My daughter invited my wife to go out to an NBA game this Sunday. Good for her. They’re sure to have fun.

So since I’ll be doing dinner alone I splurged on a nice steak at the grocery store...a big USDA Choice bone-in Rib Eye.

The damage. FIFTEEN BUCKS! Wowzers.

I coulda bought a tin of fine tobacco and had it shipped for the same cost.

One night of cardiac disaster or two weeks of fine smoking pleasure. You be the judge.

Everyone needs to go overboard once in a while. I would definitely go with the steak...and a giant baked potato

Thanks guys. But no to the giant baker. I go with small red potatoes...salt-n-pepper...butter and rosemary. And...a loaf of grand Central Ciabatta...the best bread on the planet. Veggies? HELL NO!

I’m on the same wavelength but I would add some blue cheese crumbles or chimichuri sauce to the steak especially a ribeye.

I some times flambé a filet to make a pepper cream sauce as well. This recipe can be something of an adventure with the flames and what not...

Yes to the Bleu Cheese!

Roquefort is good as well.

It would have to be a big-ass filet for me.

Yeah...both.


I’m really looking forward to the rib eye though.

Marinate for a while in Yamasa Soy Sauce...sear in a hot pan with olive oil one minute per side to seal in the juices/flavor...finish in a 350F oven for 5 - 8 minutes...rest it for 8 - 10 minutes...EAT!

Then dive into the deckle.  The best part of the cow.


(Before you freak out over the soy sauce...try it.  For both beef and chicken it’s the BEST pre-cooking treatment.)

Try the Soy Sauce and a tablespoon of good Scotch Whisky to marinate, you'll thank me later. bounce

I like Whisky.  It’s “my drink”. Not beer, neither Cabernet nor  Gewürztraminer, not Vodka...Whiskey. That’s the ticket alright.

But, only a tablespoon?  And...is it the alcohol or the Whiskey flavor? Just curious.

I don’t have any Scotch...but I do have some pretty good Kentucky Bourbon.  So...sweet as opposed to Smokey?  It just might work.

I can choose between Jim Beam Black and Wild Turkey 101.  The Beam Black is light and crisp while the Wild Turkey is more traditional and full flavored.  I’m leaning toward the Wild Turkey.

After drinking either JBB or WT101, I'd be leaning also! drunken Laughing

Mr. C write: “After drinking either JBB or WT101, I'd be leaning also!”

Yeah, that’d be me.  I drink so little I can REALLY feel the effect of just one shot.  It takes me nearly a year to finish off one bottle.

If we go out and have a drink (a twice a year event);my wife will have a Lemon Drop Martini or a Long Island Iced Tea (Summer) and I’ll do a Whiskey neat or a Manhattan if I’m feeling “festive”. One.  Unless it’s an open bar and then I’ll have another.  Then, since my judgement has been fairly well impaired...I’ll have another. Etc. But I never drive.

OK - steak has begun its 8 hour marinade.

Official Jack Daniels Recipe:

1/4 c soy sauce (Yamasa)
1/4 c whiskey (used Wild Turkey 101)
1/4 c packed brown sugar (used medium dark)
1 tbsp Dijon Mustard
1 tsp salt
Fresh ground pepper to taste
Dash Worcestershire Sauce

Whisk all together. Place steak in glass dish that just fits it. Pour marinade over meat and turn several times to coat well. Marinate 4 hours to overnight. Turning meat occasionally.

Sear meat in HOT pan 1 min per side in olive oil. Do not handle, move, poke or disturbe meat while searing or cooking. Sear edges as well to seal in juices and flavor.

Transfer pan to oven preheated to 350 F or use preheated baking sheet. Roast about 5 min. or to preferred doneness - knowing it will continue to cook while resting. Rest 8 - 10 min. Serve.


Oh baby!

Alcohol will burn off during cooking, nice piece of beef you have there, the Bourbon should work just fine to give you a great flavour!

I suspect that you have more tobacco in your cellar than steaks in your refrigerator. You made the right choice.

Thanks guys. Indeed. The best steak in the place. USDA Choice...24 Oz. Good marble. Nice large deckle (cap).

And BB - but I got the Tobacco too. So...it’s a win win! Laughing

Well boys...that was worth waiting for. It was arguably the best piece of beef I’ve ever had. Ever. It was literally fork tender.

And allyby...thanks for the suggestion of the Whiskey. Yes, it made a big difference. (I guess, since I didn’t have it without - so no comparison.) But no matter. The flavor was rich and incredible.

The red potatoes were a perfect foil to the rich beef and a couple of hard rolls with butter completed the meal.

Also enjoyed the first red wine (Red Diamond Cabernet - comparatively cheap but epic flavor) I’ve had in several years. Maybe several severals. lol

Anyway, thanks for sharing my fun. Good to have you all along.
