Yesterday was a super fun day around the ol' RV here. We haven't had steaks for quite some time and decided that we would simply BBQ some rib steaks. I don't know about you, but if I'm going to have a steak, I don't want just any old steak...rib steaks, Porterhouses, T-bones...that's what's in my freezer, baby!!Dixie showing off the nose that gets her in heap big trouble sometimes...
I let Bob have the camera for a minute and I told him that he only got 3 shots of me, no more...I HATE my picture being taken!
I think I shall call this picture "Smile".
Dave really enjoyed being outside all afternoon.
Puppa decided to get down and dirty...
and Sasha got caught in the act of rooting around in the dirt...see her nose???
I figured if Bob got to take pictures of me, I got to take pictures of him....GOTCHA BOB!
Neighbor Bob got out his 3-wheelers and I rode that yellow one for the first time. I've been nervous to get on one of those contraptions because of my knee replacement 4 years ago, but I got on and had a blast! First time for everything.
What else goes with steak? Steak fries!!! I cooked these outside because it was just too warm to start up that deep fryer inside. I covered the freezer with newspaper and cutting boards and went to town!
I kept the sliced potatoes in a bowl of salted, cold water and drained them really well on paper towels before they took an oil bath.
I made these Belgian style. Belgian style is twice fried. I fried them partially done, pulled them out, drained them on paper towels and let them cool for about an hour.
Mmmmm....rib steaks! I don't go for those chintzy thin cut suckers, either...if I want a steak, I want a steak! We buy these when they are on sale for $4.99 a pound and wait until they are in the marked down meat section at Safeway. They are, by no way, shape or form, past their prime...they are aged and steaks are like wine, they get better with age!
First fry on the potatoes...
After they cooled down all the way, I reheated the oil and put them in again and fried them until they were done and golden brown.
Like this...salt them as soon as they come out!
Steak, steak, glorious steak!!
Flame-broiled rib steaks....
Can you imagine the taste? These are simply seasoned with sea salt and applewood smoked ground peppercorns...DELICIOUS! I don't go for marinades or any of that jazz...I just want the flavor enhanced when I grill.
This was the end to a great day of fun and good conversation...
No, I don't use a gas grill...I wouldn't have one around my place...charcoal all the way!
The hen...errrr, men...clatch!
