Why go out for steak?
I’m not big on going out to eat steak. Unless it’s a good steak restaurant, you’re likely to get an overcooked, over-sauced hunk of low quality meat that’s better off ground into burgers. And if it’s a high-end steak restaurant like The Grill on the Alley, you’re likely to pay a very high price for your dinner. (Forget about going out to eat steak anywhere on holidays like Valentine’s Day – you’re likely to wait an hour just to get seated!)
Annie bought some USDA Choice, thick-cut, bone-in ribeye steaks from Costco for $4.99 / lb (sometimes they have Prime cuts for $8.99). About an hour before cooking, I brought the steaks out of the fridge and seasoned them well with sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, and granulated garlic.
