on the cob in the embers.

Best corn I ever had. I saw online somewhere. Soak corn in husks in cold water with a little salt. Soak for about 30 minutes. Take corn in husks directly from water into the embers. Cook about 15 minutes. I left one in for nearly 30 and it tasted the same. It was the most juicy corn that I ever had.

I had beef fajitas because seasoned beef flank fajitas were reduced $3-$4. Never tried fajitas, so I went for it. I guess it was so-so to good. The funny thing in order to save $4, it cost me a lot more because I had to buy red, yellow, orange and green bell peppers, plus sour cream, tortillas, guacamole, taco sauce, salsa. Didn't really need the salsa or guacamole probably, and I'll have a lot of it left over, but the spend was around $20. Also purchased things to make tacos, so these things will have use, although they're also unnecessary unplanned purchases.

Making fajitas and tacos at home seem to get expensive. We ate doing tacos tonight. By the time you buy the peppers and meat you already have $20 tied up in it. Over the weekend we went to chilis. They have 3 for 10. You get a drink, appetizer, and a meal for $10. Fajitas are one of the choices. Plus I had a coupon for a free kids meal so the 4 of us ate for $21.

Stirred up some gyro meat, threw in some seasoned roast beef, some green peppers and onions, a splash of teriyaki sauce and some heaping servings of Trader Joes Tzatki cucumber dip., served on pita triangles.

Where can you buy gyro meat, is it pre-cooked, if not, how would you cook it properly?

I have a place near me that has good gyro's. I buy pita bread(or whatever you call it) just for this situation. I will ask for double meat and extra Taziki. I then chop up my own onions and tomatoes and get 3 meals out of it.

I dust my gyros with a little ground cayenne pepper to give it a nice little kick.

In NY and at Trader Joe's, gyro meat is a mix of beef and lamb. In Vegas, they mostly use only lamb .

Trader Joe's sells the meat, presliced. Grill it for a minute on each side. They also sell the pitas and tzatziki sauce.

I am really happy that under Trump you have been able to switch from the $1 store to Trader Joe's for your meat source.

I used to eat a lot of gyros from gyro kits I bought at Aldi, but I got tired of them completely. They're good, but once you defrost a package, you feel obligated to eating gyros for the next 5 meals. 5 gyros for $7 kind of ruins getting 1 gyro for $5-$10 even if they're loaded with meat, or not loaded with meat, like at some casino restaurants.

Trader Joe's gyros are refrigerated, not frozen and a package makes about three sandwiches.

I had never heard of them before. It looks like they actually own Trader Joe's. Supermarkets in NY and on Long Island for the most part are much smaller than in Vegas and don't carry as much. Rents are just too high. The same company owns most of the chains so little competition or incentive to modernize.

Aldi is a grocery store actually owned by Trader Joeís I believe. Great budget store, wal mart or better prices without wal mart experience employees paid decent and decently staffed. But limited selection of things.

Went to Chic fil a for the first time tonight. I had a gift card for $10. There were two car lanes with about 7 cars in each one. But I ate inside. The place is always busy. And I hear that you should especially avoid the lunch hour. The food was good but nothing special. I wanted to really like it. Good service and great staff.

Itís always busy but they handle it well. Certain McDonalds or Wendyís seem to completely choke when things get hectic, but Iíve never waited more than 3-4 mins for my food at Chik Fil A.

I never do the drive thru though. Sometimes at the one location near me the line gets so long it overflows into the street and starts blocking traffic.

I had a chicken club sandwich since I needed to get a meal combo for at least $10 (because of the gift card). The meal included French fries shaped like little waffles with holes in them. 20 years ago I ate French fries several times a week. Now I eat French fries once a year.
