Mmmmm...nice one Legan, making me all hungry. Not that it's a problem as I'm sat here waiting for the missus to finish her make up so we can out to our fave local restaurant for dinner. Fingers crossed they'll be a nice bit of steak somewhere on the menu and hopefully scallops for starters.
I always have me home steak with a homemade BBQ sauce consisting of

Mostly Tomato sauce
Bit of english mustard
Dash of worcester sauce
Lots of Tabasco

Lovely!

As you can tell, I don't care for presentation. Just look how perfectly the steak has been cooked though...

I reckon a cast iron griddle is the way to go if you only have a gas hob.

Clothes Airers > Griddle Pan> Cast in Style > Cookware > Griddle Pan

You can't get a frying pan hot enough, and I don't rate grilled/over cooked steaks.

Best steak I've ever had was in NZ at a mates place.
He slowly cooked some thick cuts from a local butcher on the BBQ - perfectly pink all the way through and they were so tender they practically melted in your mouth.

They only way to get the really good stuff is from local butchers. Supermarkets are a waste of time, at least in the UK.

That'll do as a nice starter, but the cost of crab in Japan is insane !!

Nice1 Sky 1t - guess what me & the missus had for tea last night cause of this thread & the pics - that pepercorn sauce came out nicely too

as xaero sais - so damn nice i'm cooking it again tonight

A great big fat juicy Rib-eye marinated for a few hours in a combo of teryaki sauce, mustard powder, sugar & crushed garlic then seared for a few mins either side on a smokin griddle pan & served with cajun potato wedges, sour cream & chive dip & a side salad - smothered in that pepercorn sauce

Peppercorn sauce

butter
double cream
Peppercorns ground in pestle and mortar and add to pan
Add flour to thicken

Simple yet effective and none of this Carnation rubbish

Waitrose Aberdeen Angus beef is about as good as supermarket steaks can get imo

I'll be having steak tonight but i like it rare, rare, rare in the words of Dennis Leary "Just bring me the cow i'll carve off what i want and ride the rest home!!"

I use a griddle pan just like the one pictured on my halogen hob , get it hot add a knob of butter and then the steak

^Oh Ben those garlic flakes on top of the Steak are beautiful mmm...think i'll have to give my local Japanese Tapanyakki a visit soon.

It's expensive Ben like you said but you ain't lived 'til you had Japanese food, especially when a Chief cooks it in front of you while entertaining you at the same time by juggling the food & breaking those eggs on purpose.

Unforunately most of the Stoneage/Old fashioned people in the UK still think that all Japanese food is raw fish & would rather have a greasy portion of fried fish n chips.

I am partial to a bit of home made barbecue sauce with a good rare steak, covered in butter, salt and pepper - then dry-fried, then finished in a pre-heated (hot hot hot) oven for a couple of mins. Should be a good inch and a half plus thick.

Barbecue Sauce

1/2 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Brown sugar
3 tbsp Vinegar
1/4 tsp Mustard powder
2 tbsp Cooking oil
1/2 tsp Pepper
Pinch Salt
1/4 tsp Paprika
1/4 cup Water
1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Add all ingredients to pan and get to simmering point for 5 mins.

had myself a ribeye tonight, nice big one, australian though. I had already had a bit of chinese after work, but then this thread got my stomach growling. Had to go out and pay for a good chunk of meat.

In the Yanomamo language, there are two words for hungry: one, meaning truly hungry, and the other, meaning you've eaten and so are technically full, but it was crap veggies and you are craving meat big time.

How much does a kilo of ribeye go for in the UK?

Wow Ben, even with a 'poor' photo that looks superb. I can see chopped chilli's and garlic which combined with that steak looks mouth watering!

Agree with whoever said that Waitrose do the best supermarket steak but if the missus is cooking in any quantity for a dinner party etc she uses Costco...you'd assume that it's going to be great chunks of cheap meat but it's even better than Waitrose. The Tuna and fillets we get from there are sublime.....

I understand why some people want their steaks done medium but, for me, it has to be rare every time! Can't beat a really good bit of 1.5inch+ fillet that's just been shown the grill/bbq on either side.

Tonight though, as the missus is in London and I can't be arsed cooking I shall be calling on the lads at Artemis for a large lamb shish kebab (as per below) or if I'm feeling more unhealthy the full mixed special (apologies for polluting a steak thread with pictures of filthy kebabs but I know there are lot of 'bab lovers on here...)

Not sure there is a market for artistic shots of kebabs lol. I took these two as a demonstration of a womens saturday lunch versus a blokes saturday lunch. Her's might win on aesthetic appeal but I know I enjoyed mine so much more...(cheeky small doner)

I"m useless with her Nikon D40 but they do make them 'babs look appealing!

if your in FL you must go to DelFriscos on Lee Road just off the I4, it isnt a tourist trap its a real i am USA locals/celebs/footballers only place. Trust me i've been eating steaks in the US for 17 years. Or Charlies Steak house on the I-Drive, bit more touristy though!

I've been to Florida and had all manner of steak meals out there (who hasn't actually)....I don't recall the quality being as good as a prime bit of aberdeen angus? Might have been going to the wrong places but I recall quantity being the priority over quality (quality was good but emphasis seemed to be on putting half your bodyweight on the plate)

thanks dave i think were down i-drive tonight,after the epcot 4th july fireworks so by the time we,ve managed to get out of there i,ll be ready for a steak.
all the placesi,ve been in the USA and had a steak the standard has been far better than the uk and half the price for twice as much
thats one thing in the uk that greats my gears when you pay top money for a steak when you go out,when it comes you have a job to find it on your plate,and by the time you have cut the fat of it it,s only half the size it came out the kitchen
i think sky its got the best idea cook your own

Where you going in the UK, Harvester?????

I don't exactly dine with Ramsey personally but even the 'good' restaurants I go to, I've never had to cut any fat off a fillet. In fact, I can't recall a time recently where I"ve had a fillet and left any of it on the plate due to grissle or fat.
Not saying the steaks aren't better over there but not grumbling at some of the ones I've had over here...
